Review:

The Magformers Hi-Tech Walking Robot set includes everything required to build one of eight motorized, walking robots: one engine block, one walking block, one battery pack, four isosceles triangles, two right angle isosceles triangles, eleven squares, four trapezoids, eight rectangles, six semi-circles, two half-arches, two ninety-degree auto connectors, two arm connectors, one insert, and detailed step-by-step instructions (3 AAA batteries are required). Once completed, the robot walks and spins its head and arms. Although the instructions demonstrate eight models, the possibilities are many; the set offers hours of open-ended creative and imaginative play. Constructing the various robots addresses sequencing, spatial awareness, spatial planning, and fine motor skills. The set is also compatible with all Magformers shapes and accessories, which adds to the product's play and learning values.
