Toy robots that entertain and teach
Playing with robots has many advantages that distinguish this type of devices from other educational toys. First of all, the use of robots allows you to learn in practice many rules related to physics, mechanics, robotics and electronics, and often start your adventure with programming. This is extremely important, especially for children, who from an early age should have contact with modern devices and learn how to use them, which in the future will give them an advantage on the labour market and allow them to become a conscious, wise consumer of innovative technologies. Even if your child does not decide to choose a profession related to technology, various modern solutions will accompany him/her in his/her private and professional life, no matter which path he/she takes. Communing with robotic toys also allows you to develop creativity, teach to analyze and solve problems and work in a group. In the case of robots to be assembled on their own, the aspect related to the development of motor skills and learning the principles of creating different structures is also important.
Playing with robots together
Robot toys are also a great way to spend time with your child in a creative and useful way. Playing together is a great excuse to talk about various topics (not necessarily technology) and to update the parent's knowledge of technical sciences or electronics. The presence of a more experienced person will help the child to understand the mechanisms involved in constructing robots more quickly and will provide an incentive to learn how to work in a group, so parental involvement is particularly important when the child has no other company in the form of siblings or colleagues. Playing with robots together also helps to overcome emerging learning difficulties and to climb higher levels in technical fields.
What robotic toys do you find in this category?
In our range you will find, for example, robots based on various types of insects from the Hexbug series. The devices are remote-controlled and can imitate the behaviour of animals and insects that they resemble (scorpion, ant, spider, beetle, scarab and many others), as well as interact with other representatives of their "species", for example fighting. We also offer robotic toys for pet owners, such as a remote controlled cat mouse. Another suggestion is a robot toy that looks like a dinosaur, such as the Roboraptor Giant, which has forty different functions and can change behaviour according to your mood. In this category you will also find a wide range of construction kits for use in STEAM education: for example, the Velleman KSR 19, from which you can create as many as five different robots, and the Artec Blocks Robo Link-B, which allows you to learn about the operation of elements such as gears, motors or cranks. The Qobo Robot Snail, which does not require a screen and teaches the kids the basics of coding, is a great idea for the youngest.
