I ordered a tadpole last July, and was told it was to hot to ship at that point. That come Nov it would be shipped. Finally tonight we received our long awaited tadpole. I would recommend that if you are going to do the tadpole- do not order through the company WalMart promotes. I had a great experience with the butterflies( we are doing it again this year) but went with a different company fo the tadpole- it took to long.
Kids are still excited.
