4M Table Top Robot

Kids will always find learning easier if the act of learning involves an element of play. In fact, that is what play is for, to exercise the body and mind in preparation for real-life experiences. This “Table Top Robot” from 4M is a really clever educational toy designed to teach the child about robotics, mechanical principles, how to use tools and practice their manual dexterity.

The useful little construction toy is a practical and stimulating science and engineering kit that will teach the basics of mechanical engineering and robotics while building a mechanical and moving crab. After the robot crab has been built, it will scuttle about on the floor or on a tabletop and change direction only when it encounters some kind of obstacle. It will turn and spin and sometimes even do acrobatic tricks.
