Nature’s School Opens for All

These days children are increasingly becoming less connected with the world around them. At a time when mobile screens and virtual world are taking over their free time, something simple yet exciting such as growing their own frogs from tadpoles brings them closer to nature. The tadpoles will take about 12-16 weeks to undergo metamorphosis as they grow into frogs. Their legs will sprout, mouths will grow wider, and tails will shrink to disappear. Kids will get to see this amazing transformation take place in front of them.

This kit is a fun choice for science projects as well. Understanding the topic of life cycle becomes easier for kids with such activity-based learning. Actively participating in taking care of the tadpoles and helping them grow into frogs teaches them about responsibility. Instead of a boring lesson filled with facts, it becomes an adventure with hands-on action.

Complete Kit That Makes All Tasks Easier

Raising tadpoles becomes easy with the help of the included accessories and instructions. The habitat is secure and will provide a cozy environment that’ll encourage your tadpole’s growth. Water treatment solution and water change cup will help you keep the habitat clean and remove unwanted chemicals from the habitat. The habitat is completely reusable as well, should you want to grow frogs again in the future.

Floating plastic plant will provide a nice roosting spot for your frogs. The frogs might also nibble at the algae that sometimes grows on the plant. The coloring page will help children understand the difference between the stages of frog life cycle. Instructions are simple enough and anyone can start raising frogs with the help of this kit without any previous experience.

Reap the Reward of Your Efforts

Growing animals brings a sense of accomplishment to children. They will be excited to show and tell others about their pet frogs, the fascinating frog life cycle, and how they reared them on their own from tadpoles. Leopard frogs make for excellent starter pets for children as well. They can continue to take care of their pet frogs after the growing period is over. Your leopard frogs can live up to 5 years if you continue to carefully tend to their needs.

After some time, move the adult frogs to a 5-gallon or 10-gallon terrarium. You can grow more leopard frog tadpoles or tadpoles of a different kind using the habitat that comes with your kit later.

    My kids fell in love with our little Tad the minute we unwrapped him. He was packaged up so well that he made his trip safe and sound. The box arrived quickly after placing the order. Thank goodness, because we were all looking forward to getting the cute little guy and begin learning all about metamorphosis as he slowly changes into a leopard frog. I don’t know who’s more excited to watch him grow – me or the kids.

    My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire process of watching the tadpole turn into a frog. My oldest was so excited to be experiencing science beyond just reading about it in textbooks. I’m so glad we bought this kit and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. The experience was wonderful and one we will remember forever.

    Bout this for my wife for mothers day and she was overjoyed. She really loves frogs and was very surprised with this gift. Has to be the biggest tadpole I have ever seen. It showed up fast and is exactly as described.

    Watching this was very educational! Everything came super fast and in perfect shape. Poor grandma she had to put it all together and raise it until its release.

    It’s fine for a tadpole, and it’s great for kids to see their life cycle, but don’t let an adult frog live in this little tank… This is basically a starter kit. Be prepared to upgrade to some other setup if you want it to thrive.

    When I saw that I could buy on own little tadpoles with tank and all I was very excited! I love frogs and so raising my own from tadpoles sounded awesome! My two little tadpoles, Tadius and Polaris, are four weeks old now and have tiny little legs starting to grow. This kit arrived before it was said to, and everything was as described, the tadpoles were wrapped up nice and safe. I would recommend this kit to anyone who is looking for a tadpole kit, its great for kids too! My two nieces, 4 and 6, love to come check on my tadpoles whenever they are over!

    My daughter has been asking over and over again for her own pet. I decided I would start her off with something small, and educational. Well, these aren’t exactly small, they are almost as big as bull frog tadpoles. But they do not get near the size of a bull frog. I knew my daughter would be super excited to get these big boys/ girls too. This set comes with everything you need to get started, and it is all packed securely . The directions ,for set up ,are super easy to follow, and so are the directions for care, very easy to clean up. The tank size is perfect, they have plenty of room to swim around…Our tadpoles have legs forming now, so we put in less water. Soon we will add some land items, so they can get used to hopping around. If you have a child that loves all animals, loves science, and is ready for their first pet, then get these, they are great.

    My grand is thrilled with the tadpoles. We have bought all of his presents from here.

    It was partially our fault, we ordered them and the temperature was below freezing and they did state they may not survive. I suppose we didn’t read the fine print. We ordered 2 kits with 2 tadpoles. Only 3 tadpoles were shipped and 2 out of the 3 were dead 🙁

  12. 5 out of 5

    I’d give 6 stars if I could. I had issues with my order and the website’s customer service was completely understanding to my issue and resolved it almost immediately. Looking forward to seeing the tadpoles grow into frogs.

    Couldn’t have asked for any better. They came in within 3 days of ordering and both were alive. I’m excited to see them grow.

    It is a great thing to do with your kids

    Amazing customer service! I was sending this as a gift and accidentally submitted the order with my shipping address instead of the intended recipient. I emailed them and they were able to send the package to the correct address. Life saver! And shipping was super quick too!

    One frog didn’t survive the journey, I emailed them, they quickly responded and shipped out replacements immediately!

    The kids absolutely loved getting the gift in the mail. They sent me an ‘unboxing’ video, it came in cute wrapping and their faces were priceless! They already have names for everyone and are excited to watch them grow.

    Will definitely be ordering again! Thank you Nature Gift Store!

    Wow! Such a complete and awesome kit! Our original order was missing 2 tadpoles and the one we got was dead. I reached to the company and they immediately put 3 new ones in the mail and they arrived healthy and happy. We are having a great time watching them grow! Excellent customer service!

    I received my tadpol today!!!! He is so cute!!! I would give 10 stars if I could!!!!

    We received our tadpole within 3 days of ordering. He came very securely packaged and seems to be doing well. We’re very excited to watch him grow and to learn while we keep him as a pet. We are new to homeschooling this year and little things like this just make it so much more wonderful than I could have hoped for. We will definitely be ordering more friends to observe!

    AWESOME!!! I ordered 2 tadpoles to come right away with the package. I was a bit nervous when I found out you’re not supposed to order tadpoles in weather below 40 degrees, and in my area, it was around 20 degrees. Luckily my 2 tadpoles arrived safe and sound, they and the tank were packaged very safe and secure and the tank is plenty big for them! Its been about 4 days and my tadpoles are still doing very well. Just a little warning that their food does dissolve in the water and can make it a little foggy, but after a while when the tadpoles have eaten the food from the water the fogginess will go away. You do have to get them fresh new water 1-2 times a week. And just remember every time you change the water you must add 3 drops of the water solution included in the kit. after a week I would add less water so its easier for the tadpoles to swim to the surface and catch a breath. overall 5 stars there has been no complications with the tadpoles. they are very active and so cute!!

    We got our kit a few months ago and waited for warmer weather to order our tadpoles. The kit is easy to use and comes with everything you need. Ordering our tadpoles was easy, but unfortunately they did not arrive alive. I sent a picture to customer service and they sent new tadpoles without any questions. Our new tadpoles arrived alive and active! My son is very excited about them.
    I think the first tadpoles had been handled too roughly in the mail. I told the customer service rep the box didn’t have “fragile” on it or anything indicating it needs extra care, and the second box of tadpoles they sent had a fragile sticker on it. Not sure if maybe it had been forgotten on the first box, but I think that made the difference.

    I used to raise frogs a long time ago, and decided to start up again. I saw this kit and decided to try it out. The shipment arrived fast, and both the tadpoles (I ordered two,) were alive. They were very cute.

    After a week of following the instructions, both tadpoles died of an unknown cause. Discouraged, I messaged the company and told them what happened. They gave me great information that helped me out. They also shipped out one replacement tadpole.

    The replacement came quickly, and is a lot more active than the other two that died, leading me to suspect the two I ordered first were sick. I know it wasn’t the water, I had a local pet shop test it, and everything was fine.

    All in all, I am very satisfied with this product and this company. Great products, great customer service. I will order from them again in the future.
