The solar powered robot can be transformed into 14 different robot modes which include a multitude of comical and functional movements. The user can easily change from a wagging-tail dog -> running beetle -> walking crab -> surfer -> speedster -> zombie chaser… The robot kit provides unique accessories (included) and parts that make the robot move on land and water.
With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to start children on the path to learning basic concepts behind these technologies. Fortunately, this product is powered by the sun, so there are no batteries required. The robot moves in the direct sunlight and allows children to create and use their infinite imagination.
There are two levels in building the robot kit. Level one includes: Turtle-bot, Beetle-bot, Quadru-bot, Boat-bot, Walker-bot, Dog-bot, and Wheel-bot. After they amuse themselves with the entry level, can challenge their manipulative skills with second level: Roly Poly-bot, Auto-bot, Slither-bot, Surf-bot, Zombie-bot, Crab-bot, and Row-bot. Additional features includes: adjustable polarity on the solar panel to change direction of motor rotation, retractable robot head which can be quickly stored in the upper body, the robot head can be installed in the front, top or rear of the gearbox, and a transparent housing to see the movements of the gears.
As the saying goes, “Our children are the future.”And if anything is certain about that future, it is that renewable energy sources and green technologies will play a major role in our children’s lives. With 14 in 1 Educational Solar Robot Kit, let them learn about their future and have fun doing it with. Ages: 10+

Impressed my 10 year old

I bought this as an Xmas present for my 10 year old who told me recently he no longer believed in Santa. I didn't have to get him something great, so I figured any gift will do. He was very happy to receive this gift. He is not a robot enthusiast but he is excited to build this one.
14 in 1 is well organized

At this point I have only built one of the 14 possible robots, and have had no problems. The kit allows for the organization of the parts into zip lock bags with nice stick on labels. This is a remarkably useful idea, and it doesn't take all that long to load up the bags with parts. I am looking forward to building the 4 wheel car next. Now if it would only stop raining ;-)
Good entry level kit

My 9 year old son and I have enjoyed putting the "robots" together and playing with the 14 in 1 kit. The instructions are easy to follow and very precise. The parts are easy to assemble and disassemble and fit well. The only issue I found was that it is a little frail for the rigors of a 9 year old who wants to use the stuff he builds, particularly the boat. I also haven't had much luck getting it to run with anything but direct sunlight. With that said I still think it was worth purchasing.
