My 12 year old grandson really enjoyed it. It was easy to build. He thought it should do more then shake under a light but he still enjoyed it.

A grasshopper that won't hop

My 10 yr old daughter was able to assemble it for the most part herself. It's a cute little thing. We took it outside into the sun to watch it "hop". No such luck. It just sat and stared at us with those big eyes. Upon disassembly I discovered it has an intermittent connection between the solar collector and vibrator motor. I would have rated it lower but she learned something putting it together.
If your grasshopper resists hopping, please contact us. We provided our customer information for receiving a replacement hopping solar grasshopper.

Cute 'n Crazy Grasshopper

I received this as a gift. I thought it would be a lot bigger. The picture on the box is very deceiving. I carefully followed the instructions which for an adult I thought were difficult to do. I am mechanical as well. Then the grasshopper did nothing. I held it in front of a 100 watt bulb. I even opened my window in the middle of winter in a cold climate on a sunny day and nothing. I called and told Fat Brain of the situation and was sent another grasshopper immediately. This time I did not put the grasshopper together right away, but instead held the solar panel in front of a 100 watt bulb and presto, the little motor started to work. I opened my window and it also worked in direct sunlight. When held the panel just in front of the glass it would not work. Wish it did because I wanted to see my grasshopper move and shake in the afternoons when the sun hits my window. I thought that any light would power this cute little insect. I will just have to wait until spring and summer when I can have my window opened.

Review of Frightened Grasshopper Solar Powered Bug

It was easy for my 9 year old son to assemble. He likes how he can scare people with it. I wish it came with info on solar power and how that energy is used to move the motor.

We are having difficulty getting to work.
If your solar grasshopper is too calm let us know. We shipped a readily frightened grasshopper as a replacement.

The grasshopper was fairly easy to assemble. My 10 year old son put it together and put it in the windowsill to see what it would do. It is pretty cute, but did not hold his attention for a long time. It just skitters around aimlessly.

Product review of Frightened Grasshopper Solar Powered Bug

I was disappointed with the overall size of the box and item. It looks so small and for the price seems too small, especially to give as a gift. I think the toy will be neat and fun when played with, but I will not know until next week.
