Solar Boat – Toy Review

Solar Boat – Toy Review

The Thames and Kosmos ‘Solar Boat Kit’ is a fun way to introduce your children to the world of basic engineering and construction, coupled with the marvels of solar power. The kit comes with the opportunity to learn how to build 6 different models – windmill, solar boat, spaceship, solar fan, rocket and solar boat.

It comes with a well-explained manual which is loaded with pictures and illustrations. The manual also has different questions asked, along with their answers. This further piques the interest of children and makes them ask more questions.

The Solar Boat Kit combines both construction and creativity and is a great way to spend a day at home. For children who are interested in understanding the mechanics of solar-powered models, this kit is a great gateway. It does contain small parts, which is why it has been recommended for children above the age of 8. However, the age recommendation is for unsupervised children. The kit can easily be used by children below 8, under the supervision of their parents.

Children have the chance to learn how solar cells convert energy from sunlight into electricity to run motors. Concepts which they have otherwise only studied in books will be brought to life in a fun and interactive manner.
