1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality and defective 1 Jan 2010
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
After purchasing several Science Museum toys this Christmas and spending time making them together with my son and his grandad, we found this just DID NOT WORK.
Poor quality, flimsy and defective - what a way to put children off science.
This does not deserve the Science Museum logo it bears.

The Intruder Alarm similarly did not work.

I am in the process of returning all the items, so I can purchase alternative gifts.

The only item I will be keeping is the Strength Ball.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not an easy construction job, very fragile 9 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
My mother gave my son a very similar product for Christmas so this was the 2nd one I constructed in the last 2 weeks, so I had some experience. The motor is not problem. The cardboard body is glued together with double sided sticky tape, which is fiddly in the extreme. The pieces provided are far too big for alot of the flaps. It is very hard to align things exactly enough. We got to the end and the moment of truth was short lived as the thing fell apart and stopped. My son looked at it for about 30 seconds then wandered off to see what his brother was doing. Admitedly he is 7 and the toy recommends 8 and over, but I would not recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good idea let down by poor construction 26 Dec 2009
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
After a couple of interesting hours building the robot, was very dissapointed to discover that the way the gears were aligned meant the motor was unable to move them. The whole gear apparatus was jammed solid. No way of adjusting them to free up the motion, so we are left with a pile of gears...not good. May be down to a rogue batch, but not good all the same.
It should also be noted that the body of the robot is made from thin stiffened card, so not the most robust construction, not a surprise at this price, but worth being aware of.

Waste of money - really not worth of the Science Museum's name. It took absolutely ages to put together and then fell apart almost immediately.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Quality 1 April 2012
By GazzaP
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
My son really enjoyed building this and it worked well for about 10 minutes before it started to self destruct. The double sided tape provided to join all the card together simply isn't strong enough to do the job. I'm now going to have to spend some time with the glue gun to put it back togrther and hopefully it will be OK when I've done it. It's a shame that this is let down by some poor tape when my son was so proud of completing it and wanted to show it off to his friends and go on to build some more robots.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 30 Dec 2011
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
My son was given this for Christmas and he was excited about it. We constructed the motor part but it just doesn't work. So we now have plastic and card ready for landfill. We can't send it back as it was a present
DO NOT BUY THIS

1.0 out of 5 stars Fell apart on Christmas Day 29 Jan 2014

The house engineer put this together on day one and it is so flimsy and light-weight that it didn't last until Boxing Day!
