This creepy crawly kit includes everything needed to build your own glow in the dark robotic bug.
A fun building kit that children can easily put together with simple instructions, this 30 piece set contains 24 robot parts, including glowing wings, a gearbox with motor, gears and bolts. Once built, watch your motorised bug scurry across the floor like a futuristic beetle. Put on the rubber traction pads and take the action outside, watch the bug crawl over sand and rocks. Comes with an engaging booklet full of bug facts, such as 'before plasters, what insect part was a popular bandage'? Fascinating!

Growing stuff is now very appealing. As is making stuff in the kitchen which can be a really fun, joint activity. There is nothing like melting chocolate or making bread to bring out the inner creative. The Rapid Fire Power Popper is one of our top toys and a great present for 7 year olds for when they are being less creative and want to chase their little friends all over the garden.
