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.

This was very challenging to put together for both an adult and child---but that made it somewhat fun!! It was SOOOOO disappointing after 2 days and probably 5-6hours of work putting it together that it didn't work. One of the motors for the foot had seized and it stopped the robot from functioning completely after running its diagnostic. After calling the company, SpinMasters for days over the holidays to get a replacement (as that is what the note inside the box said to do) we finally got a hold of a C/S agent who said they could do anything and we needed to fill out a form online---we did it and then got an email 2 days later saying "Thanks and it will be 6-8 weeks for delivery"---Talk about bad service and a Christmas gift that was very disappointing after alot of initial excitement

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

    I bought this robot as a Daddy/Daughter project for our 9 year old daughter who wants to be a Mechanical Engineer when she grows up. She loves building things with her dad and this robot was no exception. They put it together in a couple days which would have taken less time if my husband did it himself. They had no problems as the instructions were easy to follow and it came with everything you need including tools. Our daughter has only had the robot put together for a few hours but she is absolutely loving it! It knows a lot of commands and you can "teach" it other commands. Great buy for sure!

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

      Robot was given to my daughter for Christmas. Just finished getting it put together and powered it up. Apparently the LED's used for the eyes are bad so I had to call and order a replacement.

      While they are sending them for free, I was told it would be 10 to 15 business days before they arrived. REALLY? Two to three weeks? Will not buy another Meccano product again as if I have to wait that long anytime I receive a defective part, it is not worth it.

        This is a awesome toy! If your child enjoys building things, then this is leaps and bounds ahead of any other basic block kit. Not only can you build Meccanoid, but you also get to bring him to life. Purchased for my 11 year old son and he had a blast building him. It took him about 5-6 hours total build time. A tricky build at times, so I suggest really paying attention to the fine details in the instruction manual. The build was only half the fun. Once complete, Meccanoid comes to life. Capable of 1000's of words, facts and a joke or two. You can control Meccanoid to move, speak, and dance through voice command. Or download the free app to your smart device for even more options to program him yourself. Over all, this is a cool toy for any kid who enjoys to create or work with their hands. But be forewarned, this guys has a big appetite for D batteries, and I would suggest investing in rechargable batteries and a battery charger to keep the fun going.

                Initially overwhelming when opening the box. Too many little pieces (infant in household ) but took to separate room. Easy instructions great that you can see/download them online. Some pics in the book were too dark. Do wish you could recharge but " Roboto" is fun when commanded. Oh the default language is English, so step 1 was unnecessary to find and connect to site.
