Elenco's Romomech Motorized Wood Toy

I've read that these kits can be a little tricky to put together, but I just love the look of the wood with the motorized elements. Wood and machine; it's the best of both worlds!

From my Amazon aStore:
This kit is supplied with pre-punched boards, gears, shafts, switch, motor, battery holder, and all necessary parts. Includes easy-to-follow instructions. Requires 2 "AA" batteries, screwdriver and long nose pliers.

Check out the Robomech from Elenco.

Also check out all of the motorized mechanical toys I've loaded into The Automata / Automaton aStore.

I got this kit from a craigslist posting. It was only $5 - score! The assembly was pretty easy. There are lots of tiny parts, so if you are building with a child be aware of this.

Now, the only catch. The thing does not walk so well. Mine gets two steps along and falls over. So you will have to spend LOTS more time tweaking it. Mine just sits pretty on a shelf. :D

I have the exact same experience. First, my LED's were missing a wire, so I had to get a replacement. Now I've got him assembled and when he steps on his right foot, over he goes.
