ROBOTICS FOR KIDS It’s creepy, it’s crawly and it’s built by you! Meet MeccaSpider. Designed to provide hours of interactive fun, MeccaSpider combines construction and programming skills in a hi-tech robotic spider. Meccano, which owns former construction toy brand Erector, offers the latest in robotics for kids with this unique STEM toy that draws on concepts used in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to build and control the programmable robot spider. Children will enjoy the creative challenge of constructing and programming the spider alone or as a fun activity with a parent and feel proud when the creepy crawly robot comes to life using built-in buttons or the free Meccano app on a mobile device. INTERACTIVE BUILT-IN GAMES AND MODES A great way to introduce kids to the fun and innovative world of robotics, kids can interact with the creepy crawly creature in a variety of modes and games. The infrared remote control spider toy will sense movement, chase down enemies and spray venom in attack mode, actively patrol in guard mode, and move around on its own in autonomous mode, playing songs and sound effects. Featuring an IR sensor, MeccaSpider detects movement and chases after whatever it sees, so it can engage, pursue and apprehend whatever is in its path. The programmable robot also comes with built-in games for hours of entertainment. Try a round of ‘Repeat After Me’, a game that challenges kids to copy an array of LED patterns. Gather friends in a circle for a scary game of ‘Venom Roulette’ and see who moves and gets sprayed first. With its endless array of options, this innovative and interactive robot for kids is sure to become an all time favorite. Assembled dimensions: 18″L x 16″W x 7.5″H (46 x 41 x 19 cm)
