Solar Powered Toys

Solar Power has tremendously become popular these days. More and more people are switching towards solar energy in their day to day life. Solar Power has plenty of applications be it for residential or commercial purpose. We at Greenworldinvestor have always tried to increase awareness amongst our readers about the advantages of using solar energy. There are plenty of solar products available which aim at reducing our expenses and are also more energy efficient and environment friendly. Having talked about the complex solar products, I would now like to draw the attention of my readers towards solar powered toys. You heard it right! Kids now a days always need a variety of toys to play. The battery operated toys are expensive and demand changing batteries at regular intervals. I was browsing the internet for some educational toys for my son, when I stumbled upon few and would like to share them with you too. If we believe in Solar energy, better introduce it to the young minds at an early age too.

These toys have a solar panel inside which can be put under the sun and when charged can be connected with the toy to move them. They come with different parts, which can be easily assembled to form different objects, thus providing more variety to the kids. Some of them also have a gear box and charging station.

1) 6-in-1 Educational Solar Kit Build Your Own Science Toy DIY – It is a green colored toy, where the kids can assemble the parts and form six different objects out of it – a Solar Revolving Plane, Solar Windmill, Solar Plane, Solar Airboat, Solar Puppy, Solar Car.
