About the Designers
Chico Bicalho Chico Bicalho Brazil 

Chico Bicalho was born in Rio de Janeiro and studied at an elementary school where the football field had trees throughout, because the school was against cutting them down. Later he moved to Petropolis, RJ, an area surrounded by the South Atlantic tropical rainforest. He believes in having a spiritual life, in freedom, and in peace; supports the theory that the earth is one living thing and feels that humans should understand nature, live with nature, and be equal to nature; received a BFA in sculpture from RISD and MFA in photography NYU; since 1995 has been working with a group of friends on reforestation projects replanting native South Atlantic tropical rain forest trees.

Isabella Torquato Isabella Torquato Brazil 

Isabella Torquato is an industrial designer and advertising art director living in Rio de Janeiro. Isabella designs from her mythical, ecological aura and firm attitude towards life. In the Fall 2004, Chico Bicalho and Isabella Torquato introduced three delightful Jumping Insects of the Brazilian Rainforest (each complete with its imaginative story) from the memories of their childhoods in Brazil

Legend has it that Miss Tanaka is a dragonfly found in the mountainous rainforests of southern Brazil. She has iridescent, golden wings and a bright blue tummy. She likes to hop from plant to plant on small ponds- just as the sun is getting warm and the water lily flowers are beginning to open. Legend also has it that the other bugs of the forest fall in love with her. To help Miss Tanaka take flight, press her down against a smooth, clean surface until the suction cup on the bottom grabs on to it. Wait a few seconds, and, as the suction cup releases, Miss Tanaka flies off to another place. Please make sure you stay away from Miss Tanaka's flight path as she hops. Keep in mind Miss Tanaka's wings are quite delicate.

Wait for it: She takes her own sweet time to jump!

 from Kennebunkport, ME– Verified Buyer

The same comment as for all our wonderful products:


Two grandchildren had super fun making it jump once they got the hang of it.

Would suggest a simple slip with a line or two of instructions --
like: WHAT IS IT ?

NOT WHAT EXPECTED!

 from TAMPA, FL– Verified Buyer

THE RIGHT WINGS ARE A LITTLE TILTED AND COULDN'T FIX THEM, I STILL CAN'T MAKE IT JUMP AS IS ADVERTISED, DIDN'T RETURN IT ONLY BECAUSE THE FEES WERE TOO HIGH.

great addition to collection

 from bowling green ky– Verified Buyer

I collect these wonderful creatures and this was
just another wonderful character. I love that they are toys that work, beautiful and fun to look at and show--along with a tiny little story line included. My only problem is that there are not more of these whimsical little guys.
