Thinkgeek Electronic Butterfly in a Jar is Weird

by Shane McGlaun

ThinkGeek has some really cool and really strange products. One of the stranger products that I have seen in the catalog of offerings is this new Electronic Butterfly in a Jar. It’s just what it sounds like. You get a faux butterfly in one of four designs that flitter around with power from a clear cable inside.

It whacks up against the side of the glass jar and sounds like a real butterfly trying to break out. This thing is really strange, but my daughter would totally love it. She is always putting something in a box or plastic bag to keep “forever” but for some reason her new pets never seem to wake up after a night in the bag.

I could get her this butterfly thing and not have to try and remember to let the captured bugs and frogs escape when she isn’t looking. You can get four different butterfly styles including a pink morpho, blue morpho, monarch, or a yellow swallowtail. Only the pink morpho is in stock right now with the others about three weeks out. Each of the jars will cost you $19.99.
