Cute and fun little item – Novel Solar Powered Locust Reviews

posted by hawc1 on 01/27/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Nice design. Decent build quality. Cute. Unique. Kids love it. No batteries needed.
Cons:
Needs a bright flash light or incandescent bulb. Needs fairly bright sunlight. Don't expect a wimpy flashlight to work with it.
Other:
A magnifying glass will help focus the light when the sun is less intense. Bought one for myself and then another one for my dad once he saw it. Buy two to keep each other company. They get lonely and break. A roach version is also available.
Bottomline:
Unique little item. Fun for awhile.
