I own two of these, the yellow swallowtail and the monarch pictured here and I have to say, they are really, really cool. They also make a blue morpho and a pink morpho. The look and movement is very realistic. I gave away 10 as Christmas gifts and they were a big hit. Lowe's sells them for $15 if you can find them locally, but not all Lowe's carry them and many are sold out. My cats are crazy about them too.

meh, the real thing is free, even if they only last a day in the jar.

If the humane aspect doesn't appeal to you, perhaps the laziness factor will. Catching a butterfly every day requires, energy, effort and luck (not to mention cruelty and neglect). You don't need any of those for these butterflies.

yes, but when the batteries die out and are disposed of, they will poison the environment, killing gazillions of butterflies.

@shellyfish: rechargables? we don't have electricity here, we have to use fireflies in jars at night, and a handcrank to power this internet connections.
