Easy to put together.
This is a great toy, easy to put together! This has the best set of directions, PICTURES! The directions were very easy to follow, in fact so easy that my 11 and 9 year old had no issues putting the rover together. The pieces are colored and coded in the directions for easy assembly. These pieces are very easy to put together if you made a mistake they were easy to take apart. These pieces are just a ball and joint type of piece so they are great for small kids to snap together and take apart. My 4 year old nephew came up while my kids were putting this together and he had no issues putting these pieces together and taking them apart. He had a ton of fun. This toy is not a cheap plastic it is actually very high quality and looks great when completed. What I like most about this is the different designs this set gives you so you have options on what to build. My kids put every design together and had no issues with following directions. Overall I am very pleased with this toy, very easy for kids to put together and a joy for them to play with their creations. I received this toy thru the spark reviewer program, this is my honest unbiased opinion and have come to it by having my own children playing with this toy.

Ehhh
The Zoob Galaxy-Z Astrotech rover comes with many snap on pieces that you can build a variety of vehicles and other spaceships with. I found the pieces unsnapped when you would try to snap on other parts. The process of putting together the pieces is somewhat confusing because the instruction manual has certain different pieces illustrated as the same colors, making the builder have to go back and unsnap pieces because they were the wrong fit. Some pieces were the same color in the instruction manual on one step then step 2 the piece was a different color in the manual. It was hard to tell the white & grey pieces apart from the directions. depending on how far along you are in putting together the pieces. Once the rover was put together it seemed lopsided and wouldn't wheel without you having to move the wheels a certain way. I don't see any kids under 6 wanting to put this thing together after 20 minutes. It comes with 64 individual pieces. If the final product wheeled correctly and didn't need the user to keep snapping in parts to make it seem right, then one would be satisfied with the utility of this product. I don't see kids looking to dismantle this thing and put it back together once they make something out of it. The 4 inch figure it comes with is very loose around the waste and just not put together well. The instruction manual comes with ideas for different things you can make out of this. Overall, ehh not impressed.

Awesome building toy that really moves

This Rover is awesome. It was very easy for my son to assemble. Parts easily snap together. Instructions very easy for children to follow, complete with pictures/diagrams. The wheels really move, which is a huge plus over some of the other "building toys" out there. And the space guy fits great inside his cockpit. The cockpit opens and closes with ease. Makes a couple of different vehicles. Leaves room for the imagination to take over. Would work well both indoors and outdoors.

Cool Toy

I received this product through the Spark reviewer program by Walmart. This is one awesome toy. When finished the main Rover build it's a rather large vehicle(16 inches long and 8 inches high). The Rover is fairly stable and can take being rolled and handled without collapsing. The instruction booklet contains pictorial instructions for each of the four builds(Rover, Retriever, Escape Pod, and Satellite). My eight year old son easily built each one with no help from me. However, for younger children, the builds may be quite confusing. The recommended age is 6 and above. I would say that is a good age. Most 6 year old's hand-eye coordination is good enough to build with small pieces. Nowadays, I would not put anything past any child who is determined to do something. There are only four colors used in the Rover set- white, orange, black, and silver(with the silver having two types of Zoob pieces. It can take some concentration to determine which pieces/colors are connected, but surely can be done. My son really enjoys playing with this Rover and changing it up when he wants to play something else. This set introduces some new pieces that add to the fun, such as: lasers, wings, cockpit, and a Zoob person. The one thing my son wishes this Rover could do is actually shoot the spikes. "Now, that would be totally awesome!"(my son's words) Other than that, he's quite pleased with it. I like that all the pieces in this set are compatible with other Zoob sets we own. I love Zoob because they are good educational build toys. If your child loves using their hands and building(as mine does) then this is the toy for them. Also, just because I have this for my son, girls who love to build, would surely love this as well.

Lots of fun for ages 6+

ZOOB Galax-Z Astrotech Rover The directions are mostly pictorial and very easy to understand. They are color coded and show the exact shape of the piece you will need for each step. The pieces snap together with ease and seem very durable. You don't have to worry about applying too much pressure. The pieces satellite, escape pod, and retriever were equally as fun and easy to build. My Grandson who is turning 12 soon really enjoyed playing with this and the following of directions, following through, and seeing the end result is quite rewarding. Once it is completely built, it stands a little over half a foot tall, and over half a foot long. The tracks (black) seem a little loose, but not loose enough where they would fall off. The pieces are a fairly good size as well, so even if one falls, it won't get over looked, or lost too easily! The end result is a sturdy, well built toy that will encourage all sorts of imaginary play.

"Better than Legos"

This kit is for ages 6+. My 11 year old and 14 year old son played with this ZOOB Galax-Z Astrotech Rover set. They loved it and said "this is better than Legos!"...and they both have a VERY extensive collection of Lego sets and pieces for years so they should know. This ZOOB set makes four different toys- an AstroTech Rover, Escape Pod, Retriever, and a Satellite. Only one can be made at a time since you use most of the 63 pieces for each designated design. It comes with a 4" Helio astronaut that fits/rides in the Rover and the Escape Pod. All the pieces can be taken apart easily and can be designed into other creations- allowing you to make either one toy using your imagination or maybe 2 small ones. My son found the instructions easy to follow on his own and had lots of fun creating his own air and land crafts for the future lol. The main reason they like this ZOOB item better than Lego sets is that the pieces stay together well- unlike Legos that "easily fall apart as you play" with your creations. I think for younger kids this would cut down on the frustration they experience when they spend time putting something together only to have pieces falling off. The pieces are also larger than most Lego pieces therefore easier for little hands to handle and put together/take apart. I received this ZOOB product from the Spark Reviewer program to check it out and give it my honest opinion.

ZOOB Galax-Z Astrotech Rover

I got this toy for my great grandson....he loves it..and so do the older kids in the family....Since he is not yet 6 he does need a bit of help with the instructions, but he can easily snap all the pieces together....Four designs can be built with this set....the Rover, a Satellite, an Escape Pod, and a Retriever....His favorite is the Rover which is fairly large when it's constructed..16" long and 8" high.....He really likes and enjoys Helio the Zoobonaut with helmet who can sit in the cockpit of the Rover and also in the Escape Pod. The set comes in a sturdy box which is great for storage. The Zoob pieces seem fairly sturdy but should they get damaged... ZOOB pieces come with a free lifetime replacement offer. I think this building set is a great alternative to Lego and K'nex....especially for younger children...but there is a 10 yr old in the family who wants it for his birthday so I will be purchasing another one...

Good for small hands!

I intend to give this to my grandson as a gift. He is 5, and even though this toy is rated 6+ years, I think he can handle this set. The pieces are larger than Legos, and connect in a different way. I have a picture of a few pieces to show how they connect. There are directions to build five different vehicles. The track rollers are a sturdy, heavy duty plastic that actually roll. The direction book shows each step in the construction of a vechicle. It is a large booklet with color illustrations. Child may need some help understanding some of the directions. This set comes with one character as seen in the window on the front of the box. Pieces are bagged in three different bags. You could store it in the box, but it would be better to find a large bag or snap-on lid box.

Good building set

The ZOOB Galax-Z Astrotech Rover set is compatible with other ZOOBs. The basic building pieces work a bit like a "ball and socket". (They call the socket a "jaw"). The balls easily snap into the jaws and can move around once connected. This set makes more than the Astrotech Rover. In addition to the rover you can build a satellite, an escape pod and a retriever however you can only build one at a time as most of the same parts are needed across platforms. The directions are numbered and mostly visual so it's easy to follow along. The set has 63 pieces including track wheels and a figure that can be used if you have other ZOOBs. It's a fun set, labeled for 6 and up.

Sturdy Product for Tough Play

The Galax-Z Astrotech Rover is a fun ZOOB set that allows kids to build four different models from a single building set – a retriever, escape pod, satellite or the astrotech rover. This set contains 63 pieces and is recommended for ages 6+. Building pieces come in a variety of colors. This is our first ZOOB kit so I was pleasantly surprised to find that the pieces are compatible with any future sets we may purchase. I gave this kit to my 8-year old son. With the instructions (which the booklet includes pictures), he was able to put this together on his own. He absolutely loves putting legos together, so this was right up his ‘alley'. I do wonder how long he will play with this set though, since it is a little more baby-ish, at least with comparison to his other Legos that he constructs. The main Astrotech Rover was my son's favorite to build. At completion, the vehicle stood 8 inches high and was 16 inches long. It has been able to withstand rough handling and a roll down a couple stairs without breaking. In addition to the 4 models in the instruction booklet, kids can also design their own vehicles. Overall, I would say this is a nice product for the price, but better suited for children 6-8 years old.

Snap Togethers

I did not like this snap together toy. It took me 2 hours to put the thing together. I needed an extra hand a couple times, plus the snaps that are open ended are hard to get to work. Extra parts and miss colored instructions did not help any. But i did get it together after a while. Even adding the extra parts.
