What It Is
The Codee Series 1 Robots Expansion Pack from Techno Source is part of the Codee building system. The Codee system is part activity, part puzzle, and part construction toy rolled into one. This set comes with more than 250 links and more than 25 accessories to create your own robots. Instructions, or codes, to build eight different robots are also included. Each set of instructions tells you how many links of each color you'll need to get started. You may need to unchain a few links before starting.
Begin by straightening out strand links into one chain with all the numbers facing you. Starting at link 1, twist until the symbol indicated on the code appears. Possible symbols include a minus sign, a plus sign, a less than symbol, and a dot. Once you have the correct symbol, twist and snap it until it faces the indicated letter in the code. Then move on to the next link. When you come to the end of the chain you'll have a shape that when combined with other Codee chains will create your robot.
Why It’s Fun
We like the complexity Codee brings to building, and with eight different builds across varying degrees of difficulty in one kit we think there is a lot of repeat play value to this set. Plus, the set is open-ended enough to use the links to create your own personalized robots as well. We also like that all the pieces are contained within the chains as you work so you don't need to worry about loosing pieces.
Who It’s For
The Codee Series 1 Robots Expansion Pack is for ages 7 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
When working on part of the links that are grouped tightly together, you may need to move ahead to the next link to fit the other link in the proper place.
You may find some links have moved around as you build. If anything looks out of place when you are done, we suggest going back and double-checking all your links are correctly coded.
This set is compatible with other Codee building sets, which are sold separately.
