I received this Meccano as part of a BzzAgent kit for my sons ages 14, 11 & 10. My sons and their father spent a few hours every weekend for the last few weeks and a few minutes here and there before bed to finish this project up. There are a thousand parts total and while my kids love putting things together with dad this was one of the most complex projects they have ever worked on. The bolts and screws are not easy to work on at times and some of the instructions were not correct. We did use the video instructions and even that didn't always help. My husband had to go off on his own a couple of times because the screws weren't long enough to secure a piece together and later a couple of nuts and bolts had come off from the robot moving around and shaking it loose. With all of that once you get the robot together it is totally awesome! The whole family has had fun watching Meccano do his thing. He makes jokes, he walks, he does Kung Fu, he dances, he can take walks with you, and he can be be custom programmed to do any moves you want. Our 14 year old has been teaching the robot to pet the cat, which he successfully did too! We've connected the robot to our android phones through the app you can download and you can really get him to move with that it is really cool. I can see the boys playing with him for a long time to come and a great alternative to video games!

We were so excited to be chosen for the Bzzagent campaign and get the Meccanoid G15 KS Personal Robot for Free, especially when I see the price tag is well over $300. So it is not something we would have bought on our own.
It was going to be a father/son project since I have two boys ages 10 and 7. Well in reality it turned into a Daddy only projuect, Keep in mind building this guy takes a long time, and too much for kids 10 and younger in my opinion. I did the bulk of the work, with kids helping in the beginning and in end stages. Honestly it took much longer then planned, the Robot project took over our basement with a table with parts all over it for at least 2 weeks. I tried to get to it every day but like most with a busy schedule it didn't always happen. The Biggest Con in my opinion besides the amount of time it took to build are the Instructions, they weren't very good and not labeled properly, everything needs to be labeled better. When robot was finished thankfully my ten year old discovered I put on the "Feet" backwards!

Definitely not a project to do with kids around who are distracting you. It was like having a 2nd job

In the end the kids love it. They love talking to the robot and having him follow commands and walk with them and dance. They are having lots of fun with him. But for the cost and time it took I think it would not be something I would purchase. Needs to be more kid friendly build and smaller price tag. But we are appreciated to Bzzagent and Meccano, we are hoping this is a toy that will last and boys can enjoy the time and effort that it took to build and have a timeless toy, but only time will tell. But for price point I dont think I would recommend it, unfortunately I know how my kids are and will probably get bored sooner then later and poor Meganod will be sitting in basement corner collecting dust.

Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano MeccaNoid G15 KS:

I found the manual very confusing, maybe numbers on the parts would have helped. I am still having problems wiring up the arms, keeps telling they are incomplete.... after 4 hours of trying every which way I am now taking a break from it. All in All I think this is a good product however, it does need some tweaking, eg.... Recharge battery should not have to be removed to recharge, should be able to plug it in from the robot. The ends on the wiring are really poor quality, these should be replace with more stable clip in such as the ones you may find on your mobile phones or like the plug into the wall socket for a landline....

    There were maybe 2 things that were not explained properly in the instructions but I was able to get help from an outside source. My son absolutely loves Meccanoid. He's entertaining for even adults as well.

          assembly process is way to long, should be pre-assembled with locked in wiring, directions are awful. The robot does not hear well or follow commands well. So far not worth the money or time vested into product. A complete let down

                This is a great product if you can spend the time to guide your child through the process. It can be a great sharing experience, and is quite a comprehensive robotics system for a young person- but, its fullest potential is really achieved when there is parental involvement. Overall- has been a lot of fun so far!
