Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Misc. Tech, Toys

Solar CarTeach your kidlets early how to save the environment with this Solar Car. Made in Switzerland (duh,) it is handmade of wood, has plexiglass wheels with rubber covers, steel axles, and a solar panel to replace fuel. At a size of 3.25 x 3.25 x 6.25-inches, the mini-vehicle will keep going as long as the sun is out or until the child is smart enough to stop pushing it along. The toy is available for $125.00.

Seems like a good idea. Again, saving the energy is an excellent thing to do, and teaching it, is going in the right direction.

Wow, this is quite inventive… at least someone is out there thinking of unique ideas to tackle our energy crisis!  We need more thinkers and inventors who are willing to try different unconventional methods!

Ya its great of piece of work. but it looks more like a science project than a working machine. I know about lots of experiments going on but i hope this one is real. Still a good thing to show to kids, they need things like that to learn.

Great thing they are.thanks for the information.

Did any of you guys actually read the article?  Driving?  Riding?  Tackling the energy crisis?  This thing is mere INCHES.  Try actually reading before you comment.

Nice invention to educate kids early on of the importance of being “GREEN”.

Good way to get kids to learn about the environment. And to have them learn early enough so that they can help save it. They should have this in like kidnergarden or even preschool maybe. i dont know how what age level this is for but the earlier the age the better.

lol @doug, it seems people still arent noticing its only about 6 inches long

This would be a good way to introduce children to solar technology.  I think it’s a great way to spend time with your child too.
