Live Butterfly kits?

Have any of you purchased one of these and watched the different stages with your children?
What is the best place to purchase one of these kits from?

  • We had one a few years ago. I think I bought it on Amazon, but you can find them in stores now. The kids LOVED it! Our grown butteflies actually went on to have babies. The kids have actually been asking if we can get more caterpillars, and go through the whole cycle again.

  • You can get them in lots of places. They're really neat when they work. The one my son's preschool class had, all the caterpillars either died prior to the cocoon, or died in the cocoon for some reason.

  • We purchased one a couple weeks ago from Barnes & Noble. My 5 year old DD is really looking forward to watching everything happen. It says that it takes 3 weeks to receive the caterpillars and 3 weeks for them to turn into butterflies, so we are waiting until we are 6 weeks from really warm weather...figure the beginning of May we will send our card in for them to be sent to us.

  • My son's preschool class has one for their class pet. 2 of them have become butterflies so far. The kids really seem to like it.
