Star Wars: Darth Vader Bionic Arm Kit £7.99 @ Play
Today shall henceforth be known as Sarah's Star Wars day due to the awesome Star Wars deals that are out there in the big wide Internet world!
This Darth Vader bionic arm kit is just the sort of thing you're looking for (said using my Jedi mind powers!) if you want an activity to do with your young Star Wars fan, that's both fun and educational at the same time.
Following the instructions, you'll build the robotic arm which will then be fully functional and able to grip and move object with you at the helm of the interactive controls. Kids will also learn how robotic arms are being used in medical science and how they mimic the way our own arms work.
The review I read explains how the arm is made up of snap-together parts, not so many that it becomes a nightmare but not too few that it's all over in half a minute. They also wrote: Fun - not too complex to build. rotates, and fingers grip and release via manual controls.
