2008 Toy Fair - Solar Powered Tram

Each year I am fortunate enough to be able to attend the International Toy Fair. It is always an interesting event and has lead me to find some cool toys that I have recommended to others or purchased ourselves.

Later this year we hope that the Roosevelt Island Historical Society will be able to bring the above solar powered tram to market at the Visitors' Kiosk. The product is not yet available to the market and the boxes shown were just prototypes. Perhaps the RIHS can sell the toy with additional stickers so that the purchaser can add the Tram logo (old logo or new?) plus the distinctive Roosevelt Island name to the model's body.

This tram is cardboard and has no floor so it is best viewed from above or at eye level. The age range is ten and up based on the mechanical parts needed to be assembled.
