    Information about Building Bots Book
    Posted 12/27/2012 by Rosemary Jaret

    My 10 year old son played with this toy and engaged his 16 year old brother as it was so interesting to him. The lego sets he received on Christmas morning remained unopened! He really enjoyed this set and we both decided this would be a good birthday present for several of his friends this year.
