Loving the Vex Robotic Arm from @Hexbug @BestBuy
VEX Robotics – Robotic Arm by HEXBUG is similar to how robots work on assembly lines building other complex pieces of machinery. With the Vex Robotic Arm you can build your own. It is a kit where not only it makes a robotic arm to functionally work to pick up items, but it also can be made into a scorpion if your child chooses or a chopper. This Vex Robotic Arm is inspired by real industrial robot arms. You can get this Robotic Arm at your nearest Best Buy Store or at BestyBuy.com. This Robotic Arm from Hexbug rotates 360 degrees.
The Robotic Arm has to be guided by the user to pick up and place items using the grabber hand. This Robotic Arm has 350 pieces and it actually challenges children and adults to build the brain. There are four points of motion so that you can use each control knob to pick up objects with the claw. The pieces are easy to connect and they snap together. It will lift objects 14 inches high and will extend out to 10 inches, to move in and out. The claw will open up to 5.5 inches to pick up household items.
My son had a lot of fun building this and he does enjoy maneuvering the Robotic Arm. It has given him a lot of hands on experience. My son is almost 17, but he is autistic and this kept him busy and he was concentrating on this. It has helped him a lot actually with his outburst. I am really happy that I had the opportunity to get this in my own home and keep this product. My son loves it so much and it is his new go-to Hexbug Product. He has learned a few engineering skills.
I highly recommend the Vex Robotic Arm from Hexbug to others. It received the toy of the Year Award for 2016 and has a 5 out of 5 stars at BestBuy.com. If you would like to get one of these for your children you can get yours at BestBuy.com or at your local Best Buy Store. At a reasonable price for this item, it is well worth it. It has been the talk of our home, since it was put together and I am sure it will be for a long time. Ages 8 years and up!
