The OWI 14 in 1 Solar Robot is a unique little robot in that isn’t powered by regular batteries, it’s powered by solar energy and has all the parts you need to make it move on land and water. How cool is that? Not only that, it’s designed to be converted into 14 different shapes. Your kids can start with the entry level shapes (Turtle, Quadru, Beetle, Dog, Boat, Walker, and Wheel) and then they can move on to more challenging shapes (Roly Poly, Auto, Slither, Surf, Zombie, Crab and Row).
How does it work? Adjustable polarity on the solar panel changes the direction of the motor rotation. The robot also has a retractable head which can be installed in the front, top or rear of the gearbox and transparent housing to see the movements of the gears.
Great toy if you want your kids to learn more about this renewable energy and green technology. “When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.” -Kalpana Chawla
