Behind the design
“I love that the calm, little smile stays the same for both the caterpillar and butterfly! It made the sewing tricky, but we wanted to show that even through big changes, it's still the same bug.”- The KiwiCo Product Design team

Hugs the plush butterfly received: countless
My 4 year old grand daughter loves butterflies and has the flowers planted that attract the caterpillars that eventually turn into Monarchs. She is way more knowledgeable at the young age of 4 than I ever hope to be! This was the perfect gift for her. She of course loves the butterfly!!! The entire kit is perfect for her even though she just turned 4. Not having tv as a babysitter, and parents that read with her daily, has had a definite impact on her development.
We loved this box, especially since we found caterpillars that we placed in a habitat. They have formed their cocoons, so we are waiting for the butterflies. Madisyn really enjoyed the match game!
