Boat Toy / Boat-Car Sun

Boat Toy

This is a toy to be used outdoors, typical kid´s vehicle with boat shape. It uses present technology as the rest of the vehicles than we could buy. It also included solar panel inside the sail to be recharged while the kid is playing outdoors. It can be recharged like the other cars, been connected to alternating current at home. The users drive the cars but they have to use sail to stay at shadow and they will get their vehicle recharged too. It ´s an added value for the kids, "driving their cars, sailing the seas" and getting fun while they learn about solar power and wind power and how It works. Kids will become aware of renewable energy.
