Finding it tricky to buy something that will entertain your teenagers or even yourself? Think Gizmos have the solution! The Musical Robot Kit is the ideal puzzle to keep you busy for hours.
What is it? The Musical Robot Kit is a wooden construction kit that is made up of 221 pieces and provides a challenge for anyone over 12. The pieces are laser cut ensuring that the robot fits together nicely and are designed to last. In addition to this, the wood used for this is eco-friendly as it is untreated natural plywood without dye or varnish. What makes the robot so cool in comparison to other wooden construction kits is that the robot can actually move its arms and legs! What I most love about the robot is that it plays music and has a light shining through its heart, making it come to life. Once you have wound it up, the robot will start playing a song and you can see the cogs moving through the robot’s see-through head! I wonder if you can work out what this song is that its playing?
What’s included? The kit includes everything you need to build the robot from the pre-cut wooden sheets to the little screwdriver. The best thing is that batteries are included so no need to worry about those!
Personal Review of the robot: The Musical Robot Kit was one of my favourite construction kits to build. With so many pieces and intricate details to the product, it kept me busy for many hours and provided me with a fun project to complete without a screen being needed (a rarity in these times!)
Where can I buy this? This product is available in all the usual places such as Amazon and Ebay. It can also be found on Onbuy and can be purchased from the Think Gizmos website at a cost of £29.95 with free delivery.
