My girls love their bug nets. They desperately try to capture anything that flutters by, but they never do. Never. Its for the best though, as those critters don’t really want anything to do with them, but you can’t help but feel sorry for such determined bug hunters.
This is where My Butterfly in a Jar comes in. These awesome things are wee little ROBOT butterflies inside a canning jar! You tap the lid and they magically flutter around like a real butterfly! I handed this thing to my girls about an hour ago and they WILL NOT stop staring at it. My oldest is sure its 100% real (but she mentioned, “Maybe his legs just fell off, Mom”) and my littlest is freaked out by it, which is a testament to its realism.
Go check it out! It comes in four styles: Monarch, Blue or Pink Morpho and Yellow Swallowtail (about $15 on Amazon)
Bottom line? These things are NEAT!
Important note: These things are in GLASS JARS so they are not toys. Be careful!
