BRIMSTONE butterfly – Life Cycle Playset

BRIMSTONE butterfly

 Life Cycle Playset

the story

Of tiny creatures and big dreams

The caterpillar wakes up in a world that she finds round. And dark. And also very narrow. Quite boring, come to think of it. For a moment, she just sits there, curled up, having a look at the world all around her. But after a while, it starts to get uncomfortable, and she feels the urge to stretch a little.

The egg bursts open. Well, would you look at that! The world isn’t round after all – it’s a disc! A green disc, to be precise, hosting more eggs, just like the caterpillar’s, with more larvae emerging from these eggs.
