    Pros: Fun, inexpensive, educational, entertaining and perfect for everyone!

    Pros: Fun easy pet.
    Cons: Changing the water.

    Summary: As part of my children's home education we purchased Grow a Frog. I thought that seeing a tadpole change into a frog would be a great educational experience. What you get is a plastic box, a pet handbook, growth food and a coupon to send off ... read more

  • Very creative concept, but not worth the trouble!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unique concept, can be educational.
    Cons: Not as easy and straight-forward as the kit suggests.

    Summary: I bought one of these kits for myself about a year ago and was quite disappointed. The gimic is that you send away for a tadpole and watch it develop into a frog. The tadpole comes shipped to you in a bag of water inside a styrofoam container. After ... read more

    Pros: Cute little froglet, educational
    Cons: Hard to time it right to actually get a tadpole.

    Summary: My son was given a Grow A Frog kit when he was 3...much too young for it, really. But I figured we'd go ahead and order the tadpole and if he wanted to see how it changed into a frog, great...if not, oh well, he'd just be a little pet. The kit ... read more
