How did you fix the goof?
Comments about Product:
Since you sent these to the wrong address (my address) and they are probably still being held for me at the Post office in Rockledge rather than at my daughter's home in Sanbornville N.H., how can I review them? I am still in Mexico, and will not return until the 2nd week of December, at which time I shall have to scramble to get the two robots to their intended destination for Christmas. Yes, you goofed, but how have you fixed the goof?

Awesome toy for a clever child to build!
Comments about Product:
My son really enjoyed putting this together and watching it stroll across the kitchen table. We love how it was just enough of a challenge to put it together.

pretty fun
Comments about Product:
I gave it to my husband for him and my 6 yr old boy to have a project together, it was as expected: fun anticipation, everything included except the can, easy instructions, when finished, it worked and made them laugh.
By mom of 3 boys
fun gift
Comments about Product:
This was a gift to my engineer husband for his birthday with the intent that he could put it together with our 8-yr old son. They had fun putting it together and its fun to watch when its running. Its not appropriate for under 5 or 6 to play with depending on your child - somewhat delicate.

Comments about Product:
My 10 year old grandson likes action toys. This was perfect for him. The arms are awkward, but other than that he liked it.
