Plot the ultimate sneak attack with rapid-fire abilities! The VEX Robotics SwitchGrip allows kids to construct and wield their very own futuristic blaster. Insert projectiles down the neck of the barrel and use pumping action to watch them take flight. Intended as an entryway to STEM, this toy aims to curate an engineer’s mentality through an effective play pattern. Part of the 2017 VEX Robotics kinetic kit releases, the SwitchGrip contains one of our most unique features ever, a signature pump handle allows super speedy launches! Holding six plus projectiles at once, this machine cuts down on reload time, allowing for more playtime!
Made from over 140 pieces this kit holds true to VEX Robotics’ staple tool-less assembly, compatible with the VEX IQ snap-together platform. Great for a rainy afternoon project or an in-class activity, this kit is ranked a “3” on the difficulty scale. This means that both the traditional and Alternate Build (Extended Mag) are achievable to assemble even if you’ve had very little experience with STEM toys to begin with. Create an array of homemade targets outside out of stacking cups or blocks, and see what this toy is really capable of. You will be amazed! The VEX Robotics Crossfire Airplane Launcher is $19.99 at hexbug.com.
