Take the domino phenomenon that one step further with the thrilling Domino Robot Factory, suitable for 4 Years +.
Jam packed with a series of additional fun and interactive elements including; tipper car, crazy ball track, tipper arm and ramps help form an exciting robot themed production line to add drama and spectacle. Use stored energy to catapult the wooden ball into the air, motor along the double sided track before momentum travels through the spinning arm, with the end in sight watch as the finishing flag begins to fly. With no rule book the build is in your hands!
I am a mother to a 7-year-old girl who is an active full-time wheelchair user with a high interest in STEAM. We try to stimulate her interest with toys that are fun whilst encouraging her imagination. We received the HAPE Robot Dominos to review.
My daughter was excited to get into the box as soon as she received the package. The packaging is very sturdy and colourful and did well to draw her interest. The quality of the individual components are top-notch and they have been built to stand up to what little hands can throw at them.
We set up the dominos as shown and everything worked seamlessly when we eventually got the set-up all right. This set contains enough pieces to provide hours of family fun. We've been able to create countless different layouts setting them up. As well as being fun, I like that how the product also aids spatial awareness and dexterity, helping children to learn through play and encouraging creativity.
The tunnel bit does pop out quite a bit and my daughter finds that quite annoying but it doesn’t detract too much from the overall fun experience. That being said, she does quite like the robot illustrations on the very colourful pieces. A lot of thought went into the design and it shows.
A storage bag or box of some sort would be a welcome addition as we now struggle with how to store all the rattling pieces in the original packaging.
I would happily buy this toy and recommend it highly.
