What would you expect for so little money? – Solar Powered Toys Educational DIY Kit Set (6-Model) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Just as others wrote, it's quite simple and fun to build. A good way to introduce kids to model building. You won't be sorry if anything goes wrong because it's so cheap.
Cons:
The box of this kit is made of very thin cardboard that does not really protect the contents. I received my kits squeezed in a one-size-smaller bubble-wrap envelope. Originally intended as a present, I had to repack it before I could give it. The solar panel is weak. It needs either full sunshine, or (being winter now here) a strong halogen desktop lamp.
Other:
It's a pity for the poor packaging, I would happily pay $1-2 more if it arrived intact.
Bottomline:
Fun & cheap.
