    We'd usually call them "texas grasshoppers" in school. When made from non-plastic-covered paperclips they'll often pop just from falling on their side and can make handy (though obviously mostly harmless) booby traps - set them and lean them against a hidden side of objects people are likely to pick up or move like books, pop/beer cans, etc. Once they lift/move them - SNAP.

    Ha, I love these! These are really fun, especially if you get a really sturdy one; they fly!
