Order a couple extra bags of replacement butterflies, dump them all in, lie on the floor and turn on the elephant. Cool.

A perfect kids game. They laugh & squeal while trying to catch fluttering butterflies. My only complaint is how quickly it runs thru batteries. My solution for this was to buy a second unit. Now we have a back up motor , but the key was the elephants trunk. We left one as is for the newer batteries but when the batteries run low we have a second trunk which I shortened so the fan can still have enough umph to push the butterflies out the trunk. Well worth the thrift store purchase!

Can’t really be called a game, even though it has rules and a scoring system. But it is a lot of fun with a handful of 3 and 4 year olds. Kids giggle as the elephant sneezes out butterflies and adults laugh as kids run about with their butterfly nets.

Fun toy, but I don't see the need to make it into a game. Just a nice activity to watch the cute elephant snort butterflies out of his nose as you and your kids try to catch them.

My 2-year-old daughter adores this dexterity game. Small, paper-like butterflies are put inside an elephant's tummy, with a 3'-long plastic trunk attached to the top. When powered up, air is generated at the base of the unit and the trunk extends upward, shooting the butterflies out the top. Players catch as many as they can, with little nets, before they hit the floor. My sister insists that I cheat, but I don't. Great game for kids that never outstays its welcome...for the kids, at least.

Not so fun to kids as one could figure, but more fun to adults like I saw! My sisters and my mother were all over the place to catch those butterflies! Very entertaining was to watch those mothers actually compete with each other! FUN!

Rated according to playing with children. My kids really like this game, though for the adult you have to admit that it's pretty annoying. I wish there was some way to feed the butterflies into the elephant, cause you start with a huge burst of butterflies, most of which inevitably hit the ground, then they trickle out at the end. This also means that it ends way too quickly. But the kids have a good time playing it so I give it a 7.

This is a fun kids game, and very quick. The butterflies all come out fast, and most of them come out early on; a game takes maybe two minutes, tops. Sometimes the last couple get stuck in a loop and never come out, but apart from that the elephant and trunk are well made.

Even for grown-ups, the butterflies' movements -- which can be erratic -- make them a challenge to catch sometimes.

My kids love this game, but I think the elephant should do a better job of scattering the little butterflies. It's very accessible, if your child is big enough to wave a butterfly net, he or she is old enough to play.

My son likes catching the butterflies (he just turned three). This game sets a new all time record for game length (with a fresh set of batteries) it takes around 30 seconds...!

First played November 9th. This take no time to learn and just a minute or two to play. For a kids game it sure it fun to catch the little plastic spinners. My 14 month old and 4 year old loved it. This might be just as fun to play with adults. If nothing else to just be silly. Or maybe not. You would need the right group. I strongly recommend giving this a gameplay for little ones, they will love it.

A sweet and very large battery operated blue elephant that blows air through it's trunk. The trunk and elephant are over 3 ft. tall. Inside the elephant are little butterflies that will shoot up out of the trunk. Your job...collect as many butterflies as you can in your individual butterfly nets. If you manage to catch the golden butterfly you win instantly, otherwise the player with the most caught butterflies wins.

This game is only for 2 players, but it plays so quickly that you can play with multiple pairs of players. A nice party game for kids, fun for adults to play as well as kids.

It's a children's game; my copy works great; I already try it using a power transformer and it's even better. I connect my Elefun with a small cable with an adapter that I use to connect to a power transformer. It just work's great with 4.5V (slower) or with 6V (faster)! :-)

Simple kids game. It blows 'butterflies' up in the air and players try to catch them in nets. My mother-in-law really got into it and was stealing them from her grandkids

Nothin' but hand-eye coordination and body-checks. Seriously, this is a good one for the kids once they have enough coordination to catch the darn things. Until then, it's a disappointment fest for them.
