Just in case you’re cruising for gifts today… check out this butterfly that’ll never die

Posted by

I don’t know about you guys, but I plan to stay inside all day today. Luckily for me, ThinkGeek’s Black Friday Sale is handing out deals on all kinds of cool shit, including the ever-amazing Electronic Butterfly in a Jar for $9.99:


I’m kind of in love. My friend has one, and she says her five and two-year-olds are crazy for it. It never dies (unless you count when the batteries give out.. but that’s what rechargeable batteries are for!), and it’s also easy entertainment for your cat (except that it IS in a glass jar… so be careful where you put it). PLUS there are options — you can choose between a pink Morpho, blue Morpho, Monarch, and yellow Swallowtail.

And you know what else? IT’S JUST CUTE.

  1. Sadly it does die: my daughter broke hers within a week. It was totally awesome though! I love Think Geek. I would buy everything they had if I could.

  2. I have one at my desk at work! The first week it flapped constantly, but now it only responds to a tap (which is a good thing!) People really do think it’s real if you go the yellow one, so opt for pink or blue so people don’t think you are a butterfly killer without figuring out that they aren’t real.

    I love my butterfly in a jar!

  3. I feel really uncomfortable with this; it seems realistic enough that I would feel I was owning something that makes light of and in some way makes acceptable, a horrible thing.

  4. I totally bought one of these. No idea what I’m going to do with it yet, but it was waaay too cool to pass up.
