Solar coolness

4

I bought this 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit as a present for younger brother. It's good for kids that are into building and learning about these kind of things. It features a robust design, is easy to build and the multiple designs keep the interest high. The downsides are that it needs a lot of power - solar panels are not the best but it doesn't ruin it, the box it came in could have been better quality but to be honest it's an eco friendly based play thing so I can't complain that much. Overall this is a very good toy and a nice learning tool for youngsters. It doesn't cost the earth either (see what I did there).

6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit

With most 'toys' bought as Christmas presents you require shares in Duracell to keep them going, with this solar robot that isn't the case - mostly. This fantastic little robot kit transforms into 6 creations from a dog to a speedboat. The kit is easy to assemble and easy to change between the models meaning it can keep even the youngest of children entertained as well as all those older kids who love a bit of geek. The green and white plastic casing is hard-wearing and durable so is sure to last. The only negative is the solar panel is quite small and weak. We don't get much sunshine in the middle of December as it is so it can take a while to get enough charge to see this little kit come to life, especially as it's England and we are normally cloudy as hell too but when it does get enough charge it sure is worth it!

What to get the man who has everything? How about a robot? The 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit is pretty awesome, great as a desktop toy, great fun and great for the aspiring robotics engineer (or kids ages 6 and up). Plus it's powered by the sun, so you're saving the world too. Go team.

Looks good...

The 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit looks good but it's not actually that great. The main issue is that the solar panel is really weak. Daylight doesn't seem to power it at all, and under electric light I had to hold the panel about 2 inches away from the bulb to get the motor to work. It's fine if all you want is to build it and then leave it on a shelf untouched like most grown-up/executive toys.

The 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit is ok but it's a bit more basic than the images suggest. I ordered two as gifts. Overall it's ok for the price.

The 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit was most definitely worth the money. However it didn't keep us busy for that long.

solar future

I bought three 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kits: one for each of my grandchildren. Now they can see and feel what solar power can do for them. I hope that the sun will be present too!

A nice little toy

The 6 in 1 Solar Robot Kit is a set of six different gadgets that you can make which seems like a great little gift where hours of fun could be had. All of the individual pieces were laid out like pieces of flat pack furniture kit, not even the solar panel has been put together for you. A few minutes in you realise that the initial build is something of a challenge but from that point on it's just a matter of switching around the plastic connectors. As I wasn't buying it as a 'build from scratch' gift, this was a nice surprise. The 6 toys themselves vary greatly in how interesting they are to watch, some are fantastic and well worth making. Others fail to hold your attention for more than a few seconds and might as well not have been included. At the moment, its use has been limited to being under a 60 watt bulb, only time will tell how amusing it is outside in the sun. I'm looking forward to seeing the car driving around when not limited by a stationary light source. Would recommend as a present for that person you really don't know what else to get.

I bought this as a gift for my brother-in-law and he loves it! Lots of little bits, but it comes with good instructions, so he's looking forward to getting building! Definitely recommended.
