My grandson Max, has always been so curious about how things work and how they are built, so when it gets close to his birthday, I’m always looking for something that will peak his curiosity. Have you ever wondered how industrial robots work? You know, the kind of robots that work on assembly lines building other complex pieces? Now you can unlock the mystery behind these cool robots by building your own. This robot is exclusively from HEXBUG® comes the VEX® Robotics Robotic Arm.


This unique Robotic Arm is hand powered and can pick up and relocate items using four degrees of freedom and an articulated grabber hand. The whole crane can rotate 360 degrees, allowing this miniature robot to perform the complex actions of its real life counterpart. Kids and robotics enthusiasts alike will have fun building this STEM-based kit that pays special attention to important scientific principals including gear reductions and power transfer through the robotic arm’s intricate gearing techniques.


HEXBUG® hopes to inspire future generations of engineers and designers by allowing them to explore this exciting field through the fun of hands-on creative play. The VEX Robotics Robotic Arm (PN 406-4202; MSRP $49.99) is complaint with CPSIA standards. Batteries not required. Ages: 8 years and up.

What I loved about this product is that it’s made well and comes with a step by step instruction book to help with the completion of the toy. I would recommend this for any one that wants to stretch their brain muscles and do something more than playing video games.
