  • We just got our ant farm and tube of ants. They are digging away already. My 9 year old got a uncle Milton gel ant farm for Christmas. We ordered the $5 “free” ants from them direct. The few that were not dead have barely done anything. In two weeks most are dead. She was very disappointed. We decided to go old school and get ants from you. Very satisfied with the whole process. We will definitely be ordering more from you! -C. Roberts
  • We received the AntWorks farm today with ants and I was very happy to see that all the ants were alive and well. They’ve only been in there a few hours now, but they are already starting to check out the holes we poked in the gel. My daughter loves it! L. Abshear
  • I placed an order with you through Amazon, and wanted to say thank you! My daughters are so fascinated with the live caterpillars. I can only imagine the fun of watching them turn into butterflies. We placed an order through a competitor the same time last year (before the temps got too high). Unfortunately, it took them over 6 weeks to ship the caterpillars to us and they arrived dead since the temps were in the 90s and 100s by then. We were very disappointed. I am so thankful that you ship so much faster and the caterpillars arrived in time for us to enjoy them this summer. I will only order from you in the future. Thank you! J. Parker
  • Trevor loves the Grow-a-frog kit and the Venus Fly Trap Kit! Your products are awesome! Thank you so much! A. Dopps
  • I ordered your butterfly kit for my granddaughter for her birthday. It arrived in two days and to everyone’s amazement all twelve of the butterflies hatched. She had such fun and what a terrific learning experience. Thank you, Carolyn H.
  • Our new African Dwarf frogs just arrived from over 3,000 miles away and they love their new home. I thought they’d be exhausted after that long of a journey, but your packaging was excellent. They are very active and healthy. We look forward to future purchases. Mr. and Dr. Marks
  • I wanted to tell you that all 30 painted lady butterflies were born ūüôā Thank you! The kids loved the whole process! B. Hughes
  • My order arrived in perfect order. The stamps on the box really helped alot. I want to thank you very much for sending them. It was very nice of you and greatly appreciated. I brought them to the school that day and they were very, very, happy. Thanks for making everyone’s day! They will release the butterflies for the kindergarten graduation. They are also going to try and make this a yearly event. Again I thank you so very very much. It was great doing business with you and I will tell everyone what a great company you are. L. Buonagura
  • Outstanding!! My order was received yesterday! The customer service you offer is beyond wonderful. I will surely return..doing business with the Nature gift Store is amazing. We have caterpillars in their chrysalis at the moment and my daughter is already asking for more..I know where I’ll be going for them. Thank you again for your wonderful support & customer satisfaction. B. Taylor
  • I had ordered from you a few weeks ago for our second grade class (in conjunction with a unit on south America) and they just released the butterflies! The larvae were healthy and the children had an amazing educational experience. Our kindergarten class just began a unit about Eric carle. Usually the focus of the class is about the art depicted in The Very Hungry Caterpillar but the children were fascinated by the life cycle of the butterfly so that is why our ordering is so last minute. I appreciate you sending them out as soon as possible. Thanks again, Janessa
  • We just wanted to thank you for your great customer service. We received the caterpillars today. My 4 year old is loving her new friends. It’s not often these days to find a company that backs up their products like you have. We will be ordering more items from you. I think our next project might be the frog kit. I am only concerned about the weather getting too hot. We may have to wait until later this fall. Again thanks from my daughter. Kevin and Julianna
  • Thank you so much for providing good, quality hermit crabs. I purchased the original 2 from you with a starter kit back in December for a Christmas gift for my son. One of the crabs only made it a few months. We bought 2-3 replacement crabs from a chain pet store and they were small, not active and didn’t make it longer than about 2 months. I recently purchased the next crab from you and as soon as I got him, he was very active and seemed to get along well with the original crab I purchased from you. They are large, have nice shells and seem to be very healthy. Thank you again, you have a great business. A. Shockley
  • THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I am so glad they told me about you. Thank you So much. You really helped make mymom’s day. I cannot thank you enough. ūüôā M. Paulson
  • I recently ordered the 2 Live Tadpole Kit. They arrived today and they are fabulous. The tadpoles were not only delivered safely, securely packaged and alive, but they are huge, thriving and wonderful. I cannot wait to share them with my first grade class tomorrow! They will be part of a thematic unit on amphibians. We will be making observations and keeping a daily record book together as we watch them develop into frogs. Thank you for your wonderful service and I will recommend your company to anyone.Carrie Carr, 1st Grade Teacher
