The Fantastic, Fairly traded, Fluttering Butterfly

quantity

This delightful curiosity is hand - crafted in Indonesia.  The butterfly's wings can be made to flutter realistically by squeezing a balloon bulb.  Hand - held, or affixed to a table or any suitable surface.  The card base folds outwards to facilitate this.  Whilst this has great appeal for children, it must be noted that this is not a toy, contains detachable small parts, and so is not suitable for unsupervised very small children.  Imported to the UK by Global Citizen Fairtrading.
These are truly amazing - Try some and find out why they are the number one item in our Wholesale range.

Price 1.95 each.  Buy 3 for 5.00    See (above) how the prices drop with quantity!
