Solar-Powered Toy Monkey

by Lambert Varias

The solar-powered toy monkey is meant to help children “appreciate the power of alternative energy.”  It comes in a kit that customers have to assemble, so it can also be a fun way for you and your kids to bond.

Once you’re done assembling, expose the monkey to sunlight and watch it move. Of course if you set it up on a string then it’s going to be more monkey-like, but if your children are used to conventional portable devices, then they’ll probably be amazed that the monkey can move even without batteries.

I wish there was a whole range of little toys and other trinkets that could be powered by the monkey’s solar cell; that way even if your kids get tired of the monkey, they can still re-attach the solar cell to other toys.

You can get the solar-powered toy monkey at Select Solar for £14.19 (appx. $20.42 USD).

  1. getting kids involved at an early age means it’ll become second nature for them to be environmentally friendly. Which has to be a good thing.

    The kids should also know the value and relevance of solar power. Because in the long run, they will also benefit from this.
