You’ll never want to throw your pop cans away after bringing the Toysmith 4M Tin Can Robot to life. Hello, Mr. googly eyes with drinking straw arms, and see-through, battery-operated jetpack! Actually, the would-be jetpack is more like his walking motor, but what’s not to love about this guy? With such personality, he definitely deserves a name.
After assembling the robot and studying his mechanisms, you can start forming ideas on how to make a whole colony of soda can robots, and better yet, engage them in a mini battle… sort of along the lines as that show they used to air a while back. Was it “Battlebots?”
Your mama is going to love you for filling your room with even more trash, and meanwhile Mama Earth will love you for reusing and reducing waste. Young minds will be inspired and turned on to the exciting field of robotics and how random parts around the house can be salvaged to build something incredible. And you know future geeks are going to be intrinsic in the battle of cleaning up the mess we humans have made.
