If your child already plays with Legos, bringing them to life using robotics will be a real thrill. There are five figures you can build with the components of this massive kit, from muscular fighters to snake- and scorpion-like creatures. These robots are all about action—they smash, throw, whir, walk, and talk. Use the infrared remote to control their escapades, or tap into advanced programming features using the company’s free EV3 software. Perhaps best of all, this kit is compatible with all Legos for endless creative and storytelling options. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
