Rating:                     ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Recommended age:  6 year-old ++ 

Who would love this: Kids that enjoy construction + technology 

It’s no secret that we LOVE construction and STEM engineering toys. So imagine our excitement when Apitor sent us this intelligent Robot Q set! This toy is full of delightful surprises, and there are so much more to explore, discover and create! 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) Building Bricks With Technical Functions - The package includes 233 building blocks, guide, and control module linked to infrared sensor and colour sensor. We love the bricks with special and technical purposes, such as beams with circular holes that can be securely held together with axles of different lengths and attachable with gears/ wheels. The result is numerous models that look advanced, complex, and COOL! We love the building process, clearly-labelled illustrative guide, and the level-suitability of this toy for a six-year-old. I’m impressed with the strength of the interconnecting pieces, and I love that they are compatible with most major building blocks - meaning, more potential for expansion! 

(2) Control Module + Apitor Kit App - I love the battery-powered control module with studs at the top and holes at both sides, completes with infrared and colour sensors. The magic created by the combination of building bricks and mechanical motor is simply incredible! We can remotely control our built models using the smart “Apitor Kit” App connected via Bluetooth. Our racing car zooms in all directions, the spinning top launcher rotates in furious speed, and the rocking boat swings to and fro like a childhood ride in amusement park. I love the “Gyroscope Control” setting where we can “direct” our robot movement by simply tilting our smartphone or tablet forward, backward, to the left or right. There is also sensor technology and coding programme which we haven’t tested out yet, and we can’t wait to learn more. 

(3) 20 Models - The App provides building instructions of 20 models - gorilla, tower crane, basketball machine, seasaw, elevator and more, each with their unique features and moving mechanism. 

(4) Great Storage Box - I love the storage box with compartments, which is pretty handy for organising the bricks during the assembling process.
