Fun but not appropriate for small childre – Novel Solar Powered Locust Reviews

posted by pachinko9 on 02/06/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- unique toy that the kids (ages 5 and 6) find fascinating - it doesn't require batteries - looks well made
Cons:
- build quality looks good, but I bought 2 and 1 didn't work - the antenna and the eyes come off easily and make this not appropriate for very small children - doesn't really do much, the bug shakes when but into the sunlight but don't expect it to look like it is walking or hopping - requires direct sunlight and will not work with indoor lighting
Other:
Bottomline:
Fun toy with a good price that can entertain kids and may even be somewhat educational. Looks good but reliability and durability are not the best.
