Science meets sewing in the Sew Science GloBots kit. This comes with 30 pieces for sewing three different robots that will all light up when connected. The robots come in pre-cut felt pieces with printed guides to show kids where to stick the components. And the instructions include short tutorials on basic sewing techniques, such as a running stitch and a whipstitch, for kids who have never sewn before. First sew the Mom-Bot, and then sew Pop-Bot and Baby-Bot. Snap all six robot hands together in a circle, push the button on Mom-Bot's tummy, and watch as all of the robots light up in what is a completed electric circuit.
It took us one hour to sew one robot, and while it was easy to guide the needle through the pre-cut holes, the instructions were confusing, and we found ourselves having to unthread our robot and start over several times. Another thing we didn't like about the instructions is that measurements for how much thread you'll need are not provided for each sewing step, so you'll want to be careful, especially when using the conductive thread, so that you don't run out before you're done with all your robots.
Along with the 13 pre-cut, perforated felt pieces, four LEDs, three sets of two-part snaps, nine accessories, safety needle, 20 double-stick tape dots, stuffing, embroidery thread, conductive thread, and a battery/pushbutton, you'll need to provide scissors.
The kit comes with two non-replaceable button cell batteries.
