The Amazing Monarch "Butterfly in a Jar" - Part of the Butterfly Collection ™
Ever dreamed of keeping a butterfly in a jar forever? Now you can! The Butterfly in a Jar gift is like nothing you have ever seen. Unpackage the glass jar and activate the switch located inside the lid. No all you need to do is just tap the lid and watch the "butterfly" fly around in a surprisingly lifelike way.
Powered by three AAA batteries (supplied with the butterfly), the "My Butterfly" product is a unique feat of micro-electronics. Everytime you tap the glass bottle you can watch "My Butterfly" fly, flap and flutter.
Gently tap the jar once for instant action! One tap willl wake your butterfly up , two taps will make it flutter and three taps will make it flap around the glass bottle. The butterfly is also activated by ambient noise and music. There is no need to turn the "My Butterfly" off; batteries last in standby mode for months ready for a tap to awaken.
The Monarch "My Butterfly" is one part of the "Butterfly Collection" range. The Monarch shown above can also be complemented by other versions which feature a Pink Morpho Butterfly, Blue Morpho Butterfly and finally the Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly.

I recently bought one of the My Butterfly collection butterflies for a friend's children, aged 8 and 11. I presented it to them at a restaurant as if I had caught it in the jar on the way. I put it on the table, tapped it a few times, at which point it started fluttering around the jar. They immediately started playing with it and didn't stop for the duration of the lunch. Before leaving the restaurant they were (politely) discussing who would carry it to the car, deciding in the end to share the duty by exchanging it half way across the parking lot. Later that day I received an email from my friend, telling me that the children had re-arranged their entire playroom with the Butterfly as the center piece. Moreover the 11-year old had sat down with it, tried tapping it in different ways, and figured out what each tap did.
This is a wonderful gift for children, delighting them with its immediate play value. It's realistic movement, colourful display, and capricious behaviour is bound to hold their interest for a long time. I can only hope the inventor creates more 'butterfly-like' versions in addition to the 4 already available.
has been in the house. I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a different toy to entertain your cats.
I'd also recommend it in general. It's absolutely beautiful and looks so lifelike (other than the wire that moves the butterfly of course).
I was maid-of-honor for my best friend and she had a outdoorsy-farm themed wedding. We bought these for all the tables at the wedding and had them be a part of the centerpiece. At the end of the night, the guests were asked to lift their plates and underneath one at each table was a little ticket and that person could take home the butterfly as a gift. They loved it! Ooos and Ahhs everywhere.
This thing looks real! Unless you look real closely, it definitely looks and moves like the real thing. My dad asked me twice if it was real or not. Even my brother asked me if it's real. My dad was completely thrilled with it, and looked like a kid with a new toy on Christmas Day. My brother thought it was a really clever idea, as well.
It runs on AAA batteries inside the lid. If you look closely, the butterfly is connected to a network of very thin wires inside the jar that give it its random fluttering movements. You have to tap the lid, or smack the side, to make it flutter. I don't think it's sound activated 'cuz I've tried clapping by it and it didn't respond.
Anyways, this is a great gift for young or old! It looks very realistic and is fun to watch/play with.
Definitely a keeper for cat parents.
