Thames & Kosmos My Robotic Pet Tumbling Hedgehog – Build Your Own Sound Activated Tumbling, Rolling, Scurrying Pet
With this My Robotic Pet Tumbling Hedgehog model building kit, kiddos can build their own robotic and interactive pet that’ll totally give Sonic a run for his money. So many puns.
This year the trend of building your own interactive toys continues on full steam ahead! We love a toy that helps our kiddos learn without even knowing it. Something tells us if they knew, they’d barely play. Just us? Well, now they’ll be able to build their very own super cute and smart robot pet hedgehog that, well, tumbles and rolls all around with a little round of applause from you or the kids.
Following the 36-page full-color manual and using the 172 simple building pieces in this kit, you can assemble a real robot that looks like a cute Hedgehog. The robot has a built-in sound sensor and is programmed to react to different sounds. After you build it, you can play with it by making different sounds and watching it tumble, roll, spin around, Bristle its spines, and scurry around. Clap once, and the Hedgehog will roll into a ball and tumble backwards. Clap multiple times, and the Hedgehog will count your claps and tumble as many times as you instructed with your claps. You can also get the Hedgehog to Bristle its spines and act in a playful way with different patterns of claps. The Hedgehog eyes light up with LEDs. By building the robot, you will gain experience in the inner mechanical workings that enable the robot to move how it does. Learn about gears, motors, sound sensors, LEDs, and the other components of these funny little pets.
Roll into a fascinating adventure in engineering with the My Robotic Pet Tumbling Hedgehog.
