What you get
Light up a love of electronics with this light-chasing robot! Wire up the motors, add the switch, and assemble your robot — all while exploring the science behind circuits and sensors. Customize your robot with one of two skins (a turtle or a beetle), then use the included flashlight to make it get a move on. Learn to steer your robot left, right, and head-on... then rewire and reconfigure it so that it runs backwards!
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“Many insects are attracted to light, and this bot is too! Instead of using a standard remote control function, we added a special sensor to create a light-chasing feature for this unique little bot.”- The KiwiCo Product Design team

My son built it in an hour, but played for much longer. My only recommendation is not using it on carpet.
Very Intuitive device to assemble & Great Quality. My Granddaughter was fascinated with the Robot she enjoyed assembling it and operating it.Thank You Kiwi.
And super clear instructions
