Advantages: Easy game to set up and play
Disadvantages: None unless you dont like butterflies
This Elefun is from Hasbro but also known as MB games. My son spotted this at a fair and on asking how much it was I couldn't leave it behind for 20p. New they cost £15-£17.99 and the one we have is in perfect condition.
It's a game for 2 -4 players and very easy to set up and play. My kids have lots of fun with it and it often goes back into the cupboard to come out again a day or two later.
Contents- 4 catching nets
1 Elephant body
1 Elephant removable trunk
Needs 4 x c batteries
It is simple to set the game up, the Elephant body forms the base which contains a fan at the bottom with a grid covering over it so the fan is visible but safe for little hands getting near it. Into this base area you put the butterflies which are made from a type of nylon material. Next you put on the trunk which just slots on the base. The trunk is made from a thick plastic so not easy to rip. Now the fun starts. The players get ready with their catching nets which have a plastic handle and netting similar style to like a fishing net, someone turns the switch on the back of elephant to on and the trunk starts to open up and erect to approx 1 metre in height, takes about 10 seconds to do this (see the picture above) after this has happened about 5 seconds later the butterflies start to flutter out of the top of the trunk and you need to catch them in your net, once they start coming out they do all come out quite fast. Once they are all out turn the elephant off and the winner is the one with the most butterflies in their net.
My son is taller then my daughter so has an advantage being nearer the top where they all flow from but she has learnt to pick up the ones from the floor and put in her net which is quite amusing when she ends up with same amount as her brother has.
Before you restart another game you simply remove the trunk and pop all the butterflies back in again.
On the base of the game there is another button which will stop the fan when lifted off the ground, I'm not sure the reason of having this button but I guess instead of leaving in on ground to refill you can just pick it up to do and saves turning it off each time.
Please take note that you can NOT refill it whilst the fan is still going, it has proven impossible when the kids tried lol.
This is a great game that kids and adults alike can enjoy, yes I've also had a go on it.
Summary: Worth getting for having lots of fun.
