I sent these to my grandkids who absolutely love them. I put them in a card and when they open the card the butterflies flew out. They had such a great time with them. Thank you so much what an awesome idea.
Well... they didn't work like the ad. I sent 3 to my grand kids in separate cards. One did an anemic flight, one died on the floor and the last one seemed to have died then did a short sputter and then died. I was disappointed, the kiddos thought it was funny.
We read your comments about your Butterflyers not flying so well. So sorry you're disappointed. The ones you see fly in our videos are identical to the ones we ship out to hundreds of people each and every day. Most people love them and theirs fly great. Just read all the 4 & 5 Star reviews on our website or on FB! In fact, the review submitted just before yours said, "When I got them, I wound them up about 20 times but they did not fly as high as the video showed. I reached out to the company in an email and received a prompt response to my question as to why mine weren't flying as high. I just wasn't winding them tight enough. I wound them the proper amount of times and was thrilled when I opened the card and they flew just like the video showed. Thank you Butterflyers. These are so much fun!!!!" May we ask, did you watch this video regarding the proper way to wind your Butterflyer to get maximum flying effect (https://bit.ly/2qgEbOT) and this one on how best to place them in a greeting card (https://bit.ly/2DSGezJ)? The links to both of these videos were sent to you in the shipping and order confirmation emails you received. 99% of the time when people say their Butterflyer isn't flying so well, it's because they are not winding it correctly. In short, you want to be 100% for sure you are winding 30-35 full turns and that you have an entire row of double (almost triple) knots on the rubber band. Remember, the rubber band is the engine that propels these things. So, if you do not wind it enough, they will not fly very well because it won't get enough lift.
Haven’t sent them yet. Saving for my friends birthdays. But, they look they will work when I wind them up... and SURPRISE!
I sent out different cards to my friends with these butterflyers and I really enjoyed their response because of the shock and surprise when the butterflies flew out. I think it's hilarious and I love them. I will be purchasing them again. thank you for coming up with such a great idea to make a card extra special.
