Hasbro Elefun Game £10.99 @ Amazon
In fact, we (me, the youngest and the two teenagers) were all playing Elefun just the other day - it always causes a great deal of hilarity and brings out the competitive streak in all of us.
If you've not heard of Elefun before here's how it works...
You have an elephant head that has a motorised fan inside; Elefun's head has a long four foot plastic trunk that inflates to point upwards when you turn the fan on.
Before you do that you must put all the paper butterflies inside the head and when the trunk is fully upright they all FLY out the top, each player must catch as many of them in their net as they can and the person who catches the most butterflies is the winner.
Elefun needs 4 x C batteries that aren't included and he comes with four nets and thirty butterflies.
We're not the only ones who think he's great fun, reviewers on Amazon say the same...
"This is a great game.My grand daughter and the adults love this game. A must have for great fun...."
"We all love this game. It is one that the whole family can enjoy together (even our 11 year old son who most certainly would not admit to it in public!).
We actually have four extra nets and the butterflies from the first time we had this game (it only broke as it had been damaged during a house move) and I'm glad I kept hold of them. It means we can play with 8 people which is great for when we have a houseful of friends and family.
You can count the butterflies in your childs net and seperate them into colours too, so if you want to use it as an educational tool you can. We just like it for the jumping around!"
This isn't an Amazon deal of the week so Elefun's price isn't fixed and could go up like the butterflies that fly out of his trunk!
Happy butterfly catching!
