<![CDATA[Macaroni Kid Reviews the Walking Robot]]> http://www.magformers.com/blog/MacaroniKid/

"My three-year-old enjoyed seeing the robot walk- forward or backward- depending on how the robot top and bottom are attached. He also experimented with where to attach the robot head and arms and he quickly figured out how he can make the robot’s body spin around, and spent many minutes laughing his head off. The rest of the time we spent decorating the body with different costumes using the included Magformers pieces- the pieces simply snap onto the robot’s body. It’s amazing how many different hats and clothes you can form with just a few shapes. Since the Magformer pieces are compatible we had even more options in creating our robot because we could use our previous set."
