Bamboo dragonfly / Lighting Toys

Bamboo dragonfly

In poor or underdeveloped areas, there is often a lack of access to electricity due to poverty or inadequate infrastructure, which leaves many children without light to read at night. And because of the lack of supplies, children's childhood toys are scarce. The design combines a bamboo dragonfly toy with a lamp. The dragonfly generates electricity by rotating itself, and at night it can read as a night light, combining play and lighting.
