Better fly, Butterfly! (2) Forever Living in a Jar

Some people have a pet dog, others have a pet fish, but what about a pet butterfly? Yes, you can have one living in a jar that can be your faithful companion forever. 

I chanced upon this new product while window shopping at Vivo City Mall here in Singapore. As I tapped the jar, the butterfly fluttered. I thought this would be a great thing to add to this week’s feature on butterflies. So here you go – electronic butterflies!

As soon as I got home, I searched  “butterflies in a jar” and found more information about this amusing new product. Here you go – read on if you want to learn more…
Butterfly in a Jar- three kinds to choose from

Butterfly in a jar – you can’t fly so far
When we were kids, we liked putting butterflies in jars so we could keep them forever and ever. But they always died. It was sad – extra sad because butterflies (in our opinion) are like rainbows and unicorns: unadulterated creations of magic and beauty. That’s why we got so excited when we saw this Electronic Butterfly in a Jar. 

Each Electronic Butterfly in a Jar is a jar with a wire in it. The wire has a fake butterfly on the end. Somehow, when you tap the top or make a loud sound, the electronics in the cap make the wire wiggle. This creates the very realistic illusion of the butterfly fluttering around your jar. It even just stays on the glass and flexes its wings sometimes. There is absolutely no way you can look at an Electronic Butterfly in a Jar and not smile. It is like having a piece of magical nature on your desk that defies death. Pick your favorite butterfly variety (or collect them all) and get ready to feel good when you marvel at your Electronic Butterfly in a Jar.”

Note: Cats are insanely attracted to this toy. To ensure the safety of your four-legged friends, please ensure this glass jar is in a location where they can’t knock it around and break it.
Butterfly Quote of the Day:
Quote Source

Is it possible to become friends 
with a butterfly?
It is if you first become a part of nature. 
You suppress your presence as a human being, 
stay very still, and convince yourself 
that you are a tree or grass or a flower. 
It takes time, but once the butterfly 
lets its guard down, 
you can become friends quite naturally.”
