The Little Live Pets Butterfly Jungle Fashion has a brightly coloured body and wings that immediately appealed to 7yr old Miss M, and she couldn’t wait to get the butterfly out to play.

The butterfly comes with a base, a suction window holder and requires 2 AA batteries for the base.  The base is a solid sturdy piece that the butterfly happily sits on and “feeds”.  Once the butterfly has fed, you can place it in your hands and watch it flutter.  The more you feed and play with your butterfly, the longer and smoother the sequence of flutters will be on your hand.

Both my children have become really attached to this butterfly which I wasn’t expecting but after school each day, they make sure they let the butterfly feed then have a flutter in their hands.  It has become like a little pet for them that they take turns in interacting with.  I think the bright, attractive design helps as my daughter tried one last year but wasn’t so keen.

I think this is a great little interactive toy that encourages children to look after something.  I’ve ensured they are gentle with it so as not to crush it’s wings and taught them how to handle it with care.

The Little Live Pets Butterfly Jungle Fashion has been a hit with us and Miss M likes to put the butterfly in the sucker holder on her bedroom window at night.  I think if your child enjoys this then they are pretty good value for money.

Overall a cute little interactive toy that’s well made and is fun for children!

Little Live Pets Butterfly – Review

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.

little live pets 1Angelic 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.

little live pets 2You 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.
