Insect Lore's Live Butterfly Garden® allows you to watch the miracle of metamorphosis up close.

Love this product. Bought it for my daughter and now for granddaughter. One butterfly actually sat on my daughter's finger for quite a while before flying off on the day we released them. You can reuse it - just buy more caterpillars!

Very disappointed the caterpillars weren't mentioned in the original ad. Haven't ordered them yet. Target service was exceptional.

When it arrived, we found out that it was just the house. You had to order the caterpillars. The package included a voucher for free caterpillars, but you had to pay an additional $7.95 for shipping. It would be helpful if this information was included in the description.

My niece loved this! Yes, catapillars come with it (or larva) and you grow then yourself. You get to see all stages, larva, cocoon, butterfly. Very interesting.

It doesn't state that you have to order the caterpillars. You get a voucher for free caterpillars but you have to pay for the shipping of the caterpillars.
