Our latest fascination…
As those of us who read the Moomin books will know, the first butterfly of the summer is incredibly important. With this fascinating kit, the children’s first butterfly this year can be one they raised themselves!
This kit contains a habitat, food, and a coupon. Once the coupon is mailed off, they will receive five caterpillars from the breeder! The caterpillars will live happily in their specially-designed home and grow bigger and stronger day by day. Once they’ve grown enough, they will pupate and eventually emerge as stunning Painted Lady butterflies! You can then take the habitat outside and release them in a beautiful cascade to live their lives in the wild!
If you’ve visited our shop lately, you may have met our beloved stick insects – these butterflies are from the same company, and are every bit as fascinating. Pop by to visit our growing minibeast collection!
