Budget-friendly robot kits that won’t break the bank! The ROBOTIS PLAY 600 PETS Kit is a great way to get students excited about robotics at an early age. Students get to build up to seven moving creature robots with this kit! Each kit comes equipped with over 50 parts and an easy-to-follow visual assembly manual. Ages 6+ but some 5 year olds may be able to engage the PLAY 600 as well! Students can expand their imaginations and can also work on these ideas while exercising creativity and developing fine-motor skills. No extra tools are required and easy to assemble.

Robotis Inc. recommends 1 kit per child.

Comments from other GEI teacher reviewers

“The students loved this foray into simple robotics, and it’s a good tool for introducing this to our young students. The kit is sturdy and holds up to student use very well; we had no broken pieces despite over 350 kids working with it. This says a good bit about the quality.”

“The challenge is great to build and see how Robotis Play 600 can walk by simple motion of force. What a great way to reinforce a motion and force unit. Also, the kids thought it was exciting to see it move. It is safe to say that the students’ favorite part was to see something they built personally, move.”
