A Dollhouse for EcoGeeks?

When I was growing up, girls had their Barbie dollhouse and viagra tablets we guys had our awesome Castle Greyskull from which to battle the evils of Skeletor. But now there is a playhouse for all sexes of EcoGeeks! Thames and Kosmos, a toy company, has come out with what they call their "Power House," a kit that lets you build your own little house that's full of alternative energy goodies!
Imagine a dollhouse complete with solar panels, a wind turbine, a greenhouse, and a desalination system! You can also "build and operate an electric train, windmill, solar cooker, solar hot water tank, hygrometer, electric motor, power hoist, sail car, and more!"
The kit also comes with a 96-page manual which details the 70 experiments that you can conduct with the house, as well as the 20 building projects that are included. It is structured as "An Adventure in Sustainable Living," following a bunch of people living on an island with limited resources, following their uses of sustainable technologies. For those of you looking for nice little gifts for your kids (or your inner EcoGeek), this sounds like fun!

Impressive - now you just need to invent a shrink ray!
It might sound trite

but I think it's great that a new generation will grow up with the awareness that alternative power is child's play.
Now, if we can just get our leaders to grasp it...

Does anyone have suggestions of something along this line that does not cost $150? I'm looking for something for a toydrive.

It's green and it's a model and it's a robot and it is solar powered - search for beam bots or solar robots. Make magazine's store sell one for 25 bucks.
You could power this thing

with a humdinger. Good stuff. I'd like to see something that's more modular though so you can add stuff over time.
