“I bought this for my 5 year old son for Christmas. He had asked for a remote controlled robot, and when these became available, we jumped on one. My initial impressions were very favorable. The product was very easy to assemble out of the box (but make sure you have a package of AAA batteries on hand, as the remote takes 3). It’s largely plastic and a rubber-like material, but it’s very sturdy. Not flimsy at all!
We’ve played with it for an hour or so, and it works pretty well. It’s not very easy to get it to do exactly what you want unless you carefully read the manual. It’s far too complicated of a toy for a 5 year old. That’s not Bossa Nova’s fault, but I thought I’d mention it. I’d say the appropriate age for this toy would be 7+. Maybe 8+. And to really enjoy all of its features, you need to be able to read and understand complex instructions. The controller isn’t really intuitive. Until I memorized the manual, I found myself pushing buttons expecting one result, and getting something entirely different.
I should also note that if you value your house, don’t plan on playing with Prime 8 indoors. He’s very heavy and he moves FAST. He’s slammed into my baseboards with enough force to make dents. So he’s now banished to the basement. This is definitely a toy that can (and probably should) run on a sidewalk or in a driveway. Oh — it didn’t work at all on carpet. Not once. So if you have wall-to-wall everywhere in your house, you’ll be disappointed.
I’d probably have given Prime 8 five stars if he was easier to use and if he ran on carpet. But I’m still happy with my purchase. I feel like I got a well-built and well-engineered toy at a reasonable price.”
