The car is not advisable for children below three years old because of its small parts. The concept of the mini solar racer car is nice; however, I do not find it attractive enough as a toy for my kids. I consider it a toy for the big boys. But Still, it is nice to hear that manufacturers are now getting more concern to our environment.

I am so happy to hear with the new passed bill aiming for the safety of little ones. The safe toy bill requires toy manufacturers to eliminate LED contents in toys for kids below 12 years old. With this bill, I will now be confident enough to buy any toys for my toddlers. There will be no more worries about them eating or biting on their toys when playing. I just hope that all of the toy manufacturers will be responsible enough to comply with this bill for the safety of my and our kids. Thanks to this bill, because millions of kids all over are now safe. [Click here for more details about Alligator Pull Toy]

IKEA may spend a large amount of money however; the contribution they can bring to the society is priceless. They bring a permanent solution to our nature’s problem in gas emission.

Let us all support projects as what IKEA had.
As far as big-box retailers go, it’s hard to dispute the sphere of influence that IKEA casts over the world market. Striking a golden balance between quality and affordability has allowed the furniture giant to build an extensive network of 270 stores in 35 countries, attracting half a billion customers every year. IKEA’s recent investment is exciting because it stands to mobilize these massive distribution channels towards the proliferation of green technology.
IKEA’s GreenTech fund was established eight months ago and is looking to invest in up to ten startups over the next five years. These investments will focus in five key areas: solar panels, alternative light sources, product materials, energy efficiency, and water saving and purification. IKEA hopes to bring its first wave of green tech products to market within three to four years.
