My Pet FireFly Review and #Giveaway

Every night the yard lights up with Firefly’s. The kids get their bug catching containers, toss grass in and catch firefly’s or lightning bugs as I remember them called when I was a kid. My 5 yr old doesn’t mind catching the little light up  bugs. My 3 yr old will chase them but will not touch them. He loves to look at them while they are in the container but is too scared to touch them.  My 10 yr old daughter is the same way. She says they are pretty to watch but she doesn’t want to touch them either. That’s why she loves the new My Pet Firefly. This innovation product by Gemmy will delight children of all ages.  I find it fascinating how realistic the my pet firefly looks in the jar.


For the past 25 years Gemmy Industries corporation has been the premier trendsetter in the fields of home decor, advanced animatronics, and lightening and unforgettable novelty items. Their creative approach to product development and hands on attitude has lead to the success of  recognizable brands such as Air Blown inflatables, Snow Globes,  Light show, Lighting Solutions, the Dancing Hamsters and of course the Pop culture phenomenon Big Mouth Billy Bass. Gemmy brands can be found in retail stores throughout the world.


These incredible jars capture the part of nature that kids love.  Offering realistic flight of the firefly, and a bright glowing feature that your sure to find amazing.  My little one was amazed how it flies around and glows. His face lights up every time he taps the jar and the firefly fly’s around the jar and the light blinks. Even my almost 2 yr old niece is excited to see how it lights up with her taping on the lid but my 5 yr old he wanted to know if he can go catch more friends for him outside and put them in the jar.

Here’s a short video of the Magic of My Pet Firefly from Gemmy and my 3 yr old:

My little guy was so excited to watch the glow and flicker. Did you see his face light up. He wanted to let him out. He just wants to set bugs free which is ironic because my 5 yr old wants to keep them locked up in the jar “forever and ever”.

The Firefly’s are available in 3 fun colors. Green, Blue and Pink

And if you adore these firefly’s you’ll sure be amazed and delighted by the animated animals and the a Butterfly collection that will amaze you on how the float and fly around the jar.  Visit for these and more exciting outdoor living products and they even have Halloween Costumes, too.

My Pet Firefly is available at Cracker Barrel and Kmart Stores Nationwide for suggested retail price $14.99
