Our design was inspired by old-fashioned, wind-up table toys. But this retro robot has a bunch more stamina, thanks to its motor and cams!

It was amazing. My daughter is 8 and was able to put most of it together on her own without any help. She’s so proud of her creation

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.
