Robotic Arm Edge - It's got an edge on many other robot kits!
There are many reasons to find intrigue with this Elenco robotics kit.
1. The range of robotic motion is extensive.
2. The total command you have of this toy robot is substantial.
3. The reward for completing your Robotic Arm includes fully-fascinating, fully-functioning play.
Here's a peek at what you will be able to do with your Robotic Arm Edge:
Command the gripper to open & close
Turn wrist motion 120 degrees
Flex extensive elbow range 300 degrees
Rotate Base 270 degrees
Move Base 180 degrees
Vertically reach 15 inches
Horizontally reach 12.6 inches
Lift 100 grams
The Robotic Arm Edge also includes:
Search light design on gripper
Safety gear audible indicator included on all 5 gear boxes
(Prevents any potential injury or gear breakage during operation)
Total command and visual manipulation using the 5s
(Five-switch wired-controller, five motors, and five joints)
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 10 years of age.

Way too difficult to assemble as a Christmas gift. I didn't notice it was "not assembled" or I would NEVER have bought it. Buy this gift if you have days and weeks of nothing to fill your time and are very handy with tools and manipulation of small parts. This would be a great project for an advanced high school or college level Physics, Electronics or Robotics class - DO NOT buy as a child's toy!
We gave this toy to my 10 year old nephew who is really into robotics. He was so excited when he unwrapped it and wanted to get started on it right away. It took him about two and a half hours to assemble it with on and off help from an adult. It was kind of intense... some of the directions were somewhat vague and could be more kid friendly. The pieces that had to be assembled snapped out of the little frames easily and were somewhat easy for him to identify from the pictures. It would have been helpful if the smaller hardware (such as the screws) had been more clearly labeled. This toy did require a great deal of fine motor skills and patience. After he got it all put together and had it working, he was pumped and called us to let us know!

My son was so excited to get this toy. It would have been very challenging for a child to assemble this them self. It was a little time consuming with adult help. It works very well and the control panel is neat. My son really enjoyed seeing the mechanisms and how the parts fit together.

We purchased these kits for use in our Robotics Camps. Our adult interns say they are easy to assemble. The robot arms are holding up well with camp use and are simple enough for the youngest campers to use. I find this product a good toy robot arm with the motions and functionality of the real thing. (Another kit that looked more substantial and that we thought would be better doesn't even have the strength to hold up the weight of its own arm!)
The light is a neat feature, but is unnecessary and an unnecessary drain on the battery power. At least the light has an on/off switch. Kids usually think that switch turns the robot arm on and off, but it only controls the light. The robot arm itself has no on/off switch, but only uses power when you run the motors to move the arm.
