This Mechanical Butterfly Was Designed to Be Decorated by the Child

 - Jan 15, 2015
Once upon a time, a child made his own toy from the simplest of things. Times have certainly changed; however, this mechanical butterfly toy is an example of a contemporary plaything with some grounding in classic creativity. The product may be manufactured with wiring and moving auto-moving, but it encourages the kid to decorate it.

The stand and the body of the Innonex Flying Insects toy are made from neon green plastic, but the wings are the child's job to design. A blank slate and a set of colorful paints lets the young user have some input in the quality of his or her gizmo. A glance at the price tag will prove that a little DIY involvement also makes certain kids' products more affordable for the parent.
