Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very appropriate for my preschool inclusive class to observe The milkweed bugs have been a very hands-on way for little ones to experience the changes, and features of insects. The insects are easily observed, and presented in a "non-scary" way for young children.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had High Hopes Was very excited about the product, but either I didn't set it up right or it just didn't work. The sunflower seeds grew moldy within a few days and trying to get to them to change them out was extremely difficult with live insects crawling around. Our previous set-up from our old FOSS Kit worked better and it was a simple plastic bag. Have been thinking of ways to try and improve if we use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milkweed bug life cycle Very effective at teaching young children the life cycle of an insect. We also purchased fruit flies to compare the milkweed bug life cycle with insects which pupate. The milkwed bugs were easy to take care of and we always had many to observe!
