If your child is always doing the robot walk around the house, give them some more constructive entertainment with this fascinating robot arm kit. A must have toy for any gadget enthusiasts, they can learn the basics of electrical connections whilst building their very own robot for hours of fun.
Once constructed and all wired up, experiment with the controller to see what this robot arm is capable of. The remote allows you to open and close the gripper, to pick objects up from the table or desk and move them to another place. You can also control the wrist, shoulder, elbow and base rotation to move like a real arm. It’s the equivalent of a robot Frankenstein, and is a great addition to the toy box.
With five separate movements and the chance to develop an interest in science, mechanics and electrics, this makes a great birthday present for boys.Suitable for ages 12+, perhaps some of the knowledge might rub off in their lessons! You can always hope. In any case, it’s a fantastic project to keep them busy on rainy days and encourage them away from their computers, with an educational edge that makes it a worthy investment.
