The Sliding Ladybug is smoothly propelled by three vibrating metal rods, and its direction and speed can be easily altered by changing the orientation of the leg rods. The Sliding Ladybug features a colorful body and easy assembly.
How it works
The Sliding Ladybug moves via vibrations from a motor that spins a plate with an off-center weight. This spinning weight generates a rapid up-down vibrating movement that propells the ladybug forwards. You can alter the ladybug’s speed and direction by changing the orientation of the front leg rod. Bending the front leg to the right will cause the ladybug to curve to the left as it moves, while bending the front leg to the left will cause the ladybug to curve to the right. Bending the front leg inward will slow down the ladybug’s movement.
Note: This is a kit. Assembly requires using a screwdriver and snapping parts together. No soldering is required.
