    Crawling Robot. Nice quality product. A real challenge to assemble. Good example of mechanics.

    Our grandson, age 8, was able to independently assemble the robot. The screwdriver was too small so he used the one in his sister’s eureka kit. He prefers the architectural sheet of directions over having them in a booklet. The robot worked well and entertained he family.
