Have You Discovered Floambots?


My Review of the Floam Floambot Kit:

If ever a case presented itself that proved you get what you pay for, the Floam Floambot kit is a perfect example. My daughter paid $2.50 for the kit.

In defense of the Floam Floambot kit, I can see why somebody would want to purchase it. It looks like something a kid would want.

Look at the box – those Floambots look awesome. Heck, kids might even want to collect them.

So on a day when my youngest daughter, Brittney, was home from work, she and my five year-old granddaughter, Audrey, decided to work on the project.

First problem: some of the floam was already hardened. As a matter of fact, all of the floam, except for the green floam, was hard. So they were stuck with making a green Floambot.

As you can see from the photo below, the Floambot  Brittney and Audrey created looks exactly like those pictured on box.


Bottom line: these styrofoam Floambots might be fun if they were only fifty cents, but  Amazon sells them for a whopping $15.95, and Brittney found it at Big Lots for $2.50. However, since they easily fall apart once you make them (but can easily be put back together too), why bother with them at all?
