Did you know that the ladybug is actually a type of beetle? Over 5,000 species of this pretty little bug are found all over the world! In the UK, Australia and South Africa it is often called a ladybird, and in Malta they are called nannakola. Ladybugs are generally considered to be useful bugs, as many species often feed on aphids and other types of pests in gardens, orchards, etc. In some cultures they are even considered to be good luck! For example, if a ladybug crawls across a girl’s hand in central Europe, that means she’ll probably be married within the year! Or if one flies into your bedroom while you’re on vacation in Italy, you may just have some very good luck! A popular insect with children all over the world, ladybugs sure are fun little creatures. Have even more fun with your very own flip-in-spin ladybug! This wild and wacky gal goes head over heels, literally, when you wind her up!! Watch her twist, turn and do a complete back-flip, all after just a few turns of the knob!! Great item to slip under your grandchild’s pillow while they’re sleeping! Or small enough to make a great addition to any Christmas stocking!
