Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have for Every Star Wars Fan Got this as a birthday present for my son A little bit about him- He is part builder, part basher. Has enjoyed lego kits, but also enjoys playing call of duty with me, and shooting darts at his sister with his Nerf. He is 11 years old, and shares an iPad 2 hand me down with his sister who is 8. Now about the kit: Pros: - The package is awesome, looks super premium and worth far more than what we paid - The SW music in the app is so cool, we had goosebumps - The app looks authentically Star Wars, and the instructions are 3D videos as opposed to old lego instruction booklets that I’m used to - The R2 D2 takes about an hour to make, and we did it as a family which was really fun. - We made some mistakes, and it was interesting seeing how my son and daughter came up with solutions to those mistakes - After you make the R2D2, there are “missions” that teach you how to break it down, build something different, leverage different sensors to make his head turn, force drive, fist bump, drawing etc that was super cool - The customization element was heaps of fun, we got a white sticker sheet that allowed us redesign our droid, once we had finished with the blue sticker version. Cons: - I would love to buy additional sensors - The stickers are a little difficult to put on - I would love more missions? Little Bits? - R2 D2 doesn’t travel that well so make sure you buy a carry case, or disassemble him if you go anywhere Final Verdict This kit has the kind of value or longevity as a +$500 lego or robotics kit, but with so much more. I was genuinely impressed with how my kids were applying the things they learned in the build experience, to everyday things, all while having so much fun. They were explaining how a light switch, bluetooth, dc motor etc work in cars, houses and other items. My only regret is that there aren’t additional add ons or complete kits for us to purchase to keep their curiosity going. This product will sell out this year, I’d be snapping one up before it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic gift Bought Droid for my 12 year old step son for Christmas. He absolutely loved it and has spent many hours constructing it and now playing with it. Will be purchasing the next Driod for him soon.
