When I was growing up, girls had their Barbie dollhouse and 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!
