Little Live Pets is a new range of butterflies and birds from Character Toys, that come alive in your hand to become your pet friend. The more you feed and play with them, the more they interact. We received Angelic Wings, one of the six butterflies in the range to collect.
Angelic Wings is a pretty gold and silver butterfly with a pink sparkly flower base. The base requires 2AA batteries and this is used to feed (charge) the butterfly. The butterfly is aimed at children aged 5+ due to being slightly delicate. It has thin wings that flutter at different speeds and length of time depending on how much it has been fed and played with. It also comes with a press on window holder so that you can display your butterfly on your window if you wish.
You can let the butterfly just rest in your hand and it will flutter away showing you how happy it is, the happier it is the smoother and longer it will flutter for. If it is not very happy then it only flutters for a short time with fast rapid movements.
Miss M was intrigued by the butterfly and liked the idea that the more she played with it, the happier it became but was also a little disappointed that all it did was flutter it’s wings. I think she had seen the bird, also from the Little Live Pets range which sings to you and you can record a tune with and had expected something similar with the butterfly.
For £12.99 you get what you pay for although I would have been happier to pay a little more to get some additional features with this. The children do let the butterfly flutter in their hands each day for a few minutes but there’s not enough to keep them interested long term. For a child that loves butterflies then they may love this and with six different coloured butterflies in the collection, there is something to suit all tastes.
