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!

My kids enjoy it very much -- far more play than most of their other games. I adjusted our copy by trimming the nose a bit shorter, which gave it more boost.

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.

This is very fun with younger kids with butterflies flying everywhere! If there is a lot of disparity in age can be frustrating for the younger ones as older ones get the butterflies before they get down to lower levels. Have to institute fairness rules sometimes.

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.
