This product brings disappointment. Not enough power after a few months, even with fresh batteries.

Pros Easy to Use, Safe
Cons Poor Quality, Bad Design, not enough power
Recommended it? No

Elefun, though fun for my 2 and 4 year old girls, is only fun for about a minute at a time.  The fan, even when working well, was not powerful enough to keep the nose up without assistance.  The batteries do not last very long and, after a few months of limited use, no longer blows hard...

Pros Easy to Use
Cons Overpriced, Boring
Recommended it? No

I found this to be just sad. Basiccaly you get a fan & some color pieces for over $20. The kids liked it ok, but really what don't they like. It didn't hold their attention very long though so I would say don;t waste your money. Read full review »

Pros Fun, Entertaining, Interactive
Cons Difficult to Use, Poor Quality, Bad Design
Recommended it? No

Elefun is hard to use becasue the motor/fan doesn't seem to have enough power to get the butterflies out of the trunk without really messing with it. Kids also seem to run into each other a lot trying to catch the butterflies and the nets are cheaply made/easy to rip. Read full review »

Pros Good Value, Safe

We bought this game for day care and the kids loved it and played with it daily for about three months.  Then the motor couldn't blow enough air to get the butterflies out of the elephant trunk.  I cut a bit off the trunk thinking that maybe if the fan didn't have to blow them as far,...

My daughter absolutely loves this game.  She has fun running around trying to catch all the butterflies.
The butterflies are kind of small so they get lost easily.  In order to get the game to work, you have to unscrew the top, stick the butterfilies in, screw the top back on and... Read full review »

I read so many mixed reviews before I finally just decided to go ahead and purchase it. I am so glad I did, because my kids really get a kick out of this. There is not much to the game, and it is over very quickly, but they seriously will play this for an hour. They just really love to watch the... Read full review »

This Hasbro Elefun game is soo much fun!  I have used it for large parties of children as a tournament game, and we use it in our home atleast once a week!  It is one of the few games that kids can play and not just sit.  One of the downfalls is that it does take batteries and we do...

It's not exciting for adults, but my 2 and 4 year olds think this game is fun for at least a few minutes a day.  It teaches hand-eye coordination, which my 2yo doesn't have yet so he just picks up the ones that fall on the floor.  Sometimes this machine isn't powerful enough to blow out...

This game is great for preschoolers, however it's a little tough for them to catch the butterflies.  My daughter has fun running and chasing them, though.  It also has trouble running unless you put it on a hard surface, no carpeted areas. Read full review »

Our kids love to play this game.  It almost seems magical to them when the butterflies fall and they love trying to jump and catch.  The game is not easy to set up (they need lots of help) and i don't think the motor pushes the butterflies up in the air forecfully enough.  These...

Have this for a toddler and it is great fun for him. It would probably be a little more fun if there were two to play together. Does help get him away from television on a rainy day. Read full review »

My daughter fell in love with this toy after seeing the commercials. Santa brought it and we don't like it at all!

My kids have loads of fun when we get this game out, but I do have 2 complaints: 1) the butterflies are very easy to lose, and if you don't have any butterflies, you aren't having any fun; and 2) this doesn't fit back into the box very easily.  Once I get it in, it's no longer a rectangular...

Our son was begging for games of his own and we thought Elefun would be a great one to try. The concept is simple...little fabric butterflies are put into the elephant's mouth, the nose is attached, and a small fan underneath turns on (only when the toy is laying flat on the floor & turned on,...

While my kids seem to enjoy this game, I do not. You put the butterflies in, put the trunk on, straighten the trunck, and turn on. In 30 seconds, you get to do it all over again. Also the butterflies get stuck in the truck and take forever to come out when the last 2 or 3 are still in there. I am... Read full review »
