These helpful little beetles have been beloved by farmers and gardeners around the globe at least since medieval times when it was first noted the aphid-eating, dotty little red beetles could save harvests. Get to know these fascinating bugs better by raising a small brood in this special observation habitat that includes a magnifying port. A coupon is included for ordering 15 larvae you'll see grow into pupae, then winged adults you can set free in your garden (special food included). At least five out of the 15 larvae will develop into adult specimens. Please allow 1 to 3 weeks for delivery; $5.00 handling fee necessary.

My kids loved this!

Comments about HearthSong Ladybug Land:
My kiddos loved this! It was great fun to see the stages of development...my girls (ages 4 and 2) were really into it and looked forward to checking on them each morning. It was BIG NEWS at our house when the first ladybug appeared. The only change that could make the product even better is if the watering mechanism was changed. Currently, you have to remove entire dome to provide a few drops of water. It would be easier (and safer for the bugs) if the top magnifier screwed off to place the drops of water.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Grandparent
This was a gift for an 8 year old boy whose mother is totally into veggie and flower gardening. Ladybug Land served the purpose of letting the young one enjoy his ladybugs developing in their little domed home, and then releasing them into mom's garden. The Ladybug Land container will see it's use for many more insect friends through his developing years, more ladybugs, and untold other insectile critters.

Great Fun for my Grandaughter!
from Fountain Valley, CA
I bought this as a gift for my grandaughter because she is facinated with ladybugs. I also bought the four stage plastic forms, so that she could learn the cycles of growth. She had great fun watching the ladybugs grow and was fine letting them go in my garden when the ladybugs matured.

I would buy this product again and again

Caring for the ladybugs, watching them hatch and then releasing them in the garden was not only great fun but a great learning experience as well.
