Great reviews, though be warned unlike the butterfly kit you can't release the stick insects, you have to keep them, but they are easy to keep
Product Description
Watch stick insects grow from tiny eggs in their own pop up house. As the stick insects grow see how they moult their skins and then hide amongst the twigs. The Indian stick insects eat hawthorn, oak and brambles. Use your certificate for 7-10 eggs which are redeemable online or by post. Also included with your stick insect kit is a fun fact guide telling you all about these weird and wonderful insects.

Great deal,

Grow your own bugs!
I have some of these and they are a nightmare to get rid of humanely, They lay dozens of eggs at a time and they are single sex creatures. I try to clean all the eggs up but some always find a hiding place then more insects sprout up, I keep them in a case in the living room but I have actually found odd ones wandering around the bathroom and bedroom.
I had some of these when I was a kid. I agree with the above post, they multiply very quickly.

I found them difficult to get food for, they mostly eat things I had to go out and find growing rather than being able to find to buy.

I also had trouble keeping the temperature right for them, they can't be kept too cold. In the end mine died of heat, because my parents got sick of them multiplying and escaping and put them in the greenhouse one day when I was at school, not realising what would happen.

You'll probably end up needing just as much equipment as if you were keeping tropical fish if you look after then properly. I would imagine most people getting these for their children end up wishing they had bought a hamster, or even a dog or a cat instead.

One of the reviews also says that you to pay extra to get the eggs?

Remind me to not ever visit your house lol.
How long do they live for then?.

Lifespan is around 12 to 18 months but in that time they can produce hundreds of eggs that don't need fertilizing (single sex creatures)
