What makes it Hot Diggity Great: Families will love building this quirky little robot and seeing him come to life! The step-by-step instructions are laid out well and once he's built, and the gears are in motion, little engineers (and the big ones too) will feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment.
1. Don’t be alarmed if you have a few extra parts. Those are included just in case you need a spare part down the road.
2. If you push the start button and there is some hesitation, try realigning your gears. As it is a construction toy, some “fine tuning” alignment will likely be required after assembly.
3. When affixing the connector pieces on to the sides of the robot, pay close attention to the diagram to locate the correct spot. If your gears don’t work in tandem once completed, double check the placement of the gears.
4. Prior to assembly, organize each part by putting them in piles and put a post-it note with the part number next to each pile.
