Great to gift – 3-in-1 Transforming Solar Robot DIY Toy Assembly Kit Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Kids love it. They see the robot and think it's soooo cool. It is solar powered so no batteries to buy and replace. I think that's a huge plus as I've been trying to teach the kids about reducing waste. Did I mention that it looks frickn' awesome. It made a great gift, both of them were a success.
Cons:
If you are going to give one as a gift to some one else's kids make sure that they are not a very good friend because they wont be talking to you for quite some time. It took me quite a bit of time to put the thing together. The instructions were easy enough but crap that was a lot of parts to clean up the burs left from the molding process. The solar panel is a little bit too small. It needs a lot of light.
Other:
I saw one that looked identical in the pictures from domestic sites promoting educational & DIY toys for over $30. The only difference I could see was the box was English, French & Spanish.
Bottomline:
If you are willing to fiddle around cleaning up all the burs and put it together then get one.
