Cute and worthy – Solar Powered Crawling Tortoise Educational Toy - Green Reviews

posted by iyorgova on 05/23/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
1. It is a cute little toy with no obvious defects
2. Works fine in direct sunlight
3. It is indeed educational as my daughter was eager to know how sun made it 'become alive'
4. Build quality is good enough to withstand handling from a 3.5 years old child
Cons:
Nothing really worth mentioning. I know it would not last forever due to the lifetime of the photovoltaic panel but I am sure it will last as long as it is amusing enough. ;)
Other:
An amusing toy to demonstrate the use of alternative power sources more friendly to nature. Too bad that there is not really much choice of toys of this kind. Most of the toys nowadays require batteries and lots of them! That is neither cheap nor good for the environment.
Bottomline:
The price is a bit high but that is to be expected as solar cells do not come very cheap. However, I have no regrets buying this one and my daughter really likes the toy a lot! It has become one of her favourites the second we put it in sunlight.
