This is a great book and comes with parts to make a moving robot.
Geraldine G Hall
This book is for older children that can follow difficult directions and be able to build complicated things.

My ten year old son is all about robots right now, so he was excited to give this book a try. Its basically a craft book that provides you with some cute accessories and teaches you how to create your own robots using many every day household items that would otherwise wind up in a landfill. I love the premise of his idea. As a green mom, I am always looking for ways to recycle. I also love the idea of encouraging my kids to use their imagination. Creating the robots was a fun task in itself and playing with them after was tons of fun. The book gives you all the accessories you need including googly eyes, wooden beads, and punch out templates. You just need to provide the boxes, cup, paper towel rolls etc. It even comes with a battery powered motor and windup walkers so you can make your robots move. We really loved the book and the activities it provided. The only down side is that the robots don't look quite as nice as the ones in the book. Of course, this is pretty much always the case with crafts if you aren't a professional. My son, who is ten, also got a little frustrated with some of the steps. He wasn't able to complete most of the robots without assistance. My husband, who is much better in the craft department than I am, had to help him complete them. Still, a great craft book and one geared toward boys, which is hard to find. In addition to the crafts, there were also some photos and information about real robots, and my son really enjoyed that part as well.

There was more to this book/kit than expected. Even though it says 10 robots projects, there are so many other robots you can build by adding your own personal touches. The book/kit includes some great designs and pre-printed materials that made our first robot easy to construct. This kit is a great introduction to robot building for kids. The book also includes some pages about Robots In Our World, which include descriptions and categories of a variety of robots. All in all, this book/kit seems to be great educational and fun learning experience!

I got this for my 16-year-old son for Christmas, and he loves it. It was the present he kept going back to look at while he was waiting for his turn to open another one. For an older user like him, it's pretty quick and simple to follow the directions, but he's also gone beyond what's in the book to make his own creations. The parts aren't going to last long if they are played with hard, but they work great with gentle use.

We ordered this twice, from Amazon sellers (not Amazon directly). Both times, from two different sellers, it was shipped in a bag and arrived crushed. This is why we will only order directly from Amazon from now on!! Grrrr.

That being said, my 9 year old enjoyed the kit and has been using it for the past week, making robots from recycling materials. I like that she can find most of what she needs easily from our recycling bin, and she is able to follow the directions on her own, although we have had fun doing the projects with her as well.

I got this book from my nephew for Christmas because he loves to make things. This book is for older children that can follow difficult directions and be able to build complicated things. What I love is the book comes with some of the pieces that you will need for a robot already, so all you have to do is find other household items to finish your robot. A really great book. I would recommend it.

Bought this as a gift for my nephew. He's 9. He loves Robots. He loves figuring out how things work. Based on the Instagram videos I've already seen of his recycled robot creations, this is likely a jumping off point for his endless creativity. He's continually scouring the house for stuff to make into new and better robots. The little motors that come with this book actually work. He's a happy little inventor. My sister is thrilled he's found an activity that will keep him entertained and that she's not the one doing all the work. I have a five-year-old and intend to tuck away another copy of the book/kit for when he gets just a little bit older.
