    Cool, but fragile and hard to build Well, not hard to build so much as instructions that are too complex. It’s neat when it’s done but the electronic parts are fragile. After five minutes of operation the wiring broke, no abuse of any kind. A real slog to put together and then my 8 year old was immediately disappointed when the parts failed

    Tin can robot The robot was fun to put together. I thought that my son would have been able to participate in more of the process but the screws were so small and difficult to screw in that he could not. He did have fun seeing the finished product. Overall a good toy. He brought it in to school for his “make your own robot project” and it was a big hit!

    An easy, fun robot build that lasts and lasts! Our kids loved making these robots, and put them together in an hour or less with a lot of help from their father. They were 4 and 6 years old when we got this kit and they were not able to make them on their own, even though they are quite proficient at building with litle LEGOS, et cetera. Just a word to the wise, that this project will probably require adult help or at the very least supervision for children who are under age nine or ten maybe?I am looking at our boys’ creations right now, which are proudly on display on the shelf above our computer desk, because they still love them and occasionally pay with them or try to rebuild them. we also took pictures of them for their home school blog, as they were so very proud of their first MOVING robots! Well worth the price.
