Purchased on Mighty Ape

Just received MAX today, and haven't had the pleasure of introducing him to my daughter yet, so this review is purely based on my impression. First off, the cons:

  1. Instructions are great for building the robot, but when it comes to the wiring, can take a little trial and error to get it right.
  2. MAX finds it hard to hear me a good deal of the time (about 50%). I assume this is mostly due to being a kiwi. Pretty much anything that is voice controlled takes issue with the Kiwi accent, and MAX is no different.

Pros: All I can really say is that I had an absolute blast building him by myself. I can only imagine how much of a good time it would be building this with an eager child of perhaps 8 upwards (my daughter is turning 5, so the building would be a bit beyond her at this stage) – this would certainly be a great bonding experience! Once he was complete, I then proceeded to spend a good couple of hours just mucking about. Despite the lack of understanding my accent, I had a great time just interacting with him, he really does have a cool little personality. The phone/tablet app also does a remarkable job of controlling MAX, and it was fun just roaming him around the house. Overall day 1 impression is that I don't regret buying it at all. I can't wait to introduce my daughter to him and while the initial novelty will certainly wear off, I do see MAX getting a hell of a lot of use. I would recommend this to anyone with a child that shows interest in technology, and certainly think that the price of admission, while reasonably high, is still worth paying.


Build an artificially intelligent, interactive 30cm tall robot from 332 parts including 4 servo motors.

This curious interactive robot reacts and responds with realistic emotions, becoming more intelligent the more he is played with. You'll know exactly what its thinking based on its expressive facial graphics.

Kids can program M.A.X. to guard their bedroom, sing songs, tell jokes and remember and discuss activities and games they've played together. He's constantly learning – he plots and plans instead of just mimicking, and he loves to talk and discover new things about his friends and the world around them.

Built-in infrared sensors help M.A.X. navigate obstacles as he explores his new world. M.A.X. can also be controlled using voice commands, buttons on the MeccaBrain, or by using the free Meccano app that you can download onto your smart device from iTunes or the Play Store.

As a S.T.E.M. robotics platform, M.A.X is designed to engage kids in intellectually stimulating play, drawing on their knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math. M.A.X. is a great way to introduce kids to the fun and innovative world of S.T.E.M., robotics and artificial intelligence.

NiMH rechargable battery and charger included.

Tools and instructions included. For ages 10 and up.

As seen on TV.
