Making a Solar Powered Robot Kit

Let’s make a solar powered robot dog! This educational construction kit for kids features a small motor and a tiny solar panel. Once complete you’ve got yourself a green energy toy that’s powered by the sun and doesn’t need batteries. Making the body of the robot dog with all the tiny plastic gears was a little fiddly but with a bit of patience we got there in the end. If you watch until the end you’ll be treated to some bonus footage of a ‘real dog’. Enjoy!
