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.
While I have a feeling this product is going to be amazing, we may never know. The assembly is not progressing past step one, because the pieces keep falling out of where they are supposed to be.. Do not buy this if you are expecting a child to put it together. It would be helpful if you had someone with experience building motors/electronics to assemble this for you. Disappointed.
There's nothing mechanical about the way we react to concerns. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center when it all falls apart. Piece by peace, we'll make things right. We contacted our customer promptly
Review of Robotic Arm - Edge

I purchased one of these for my grandson. I am 78. He is 11. He is far away and I am not getting good reports. I purchased this one for me. I put it together which was reasonably difficult as a result of similar but different parts and marginal drawings. As yet I have not connected it to the computer. I do not play with it often. I am going to try to answer his questions by phone if he ever gets started.
If the Robotic Arm doesn't grab you, visit the Returns & Exchanges Center. We put muscle into providing excellent customer care. We assisted our customer promptly.
This was a birthday gift for my grandson who is "into" this kind of stuff.
Although it was difficult to assemble (by grandpa) once it was put together he played with it a lot over the two days he stayed with us.
Exp[lained several times how much he liked this item and thanked grandpa because he was pretty sure he would not have been able to do it.

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!
