Geosmart Mars Explorer Review (Smart Toys and Games)

Geosmart Mars Explorer
What It Is
Kids can pretend to explore the terrain of Mars or the terrain of their bedrooms with the Geosmart Mars Explorer construction set. There are four ways to build with the 51 pieces in this magnetic construction set. Use LED lights, track wheels, a motor, and a remote control along with colorful geometric shapes to build and drive a Mars Explorer vehicle.
Is It Fun?
With four different models to choose from, kids can build and rebuild, and even try their hand at building a model of their own creation. The magnets stick together very well and create pretty sturdy models. Plus, it’s easy to navigate the finished models using the remote control’s buttons, allowing kids to drive their Mars Explorer on all sorts of imaginative space missions. We just wish the picture-only instructions were clearer. This is a cool merging of construction play and R/C vehicles that will appeal to kids who like both.
Who It’s For
The Geosmart Mars Explorer is for ages 5 and up. Kids who like construction and R/C toys will like the combination of both in this set.
What To Be Aware Of

It took us about 20 minutes to build the first model, and that included time to rebuild it because the instructions were so unclear that we built it wrong the first time and it wouldn’t drive.

The set comes with eight squares, two trapezoids, two diamonds, two isosceles triangles, an LED panel, three tube connectors, one tube coupling, eight triangles, a transmitter, a receiver, two square panels, two diamond panels, two isosceles panels, two triangular panels, two snap-in motors, four track wheels, two tracks, two long snap-in arms, and four short snap-in arms.

You’ll need seven AAA batteries, which are not included.

The pieces in this construction set are not compatible with other magnetic construction toys.

The built-in magnets are protected by a double-safety system of durable plastic housing and stainless steel clamps.
