How did they squeeze $300 worth of value into $99

I'm going to give it to you straight! My 9 year old son doesn't like smart toys, he thinks they are too fancy and boring. He loved this product!! I bought it for him at our local store in Secaucus and he was blown away. Firstly, he loves Star Wars. He has never really liked remote control cars because as soon as the battery goes dead, you might as well put them in the cupboard and use them again never! This product is different. I had to help him a little bit sticking the wheels on, but apart from that he did the whole thing himself. Didn't do a great job with the stickers, but it's passable. Once he finished making R2D2, there were all these missions where he could invent his own droid! he could rearrange the sensors to create an intruder alert droid, or make his head spin. He started to understand electronics towards the end of it. One thing I will say, do not try and assemble it without the app, you're in for a world of hurt. There is a diagram on the front - That is not enough information. The app is where it's at, there are some crazy sci-fi 5th dimensional videos showing you how to do things. Also do not assemble on a high table, he will roll right off the moment you turn him on, before you connect it to your phone! we found that out the hard way. He is a resiliant little thing. You should definitely buy this product, if not for your kid, for you!

Best Product Ever!

I bought this product for my 10 year old niece and she absolutely LOVES it! She is a huge Star Wars fan (Rey is her hero) and opening this up MADE her birthday. We spent days together building it and watching her imagination blossom with the invention portion was such a treat. Would 100% recommend!

Perfect gift for aspiring inventors

Bought this for my friend Jill's 8-yr-old daughter, and I haven't heard about anything else since. She now considers me a hero and a God. Whenever I come over, her daughter rushes out to show me her progress on it or different inventions she's made from it. This product is amazing, and if you want to get the best hero of the decade, look no further!

BEST PRESENT FROM HIS UNCLE - HAS INSPIRED MY SON

My son received the droid from his uncle and we built it together and now it's his favourite. It's really changed the way he sees toys and he has become inspired to now do things that create and do rather than just crash things into walls. He now uses his iPad to create and develop something physical, rather than just being stuck in his screen. The best thing, I think the toy will play a path in his direction towards a career in STEM, whether its as a coder or an engineer, he just wants more and more and I couldn't recommend more for all kids.

Toy of the Year

This is not your average R2. It is so much more, I was lucky enough to get early access to the product, and I must say, my 9 year old daughter fell in love with it. She was so proud when she finished building Artoo, that she parading him around the house, in the kitchen, laundry, and even took it to be. Can't wait to try the missions

So. Cool.

This is just an awesome gift. I got one for my cousin and we've both been having a blast! I know it's supposed to be just for kids, but anyone who's ever enjoyed Legos would absolutely LOVE this. So many creative possibilities, you get a lot of re-usability out of your purchase. Good way to bond with your younger cousins too :-)

What's not to love?

The inventor process is entertaining for hours and there's so many missions too. I love hearing from my son about his progress and he talks about it non stop! This is a really educational and thoughtful gift for anyone.

R2D2 Droid Kit

I bought this for my girls ages 11 & 12. They love it. They put the whole thing together by themselves and downloaded the app. If your kids are tech savvy and like Star Wars this would be a great gift to buy.

So Much Fun

Bought this for my nephew. We had a blast putting it together and even more fun playing with it afterwards. It definitely sparked his imagination and hopefully gets him interested in robotics.

Love it

Really fun. I like that the controller is an app on the phone; no risk of loosing it. Also love the instructions. Talks you through each building step with some videos. Really great idea. Allows for long term play because you can take it apart for new builds.
