Wah Shing Toys Co., Ltd. (Wah Shing), one of the world's largest toy manufacturers and Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies (Horizon), known for their H-Racer Toy Car, form a strategic partnership to develop fuel cell powered toys.

Under the agreement, Wah Shing will scale up manufacturing of Horizon's existing line of tech-toy products, with the aim of developing new fuel cell-powered products for major international toy companies. Richard Ellert, Managing Director of Wah Shing, commented, "As a leading toy manufacturer, Wah Shing is very excited to be at the forefront of "green toy" technology.

Building on its fuel cell technology, Horizon is developing a new generation of non-toxic energy storage devices that would feed small fuel cell power systems designed into next-generation toys and that could be re-used hundreds of times. Horizon has already introduced a hydrogen fuel cell conversion kit concept for radio control car hobbyists. Instead of using a 7.2V Nickel Cadmium (NiCad) battery, the kit uses three re-useable hydride storage prototypes that feed a 7.2V fuel cell which is able to run the car four to five times longer than a NiCad battery.

The H-Racer is available on Amazon.com for $99.
