6 in 1 Solar Kit

The weather was sunny enough today to try out our nifty 6 in 1 Solar Kit. The kit is only $6 at AllElectronics.com and you can build several different solar toys using the kit. The kit needs a lot of tweaks to get it to work. A careful hand and an Exacto knife can trim all the plastic parts so they fit together. My favorite build is the little airplane that rotates around. Here’s a video so you can see it work. It was a windy day, so it’s fun to watch the little airplane fight the wind and win! This is a great kit for a parent and child to explore together. It’s not perfect, but a great toy for only $6 bucks.
