Overall, it was fun for my kids to put together. It takes a little parental support for some of the details. The wire connections are done by pulling the wires into a spring coil. I had to use a small knife to push them in there. The area is too small for fat fingers.
we took the puppy to the back porch and watched the motor run, the tail spin, and the whole toy jump and vibrate around until it hits a shadow. With about half of the panel in a shadow it had enough power to spin the tail but not enough to keep moving around.
'i purchased this kit from amazon.com (owi robot kits) marketed as owi but i believe it is using your name but not sold by you. would you be able to confirm that?
owihelp: Yes, what kit are you talking about?
'specifically it is the 6 in 1 solar kit
'your sku on the website is owi-msk610
owihelp: Yes it is. There are a few things you can do to confirm whether its a knockoff or not.
owihelp: On the back of the box does it say where its made?
'made in china
'this is the weblink for the kit on amazon:
owihelp: If the box says 'made in china' it is a knockoff. All of our products are made in Taiwan.
'can you view that link i sent you? they are marketing it as your product. i saw your product at an educational supply store and thought that was what i was buying. thanks for your help.
owihelp: Yes, I've seen them before. We are currently talking to Amazon trying to get these kits off their website.
owihelp: Thank you for the heads up though.
I do NOT recommend this product.
I ordered 3 kits one for each child and one for me. 3rd was used as spare parts for 1 & 2.
Injection molding tools are well past their prime. There is flash on many of the parts ( plastic at the parting line : or face between the 2 halves of the injection molding tool. Also parts are oversized with the holes being undersized ( another sign of tool wear). the result is pins don't want to fit into holes.
for the non engineer - the wheel shaft for the car binds so the wheels won't turn.
- One of the solar panels came with the contact spring broken off ( a bad soldering job). On all 3 kits I had to remove one of the solar panel springs and move it 2mm outboard so that it would align with the plastic case. If you don't own a soldering iron you won't be able to assemble solar panel into frame.
After considerable engineering rework I got the car, dog and plane together. Car won't drive because rear wheels bind, and front wheels which go on gearbox hub don't fit well ( hub is over sized) . Dog tail won't stay on rotating shaft hub ( same issue as wheels). Plane does go round ( you need a penny for counter balance.) but only when sun is almost overhead. ( May in Michigan).
at $5 cheap price so I got what I paid for - low quality parts.
Only good side, over an hour of daddy daughter time trying to put them together.

It's ok to get as a teaching project for your kids, but don't expect them to be able to actually 'play' with any of the projects once complete.Read more
