First, OWI’s geek squad brought us the beloved T3 Transforming Solar Robot, and now they’ve dusted off their labs coats and goggles to create their latest triumph: T4 Transforming Solar Robot. “T4” not only has more transformations than the popular T3, but also comes equipped with larger, safer parts, so even younger children can be included in the assembling fun.
“T4” is completely solar-powered so you never need to buy batteries. Not only will T4 provide a new understanding of solar power as a source of renewable energy, but it will also get kids outdoors for some healthy fun in the sun. This kit gives the option to easily transform between one of four different modes: Robot, with walking legs as well as moving wheels; Insecta, with six walking legs and moving jaws; T-Rex, with walking legs and moving jaws; and Drill Vehicle, similar to a miner’s driller/drilling bit with moving wheels. This is an opportunity to acquire solar power knowledge, learn about mechanical transmissions, and get outside to play.
Specifications, assembled dimensions: Robot: 2.1″ x 3.7″ x 4.1″; Insecta: 5.2″ x 3.1″ x 2″; T-Rex: 5.4″ x 3.1″ x 2″; Drill Vehicle: 4.3″ x 2.4″ x 2.2″; Solar panel output: 75mA.
The T4 Transforming Solar Robot is available from OWI Robot at www.owirobot.com, and online for $19.95.
