Get your kids into eco-friendly play with the Renewable Energy Racers Set. Making it fun to go Green, these remote controlled racecars are powered by three different renewable energy sources.

Using a miniature windmill, solar panel, and hydrogen fuel cell to give them juice, the Renewable Energy Racers Set offers up to 20 minutes of racing time – and that’s for a 10 to 30 minute charge. If they are running off the hydrogen fuel cell, you’ll get five minutes of power from a three-minute charge.

The kit comes with a basic remote equipped with left/right and forward/reverse controls, a 10′ range, and a charging cord (in case natural power sources are readily available). You’ll also need six AA batteries that are needed for the remotes. You can buy it here for $59.99.
