Requires a lot of assistance but great fun
on 6 February 2012
I purchased this for my nephew's 6th birthday. The suggested age is 8+ however my nephew is advanced for his age and lit up as soon as he saw the box.
Putting it together was a different story; I can't see any 8 year old managing to do it alone. There are a lot of different pieces, and you need to follow the instructions carefully. My nephew basically watched his uncle put it together. He was very excited as he saw robot progress in build.
Once put together this robot is fantastic, my nephew is so excited to come back from school and play with it, he feels an extra sense of achievement as he helped put it together.
All in all, I would say an older child who could put it together may become bored easily. Whereas a younger child, who requires the help of an adult may be more fascinated.
