Robots, odd ends and The Offbits.

My sons are obsessed with building robots, like insanely so. We have made an Artbot (built a motor and figured out how to make it move , then attached pens to it, to make drawings) Made a trash robot from junk and painted it. We also have a kit we will be working through that uses moving parts to turn basic household junk into Working robots. We where delighted to have been sent this cute kit to try from The offbits. You can find their website here http://www.theoffbits.com/story/?src=toolbar .
The kits use Left over parts, that are repainted using very hardwearing paint, and assembled with an instruction manual , In regards of how to build the basic model. It even comes with a screwdriver!

"The OFFBITS are miraculously malfunctioned robots who had been exiled
from their home planet of BigBotBall for stepping out of the assembly lines
and expressing their original, creative and playful personalities."


There are a few Different kits to collect, and we loved the fact it came with other parts ,besides the basic plan and you where encouraged to create other looks to the robot. You get to mount it on a the magantised box to display it afterwards! A lovely hour spent away from the tv, building something they love is always a winner in my eyes. 

The cute Little kit


Assembalise!! (Is that a word? It is now!)


One Happy little boy!
And of course As my son loves making them a wee quick video..we tried to robot bug like moving legs but didn't quite work!
