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

We love this butterfly. So cool that it turns inside out to transform from a butterfly to a caterpillar. The cocoon is a bonus. It's a little hard for little fingers to use the buttons, but it's a good thing to practice on. The selling point for me was the learning items that came with it. Packaging looks like a crate which added that extra to the whole thing.
Purchased this for our 1.5 year old granddaughter. We had a book about butterflies that we used along with it, so it was nice to show her a bigger version of it. She likes it when we help her turn it from the caterpillar to the butterfly and back again, then put it into the chrysalis.
This is so fun! My son has taken it with him everywhere! I love how it has pictures and talks about what happens and how it changes from caterpillar to butterfly
