Build your very own little robots using the energy of solar power.
This great beginners' introduction to solar power technology requires no batteries, glue or screws for assembly - instead you build the kit with easy to connect pieces. Each of the four robotic designs come with active movements and a safe mechanical gearbox. The Robot features walking legs and moving wheels, the T-Rex and Rhino Beetle both have walking legs and opening jaws, while the Drill vehicle has a turning drill with moving wheels. Fun way to learn.
Eight year olds like more challenging construction sets, and are starting to get seriously interested in science. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. They can also start doing cleverer magic and love doing tricks. And anything they can throw or shoot at someone else is also very popular.
