"The more you understand your world, the more interesting it becomes."

Caterpillar kit sales are now closed! Thank you for the amazing season :) Preorders for 2023 will start on September 1, 2022.  

Due to the crazy fuel prices that are affecting Canada right now, we have seen a sudden increase in shipping fees: this will affect all orders placed after April 27, 2022, as well as some existing orders in super remote or far away locations like the territories or the east coast (we'll contact you if that's the case). Very sorry about this. 

In-school field trips and outreach remain cancelled until further notice due to the ongoing situation with COVID and it's variants. Lifting of public restrictions in Alberta does NOT affect us. We are so charmed and it is sweet that you all miss us: we miss you too! However, we are making no exceptions this spring and emailing us personally will not affect that. Thank you for understanding!
