          Comments about RadioShack Radio-Controlled Robot Kit:

          My son is having fun with it. Will certainly help him understand how to control the robot. Putting the robot together needs some dedicated time and patience. Also the battery of the robot is located inside the bot, which will be a challenge replacing when batteries drain.

          But over all it was worth it. My son has named it as "Animal Robot"

            Comments about RadioShack Radio-Controlled Robot Kit:

            Well, putting the robot together was challenging. The wires have to be properly guided. I would say the Putting the switch was the hard part. But that was fun. Definitely takes time.

            The major design flaw is the battery location for the motors. They are in side the robot. So next time the battery drains you have to go through the same process of putting all the robot together.

              Comments about RadioShack Radio-Controlled Robot Kit:

              I admit this robot was difficult t assemble, particularly because the diagrams do not include the wires. Assembly was frustrating but not TOO bad. I would not buy this if you are not VERY mechanically inclined. 8-year-old? I don't think so, unless he's a mechanical genius.

                Comments about RadioShack Radio-Controlled Robot Kit:

                It says that it is for 8 and up but first my very electronics oriented 12 son tried unsuccessfully to put it together, then I tried. It was difficult to assemble, diagrams do not include where to run the wires so you make your best guess. Apparently I guessed right and finally got it together then it stopped working within an hour of play! Unbelievable!

                      This is horrible! Non-quality, easy to break and you have to put pressure on it to make the pieces go together and thats how i broke mine. I'd give it 0 stars if i could.
