Two motors operate the open, close, lift and lower functions of the large pinchers in the front. The Beetle moves using six wheels that can move forward, backward, right and left. This kit is ideal for learning about gear mechanical structures, motor principles, and electronic circuits.

Received it on time. Product is great and cheaper than other sites.

Cute robot, poorly designed remote control

The robot works well indoors, drives quickly, can rotate around its axis, and the gripper also works excellently. Building the robot is also easy enough. (Tip: Do not tighten the screws of the inner black gear retainer plates too hard, otherwise the gears will not rotate smoothly and the robot may run skewed). It does require 2x 4 AA batteries, no AAA. I am less happy with the remote. If you want to change batteries, you have to disassemble the whole thing including the circuit board. In addition, the circuit board makes very poor contact with the batteries. The LED light on the robot that indicates whether it has a connection with the remote control was also burned out after switching it on twice, but fortunately the robot still works well.

Perfect for 9 year old

My grandson loved putting this together and figuring it out!


Very cute and entertaining! Perfect gift for a 10-year old boy.

Brilliant Robot - highly recommend

I bought this as a birthday present for my 12 year old son and it is his favourite present by far. Instructions are laid out in a nice clear way. The finished robot is brilliant, the remote control is a great touch. We are already deciding which robot kit to but next.
