Have yous seen it? I think I want to order it for ds for Easter, but I think the kit on TV comes with more things than the kits on Insectlore.com. . so. . . does anyone remember what comes with the kit on TV, or have the number or anything??? I've been googling it, but I can't find the tv offer. I guess I'll just keep the Disney Channel on all night on mute and hope it see it! Or was it on Nick?

The kits I can find come with the butterflies and the pop up habitat. I think the one on tv came with a video and maybe a poster??

I've been searching and searching for it too (unsuccessfully, which is how I found your post) but today I finally saw the commercial again (and wrote it down! lol).

Thanks! I just ended up ordering from instectlore.com anyway because it seemed a little cheaper, and they had more options. If anyone else orders from them. . .my order came in 2 days! It's for Easter! What do I do with this jar of caterpillars???

I went to this site to order two butterfly kits. I put in my order a few weeks ago, but never received any further confirmation. I have written to customer service 4 times in the past week asking for help in finding my order. I never received one reply.

I ended up going to another site and ordering where the cost was less as well as shipping cost was less. It was the Butterfly and Nature Gift Shop. Several of the other sites to order butterfly kits from had lower prices than the one advertised on the tv. It is a good idea to check around.

Oh, I see you got yours from another site, too! Hope this helps someone else looking.

If it's the same kit I got last year you're supposed to leave the caterpillars alone in their sealed jar until after they've built their cocoons. That brown goop at the bottom is their food.

What a timely thread. I am working on a butterfly lesson for my DS and other kids. I was wanting to order some caterpillars.
I seen the butter fly commercial, and went hmmmm! I am still looking for something that's affordable. $40 is just simply too much for my project.

Oh, I know what I am literally supposed to do with it (nothing!), but my issue is that I ordered for Easter and it arrived 10 days before Easter. They are hiding on my top shelf and I'm afraid they are going to start changing before he ever sees them!

Did you check out insectlore.com? They have some that are 16 dollars. The one I ordered was $24.

I checked out Insectlore.com but I don't want a habitat. I have an unused aquarium that I can keep them in. Does anyone know where I can buy JUST caterpillars? Without paying $15 for 3 to 5 caterpillars?
