Very disappointed with the product I received. The size of the eyes are MUCH smaller then shown on the site. This is definately not as cute as shown.
I was buying this gift for a close friend and was really excited about it from the rave reviews. Unfortunately when I received it, Gro-bot was very underwhelming. Gro-bot's joints were welded wonky and the proportions of the parts were off so it just didn't balance out. The Gro-bot's eyes were not nearly as long as the one pictured and were almost tilted so far down that it seemed he was looking for a male part that was not there. For the price of Gro-bot and the lack of craftmanship was not worth it to me. I was disappointed that Gro-bot looks so cool in the pictures and not nearly as dynamic in person.
Got this as a going-away present for my boss (Silicon Valley tech firm sales team). It was the perfect gift for her personality, because she loves plants and technology. If I had more time, I'd wire mini HID lights (if they make em this small) into the eye sockets, so grow-bot could provide incandescent light to the plants inside.

I gave this as a gift. My mother loved it, said it was absolutely adorable. Made a nice change from the usual flowers/chocolates/jewelry routine. I had assumed she'd use it outside in her garden, but she loves it so much she's keeping it inside where it can be displayed prominently.

I bought the Gro-bot as a Christmas gift for my brother and his girlfriend. They had the same reaction that I did when they opened the box: so cute and so cool! They plan on using it to grow herbs in the kitchen.

this was actually a gift for my dad. he loves it! i love it because it is used from all recycled materials, and it is fun :)
Since I live in a big city, he is perfect for holding a huge variety of things instead of just plants. I've used him as a candle holder, put a tea light in the pot, it glows and is quite the conversation piece. He now has a bunch of twinkle lights in his bowl, to carry a little Holiday cheer. Love these guys!
It's just what my wife wanted a cute and unique item to hold her plants.
This was the perfect gift for my husband. The robot is pretty heavy, which makes it difficult for curious pets to tip over, and is plain old adorable (but manly at the same time of course)
This guy is a great gift!
