A big thank you to OP. I freaking love these wooden kits. I've built a couple of clocks, a trolley/tram, a three-way locking treasure box and a motorcycle. I've also given a model Eiffel Tower kit as a gift.

As near as I can tell, the Robotime brand is either a copy of or rebrand of the Rokr kits. The other major brand is UGears. Both are excellent although each has their strengths/weaknesses. I've found the instructions and quality of plywood to be marginally better in the Rokr/Robotime offerings, whereas I think the design engineering of the UGears kits is slightly more innovative.

These kits are a hoot if (and this is a qualified "if") you are mechanically inclined and enjoy intricate construction projects. If that's your thing, there's something strangely meditative about assembling these and they're very satisfying when complete. On the other hand, if your idea of a fun model kit is either those Snaptite plastic kits or that 13 piece wooden lobster boat you see at tourist shops, then look elsewhere. In 4 one OP; thanks!
This gets an "F" on Fakespot, but I still bought one. We've bought 4 or 5 similar type puzzles and they're always fun and challenging, even when they don't work exactly as intended. YMMV!

What do you do with them after building? I have a few including this one and they just sit lol

Still, they're fun projects that take many hours to complete and more engaging than a movie or TV show.

Bought one too. This looks like a fun and cheap alternative to Lego Technics where I have to constantly force myself to not buy sets after sets. And I couldn't care less about lamespot. I wish it would just disappear from SD.

Robotime/Rokr/Rolife are all the same company. I love their kits. Have too many of them. laugh out loud https://www.robotimeonline.com/
