Award Winning Solar Transformer Toy Delivers Hours of Fun

Keeping kids entertained, especially in the dog days of summer, is no easy feat. There’s always video games and blockbuster movies, but if you’d rather they not spend the entire break in front of a screen, you’ve got to be a little more creative. Even the pool can get old after a while, so the key is finding a way to spark their imagination without emptying your wallet.

Toys are great, but every parent knows that they average plaything can’t stand up to hard wear and tear of an excited child. Many toys become “played-out” after just a few encounters. Then there’s the struggle to keep fully-charged batteries on hand lest a favorite toy suddenly die in the middle of a game. None of those worries need apply when talking about he Solar Transformers from OWI Inc., however. Their award-winning toy is actually seven different robots in one, providing hours of fun without using a single battery.

Designed to be so much more than just a toy, the Solar Transformers are more like an innovative solar science kit that effortlessly convinces children to exercise their sense of creativity all while enjoying the magic of renewable energy! The plastic modules and solar panels snap together easily without the use of tools, making it safe for kids of all ages. The modules can be rearranged into seven different kinds of vehicles, including a bus, a race car and a dump truck.

The transforming rechargeable station has 2 output plugs; one for solar recharging and the other for battery recharging. Amazingly, the battery charging station can bring the selected unit to full power in about 5 seconds and the solar recharging station will fully recharge in approximately 120 seconds.

Although we’d like to see OWI employ the use of a recycled plastic, we think it’s awesome to include solar energy in a toy. The more exposure kids get to the power of clean technology when they’re young, the more automatic it will be for them to incorporate this sustainable energy into their adult lives.
