Easy Paperclip Toy

About: I'm a musician, maker, wannabe YouTuber, introvert, and above all a crazy cat guy.

This simple pop-up toy is fun and easy!

You'll Need:
A paperclip,
Pliers (optional)

Bend the paperclip into an equilateral triangle as shown. Then, seperate the two ends. To use the toy, overlap the top and bottom ends, and then drop the triangle on the ground. If all goes well, it should pop back up about as high as it was dropped from. If not, keep fiddling with it until you get it right.
Enjoy, and don't forget to subscribe for lots of other cool projects!
