Hi Anne, It depends where you live. Here in the UK we have a chain of stores called "Poundland" which sells solar garden lights for - you guessed it - a pound. I suppose the equivalent in USA is the dollar store - do these exist? Once you have your cheapo solar light ,carefully dismantle it and maybe swop the white LED for a couple of red ones (wired in series) one for each eye. and there you have it. Good luck! The Vap.
