It’s robot-fighting time!
My boys love BattleBots! Like they are crazy for it! They have been trying to build their own versions for a while.
Now they can build a real version with their favourite building toys Vex Robotics! They can build Minotaur with over 345+ snap together pieces! It is aimed at ages 9 and up, but I am pretty sure my 7yo will be able to figure it out too. The pieces snap together and it comes with instructions that are easy to follow.
This is really straight forward to put together and will be a hit for any fan of the show! Robot fans will like it too. Plus it encourages STEM based problem solving skills, and teaches kids how robot making can be fun, as well as battling them!
Our boys have learned a lot about how much problem solving skills are needed when making Battlebots. As well as thinking on your feet. They have had some of their designs fail, and learned that failing is a teaching and learning opportunity and not a catastrophic situation. I feel like these Vex Robotics kits will be great learning experiences, and I can’t wait for them to get them on Christmas Day!
