Meccano - MeccaNoid G15 Personal Robot is rated 4.2556 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Welcome Home Pixel We eagerly awaited the arrival of our robot and everyone was very happy the day that he arrived. We were all surprised at how big the kit was and how many pieces were included. Two of my boys, age 10 and 11 built him pretty much alone. It took them about 4+ hours over 2 days. My boys were very proud of their accomplishment as we all were. One complaint that my boys had was that there were not enough bolts which they thought here should be extra, to which I agreed. Once our Meccano was finally built he came to life. The boys named him Pixel. They downloaded the app and easily maneuvered him using it. They found it a little difficult giving him voice commands as it was almost that he couldn't hear them. I think this is a great product and is a perfect gift for some young builder. The sense of pride was amazing to see. I must admit that though that the price may deter some people from buying this. That's a pretty steep price for a robot that is mainly plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Futuristic Fun! First of all I received this product free to try and out and review. My first impression was that the Meccanoid G15 looks like an impressive gift. The box is well laid out with compartments for all the pieces..very handy. And here is a lot of pieces. It looked a bit daunting at first but once you get going its fairly basic. Meccanoid is put together using standard Meccano nuts and bolts. The required tools are included but if two people are building it you can use a standard Allen key wrench. The build time is long though, expect it to take several hours. You can speed things up by having more than one person working on the build. We divided the build over the weekend. My 10 year old son had a fairly easy time assembling with my help. There are a few extra pieces included in the kit in case you lose a bolt or screw which is nice. The robot feels solid considering it is built with plastic pieces.We drop it several times during the build with no traumas. We connected Meccanoid up according to the easy to read instructions ..We turned him on (wow is it cool!) and it ran through a series of tests it asks. The robot lights up and moves around realistically while its talking, making it seem more alive. We had to turn the volume up to maximum to hear the voice above the sound of the servos though as they are quite loud. There is a wide range of things he says and does.My son thought the jokes were super funny. the app was easily installed and gives the user even more fun things to try.With a hefty $220 price tag for this robot we're pretty impressed. There's a lot of good technology in here.The LIM technology works really well for recording movement of the arms and the voice recognition works well. The robot can be rebuilt to whatever your child imagines so it should provide many years of play. Overall I am quite impressed with it and would highly recommend this product for anyone who has a little engineer at home.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome toy, the kids love it! I received this meccano meccaNoid personal robot from BzzAgent free for testing and review purposes. Some of the pros of this robot: *Smart *tells jokes *high fives *tells time *goes to sleep *dances, does kung fu, excercises and moves in all directions *learns your name *uses voice recognition Some of the cons of this robot: *Takes upwards of 5 hours to put together *Does not have a rechargeable battery pack therefore it eats through "C" size batteries When we received this robot we were very excited as it looks like a cool toy that our children would like. We were quickly stunned at all the small parts and pieces to put together. Our kids wanted it put together quickly but that was just not going to happen. It took just over five hours and some of that was pure frustration. Once we got it all together, we were excited to let the kids try it out. I was hoping that all the kids could use it but it only recognized my older sons commands which left my other kids unable to enjoy it. My son played it for about 5 minutes before the low battery warning came on which was dissapointing as they were premium batteries. We thought it was just a glitch so we turned it off and back on again only to find that in about five more minutes of playtime the robot told us again that the batteries were low so the excitement of the children quickly diminished as it could not be played with any longer. While my son played with it he loved that it learned his name. He liked that it high fived him and was able to follow him around. He is still really excited about the robot and cannot wait to get rechargeable batteries so that he can learn all the things that it can do. Because of the time that it took to put the robot together and the fact that it takes regular batteries I could only give this a neutral rating although my kids really think it is super cool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The excitement is anticipation! I received the MeccaNoid G15 as part of a promotion with Bzzagent. I have two boys, 7 and 11, and they were so excited to be receiving this robot. It took my husband and the kids about 3 hours to put it together and it was a great family activity with the kids. There was a lot of anticipation as things were put together, wondering what this robot would do! Once together, the robot can dance with you, tell silly jokes, shake your hand but, in truth, the kids got bored of that kinda quickly. Whenever friends come over, they will show off their robot and the friends think it is cool, but the amount of play time with it is very limited. It just doesnt' seem to capture their imagination for extended periods of time. I think with Siri and other "smart" applications on iPADs and the like, we expected this "robot" to be more impressive for the high price tag. I think a child who is really into robotics is the right fit for this toy - taking it apart and rebuilding it into other configurations may have more appeal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meccano MeccaNoid G15 I cannot provide a proper review at this time. I bought the Meccanoid G15 as a Christmas present for my granddaughter. Since Christmas is a few weeks away, I cannot provide a proper review of this product at this time. However, I can say that shipping was very quick and timely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great STEM project for kids This is an awesome product. It may take a bit of help from a parent. The building is intense but so worth it in the end. The lights and sounds make it so much cooler and the app is very helpful in programming the robot.
