Frustrating directions and I'd question the age gradingDec 30, 2010
My son got this for his 8th birthday and was excited about it. The age grade says 7+ and this seems generous as the sparse directions and finicky assembly would drive 10 year old batty. First, the instructions. Each step is illustrated in a 3/4 drawing with a bare minimum of clues as to how to build it. The view is always the same, never a nice detailed shot rotated to best illustrate the step -which is critical with the nature of the K'nex pieces and their unique attachments.
My son got frustrated at Step 1 and after I asked him to try again, I sat down and worked on the kit with him. I don't mind building the kits together, in fact I like it a lot, the issue I have is that I'm guessing the chances of him building anything else with the kit, like he would with a Lego kit, is small. Speaking of small, these pieces are smaller than the other K'nex set he has (I think it was a Happy meal toy).
The saving grace for the set is that it has a few parts that can accommodate Lego pieces, this combined with the Lego block I super glued to the battery housing should extend the life of the toy, keeping it out of the bottom of the toy box for now. Right now the robot is walking past with 8 Lego Star Wars Mini Figs attached to it :)

too flimsy - would give zeo stars if it were an optionNov 12, 2011
don't waste your time or money...the leg supports aren't strong enough to hold it together once you turn the motor on...barely stay together even when it's not running...desperately needs to be redesigned...epic fail!!!

Fun to build, not much to play with.May 23, 2012
My 8year old son received this for his birthday and we immediately started construction. The pieces are very small and a bit difficult to put together but as the sides were symetrical I was able to construct the stage as per the instruction booklet and he copied that. Once it was all together and we turned it on, we were in fits of laughter at the mechanical movement of the robot, but all it does is "walk" forwards and backwards. If it's put together properly it is very sturdy but it's not much to play with and is just sitting on the shelf now collecting dust.
My almost 5 yr old enjoy itFeb 28, 2013

My son loves blocks, puzzle etc....and Wall-E. I ordered this one also because I thought it looks similar to Wall-E. Surely my son agrees. He couldn't wait to put the pieces together and went to sleep with the robot. The next day I helped him change the moving mechanics into wheels using Knex parts from our collection. He loves it even more. My 7 yr old daugther wants me to make Eva...Wall-E friend. The motor is good. I wish the other Knex box (800 pieces box) I ordered had the same motor as this one but that motor is much slower. the price is also great. I want to order another robot for him.
Christmas gift for 7 yr. old grandsonNov 24, 2014
The package arrived well packed. It appears to be very light and smaller than expected. It is a gift for my 7 year old grandson who loves Legos , so I thought this would be a different version of building projects. I know he will love building a robot but I hope it will not be too flimsy. Will be glad to send feedback after Christmas. I ordered the same for another 7 yr. old grandson. Hope they are both happy.
