Elefun is a game that is all about catching butterflies. Just grab one of the four colored butterfly nets and get ready to catch those butterflies.
The game pieces include the nets, butterflies, and an elephant with a long plastic trunk. Remove the trunk and load the butterflies in the chamber. Then place the trunk back on and turn on the elephant. Now the small motorized fan will propel the trunk in the air and shoot the butterflies out the top. Now it is up to the players to catch the falling butterflies. The player who catches the most wins the game.
The butterflies are made from a light-weight material and are made in four colors. The game is powered by four c batteries. You can turn on the game and it will only activate when placed on the floor. This can be helpful when playing Elefun several times in a row.
Elefun is a fast game to play and can be loads of fun to kids. You will need some room to play it, so clear the living room floor. Rounds last for just a few minutes as it doesn't take very long for the butterflies to leave the trunk. This makes for an easy way to play a game when you only have a few minutes to spare or a great addition to game night that gives a kids a fun option.
The game is powered by a small fan. The blades are well protected to keep little fingers from danger. Removing the trunk is simple and loading the butterflies is very straightforward. Once the game is turned on it takes about 20 seconds for the first butterflies to fly out of the trunk. This gives players plenty of time to get their nets into place.
Elefun is a fun game that younger kids should especially enjoy. It's an active game that can be player several times without becoming stale - just make sure you have plenty of batteries on hand. It is likely that the batteries will tire before the kids.
I bought Elefun for my daughter for Christmas.
