The look on my granddaughters face when it flew out of her birthday card was priceless. I also sent one to my 88 year old mother!
We have sent butterfliers to people of all ages and everyone of them have LOVED the surprise. Most have reused them to make others happy. We are using them in an upcoming Sunday School lesson about growing into high flying Christians. I have ordered 3 times already and have no doubt there will be many more. They Are Awesome!!
this product does not work as good as they advertise it to be.
So sorry you're disappointed. Most people love them and theirs fly great. Just read all the 4 & 5 Star reviews on our website or on FB! The ones you see fly in our videos are identical to the ones we ship out to hundreds of people each and every day. The only difference is who is winding it and how it's wound. 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 CLOCKWISE, 30-35 full turns and that you have an entire row of double (almost triple) knots on the rubber band. 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. Remember, "Wind it tight and it will fly just right!"
I was a bit disappointed that they really don't flutter out of the card. They buzz and scare the be-jesus out of the recipient. They may be too big and possibly made out of the wrong material. Perhaps paper would have been better. I bought a ton of them....so unfortunately, more people are going to get the $#% scared out of them.
Cathy, so sorry you're disappointed. If you think they are flying to hard and fast, then try not winding them as tightly. They can be used over and over again so if you do not like the way they are flying, try it again and wind them more or less depending on what the desired effect is. As for the size, they are designed to be the right size to fly well. As for being made from the wrong material, the wings are made of paper so we're not clear why you would suggest making them from paper?
