- Friday, July 11, 2008 Insect Collection Kit, Advanced Reviewed By: Gail Battles The kit is great. My five year old wants to be an Entymologist and absolutely loves the kit. I can't get the Butterfly net out of his hands.
- Thursday, May 01, 2008 Excellent product Reviewed By: Bryan Penfound Everything that the beginner insect collector needs! Fantastic product. The guides are good for amateurs, but the more experienced insect collector will want a field guide. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase. :)

We are very beginner insect collectors. All of the pieces in this kit were great, but we could have used more information on how to properly pin insects - specifically butterflies. We had to research elsewhere for the info.
