    My grandson was anxious to get started on the Snake Robot. He loves working on projects like this!



    This was one of the best kits we got so far, the others seem to break easily or hard to build, this was amazing



    It was a snake which was cool. Liked the interchangeable skins. You could give it the tires of a monster truck so it could go on rough terrain.



    Like all Kiwico stuff, this is right at the sweet spot of complex enough to be challenging and engaging and intuitive enough for my daughter to build entirely on her own. I love that the assembly doesn’t need any tools or fiddly little parts. The completed snake is adorable, it moves in a really zippy way, and my daughter loves that you can change the “skin” to give it three different looks. It’s really well designed and fun, a perfect rainy day/vacation activity.



    My grand son loved it. Opened it and worked on it non stop until finished



    My daughter had to put it away and hide it from my grandson, because he was so curious about it. They have to set aside time to assist him with it. He's only 6 but he's very academically advanced for his age. It was very hard ti decide what to choose. I'm on a budget but if I wasn't, I would have chosen at least four.
