  1. I wanted to start by explaining how I found out about this toy. I noticed the Holiday Toy List for Amazon had just landed, and I sorted the products by “best selling”. To my surprise, the littleBits R2 D2 product shot up from the bottom of the page, right to the top. I’m not sure how Amazon treats featured items, but I would encourage you all to do the same when looking at products. Anyway, I went ahead and purchased the item (knowing nothing about it) assuming I could always return it if my son didn’t like it.A little bit about my son – He is part builder, part basher. Has enjoyed lego kits, but also enjoys playing call of duty with me, and shooting darts at his sister with his Nerf Gun. He is 11 years old, and shares an iPad 2 hand me down with his sister who is 8.Now about the kit:Pros:- The package is awesome, looks super premium and worth far more than $100- The SW music in the app is so cool, we had goosebumps- The app looks authentically Star Wars, and the instructions are 3D videos as opposed to old lego instruction booklets that I’m used to- The R2 D2 takes about an hour to make, and we did it as a family which was really fun.- We made some mistakes, and it was interesting seeing how my son and daughter came up with solutions to those mistakes- They were really proud once they had built the whole thing, and strangely started asking me questions about the drivetrain in my car, and how that relates to what they just built.- After you make the R2D2, there are “missions” that teach you how to break it down, build something different, leverage different sensors to make his head turn, force drive, fist bump, drawing etc that was super cool- The customization element was heaps of fun, we got a white sticker sheet that allowed us redesign our droid, once we had finished with the blue sticker version.Cons:- I would love to buy additional sensors, but Amazon doesn’t seem to sell them, and the app doesn’t appear to support it.- The stickers are a little difficult to put on- I would love more missions? Little Bits?- R2 D2 doesn’t travel that well so make sure you buy a carry case, or disassemble him if you go anywhereFinal VerdictThis kit has the kind of value or longevity as a $400 lego kit, but with so much more. I was genuinely impressed with how my kids were applying the things they learned in the build experience, to everyday things, all while having so much fun. They were explaining how a light switch, bluetooth, dc motor etc work in cars, houses and other items. My only regret is that there aren’t additional add ons or complete kits for us to purchase to keep their curiosity going. This product will sell out this year, I’d be snapping one up before it does.

  2. Bought this after seeing it on the Today Show as a birthday present for my 8 year old son. Wow, let me tell you I can’t believe how much he loves this toy. He is usually always on his phone or computer and doesn’t talk much to us or his siblings, but when we got him this he wouldn’t stop showing off all the cool things he can make his droid do. At first I was worried it might be too difficult for him, he isn’t the best at math or sciences, but he took his time and followed along the videos in the app and was able to make his droid all by himself.  He has been playing with this when he gets home after school and loves scaring the dog with all the sounds the robot can make. If you are concerned that all the bits and parts of this kit would be scattered and lost all over the house, don’t worry they can reuse the box that it came with to keep bits inside, but I definitely wish there was a better storage option. Also I think there is a way to code the droid which sounds pretty great, but you have to download another separate app or something. I wish that it was just inside the original app so he doesn’t have to download so many different apps. I think I might get him another littlebits kit for christmas since he loves this one so much. Anyone have any suggestions? Overall, great toy, great buy definitely reccommend.
