It’s a book, a toy, and a robot! This build-it-yourself book that Newsweek called “Toy of the Year” is all of these things and more.
This book is more than a book—it’s a robot waiting to be made! The sturdy, ultrathick cardboard pages contain all the necessary robot components as well as clear instructions for assembly. The flat pieces fit together with slots and tabs, which means there’s no glue and no mess—just a lot of robot fun!
Budding engineers will enjoy this engaging book that encourages them to build and play.
This book contains small pieces that could be a choking hazard, and is not intended for children under age 3.
