Build your own robot with the Vex Robotics System starter kit. Check out these reviews of models, gadgets and electronics toys for kids.

Enter the high-tech world of robotics! Build your own robot with the Vex Robotics starter kit. This robotics kit comes with over 500 parts and lets you create virtually any robotic device your mind can think of. The kit comes with gears, wheels, most of the tools you need and a super high-tech remote controlled transmitter. Keep in mind that the Vex Robotics starter kit is for serious tech-heads only! There are tons of parts and you may find some of the smaller parts a bit difficult to put together - so be prepared to ask your parents or an older sibling for some robotic assistance. You can also get some help by checking out the Vex Robotics web site at www.vexrobotics.com. The site has lots of cool building tips, design ideas and a chance for you to upload your own robotic creations for other robot builders to see. The Vex Robotics starter kit is a bit hard on the wallet (costs around $300), but if you're a tech-head with a knack for building and creativity, you'll get hours of enjoyment out of this toy.

Vex Robotics Starter Kit Thumbs Up:

  • Lots of pieces - so you can create several different robots.
  • Excellent instructions - lots of background info on how robots work.
  • High-tech remote control.
  • High quality robot parts.

Vex Robotics Starter Kit Thumbs Down:

  • For serious builders only. Building kit has a lot of small pieces, many which aren't labelled.
  • Robot and transmitter takes 14 batteries, so stock up!
  • Starter kit costs around $300 - so you'll have to dig into your savings or nag the 'rents.
