Fun for younger kids!

4

I got this for my boys when one was around kindergarten age and the other was a toddler. They loved it! It definitely kept them entertained. It's a plastic elephant with a long nose that attaches. The butterflies go in and the fan blows them out. The kids have plastic butterfly nets to catch the little butterflies. It was fun to watch them play it. I can see a couple problems with this game though. One is that the batteries can get used up quickly. The other is that the butterflies come up fast and it's a little tricky to be able to catch a whole bunch of them. I tried it myself. It is a fun and unique game for kids to play. Kids seem to really like this. If you are looking for a good game to give as a gift this one is a good pick. It is pretty inexpensive for what you get. We had this for a few years and it never broke or stopped working. It's different than other games out there. This is a really fun game for young ages. It will bring giggles and smiles into your home.

Slightly disapointed..

I was so excited for my child to get this for Christmas, considering I had it when I was younger and loved it. Well when we opened it, it's very easy to put together but the game itself is over WAY too quick. It just blows out the butterflies and you're done. Then you have to pick them all up and start over. It has a spot where you can put the butterflies back in their mouth, but it's kind of difficult to do so. I don't think it was worth the money, but I do have to admit, my child loves it, so I guess that's what matters!

Great for kids only.

I remember having a Hasbro Elefun when I was younger. I thought it was the coolest thing and I'm happy they still have them around! However, they are not great for being an adult and watching your child play. All it does is blow the butterflies up into the air and the children have to catch them with nets. Kids love this product and will go crazy for it but all adults will hear is a loud noisy machine and see butterflies all over the house. However, it's great watching the kids enjoy it. I recommend it!

fun but lots of work

Fun for kids and they usually love it, but the butterflies run out after about 10 seconds and you have to turn off the elephant and refill it. Then twist the trunk back on and straiten it out again so the air can flow and the butterflies can come out again. Repeat 1000 times.

A fun product for all ages

I loved this product as a kid and I got this product for my son for Christmas. He loves it and it brings him so much joy and it reminds me of hoe much fun I had as a kid. A very fun product that can last a long time as long as you take care of the pieces. Sometimes it was just fun to turn it on and have the kids play with the air.

Fun doesn't last long with this toy.

After seeing a commercial for the Hasbro Elefun butterfly catching game, my kids thought it looked really fun. When I bought it, they were so excited. Sadly, their excitement was very short-lived. The idea of this game was good but the fact that the butterflies all come out at once is where the idea fell short. In less than a minute the game (and fun) is basically over. If there was somehow a way they could have made the butterflies gradually come out instead of all at once, it would have been a much better game. This game is definitely overpriced and my kids didn't even want to play it again after the first time.

Most fun game lots of laughs

This has to be the most fun I have had with my daughter inside the house in a long time , I ' heard her laugh for that long in awhile, the fact that it uses butterflies that you have to catch is awesome considering my daughter has tried doing this outside with real ones forever and to no avail.  It also comes with plenty of nets so lots of people can play along together.

I loved the idea of this game, so I couldn't wait to get it for my toddler.  As much as I love playing games with her, it's nice when she plays with her little cousins and I get a break once in a while.  Well, with this game .... You never get a break!  By the time the kids are able to focus enough on catching *one* butterfly, there isn't anymore flying out of the trunk.  It takes about 10 seconds for all of the butterflies to fly out.  Then, you have to take the trunk off and put the butterflies back in.  The kids *love* this game and can't get enough of it ... Myself, on the other hand, love the idea of it ~ but don't have it in me to keep up with the maintenence.

An Elephants Worth of Fun for All!

My middle son has beed begging for Elefun ever since he could watch commercials. So, when gift giving time rolled around for him it was a no-brainer. When I went shopping I found it hard to find, having to go to three stores before finding the last one on the shelf.Once home, it was simple to assemble and get running. All three of my children had a blast as the butterflies shot out of the happy elephant into the air with plenty of height and hangtime for them to race around and catch them in their nets. They were even happy to pick up the ones that fell to the ground and put them back in the elephant, with a little help. It also includes a nice saftey feature, if the elephant is not square on the ground, the fan shuts off.Overall, this is a great toy that is reasonably priced and has given my little ones hours of fun. The batteries last a good amount of time and it hasn't come close to breaking. We have lost a few of the butterflies but we've made it a game to cut new ones out of light-weight colored paper. The one thing I would have loved to see was about twice as many butterflies included. Start to finish, they included butterflies last about 20 seconds before it's time to turn it off and start over.

Not worth the money spent.

This toy was a complete waste of money. It does not perform as expected. It uses too many batteries and the children got bored in minutes. It might entertain a 2-4 year old but it has small parts that they could choke on. Not a good investment for anyone.
