6-in-1 Educational Solar Kit

  • Building these projects teach the benefits of solar energy while having fun
  • Build six different working models including an airboat, windmill, puppy and two different planes

It was smaller than we imagined, but still worthwhile. We made the car, and it fits in the palm of  hand. Small Children will need some help assembling it, and will most likely need assistance to change it from one configuration to another. It seem at bit on the fragile side, so it is better for solo play than with friends. If it does not have direct sun or strong indoor light, it doesn’t have enough power to move. Given the price, its a must buy for every parent wishing to give a gift to child on birthday
