My Locust does not move! – Novel Solar Powered Locust Reviews

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