They made the recipient laugh.
Sent them to my grandkids and they loved them
i like how pretty they were and the instructions were easy to follow and the idea of putting them in a card is cute but didn't work out for me. I was disappointed with the short distance they flew and how fast they unwound. I did not end up putting the 10 i bought in my grandkid's treasure bags.
So sorry your Butterflyers are misbehaving and not flying like they should. Most people love them and say theirs fly great. Just read all the 4 & 5 Star reviews on our website from customers like yourself. Please know 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://youtu.be/2sUM1I0C38U) 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!"
It scared the !@#$ outta my Sister!
