    Totally Awesome!!! Ok I bought this for my 12 year old son who loves bugs! This thing is so cool! It will actually open and close it’s wings and then flutter around the jar like a true captured butterfly! It does have an automatic shut off after about three minutes unless you tap the jar lid again. The great thing about this butterfly is it DOESN”T DIE!!! In cast anyone is wondering it runs on three AAA batteries.

    I Would Have Given it 5 Stars But… I bought two of the Blue Morpho “Butterfly in a Jar” (by Gemmy Industries). One worked but the other didn’t. These “critters” LOOK, SOUND (I know butterflies don’t make sounds, I mean the sound of it fluttering in the jar), and BEHAVE so realistically people cannot tell the difference until they look right into the jar and see the thin wire. Fyi, the jar is made out of glass.With the other one, you would never have known it was defective until you follow the instructions (as I did with the other one) to take it out of the packaging’s demonstration mode – unscrewing the jar’s lid, removing the DEMO cable and positioning the switch from “TRY ME” to “ON”. Once this is done, the butterfly should “come alive” anytime by tapping on the jar – as opposed to DEMO mode (with the cable attached) where it would only work for about a minute and stops until the DEMO button is pressed again. The second one sadly would not function in the “ON” position. Replacing the batteries (3 x AAA) did not make a difference. I will be sending the second one back for a replacement.The butterflies I give 5 stars, but I would give Gemmy’s quality control a much lower rating.
