Ferris Wheel Kit and NG CUstomer Service

By Unhappy customer

Comments about Ferris Wheel Kit:

NG is extremely disappointing to me in its advertising and overnight mail service, particularly around the holidays. This product arrived 3 days too late, despite online / highly placed advertisements committing to getting this to our home by Christmas. Closing your shipping operation 4 days before Christmas and then promising 24 hour delivery is a sham. I wasted $50 on shipping for a product I had to return, and they never even apologized. Fool me once...

Eco-Battery Vehicles Kit
Eco-Battery Vehicles Kit
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

It's looking increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EVs for short) will be the cars of the future. More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEVs)—which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells—are starting to become practical. Many major auto manufacturers have BEVs in development, and a few already have BEVs on the road today. The challenge in making BEVs a viable transportation solution is the battery. Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances, and more efficient than gasoline engines. Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made.
