The butterfly life cycle is amazing. Inflatable Butterfly Life Cycle

This beautiful learning toy teaches this concept of life cycles, focusing on the butterfly. Inflatable Butterfly Life Cycle is made up for four separate plastic inflatables illustrating of each of the stages of metamorphosis:

Female butterflies lay their eggs on plants. The caterpillar (or larva) emerges from the egg a few days later and begins to feast of the plants nearby. When the caterpillar has reached sufficient size is makes a protective shield around itself, called a pupa or chrysalis. (Not a cocoon though, that’s for moths!) The transformation, or metamorphosis, is complete when the adult butterfly emerges from the chrysalis. Ready to start the process again!

science toys It is a great way of visually describing metamorphosis, with colorful, oversized displays that capture the attention of children. The inflatables are colorful, detailed and quite realistic. The largest inflatable is the butterfly, which measures 29 ½ x 25 inches. And no butterflies are harmed in the process!

Each inflatable has a tab which allows hanging. As they are quite large, they make an impressive and beautiful display. So they also become great room decorations that reinforce the concepts over time.

An activity guide teaches further detail and facts about the four life stage and jogs your memory as well!
