Meccano MeccaSpider Robot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly cool toy for 10-year-olds As soon as I saw the box of the Meccano Meccaspider, I knew my boys would go nuts for it. My sons are 9 and 11 and are the perfect age for this. They went crazy when they saw it and acted like it was Christmas morning. My kids don't typically focus in on a specific toy for more than a couple hours, but they were working on it and playing with it for four hours before we had to leave to go somewhere. As soon as we got back, they went right to it again, which is rare in a house with chromebooks and smartphones. They love the toy, could not be more excited about it and I'm sure that any other kid who gets this will have a similar reaction. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for older kids I oversaw my 12 yr old put the Meccaspider together with some help from my husband. It was nice watching them work on it together and even though the age is 11+ most kids probably need some assistance. Once it was assembled everyone had fun with the robot. My son read up on some “upgrades “ he’s excited about but I haven’t read about these yet. This is a great gift for any kid, boy or girl, with any interest. My boys like You Tube and sports, but the robot gets them off you tube for a bit while they have fun with it. I’m thinking of looking into other products for Christmas and birthday gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Innovational Toy My youngest son has always been interested in robotics and programming things, and this is the perfect toy for him! He began building it the moment we got it (though he needed some help from his father), and the spider quickly came into life. When he finishes his homework, he rushes to play around with it. However, the spraying feature of the toy is not the best idea, especially in the hands of my son. His sister has been sprayed many times and it has stirred up some family chaos. At the end of the day, however, this toy is still wonderful and great for a curious boy like mine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spider Robot fun! My son who is 12 tried this product. It took him approximately 3 hours from start to finish. The instructions could have been a bit clearer, you had to follow pictures with no word explanations, but he was able to successfully complete it. The age reccomendation for this item is 10+, we would have to say it would be better suited for 12+. Once the Meccaspider was completed (looks really awesome!) it was very cool to see how it actually interacted with you. You move, it moved. The different settings were fun to play with. We were very surprised at how large it was. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting for young engineers! My son had a great time putting together his Meccano. We both loved the fact that this was something different and unique. At 12 years old, he was able to put it together himself although he did say it was a little difficult but that the instructions were easy to follow. Once put together we've had a challenge getting it to operate. He hasn't been able to program it or play with it. I looked at it and was unable to figure out why it wasn't working. I gave this product a 4 out of 5 stars because I think it's unique and fun. I'm assuming we're missing something in following the directions or just our unit is faulty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Toy For Tweens This is a great STEM toy for tweens. My son was excited to begin to work on the spider. He specifically liked that it spits "venom." There are a lot of pieces, so the project is taking a little time to put together, but that's part of the fun. Think of legos on steroids. It really uses the tactile skills and the mental skills in all one application. He's about halfway completed with the construction and he hopes to have it finished in the next couple of days. He can't wait to get it working to "protect" his room from his sister. It's a great toy and I will be telling all my friends for a holiday gift idea!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great STEM learning toy My 12 year old had a lot of fun putting this together. I helped which probably made it take longer than it should have, but we did have fun. The screws are small and the tools can be hard to hold but we muddled thru and my son is thrilled with is work. His friends just love it. With the remote feature you are able to spray water, control sound and direction. Hard floors are better than carpet, especially with the water feature. Be advised it is slower than you would think and won't work just like the advertisers say. But all in all it was great quality time and fun. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for mechanical kids! My 14 year-old enjoys puzzles and creating things, so he put this one together. It took him several hours because there are lots of pieces and parts. He had a good time putting it together and found it to be a fun toy to terrorize the cat with. It's a pretty loud toy as it clunks around the house... but it does have several modes and shoots "venom" which he said is pretty cool. He thought the 6 C batteries that it requires was a bit excessive. Could be a cool toy for the right kid, but I think you would definitely need adult help if you were any younger.
