So, if you could own your very own robot, what would you choose? The Housemaid 500, who never bores of chores? How about a cyborg chef to prep meals 24 hours a day? Let’s face it, we’d probably all opt for something really practical and (whisper it) dull. Ask the same question to a child, however, and the answers are genius.
A weather bot for making snow in summer. A candy-covered droid with cookies for eyes. Creativity is in the nuts and bolts of robots, allowing kids to think freely and abstractly. Bots are also brilliant for introducing very early science skills, such as math and engineering, and for giving kids the chance to be in charge for once!
With all that to consider, it’s looking pretty safe to say that your little one will love making our cute robot. All you need is 20 LEGO® DUPLO® bricks and voila, there it is, ready to be named and put to work. Don’t worry if you haven’t got the exact bricks for this build, because robots can be made in just about any way. Freestyle it!
We’d love to see what awesome robot designs you and your little one build, so share them on our Facebook page. And you never know, your child might just grow up to design you an actual Housemaid 500…
