A little cardboard night-light that runs entirely on solar power! This easy to assemble kit is fun to make and use but can also be used to teach children about sustainability.
We've been fans of the original Casagami houses for a while (because who doesn't like tiny light up buildings), but now the range has expanded to include a sunlight powered church, school house, castle and even a miniature Bauhaus inspired apartment block! Because they're made of cardboard they can be easily decorated and customised - perfect for an eco conscious, educational gift.
Each Casagami consists of an adhesive « Solarmodule » and a sheet of pre-cut paperboard. The lot is shipped in a flat cardboard envelope.
The dimensions of an assembled Casagami are 80 x 90 x 65 mm (may vary depending on the model). Building it only takes a couple of minutes and doesn't require any glue.
Place your Casagami on the window sill during the day to charge and light it up when it is time to go to bed!
A day's charge in the sunlight will give you 5 hours of light.
