    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cheap, really cheap.
    Nice look.
    Easy to use.
    Low weight.
    It looks like a real insect at first look :)
    (A will surprise my mother in law - she gonna crazy :) )

    Cons:

    It needs really strong light to make a vibration.
    My halogen desk lamp (40W) react with it only if distance between 2-3" (5-7cm)
    Outdoor at normal light it does not move.
    Eyes of that toy not have sufficiently glue and they drops often.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    If solar panel was a little more efficient (makes more voltage) it will be a nice.
