Young Scientists Club Sunny the Robot

(Young Scientists Club $29.99)

 

Sunny the Robot is a light controlled “bug-like” creature that has to be assembled before it can be activated. It comes with clear step by step directions and there is also a video online for those that find they need more of a demo. That said, it does have a lot of wires that require fine motor skills as they are twisted together and connected to the springs. The motor needs to be placed with care to connect with the swivel rod that makes the wheels spin. The whole idea here is a hands-on building experiment that can be very exciting, since the end-product will actually work! Some adult help may be needed and you will need a small Philips screwdriver. Our tester was thrilled with this one, but another tester had trouble getting the Metali, the metal detector. There are several other robots in the collection. Sunny the Robot is the one we tested successfully. Marked 8-12, we'd say the upper range will be able to do this best.
