This adorable little creature is a simple mechanical toy that takes only 10 minutes to print. Thread a piece of string through the holes on the reverse side and hook it onto anything. Then by alternating pulling the left and right end make the bat rise to the top. Then release the tension in the string and it will drop back to the starting position.
We also used this mechanic in other toys which you can find here
