Given below are several best robot kits for kids that you can purchase.

UBTECH Jimu Robot Kit

This particular JIMU Robot Builder Kit includes all the parts to build two robots ready for construction: GrabberBot, DigBot or you can come up with your very own JIMU Robot creation. Working treads and an infrared sensor will trigger your imagination. Also you may engage in hands on STEM learning while programming these robots using Blockly code or with the PRP (Pose, Record, Play) function. Although Jimu Robot Kit parts are not compatible with Lego, you will be able to interchange parts between all Jimu Robot Kits, and create your custom robot.


Makeblock Robot Kit

Learning how to code is much more fun when your code manipulates a robot. This robot is based on an Arduino board, the robot kit will teach you programming a micro-controller board to control physical objects using various sensors. This particular robot kit has a heavy-duty mechanical parts, ultrasonic sensor, easy-to-use electronic modules like Me Orion, IR receiver (bluetooth), you can even get an experience on building a programmable robot tank or a three-wheel robot car. From what we know it’s a lot of fun and at least 90 min of total build time untill your imagination kicks in.


Elegoo Smart Robot Car Kit

Just to list a couple of things this kit includes: 24 kinds of module parts, obstacle avoidance module, line tracing module, infrared remote control and Bluetooth 2.0 with edr via android system (phone or tablet). Elegoo Robot Car Kit V3 has multiple modes such as infrared control, auto-go, obstacle avoidance and line tracking. Each mode will let you learn how to boot programs and command the car to run as instructed. The great interaction you’ll have with this robot car kit could definitely motivate you to find out why and how it works this way. A great educational kit for beginners to get hands-on experience working with Arduino, programming, electronics, assembling and robotics.


OWI 14-in-1 Solar Robot

Thi solar powered robot kit can be used to build 14 different robot models, which includes multiple comical and functional ones. Your kido can easily change it from a dog to a running beetle or a crab, zombie, surfer etc. OWI robot kit provides unique parts and accessories that allow robot move on hard surface as well as water. This robot kit is powered by the sun so it will help you start teaching a child about basic concepts behind the alternative energy sources, no batteries are necessary.


4M Doodling Robot

This one is perfect for younger science enthusiasts, especially the ones with an early interest in robotics. Only requires one AA battery which is not included but we can live with that. This robot kit, once assembled, uses vibration and spin generated by its motor to create art, with no special tools or skills required.


Thames & Kosmos Remote Control Machine Kit

In this remote control machine kit a unique six-button infrared remote will allow you to control three separate motors, with easy to use sensors you can move each of them back and forward. All the motors can be used together to make complex machines with many different configurations. This kit will let you assemble 10 models, showcasing different ways in which motors can be used including vehicles like crane, bulldozer, plow, folding car, antique car, racing car, three-blade dozer, and robotic arm. Once you’re done exploring all the models listed in the instruction, your imagination and creativity will let you know what to do next.


Tenergy ODEV Tomo STEM Robot Kit

Another great STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning robot kit that is not only a playing robot kit for kids, but also a programmable robot. It is an app controlled robot kit that has two free Android and IOS apps that will allow to interact and play with Tomo. All parts in this kit are clearly labeled with ports color coded for assembling. This robot can be transformed into extraordinary mantis, six-legged robots and tanks.


OWI Hydraulic Arm Edge Kit

This robotic arm kit will need no electricity or batteries, it’s a great way for a kid to learn hydro-mechanical technology and have fun building operating own hydro-mechanical robotic arm with six axes of varied movements: gripper will open and close up to 1.89 inches, wrist rotation of 180 degrees, wrist mobility of 98 degrees, elbow 44 degrees range, base 270 degrees rotation, and shoulder motion of 45 degrees. With the removal of the gripper, you can activate the suction apparatus. This feature will let you lift larger objects like a smartphone or another toy car. So spend hours picking up legos and other small toys and object with it and experimenting with what each lever does.

Robot kits allow kids and parents have fun while getting experience building and programming, developing basic skills in electronics, assembling and robotics. Are you using any of these robot kits forkids? Let us know in the comments section below.
