Wind these beautiful native Australian butterflies up and watch them flutter through the air.
These brightly-colored wind ups come in a variety of colours and patterns, inspired by real Australian species. Great for learning about how wind up toys work and exploring potential (stored) energy in elastic bands.
Made of lightweight paper, the delicate butterflies can be tucked into a card, book or magazine. When the page is opened, watch the butterfly spring out and fly up, up and away! Sure to attract attention!
A very hands on way to learn about potential energy via play.

Wind Up Australian Butterflies. Measures approximately 7cm long. Extra rubber bands contained in the pack so you can use it again-and-again. Comes in assorted colours. A random design and colour will be selected for your order.
How does it work
Like most wind ups, these butterflies work by storing muscle energy in an elastic band. As you wind the thorax of the insect, the tighter the elastic band becomes (it has stored or potential energy). When you let go of the butterfly, it quickly unwinds, releasing the stored energy in the form of kinetic (moving energy), and off your butterfly goes!
- Kinetic (movement) and potential (stored) energy.
- Science of toys, materials and design.
- Repeatable mechanical deformation.
