Robotics and science based toys are going to be a huge hit in the 2017 year. Green Sciences Salt Water Powered Robot Kit is a really cool way to get both with the additional bonus of hands-on, building play.

This Salt Water Robot Kit is packaged simply and easy to remove from its small box. Inside the box the robot pieces are all in a plastic frame and must be removed from the frame to start building. The instructions include picture illustrations to help with the building portion of the robot kit. 4M Green Science Salt Water Power Robot

The Playtime Experience

Half the playtime with this toy is the building. The instructions do a decent job of walking you through the set up, although at times I did find them a little ambiguous. One the robot was assembled it was barely larger than the palm of my hand. In order to power it up you have to make a heavy salt water solution, meaning you will keep mixing salt in until no more will dissolve. Then if you assembled everything correctly the aluminum battery piece will active the small motor and off the little robot goes. Salt Water Power Robot Review

Final Note

Even though I did find some of the instructions vague and challenging I was able to successfully run my robot on salt water. I would recommend the Salt Water Powered Robot Kit as an inexpensive science and robotics experiment anyone will enjoy building. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9joufJMyWw (You may also like: Kurio Kids Smart Watch)
