If your looking for gifts for 10 year old boys and want to teach your children early on about robotics and machines? Then Hex-bug’s Vex Robotics Motorized Robotic Arm is the kind of toy you must buy for your little ones. Imagine experimenting and assembling their very first robotic arm and experiencing its movement, power and structure. The motorized arm is ideal for inspiring not only children but also adults as it develops their interest in automation and robotics.
The toy set contains more than 350 pieces, some of which are large plastic plates, others are teeny tiny parts, but they are all easy to assemble as they can literally be snapped together. On an average, it takes about 5 hours of pure entertainment for an adult and child duo to build the sturdy robotic arm. The building set comes with a pictorial instructions manual that is super simple and easy to follow. What’s amazing is that you can create two models, a scorpion and a chopper, using the same toy set.
Unlike the non motorized arm, this Lego set comes with 4 motors that makes the arm completely motorized. What this means is that your child can actually witness the arm in action as it grabs and lifts up little objects. The extendable arm can lift items through its motorized claw using four degrees of freedom.
Once completed, the arm’s height is about 18 inches, which is quite impressive. The round base of this toy can be rotated 360 degrees, giving the arm a free reach to pick up things. VEX Robotics Motorized Robotic Arm is a great educational toy that can trigger brain function and is perfect for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning in your kids.
