Rated 2 out of 5 by from doesn't get big These bugs didn't grow like the pic. They were good looking bugs though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What You See Is What You Get I purchased these to use in an experiment for a middle school class. Thankfully, I tested beforehand to gauge how long it would take to open. After 24 hours of soaking, the shapes tested had barely opened beyond the size they were. The picture is misleading. There is no significant transformation and I can't imagine this would entertain a child of any age..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Took a long time I bought these for a bug themed week of activities with my son. He was super excited at the colors. Like other comments when we put them in the water they did not grow. No instructions were included so I wasn't sure how long to leave them in the water. I left them over night in a jar of water and by the next afternoon they had grown some, not like the picture shown.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay party bag favor We had a bug themed party and included these in the goody bags. We tried two out before the party and it took awhile for them to get bigger which for little kids lost their interest. I also had to explain to the parents what they were as they did not say anything on the individual bugs as to what they were to do with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waiting The bugs themselves were very cute. I wish there would have been a description or label on the item itself so everyone knew what they were when I put them in a gift basket. Also, it took a verrry long time for them to grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun for my "insect" unit at storytime! Package did not come with directions. Please include them because I forgot how to use them. Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Insects do not grow These insects do not grow. After trying a lot of them, following directions on web site and leaving in water for days and days, I discovered these things DO NOT WORK. There were no instructions included, so I had to go to Oriental Trading's web site to get the instructions. Don't order--you'll be disappointed. I did a live chat with customer service and they were very accommodating and credited my account for the item within one day. Friendly, timely, and wonderful customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Sadly, they didn't change much when added to water and you have to leave them in water overnight. Waking up to a tiny but bigger and slimy isn't all that exciting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, little bugs I've bought these every year and they are so cute and a lot of fun

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I use these every year to help teach measurement to my second graders. We measure them before putting them in water, during their growth and when they are finished growing! They love it!

How many hours do they take to grow and how big do they get?

It appears they're about one inch wide when they start out--how wide do they get and about how many hours does it take to get to it's maximum size? Thanks.
Asked by: coco22
It can take up to 24 hours for them to fully grow.
