The robot was pretty good. The instructions were easy to follow. Great product my 11 year old daughter loved it
It was fun to make but I wish there was a little more to it. Not sure what? Maybe leave the front plate blank and have the kids draw circuitry or some kind of design before attaching it. They’d have more ownership.
My 11 year old was thrilled with the walking robot. I was shocked that he opened the crate & put the whole thing together all by himself. The instructions must have been easy for him to follow and I was happy I didn’t have to get involved!
