Solar Wild Boar (Mini Solar Kit)
More cute than terrifying, this solar-powered wild boar calmly trots right around any obstacle. Using only 47 parts, this colorful wooden boar "walks" on spinning feet powered by a solar panel on its back and a motor inside. All interior mechanics, including gears and axles, are clearly visible, allowing kids to focus on how the technology works. Perfect for any animal-loving engineer! Measures 3.5"x1.85"x 2.25".
In rural settings, people are urged not to leave rubbish to easy access of wild boars, but OWI's Solar Wild Boar is a fun-loving solar kit that smiles as it klippy-klocks around any mess. Building the 3.56 inch x 1.85 inch x 2.24 inch plus size figure, it is ideal for a do-it-yourself science fair, after-school, or summer workshop project with the bonus gift of learning mechanical transmission and electrical motor theory. Experts believe that the retention of child's learning experience is multiplied if they can coordinate reading with actual hands on experience. With only 47 assembly parts, it's a wonderful instrument for the beginner enthusiast 8 years and up, and a gateway to ignite opportunities in fun learning.
What's better than a beginner robotics kit that's entertaining, easy-to-do, and requires no batteries? I fell in love with these kits at a trade show. The completed models stood in trays, and when a halogen light was held over them, the frightened grasshopper "chittered" along, the frog hopped, and the super solar racing car would have been off the table and away down the aisle if it wasn't contained! The newest addition to this series is the Flapping Sea Gull which attaches to your window with a suction cup so you can watch it "fly." Kits contain all pieces needed to assemble them (no tools or batteries required!), including small solar panels. They can be assembled in an hour or two, and when complete can be placed in the sun for instant fun. Watch out though, that car is fast. -Jess CHOKING HAZARD (1). Not <3yrs.
