    I’m an animal lover, and I’d definitely be entertained. I’ve never seen anything like it! I think they’re cool.

    I think they are definitely unique. But I am one of those people who find bugs of all types (even butterflies) to be creepy. I just think the constant erratic movements would be creepy, to watch that out of the corner of your eye all through dinner. It would almost be neater if it didn’t move at all. Sorry !!

    I think they are awesome! I think if you’re having kids at the reception, they’re going to have a lot of fun with them!

    Okay, these are a LOT cooler than I was originally imagining. I would probably be entertained, but I do know some people have an inherent fear or distaste for any insects, like @kerensa mentioned. I would also probably have a strong urge to open the jar and start crying, “Be freeee, butterfly, be freeee!” But that’s just me. ๐Ÿ˜€

    You’d definitely get people talking with them!

    I think these are extremely cool! But, since you’re immediate reacatoin was, oh my gosh! I think you should find some way to put the word out that these are not real butterflies.

    I hope you get to use them though, because that is just TOO COOL!

    I’ve seen these in person, and they are mesmerizing. I really thought about buying one. But I’ll be honest that they are so realistic that I did feel sorry for the poor little thing. Of course, then I reminded myself that it wasn’t real!!!!

    I’ll be honest and say that they creep me out!  I don’t think it’s because they’re robotic though, but more because I associate butterflies with bugs and they give me the creepy crawlies a bit.
