I was more than excited to take a look at this product after being invited by BzzAgent to provide an honest review.

The Meccanoid G15 Personal Robot is one of those unique products that can be fun and enjoyable for both younger kids AND adults. It makes for a great weekend project and it turned out that the Meccano "Build>Program>Play" experience created an unexpectedly nice bond with my kids. What's better than your kids genuinely expressing a desire to want to work TOGETHER to build and finish something? The kids found it rewarding to build something from the ground up and truth be told I think I had just a much fun!

There are 600+ pieces in the kit. When you open the box you might feel a bit overwhelmed (or maybe you'll feel a challenge!). It will be helpful to set expectations up front that this is not going to be a simple 1 hour project. We spent 1.5 days off and on a few hours at a time in order to avoid burn out and fatigue. Some of the work is a bit tedious as the screws and nuts are small. The age rating of 10+ is about right. Too much younger and it might be difficult even with adult help due to some of the complexity. It's somewhat more difficult than Legos but honestly a lot more fun with just a bit more of a challenge. It's a nice balance especially as a child+adult project. The great part is that you'll see quick incremental progress and that helps as you move along page by page. We kept the box propped up so we could see the evolution and watch the robot "come to life" as we followed the nicely detailed and colored 87 steps. I was impressed with the quality of the parts (hard, thick plastic). Once built there was definitely a sense of accomplishment. It was fun to hear "We did it Dad!"

The "build" celebration doesn't last long as OF COURSE you want the robot to come to life. Thankfully the wiring of the robot takes just a few quick minutes and in no time you are hearing and seeing the robot as it checks its systems and starts to interact with you.

I bought two Meccanoid G15 Robots, and ran out of special screws. Called their "support techs", one month ago, and explained that both packages were short on different screws. Very understanding support techs told me they would ship them to me within 2 to 3 working days. I called again, after a few days, and was told that it would be 4 to 5 working days. Called again and again after that, and my call went immediately to music. Yesterday, when I called, auto-answer message said that they would be closed to review their open cases, and will reopen at 8:00am (giving the date of the previous Monday). I now have two Robots, one is 2/3 complete, and the other is 1/2 complete. I don't have the right parts to finish either, unless take one completely apart. My kids are driving me crazy asking, "When will the screws come?"

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano MeccaNoid G15:

    I got this robot for my b-day and I love it it took me 4 days to build it because I hurt my finger but that did not stop me from building it . I worked on it any chance I got .i absolutely love this robot I want to by the bigger one to see how much different it is and how much more challengeing it may or may not be.it was not easy but it was not hard although do not take my option I have the building sckiles of a 16 year old and I am only 11 . It has a 30 minute battery life with slightly used batteries so I would say it has a 45-60 minute battery life. it was not missing any parts . If my parents were to say I could get another one I would attempt to ride my bike to toys r us to get it . Unfortunately that probably will not happen any time soon for I just finnished it on the 4so it is very new my friend who hates science and enjeneering and stuff like that now wants one . This robot was a extremely good learning experience . Out of ten 1 being poor 10 being one of the best I give it a 20 even though that is not proper math . Yes this was a gift . Yes I would absolutely recommend this to a friend

        Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano MeccaNoid G15:

        Started out very promising. My son really wanted this toy and we were happy to get it. Building is an endeavor to say the least, but was expected. The problem is playing with the finished product. Battery life is nonexistent. In our case, the thing would stay on for 30-60 seconds (not minutes, seconds) before giving the low-power message and shutting off. Tried changing batteries, updating software on Meccano's website (a whole other issue there), etc. Nothing has worked. I'm now trying to return this product, and that process in itself is fraught with issues. Spare yourself the trouble and stay away from this toy. I would give 0 or negative stars if possible.

          The product is as advertised. My son and i were able to get it done in about 4 hours. I ended up building a rechargeable battery pack for it because it ate through the C cells in a couple of hours. The instructions were decent but it is a little hard to figure out some of the assembly due to the pictures.

          It's fun but it needs to have some more functionality. I am going to look into the programming side and see if how difficult it will be to customize.

          For the price it's fun!

            This was ordered as a gift my son's 8th birthday. He is very creative and mechanically inclined so it was right up his alley. That said it did take us quite a while to build this, about 5 hours. For some reason I couldn't get his right arm on correctly and it kept moving backward instead of forward. I think the instructions could have been a little clearer on that end. Other than that everything was fine and this toy has gone everywhere with us since December 26. My son LOVES it! I definitely recommend buying rechargeable batteries. The regular lasted us all of one day.
