@The NYC Toy fair 2008 Insect Lore showed off their live butterfly, ladybug, silkworm and other insect kits for education / home use. You don’t need to catch the Butterflies, they actually ship live caterpillars.

They also have an earthworm nursery, for some reason I really like the idea of kids raising worms… and of course wearing “bug watches” – what time is it? Bug time for the Entomologists.
