These cars do not come preassembled. You will need to build the bot. This could be a good thing for older students, as they will clearly understand its inner workings. However, for anyone below about 13 or 14, this could be a challenging task, due to the intricate nature and the small part sizes that you must work with. If you are purchasing for a younger child be mindful that someone else will likely need to construct it for them and then they will be set to learn.
