Butterflies that will flutter around forever

THERE'S nothing more relaxing than sitting in your backyard watching a butterfly flutter past in search of a flower.

Wouldn't it be great if you could stimulate this serene situation whenever you needed to just relax?

Well, the Solar Fluttering Butterfly allows you to do just that!

Resting atop a garden stake, the Solar Fluttering Butterfly flutters and hovers above your favourite flower and occasionally flies all the way around it.

Attached to a small solar panel that converts daylight into energy, this incredible insect will have more flutter the brighter the day is.

But don't worry, when the skies darken you can swap energy sources to the backup AA battery (not included) with the flick of a switch for a constant flying display.

Available in blue, orange, yellow, purple or pink.

You can purchase a Solar fluttering butterfly for $14.95 at coolthings.com.au.
