by Developer Designer 27 Oct 2022

There’s no doubt that as technology continues to rise in popularity, robots are also piggybacking off this trend. So, what better way to embrace these hot products than exploring the many intricacies (and benefits) that they offer kids of all ages?

In this article, we explore how to buy the perfect robotic toy for your child, alongside a few of our favourite recommendations at Toybox Tales.

The benefits of robotic toys for kids

First thing is first: robots are the future. And what better way to get your kids excited about technology than by giving them their very own robotic wonder to construct and get creative with?

But with so many options on the market, it can be tough to know which one is right for your child. Here are a few initial tips to keep in mind:

  1. Consider your child's age and interests. There are robots designed for all ages on the shelves these days, from toddlers to teens.
  1. Think about what you want your child to get out of the toy.Some robots can teach basic coding or help with STEM learning. Others are simply meant for fun and entertainment. 
  1. Don't forget about durability. You'll want an option that can withstand some rough play - after all, isn’t that what kids are known for?

Okay, now into some recommendations.

4m Kidzrobotix Drummer Robot

If you're looking for a robotic toy for your child, the 4m Kidzrobotix Drummer Robot is a great option. This robot can provide hours of fun and entertainment for your child, and it's an excellent way to teach them about robotics and technology.

Acting as an effective coding toy for kids of various ages, this product is designed to give hours of fun, experimentation and plenty of creativity. Best of all, the Drummer Robot teaches children how to code using basic techniques, without having to use any devices. Above all else, it encourages fine motor skills and encourages an interest in nature, science and technology.

Silverlit Biopod Cyberpunk in Motion

The Silverlit Biopod Cyberpunk In Motion is a cyborg creature that's easy to craft, standing a full 16.6 inches in height when completed. With a whopping 23 available parts and stickers, your Mega Pet is your kid's very own brainchild that's come to life! Perfect as a cyborg adventure, this product comes straight out of the capsule with a glowing LED eye, the most iconic feature of this crowd-favourite.

Johnco Tobbie the Robot

Ready to put your little one to the test? Johnco Tobbie is a six-legged robot that you can construct on your own, good for interacting with kids and experimenting with the wonders of science.

Once you've completed your very own Tobbie, it offers two controlled modes — Follow Me and Explore. In Follow mode, Tobbie follows any object you put on the display screen, like a lively pet. Having sensitive hard-to-reach infrared sensors, Tobbie also allows you to set an effective distance from yourself, so there are no risks or hazards as he goes on his merry way.

Final notes

When it comes to purchasing robotic toys for your children, there are a few key factors you'll want to keep in mind, but it’s all about common sense.

First, consider the age of your child and whether or not they would be able to handle a more sophisticated toy – there are options made for all sorts of skill levels, so it’s worth looking into the features that each product offers.

Finally, factor in your budget and decide how much you're willing to spend on a robotic toy; not all are made equal, and not all have as many features as the next, so it pays (pun not intended) to do your research first.

With these considerations in mind, you should be able to find the perfect robotic toy for your child, giving them endless hours of learning and fun as they get to know their new favourite toy. And you can rest assured knowing that you've made a wise investment.
