    I am just about to send for my 8th caterpillar refill, and am still awed by the amazing transformation from humble caterpillar to beautiful butterfly before my very eyes. It is a privilege to behold, and such a wonderful feeling to watch them float away on the Summer breezes. Thankyou

    I bought these for my minded children last year and even the parents were excited as our caterpillars developed, it was amazing to see them come out of the cocoon and their wings fill with colour. I have just bought this year's caterpilars-can't wait for them to come now!

    My 7 year old grand-daughter loves these. This is the 3rd year we have sent for them. They all have hatched out into lovely butterflies, which gives her great pleasure to see them fly off on sunny days. 04/06/2015

    It was easy to keep and instructions were easy to follow. I have just let my butterflys go and one even landed on my hand. I will watch for them in my garden.

    We have bought these caterpillars for 3 years running. My 5 year old loves it and we have always had success with all the caterpillars. A brilliant project to do especially over half term.

    Tried this for the first time last year and it was brilliant. My daughter loved watching the caterpillars grow and change. Caterpillars arrived well packaged and all grew into butterflies.
