Kids don't play with it. Pieces don't stay together. Almost impossible for kids to assembly according to instructions .

My son loves playing with this. Since I helped him make the suggested robots, he has already used the pieces loads to make lots of weird and imaginative machines and robots. I was afraid he would be disappointed with the toy because its not an electronic robot (he had asked Santa for a robot) but it couldn't be further from the case. I am really pleased to see him independently making his own creations which is a step he has not made with Lego.

Great colours, great build ideas. Our son was able to build the designs despite the fact that the instructions were too small and difficult to make out. On top of that, after minutes of play, some pieces didn't fit well, which means that the models break down often.

Missing pieces

Dahonlee01 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This set did not have the correct number of parts so when the robot was built, improvising with what was available made it so that it didn’t move like it was supposed to. The plastic pieces also fall apart easily. There are no pulleys just gears that barely work together. Nice concept but doesn’t deliver.

Plastic seems junky, but my 5 year old loves it and the parts hold together well. Robot are pretty big once made. A set with smaller/more pieces would be awesome.

A Robot For All Imaginations

The Fruit Family - 3 years ago

Dotty really enjoyed creating robots from her imagination. She also loved being able to follow instructions like daddy does when building and putting all her pieces in piles for following the instructions step by step. Some pieces where hard to connect at the beginning but after a few creations they became easier to connect. The product comes in a handy storage box. All parts are nicely coloured to create out of this world robots and creatures.

Build quality is mostly adequate, but 1 of the joint types falls apart often meaning the robots don't articulate like they should. Also only 3 designs included and no more are on the website.

Parent of two dinosaur lovers! - 3 years ago

An excellent gift for any Robot/Designing enthusiast! Our six year old son, navigated the extremely clear instructions with ease and encouraged adult interaction to ensure he was putting the pieces together (His father was itching to get involved!). He had so much fun taking all the pieces out of the box and matching them to the instructions. Firstly, he built the tall robot which took between 10-15 minutes to piece it all together and was thrilled at the success when the Gears Robot was up and running! We quickly learnt that this particular robot preferred soft surfaces such as carpets instead of wooden flooring. The other two styles worked excellently on the wooden floor. As time has progressed this Robot has been reassembled into many different forms, at time's following the instructions but also using his imagination to create his own versions! This Gears Robot has really given him the confidence to attempt, practise and create! The parts are easy to connect, with the robot also suiting our near three year old. Bare in mind that very occasionally if things aren't lined up straight, he may topple over - but that's all part of the fun!

My 6 year old boy loves this product he spends time putting robots together and then pulling them apart, he really enjoys how the cogs work and giving the robot big yellow eyes. This product really encourages fine motor skills in young children, getting them to think about how things work together.

Gears and Robots.. What more could you want!

Mum to two boys - 4 years ago
originally posted on http://www.learningresources.co.uk
I ordered this to play with my two boys, who are 3 and 5 years old. Both boys have a range of different construction toys and are always building things together, so when I saw this set, I was automatically drawn to it. This is the first construction toy we have used that is made nearly completely from gears, and I was so surprised at how easy it was to assemble and how simple the instructions were for my 5 year old to follow. After building 2 different robots, my youngest decided he would like a flying car, and together they were soon building all sorts of fantastic creatures and vehicles! The colourful gears push together and interlock easily, and seem very sturdy so even my 3 year old can easily use it. I am very impressed with the learning capability of this set and it definitely seems to be keeping my aspiring young engineers very busy and interested. This Robots in Motion set comes with 116 pieces, so has plenty of scope for young imaginations, but is fully compatible with all of the Learning Resources Gears range if you want to add to it, which we will definitely be doing! As a parent, I also like the fact that the box is very sturdy and the pieces all store back into it easily. My children have really enjoyed playing with this set over the last few days, and I even caught my husband secretly building them a robot last night! My only negative about this set is that it only comes with the instructions for 3 robots inside the box. Learning Resources have obviously thought this through, and have kindly put instructions for other robots on their website, but personally, I think my son would of preferred to of had them inside the box with the others so he could of started building them straight away. Other than that, I would very highly recommend!

Last year we were gifted a lovely gears set for my sons birthday. He spent hours creating and building different configurations. So when I saw this one I knew he would love it. Stand alone there are a few different robots to make. But can also be combined with other sets to make even more creations. This gears set didn't disappoint. My now 7 year old couldn't wait for it to arrive. He spent every night after school for a week putting the different robots together. Would highly recommend this toy for anyone who loves construction or robots!
