Comments about Innovation First Inc VEX® Robotics Screw Lift Ball Machine™:

Grandson ( 4) loves the end result. Plays with it every day for the last week. He and brother loved helping with assembly. It took more than 5 hours to assemble! 170 small parts -grandpa missed that part.

    My son enjoyed building this Screw Lift.

        Bought this for my 10 year old grandson, and he loved it. Will definitely be purchasing more of the vex robotics for him. Great way to expand his creative, engineering brain of his.

        Comments about Innovation First Inc VEX® Robotics Screw Lift Ball Machine™:

        My son loved building this. My advice, though, don't build in an area with a dark colored carpet. Almost all the pieces are black and of course he dropped one, and it took forever to find it again!
