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.

Where do I start!? Got this for my daughter for xmas 2016 and it hasn't worked correctly once. The assembly is challenging but that's part of the fun and has probably been the best the part.

The issues with it have been multiple.
1. Says insufficient battery at times even when the batteries are brand new.
2. Will randomly power off then power back on. Very frustrating when a child is attempting to play with it and it wont stay on.
3. Can not seem to turn left on command. If told to turn left it will turn right. Can turn left just fine while dancing or if the "walk with me" command is used.
4. Voice recognition is spotty at best.

Customer service is mediocre at best depending on who you get to talk to. they have been good about sending parts to attempt to fix the issues although the shipping is incredibly slow. Over the past 5 months, yes 5 months, I have replaced the battery box ( they sent me the wrong battery box twice), the brain, and all 4 servos, along with countless reprogramming of the brain. All original issues still persist! At one point the customer service rep told me to just go online and google you tube videos and see if anyone else had a similar problem and how to fix it! That's not customer service, that's being lazy and admitting you don't have a clue! Now their current solution is to completely disassemble the meccanoid and rebuild it! I was an electronics technician in the military for 10 years and have experience working with robots so unless they can explain to me plausibly how that has a chance of fixing these issues that's not happening.

In short fun to build, bad customer service, doesn't work worth a darn! If you want your child to be disappointed than go for it!

      My Grandson wanted to get a robot to build with his Dad for Father's Day, so I told him to start his research on the internet. He came back with a $300 choice, and I told him that was way too much, keep looking for something smaller and less expensive, and try Toys R Us. Five minutes later, he said " Grandma, I have found the perfect robot at the best price". And he sure did! What a savings on a fantastic brand!!! Thank you Toys R Us

            I bought this for my 7 year old son. He and I had a great time putting it together! He was so excited when it started up and was talking. I think the thing he likes best about it right now is that he can take it outside (or on the non-carpeted floors) and it will walk with him. It also tells stories and jokes, plays games, and has many other voice activated features. It was a little more than I wanted to spend on a "toy" but my son has had so much fun with it in the week that we've had it that it was well worth the money spent!

                  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!
