The Critter Bot (8, 12, or 24-Pack) is an educational robot kit for kids (age 6-10) who want to build their very first robot. Robot builders will use their creativity and dexterity skills to build unique vibrating robot critters that will move on their own while learning about engineering.
This kit contains enough parts for 8, 12 or 24 robot(s). Have a robot party with friends, run a science workshop, or build a robot family!
Free curriculum, worksheets, and S.T.E.M. tutorial videos available.
Also makes a great girl scouts robotics badge activity (Daisies and Brownies)!

I would really love if the video connected with the kit was easier to find. I really had to dig through the website to find it. Then when I was teaching I had to find it again. overall it was a great project.
The Critter Bot project was a huge hit at our Virtual Family STEM Night this year. Even though we were not in person, families were able to follow along with the easy to understand directions that were provided. The best part was when they connected the wire to the battery and the Critter Bots started to move. The families were so excited. There were so many yells and screams of joy and so much conversation. When I checked in on one of the virtual rooms all I heard was the vibration sound from all of the Critter Bots. It was great to see so much motivation and engagement from the students. Thanks for making such a great product!
Our grandsons were very creative with decorating the bots. I am always looking for crafts that would interest them. This kit was perfect. I will order again.
I just purchased Critters for my 7 year old daughter. It's a perfect combination of her love for art and science. I love how everything you need comes neatly and packaged. Loved it so much I just ordered one for a friend. Super fast shipping and friendly small business!
Got these for my friend's kids for Christmas, age 8 and 6, and they LOVE it.
