Love the idea of having your own pet butterfly, but hate the cruelty involved in capturing it and sticking it in a jar? Well, the Electronic Butterfly in a Jar should relieve your hesitations. These toy butterflies come complete with their own jar home where they seem to magically flutter about.

With the aid of a couple of batteries and an electronic wire mechanism, these beautiful little insects come to life when you tap on the lid of their jar or make a loud noise in close proximity to it. There are four different types of butterfly to choose from: Monarch, Yellow Swallowtail, Blue Morpho and Pink Morpho. With the Electronic Butterfly in a Jar, you can keep your new friend captive and never have to worry about it inevitably dying, unless, of course, its batteries do.
