Whimsical Wings Monarch Butterfly Kit

(10 customer reviews)


The Whimsical Wings Butterfly Kits are in season April – September.
Delivery times will be 1-2 weeks after you place your order, depending on the weather. Per USDA regulations, we only ship to areas East of the Continental Divide.

Each kit contains:

  • One milkweed plant
  • One to two monarch butterfly eggs or caterpillars
  • Magnifying glass so you can observe up close
  • Spray bottle for misting chrysalis
  • A netted cube to keep your milkweed and butterflies safely contained
  • Instructions for caring for your butterflies and milkweed throughout the 30 days
  • Lifecycle Poster
  • Plant Tray

Whimsical Wings ships two caterpillars or eggs per plant. Two butterflies is the maximum number that one plant can sustain to adulthood. While we wish both caterpillars make it through their journey for you to release them, we realize Mother Nature is in charge. Our guarantee is that you see the process from start to finish successfully. If at least one of your caterpillars makes it to a butterfly, that is success.

    Fantastic monarch butterfly kit! Comes quickly and with everything you need. The company obviously cares very much about the butterflies. Will buy again.

    Nice kit. I think the biggest selling point to me was the full sized live milkweed that came with it, so you can enjoy butterflies returning year after year.

    The kit is wonderful. I have given them as gifts and everyone loves them. A great experience for an endangered species. Will buy again

    I can’t say enough about this!! It was an incredible experience and they provided everything you need from start to end. Plus whenever I had questions about something they were quick to respond! I already can’t wait to do it again next season!

    This has been our 3rd successful year with these kits and they are a magical experience each time. This year we got lucky enough to catch the caterpillar turning into the chrysalis! Such a beautiful process to watch from beginning to end. Now that Monarchs are endangered it was even more special and important! Thank you so much for sharing these with us.

    What a wonderful Mother’s Day gift I received this year! Everything arrived in a very professional-looking box and caterpillars ready to go on a very healthy plant. But more importantly, I want to mention the top-notch customer service I got. It’s easy to be in business when things go right, but the real proof of business’s culture is how it operates when things go wrong. My caterpillars did not survive the chrysalis stage, but when I reached out to Donna about getting replacements, she answered my email within 10 minutes and I had a new shipment in my mailbox inside a week. My little friends are now happily munching, and I have a better feeling about them getting through the full cycle. Would definitely recommend.

    This just got delivered today and I can’t say enough about the premium quality and care for everything. It comes with a quality mister bottle, magnifying glass, and you can see how much care in the packaging. We received a beautiful healthy plant and two cute caterpillars and my kids and I are just so excited to watch them grow. Thank you making such lovely butterfly growing kits.

  8. Irene Toner

    We have received two kits that were carefully packaged and arrived in a very timely manner. Everything we needed to see the caterpillars grow. The butterflies were magnificent. Amazing colors and quite big. We will, definitely, order again, because our grandson’s experience and happiness was immeasurable. Thank you for a wonderful kit.

    Best butterfly kit I have ever used. The kit was so well packaged. All the accessories the kit came with made the experience that much better. The caterpillars were very healthy and turned into gorgeous butterflies.

    Highly, highly recommend.

    It was a wonderful experience! The kit came with everything you need. Donna responded to any questions I had very quickly. It was amazing to watch the transition from caterpillar to butterfly! Such an amazing learning experience. Can’t wait to do it again!
