Solar robot – fun from the sun!

Do you struggle as much as I do to find toys for kids older than eight or nine?  I really do and the Lego theme is kind of getting old for me. So I am loving this Solar Robot, more so because it’s not just one toy, it’s six –  an airboat, a windmill, car, puppy and two different types of plane.Better yet, it requires no batteries to engage an inquisitive mind.

The six-in-one Solar Robot kit consists of 21 pieces including a motor and solar panel, so your young genius will spend a bit of time putting the various parts together before marvelling at his or her creation!  If lack of solar power poses a problem, there is a back-up 50 watt bulb to get things going.

I definitely see this kit coming our way for Christmas for my ten-year-old son!  Available from the Cool Things website for $39.95.
