A good "classic" kids toys – Solar Powered Wooden Helicopter Reviews

posted by mpug0 on 04/02/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It works, and kids can learn about solar panels and sunlight by moving it from direct sunlight into shadows.
The wood is very stable.
Cons:
Some kids might be too rough and throw the helicopter blades down on something hard which could break it. But, if the kid is either smart enough or old enough, you shouldn't have any issues.
Solar panel has to be in direct sunlight, but what do you expect from a tiny solar panel on a small toy?
Other:
The plastic used in the plastic blades could have been reinforced for durability.
Bottomline:
It would seem a bit expensive, but it's a nice classic toy that doesn't need batteries. Kids think it's pretty neat since it "moves by itself".
