The Japanese believe that interest in robots should start early in life so companies like Tamiya, one of the leaders in the world of model kits are happy to oblige. The Tamiya Swivelbot Kit contains everything you need to make one such mini-robot that moves around and changes direction every time it encounters an obstacle. The only thing you need to add is a R03/AAA/UM4 battery and a little quality time with your children to construct it.
In the heart of the Tamiya Swivelbot Kit is the two-speed Mini Motor Slim Gearbox, which moves a crown gearbox. The gearbox in turn moves the front wheels and adjusts to the environment, depending on the obstacles the round bumper hits. And to make it even more fun, you can take off the moving top antenna and in its place put a greeting card or picture - which makes this a great toy for parties!
