Bleep Bloop. These Are the Best Robot Toys for Kids.

Soon, the robots will rule us all. We may as well try to make friends.

The robots are coming. In fact, they are living among us now, learning from us, studying our every move. Was that just the wind, or did you hear something say “bleep bloop” behind you even while you’re reading this? The good news is that, for the time being, they still answer to us, and in fact, a lot of them are helping kids to learn, play, code, draw, and interact creatively with the world around them. If your kid loves any of those things, but especially if your kid loves robots, these are some of the best robot toys that kids will cherish. 

Mukikim Tracerbots

Leading your own robot army is a lot easier than you think. Your kiddo will use the marker to draw out a path; the bot’s optical sensor then detects and navigates the path. They can set up a maze to lead their bots through, or get creative with obstacles, and trail patterns. These smart little bots will follow wherever your small friend lays down the line.
