    My son loved this turtle.

    My son built it in an hour, but played for much longer. My only recommendation is not using it on carpet.

    the flash lights doesn't work! that is a bit disappointing.

    Overall, it looks very good and my kid was engaged, but later we found out the flashlights doesn't even work. I replaced the battery, make sure it is properly sealed/tighten and nope, not working. I wish you guys can do a better job at QAing even ensuring the flash lights is working to deliver that magical experrience. I am calling to get a new flash light!

    Great learning activity. Super fun.

    Such a fun crate! We had to improvise though, as our box was missing some pieces. We didn’t get the hook half of the Velcro or the foam adhesive. Luckily we had some left overs from other crates that we made work.

    ok

    the robot wasn't as reactive as in the video. the robot struggles to go forward (Mine wont move forward only sideways) but is decant at turning. overall fun to put together. wish the robot would react like in the video. the only other thing is that the zip ties kept breaking so I had to use string and the robot only worked if the flashlight was VERY close to the light sensors.

    Fantastic!

    My daughter hasn’t stopped playing with it. She is now making a track around the whole house, so she can get the turtle to maneuver through it!

    If it's machined correctly it works

    My crate had a hold drilled improperly, so that it didn't fit the nut it was supposed to fit. Luckily my son found a screw he could use instead.

    My son was pretty disappointed in the outcome, but for some reason he was expecting to be coding the robot to follow the light. His little siblings loved playing with it when he was done building it.

    Best project ever!

    My son used this for his science fair project. It was a hit! Interactive, not messy, and it really gave him a lot of information about how it worked. He was able to learn and explain a lot to other kids. Very pleased!
