The Meccano- Meccanoid 2.0 is a great toy for kids and adults who still feel like kids. To begin with, the packaging is awesome. Who wouldn't want to buy this thing after just looking at the inviting packaging. Then you open it up and behold almost 500 parts before your eyes. For a grown-up who played with erector sets as a kid, this was awesome. Much cooler than just opening a box and shoving some batteries in... you've got to assemble this bad boy, which is part of the adventure. My son and I got to work. Following the instructions, we plugged the brain of the robot into our PC and downloaded the driver and appropriate language. There were a ton of different languages available so this toy can be customized pretty much no matter where you are from, which is cool. Then we got to work assembling. There are several different but similar plastic pieces, bolts of varying size, nuts of varying design, servo motors, wires, battery boxes, etc. Assembly took us approximately 4 hours, and we are pretty mechanically inclined. I could see it taking significantly longer if you are not. The instructions were reasonably easy to follow but there were several times we almost assembled it wrong, so you've got to take your time and not rush through it. There is only 1 way to assemble this correctly and a million ways to screw it up. The build was a great bonding time for my son and I. One we don't share when we buy a pre-built toy. When complete, we dropped some D batteries and finally got to play with the toy. Upon startup, it goes through a series of movements confirming it's arms up, moving to the right, etc. I assume this is because it would be easy to plug wires into the wrong spot and have the left arm raising when the right arm is supposed to. You have to interact and confirm with the robot that its working properly by pressing a yellow button when prompted. Once start up is complete, you can begin to play. The robot is voice activated and responds to over 3000 pre-programmed phrases. The stories it tells are pretty funny too. One improvement I would suggest is a slightly larger speaker. Unless you're in a quiet room, it can be difficult to hear. We then downloaded the Meccanoid app on our smart phones. This app allows you to teach it movement routines, program additional phrases, etc. Overall, we really enjoyed this toy. It was a great bonding time for my son and I to build the robot. The toy is built like a tank and is fun to play with. We'd highly recommend.

To be honest my daughter who's 19 and my who's 12 said its too many screws and you need tools to put it together. It is a great robot but the age group ranges from 10 on up I don't know about the age 10. It's still sitting on my dinner room table no put together yet.

    A good STEM project for older children

    By jmkleba

    from Yardley, PA

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    My boys were totally excited when they saw the box. They are into RC cars and drones and this robot kind of fits in the same category. Once they opened the box they became intimidated with the vagueness of the instructions and volume of parts. It actually put them off from wanting to even start. I waited a little bit and then encouraged them to give it another try. The initial software update wasn't automatically triggered when plugging in the usb cable. We had to download the software and manually perform the update. I work in IT so it was no problem but I could see some other folks finding it difficult. Once we got beyond that and my boys' initial urge to rush into it without carefully following the instructions things went better. It is slow going and we are not yet done with construction. It's an interesting project but it can be intimidating, it's more complex than Legos and it requires a good amount of focus.

    Good family time building and using

    By tbarney

    from Germantown, WI

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    My boys and I had a good time putting the Meccanoid together. It was a few days in the making, but well worth it. Usually the only electronic items the boys like are those that involve a video game system and the television. It was a nice change of pace to spend some quality time with them without needing to turn the TV on. Once it was built they were arguing over who would get to turn it on (typical that they would argue over something like that). Once it was fired up and calibrated they had a great time playing with it. They were impressed that it could understand it when they asked for a joke, to play a game, or to show them a dance. They got a kick out of how it responded. Overall, 5 stars for me. I could have gone about 4.5, but since only whole starts were available, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and rounded up. You should know that it will take you a few hours to build it. I don't know how you could put together almost 500 pieces much faster. If you are a believer in STEM learning for your kids, have them put this together. It isn't a huge challenge, but if they are around 10 years of age there might be some tricky parts for them. You will need a computer to update the firmware of the unit. The software to do the update will need to be downloaded from the web. It did a good job at understanding what was asked of it, as long as you were in front of it. On occasion it wouldn't understand or respond to what I asked for, but those cases were few and far between, and typically when I was behind the unit, or several feet away. I'll definitely look for other products from this vendor after seeing how my kids responded to this one.

    Lots of fun once it's built. Took longer than we thought to build so my son decided that I can build it on my own after about 20 mins. Once it was built it was tons of fun!! He also got some little meccano boys that all interact.

    Mecanno 2.0!

    By joeandamber208

    from Meridian, ID

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    This at first seemed overwhelming, so many pieces and the time it took to build. The best part was building it as a family, even better playing with it after as a family. The worst part, almost 500 pieces and i honestly feel that the company could have some of this assembled before packaging to save the consumer time. Also think instead of 4 D batteries, a micro USB charging system would be a better option than attaching4 big batteries that drain fast in the back. Technology is incredible on this little guy, the bluetooth app is very cool! With the app you are able to change light themes, control the movement of Mecanno, very fun!!! Anyone looking into buying this should expect sometime to assemble. This is a very advanced "Toy" and

    Fun project - father & child bonding time

    By txkent

    from Pflugerville, TX

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    Getting this robot put together was a challenge - because my 4 year old son REALLY wanted to help, but we had a lot of fun. Originally, my 13 year old son was going to head up the project, but I took over. The actual building part was easy - there are a lot of parts, so we sorted the nuts and bolts out in a divided container to speed in assembly. Everything was included in the kit except for the batteries, and it took us about 5 hours over a couple of days to assemble it. There were no flaws, just take the time to look at the diagrams on where the bolts go. The instructions were clear - much better than say, Ikea furniture. The functionality of the Meccanoid was impressive. My son had the robot telling jokes, moving around and dancing within minutes after we booted him up. Using the voice recognition system is easy - you just have to know what to say. Telling the robot to list its commands gives you what you can order it to do. I am an electronics hobbyist, and can honestly say that the electronic components were top-flight. The servos included are beefy and work well, and the controller is straight forward and easy to use. It did ask immediately upon first boot up to be updated, so be sure you have a computer with internet connection nearby. I highly recommend this kit for anybody with children who are interested in robotics, technology, or just like to have a fun advanced toy to play with. (Also, if you're a parent who likes to tinker and build things... that also helps.) A very nice kit, and an enjoyable time will be had by anybody who builds this either for their selves, or for a child.

    A bit too big for 10 year olds

    By skuatmraa

    from Green Bay, WI

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    I was sent this from BzzzAgent as a promotional product. I have two sons, one younger (13) and the older one (16) Honestly the younger one wouldn't have the patience to put this type of thing together. Too many steps and too much to do. (he is more of an action type of guy) The older one spent about 4 hours putting it together. And as you can see he got a bit tired and put it together a bit backwards. Easily fixed. It's a good toy, but don't just buy it for anybody. Make sure they enjoy construction.

    Awesome product

    By joakley404

    from Arkansas City, KS

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    The meccanoid was really fun to build, but took a while, so make sure you have a little time on your hands, it took me about 4 hours to get it completely built. The instructions are really well put together and helped a lot, just make sure to pay attention the colors of bolts.(I learned this the hard way) After building it and turning it on it tells you to download it's software, many times, and in many ways. It tells you exactly where to go and how to install it, which was nice. After updating the software the robot had a lot more commands. My favorite were the 'Tell me a story', 'Tell me a joke', and 'Gimmie five'. Then, I installed the app; it connects with your robot so you can control it's directions on your mobile device. Just make sure to use it on a flat surface, it doesn't run too well on carpet. All in all it was a fun toy, and will be played with a lot from the family.

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    We have been having incredible fun just building this robot for days. It's a fantastic hobby for father/son and really helps children pay attention to the details while enjoying the process of learning! Once he's up and running my son can't wait to interact. 12 boys were hovering around this little guy; all jealous that they didn't have one because "the word on the street" is that he can do your homework and it really powerful in his knowledge. My son is super excited and has enjoyed the entire process along the way. Way to go Spin Master for finding a quality educational and fun activity to bond over.

    A Robot You Can Dance With!

    By rowdyr8r

    from Suisun City, CA

    Comments about Spin Master 1001130 Meccano Robot Building Set 497 Pieces - Meccanoid 2.0:

    I had first intended this product to be for my younger son but I instantly went from thinking this would be an item my 12 year old would love to this would be an item my 17 year old would love. The amount of pieces and the instructions can seem overwhelming at first but my older son got so into this he completed in a couple 2 hour settings (yes, 4 hours to build). He had a blast building it, then we downloaded the software together and got the robot up and running. From holding hands and taking a walk to dancing with you mimicking your every move this robot is an absolute blast! The build would have been too complicated for my 12 year old (so not sure why it says 10 and up, although with a little help and patience from a parent it would be fine) but once it was built it was enjoyed by all ages (including dad!!!). All in all a very good product, have a little patience as once it's put together it is great family fun and entertainment.
