*** PLEASE NOTE: No butterflies or insects included. *** This light and portable habitat makes it easy to breed and raise insects such as Butterflies, Caterpillars, and Praying Mantises. Many small animals also do well inside these cubes. The mesh sides allow air to flow through while preventing small predator insects from penetrating the fabric. It will even keep tiny feeder insects from escaping, such as wingless fruit flies. One side of the cage is made of a clear vinyl which acts as a viewing window. Handles on the top can be used for carrying or hanging. A large zipper opening gives you ...

Love It !

The first was the smaller cube sized one which is still in good shape after many Black Swallowtail caterpillars and two years outdoors.

I purchased this larger tent so I can have two sizes plus more space for the taller milkweed because I also have Monarchs this year.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this habitat science kit based on price trends and manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this habitat science kit now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. The current price is in its lowest range, best time to buy!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $22.95 $18.95

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from January 18, 2020 to May 21, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this habitat science kit was $22.95, and the lowest price point was $18.95. The current price is lower than it has ever been. This is definitely the best time to purchase!

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 4.22% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $23.61 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

2. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Oxel Company (Oxel) has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

3. This habitat science kit has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This habitat science kit has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this habitat science kit more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. Make sure Oxel is a brand you can trust

Oxel doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other habitat science kit brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for a product with best reviews

image/svg+xml Oxel Other similar brands: Toysmith Insect Lore

I found 2 brands that have similar products like this one: Toysmith and Insect Lore. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Toysmith. If you're looking for a habitat science kit with best reviews, you're looking at that product! Within its category, it has received the highest customer satisfaction score. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Insect Lore I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
