I purchased this for my 5yr old great grandson so he could see how butterflies come to life. We sent for our caterpillars after we received the butterfly garden. They sent 6 tiny caterpillers & it is so much fun watching them grow & they are now starting to hatch into butterflies. We watch them everyday & can't wait to see their beauty.


fun and educational

Our six-year-old granddaughter loved the Butterfly Garden, and it is so sturdy that she can use it again and again. It is also easily stored until the next use.

We've had so much fun with this! You get the nursary and then order the caterpillars via mail or Internet. [...] We waited until the weather was consistently above 50 degrees so we could release the butterflies. Fun for the neighbors, too. We all learned a lot.
