This amazing toy Cockroach is a little solar powered toy bug that moves around mimicking a real grasshopper. It's very much a life size model of a grasshopper that will bounce around while under light. The toy will educate children about solar power. Once immersed in sunlight your child (or big kid!) will see an effective demonstration of how the power of the sun is harnessed by the solar panel (PV cell) and converted into electrical energy. That electrical power is then used by a motor within the bug to move the toy around on the surface it has been placed on. The toy bug works well in direct sunlight, but if that's not possible it should work well directly under a halogen bulb. The Frightened cockroach is meant for ages 5+. The toy is designed to be suitable as a first time science project to help teach children about alternative forms of energy.
