Our little collection got started after finding the first two, Flick & Flack, at a Hobby Lobby. When I spotted the first of the pair, I knew I had to to have it for our garden/patio space. Finding the second one was the perfect bonus.
Later that day, my wife found the next member of the group, Princess Twinklebutt. We call her that, because the rear part of her body is a glass globe with solar powered LEDs that twinkle.
The other day my wife found the next member of the group, Hopper. Hopper is a rather large grasshopper with solar powered eyes that light up at night.
The latest members of the group is the A-Team, a group of five colorful ants that I found on Amazon.
Honestly, there might have been a time that I would have rolled my eyes at metal insects in my outdoor space. I can now say that they add so much to our outdoor space. Whenever I get bored, I can easily move them around to add to their story.
