Diabolo Lantern / Toy

Diabolo Lantern
Diabolo Lantern

Diabolo is a toy suit for all ages. In order to improve the environmental damage caused by too much plastic, the two ends of Diabolo were changed into plastic bottles, which extended the service life of plastic bottles. In the process of shaking, diabolo can convert kinetic energy into electric energy and store energy. Turn on the switch at night, which can be tied to the beam of the house for lighting. A bottle full of water can also scatter light. Materials are also traditional bamboo and metal.
