KikoRobot.962
KikoRobot.962
Our Price: $27.95

At first glance, KikoRobot.962 offers a distinct resemblance to the award-winning KIKO.893. But, upon further evaluation, one cannot help but notice KikoRobot.962 is the bigger, faster, stronger version of the little yellow robot from 2018. KikoRobot.962 comes equipped with the same I/R (infrared) and AI (artificial intelligence) technology that made the older version a fan favorite. Aside from that similarity, the two robots are a stark comparison. KikoRobot.962 features an improved gearbox and a new eight leg design, allowing the robot to reach higher speeds as it comically scurries around in both follow-me and explore mode, quickly leaving KIKO.893 in the dust. Boys and girls will love having a friendly robot companion pursue their every move, or complete handmade obstacles with ease. Parents will look on with glee as their budding engineers' ages 8+ complete this 192-piece STEAM kit and will be satisfied knowing that this playtime is both educational, and more importantly, fun!

Ages: 8+

Dimensions: 5.31" x 5.12" x 7.09"

No. of Pieces: 192

Batteries Required: 'AAA' x 4 (not included)
