Product Description:

While robot kits are very entertaining and educational, they can be expensive. This kit is considerate in this regard, as it recycles its parts for up to 14 robots. Your kids can learn about solar power as an alternative energy source while putting together and playing with such creatures as Turtle-bot, Beetle-bot, Quadru-bot, and more. There are also two levels of complexity for the robots, some being simpler to put together, and some more challenging. Instructions are included for all 14 variations.

Publisher Description:

Every hour more solar energy reaches the Earth than humans use in an entire year. Solar panels, or photovoltaic panels, convert the sun's energy into usable electricity. Solar Power is one of the alternative energies used most widely across the globe. Your Solarbot.14 kit contains unique components & parts to construct robots that operate on land and water. Construct 14 different solar powered robots from functional to comical designs. After assembling a model, the user can easily reassemble components into different models. These robots are powered by direct sunlight.

My older daughter loves robotics, and is a huge fan of Wall-E. This guy looks a lot like Wall-E, and I love that she can make a few different robot designs with one kit.

My grandson wanted a robot kit for Christmas. I liked the fact that this kit offered a variety of robots to build and was challenging for 10 year olds and up. My grandson is 11 years old and enjoys creative toys.

Does this have a remote control?
A shopper on Dec 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. Once it's charged up by the sun the robot starts moving. Pretty cool!
Do these solar panels store the energy or do you have to constantly have to have the sun (light) on it?
User on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is no battery pack, so it doesn't store the energy. The solar panel is on a swivel mount, so you can adjust its direction and angle. Whatever you build, it only runs, moves, waddles, or trots forward when it is in direct sunlight. We live in CO so direct sunlight is abundant; where we used to live, in OH, was much cloudier so it might've required a high powered flashlight or spotlight to make it move forward. Overall, this has been a very good purchase and we've built 4-5 of the robots.

A great challenge for your young engineer
My 7 year old son loves engineering project. I would recommend this product if your child likes little details and can concentrate for long periods of time. My son loves advanced Legos and this was a good step-up challenge for him. I like that it's not just a one-time use project, but that there are 14 things to create. The only downside is the plastic quality isn't awesome. The pieces are hard to fit together at times and doesn't operate smoothly at times.

I purchased this kit for my 7 year old son He became interested in robots after watching the Disney movie Wall-E and we thought this would be a good kit to begin with The instructions for each design begin with showing you which pieces are required then with step-by-step picture instructions it shows you how to assemble the parts The solar panel requires direct sunlight or a 50 watt halogen light bulb to receive enough power to run the robots Some of the pieces are very small so fine motor skills are a must We really enjoyed building the robots together and watching them move
