What Customers Are Saying
Parents love the Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit as a fun pastime for the whole family. The entertainment isn’t so much what you can do with the finished product as much as how you can customize the product to become your personal droid.
Because of small, hazardous parts, the product is not recommended for children under three. Its greatest appeal is to the generations of Star Wars followers and young, scientific minds.
The kit comes with clear plastic parts and a package of colored stickers. Parents caution using strategy in coloring the pieces as once the sticker is applied, it won’t wash off.
The challenge is in what you can create, and not so much in how many tricks you can make it perform. With its compatibility with other Little Bits kits, the fun begins before you even start putting it together as you decide what else you can do with your kit.
Star Wars has had fifty years of stimulating imaginations and creating interest in future technology. With the Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit, you begin feeling the future is here, with the children creating and programming their own droids. That toy could one day be the foundation for a scientific mind carrying future technologies to a whole new level.
