    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: No battery is not used. This toy is powered by solar cells mounted on top of which is connected to a small vibrating a motor (like in your phone;-). Thanks to a motor beetle makes movement like small jumps. Very fun to watch several of these beetles. Collected all excellent.

    Cons: To work to a very bright sun. Beetle will not work in the shade, on a cloudy day or even in the evening, the setting sun. For movement need less smooth surface, because the beetle will not even cling "legs."

    Other: Highly recommended. Great buy for the price.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap! and Cute and works exactly as described by most reviews. Packaging was fine and shipment was a few weeks. Of course the free shipping makes it even more worthwhile.

    Cons: It doesn't really move forward but mostly jiggles around on the spot. I have seen similar toys ( with battery) that jiggle but move forward more like a real bug.

    Other: A one time buy but still nice for the price. will try different ones to compare- I just love solar powered stuff :)

  • Funny toy

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: As a start experiments with solar energy is nice. perhaps it is also suitable as a sample for school supplies or school experiment in physics.

    Cons: To function properly you need a lot of light, so you need to really make it shine stirred to life. I was hoping that it will move more like a live beetle, but only vibrates and on the basis that moves.

    Other: Why not please anyone this toy at this price

    posted by richardfg on 19:53:17 G1T 04/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's lightweight, works well in sunlight. It's nice to play tricks on people who are afraid of insects because it vibrates to move around looking like a real insect real. It is easy to use because it only depends on sunlight and can be used by children of all ages, my 5 kids loved it.

    Cons: The only problem is that it only works in bright sunlight and can not be used on cloudy days and can not be used in indoor environments, such as sealed.

    Other: Very nice.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It wont jump or play dead, but if u have enought light it will move all around. Seen to be well built and able to survive 3 year old kids, as my son. Very simple device that even I could explaim to my kids how it woks.

    Cons: Needs direct sun light what is a bit inconvenient. could find a way for it to work during night (like when package arrived anf my son asked what that was).

    Other: So far it looks like a well spent money. For this price do like myself, buy 3 at a time.

    Pros: With this bug, you'll enjoy a lot of fun. It's a cute device that you entertained for a long time.

    Cons: No cons.

    Other: As an original idea you can use with your partner as solar vibrator. Bend the legs out so they could attach to the insect body body partner. Directing the sun and then enjoy fun! Even better is when it is cloudy - cloud control the unpredictable power of enlightenment, thus the power of vibration. Just be careful that you discovered someone there. It would be probably very uncomfortable.
