Information about Frightened Grasshopper Solar Powered Bug

I was so excited for my boys to play with this toy. I ordered two of these. The concept is so awesome. I opened the product and was excited to see that they would get to put it together. The instructions were well laid out and easy to follow. That's were the excitement ended. One of the grasshoppers broke in the process of putting it together. The small plastic tail end broke off. The other didn't fall apart, but did not work when we put it together. I disassembled each of them thinking they had been put together incorrectly. They had not. I checked the solar panels and one didn't work at all. I actually had to spin the motor to get it to work. The other motor worked, but I had to put a high powered flashlight directly onto the solar panel to make it work. In the end the boys didn't get to play with their solar bugs at all. The concept of this toy is great, too bad it's not what the manufacturer promised!
Frightened Grasshoppers require a gentle hand in assembly. We contacted our customer to offer our assistance for obtaining grasshoppers that readily hop.

Grasshopper does NOT work ie move, at all.
The grasshopper was just waiting for a sunny day. He's on the move now - and our customer is pleased. If you believe any Fat Brain Toy is defective, we leap into action and serve you well. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for details.

Even under intense sunlight, mine won't work. Only if I put it an inch away from my kitchen light does it work, which is useless.
We contacted our customer to assist. A manufacturer's warranty is included with every Hopping Grasshopper to ensure that your solar grasshopper is looking good and quick on his feet. If you need assistance, we leap into action - Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.)

It just doesn't seem to work well. We got it to work once outside in high sunlight, and it didn't do much. We were told it would hop but that never happened, just a little movement. Can't get it to work under a light bulb.
We hop to it when your Solar Grasshopper doesn't! We contacted our customer with information for receiving a replacement. The grass is greener here. Visit our Returns & Exchanges center for details.
