    OWI's Mini Solar Kit line provides children with the means to harness the power of the sun bringing their robots to life. But this Mini Solar Kit utilizes not 1 but 2 forms of alternative energy. This kit will teach your child how to engineer a robot that uses solar and hydraulic power in harmony, while challenging manual dexterity, and developing self-confidence. Dodeca 12 in 1 SolarHydraulic Robot's gear box is a true duel threat as it is powered by direct sunlight, and a hydraulic transmission. No batteries are required. With Dodeca, children are able to actively learn two forms of alternative energy while they create and use their infinite imagination. With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to start children on the path to learning basic concepts behind these technologies. Dodeca has 12 exciting forms that can be separated in two animated building modes: Automotive (Buggy, Obstacle Avoiding Rover, Excavator, Forklift) and Animals (Elephant, Pterosaurs, Monkey, Ostrich, T-Rex, Crocodile, Scorpion, Dog-Walker).
