Elefun is a children's game from Hasbro. The object of the game is to use your net to catch as many butterflies as possible as they fly from a plastic elephant's metre (3.28 in)-long trunk, a plastic chute through which the paper butterflies travel, propelled up by a motor in the elephant, called Elefun for short. It was released in 1993. It was made again in 2003 and made once again in 2009, as well as a spin-off as the "Elefun Busy Ball Popper" in 2011. A golden butterfly was added to the game in 2012. Also it released a female version called Belefun.

The game is currently marketed under the "Elefun and Friends" banner, with Hungry Hungry Hippos and Gator Golf.

Elefun was designed by Omni Rothschild & Boaz Coster in 1993. It is suggested to be played between 2 and 4 players and takes approximately 10 minutes to play.[1]


Elefun is a children's game suggested to be played by preschoolers ages 3–6. The motorized elephant blows nylon butterflies into the air and all the players try and catch them in their nets. Players can also grab the butterflies off the ground to collect them in their net. The player who collects the most butterflies once the elephant is done blowing them earns a butterfly token on their net. Also, the player who catches the special blue butterfly wins a token. The first player to collect three butterfly token wins the game.[1]


Musical Freddy and His Flying Fish is the same game as Elefun, but instead of an elephant that blows butterflies, there is a large fish that blows out smaller fish.[1]
