To the developer!

I’m 27 and love this game. It’s so silly but addicting. I play with my 2 year old twins. My only hang up is once he turns into a butterfly can you make it to where the butterfly stays in the game and flys around the trees? I want to collect butterflies at this point.

My daughter loves it

She loves it, but now it changed to a winter theme and she’s quite unhappy about it. We live in the tropics so snow its not part of our landscape and she says caterpillar is cold. Is there a way to change this or go through the seasons maybe?

This is very fun, but when they fly away, I usually miss them. Maybe I can take care of more caterpillars and my butterflies?
