I still miss my ladybug flashlight. Wahhhhhhhh! I had one when I was maybe 6... 'twas broken a year or so later. I kept all the pieces until no doubt someone sneaked it into the trash.

A version of this light, with the plastic side switch, was still commonly available in the early 1970s, when my brother received one as a present. Not a bad light, actually.

I have the same as model 433 which seems to be a much earlier version.
It has a slide on/off button on the top
