In 2019, your choices of baubles to decorate your car, home or office are almost infinite. But nothing quite beats a solar-powered dancing Groot from the Guardians of the Galaxy. The only thing that could make these little Groots better would be if they didn’t require batteries or a wall-socket to run. What’s that you say? There are solar-powered options that don’t need either of these things? And I’m extremely handsome? Well, thank you, anonymous stranger!
Rechargeable solar-powered dancing Groots allow you to watch these little guys groove for as long as the sun shines and the rivers flow. Simply put, just stick them anywhere they can see the sun (like a car dashboard or near a window in your office) and they’ll keep boogying. They don’t require any alternative forms of charging or electricity nor do they have to be plugged into a wall socket if they’re in sight of the sun.
What you’re looking for in a solar-powered dancing Groot will remain pretty much constant. However, there are some differences between the two available products to keep in mind. Use your judgment to determine what you need and which solutions would best serve those needs. We’ll identify some features you should keep in mind at the bottom of this article after we list our recommendations.
What Are the Best Groot Solar Dancers For Sale in 2019?
Cute Solar Powered Groot Bobblehead
This adorable sun dancing Groot is designed for ultra-cuteness. The four inches tall, head-shaking dynamo will spruce up (get it?) any car dashboard or window-sill. The figure is part of a set that includes solar dancing characters like Spiderman, Angry Birds, and Iron Man. Feel free to collect more than one. The user reviews are positive overall, with most people commenting on the toy’s cuteness and durability.
The figure is extremely detailed with large eyes and an expressive face. Users report that the dancing action is highly pronounced and visible even from the backseat of a car. Some people have even reported dropping the toys on the floor (which we definitely do not recommend) and still seeing it work afterward.
- Adorable face
- Great moves
- Goes for cuteness over faithfulness to the franchise image, which may not be up some peoples alley
Body Knocker - Dancing Potted Groot
This six-inch-tall Groot solar dancer looks a lot like the one in Guardians of the Galaxy. Of course, you can fit this one onto the dashboard of your car and it’ll dance for you. So I guess they’re a little different. Less cartoony and cutesy than number one on this list, this faithful adaptation is durably constructed out of hard plastic and designed to get down as soon as the sun comes up.
At only $13 plus shipping, this little guy is an unbelievable value. This one’s head is attached to the base so only its body moves. It’s basically the opposite of a bobblehead. Call it a “bobble-body” if you will. Its motion is effectively the opposite of the previous toy’s, whose head moves but whose body remains stationary.
The only negative is that the solar Groot emits a quiet clicking sound as it gyrates to the imaginary music, which might annoy some people. In our experience it’s very faint though, and only noticeable in extremely quiet environments.
- Looks like movie Groot
- Perfect for what it’s designed for
- A slight clicking sound is emitted by the toy when it dances in the sun
