Bugged Out

Kids & Baby

We’re not kids, but we’re pretty sure if we were, we’d get a rise out of these imaginatively crafted jumping and flying insects, designed by Brazilian designer Isabella Torquato. The ecologically minded Torquato, who took a cue from the creatures of the Amazon rainforest, has given each of her characters a personal history and names—these two are Leopold and Miss Tanaka—and has helpfully equipped them with a set of springy metal legs and a suction cup that attaches to any surface for a few seconds before coming unstuck to launch the little bugs into a jump or short flight.
