Good intro to the wonder of solar power
on July 4, 2012
We set this up for our 8 year old. There's no way he could have set this up himself. I suppose a 5th grader or older could. Once set up, it was easy to understand and appreciate the free, clean, limitless power of the sun. He can easily adjust the solar panel to face the sun for best power capture. Overall a nice, educational toy, though once set up, I wonder if I am more impressed with the toy then the amount of fun my child gets from it. Makes a nice gift - a little different and more educational than all the toys stacked in the basement until you need to toss them. Can't give it 5 stars since it's too complex for a child <11 or so to set up. That means no fun until Dad has a minute to assemble it.
