I am so excited about sharing today’s post. Recently we were selected to start working with Timberdoodle. Timberdoodle is a parent’s dream come true when it comes to finding educational materials. They offer everything from books and home school curriculum to toys that are fun to play with and educational too. Toys like that are ALWAYS favorites in our home. They provide plenty of opportunities to slip in some learning and the kids are having so much fun, they don’t think of it as school #winner! We want to say a huge thanks to Timberdoodle for sponsoring today’s post and as always, all opinions are my own.
Let’s talk about Robots.
What’s not to love? They are fun, exciting and what kid doesn’t want to build their very own robot?!
This is the Robotis Play 600 Pets Kit.

A dream come true for any kid who loves to build, like our two girls. Over the past year our girls have grown to love building and creating and Russ and I have been trying to encourage them to keep building any way we can. I am pretty sure this might just be the perfect way.
The Robotis Pet kit is perfect for early builders and exciting because it brings their creations to life. The excitement the girls had over building the pet and then having it walk around the house was so much fun to watch.
The pieces on the Robotis kit are chunky and easy to assemble with no tools required making it perfect to play with unsupervised. We also loved the large and easy to follow directions too. This toy is challenging for Marissa to build on her own and a fun toy to work on with Emily.
The kit comes with over 50 pieces, a geared battery operated motor and an instruction manual with directions to build a puppy, blue bird and a cricket. The girls also love that the creations have a variety of movement patterns making each design unique.
We were also able to download directions to make 4 additional creations online and Marissa is even trying to come up with her own creations. I love that it challenges her and makes her think through what works and what doesn’t.
The Robotis Pets kit is a great way to learn reinforce science and math in the home. From following directions, how the gears work with different pieces and sorting/counting pieces.
The creator of this toy really thought the design process through and created a high quality product. Such a breath of fresh air when you’ve purchased toys to have them last less than a week. It’s nice to let the girls explore and play without worrying about something breaking.
So how does it work? Take a look for yourself.
Such a unique and fun toy to grow with.
