W (my 5-year-old) and I worked on this one together. He still needs quite a bit of help with the projects, but he loves working on them.

The April 2017 Kiwi Crate theme was “Robots and Coding” and included three projects: “Robot Buddy,” “Wind-Up Robot” and “Rabbot’s Rules.”

Project #1 – Robot Buddy

The first project was Robot Buddy.  It included all of the materials necessary to build and decorate your own friendly robot pal.  It’s low on the messiness scale and low on the grownup involvement scale.

We loved this one!  It was simple and turned out so cute.  The robot doesn’t “do” anything, but W loves him.

Project #2 – Wind-Up Robot

The second project we worked on was Wind-Up Robot.  It included all of the necessary materials to create a rabbit robot with a customizable track to run along.  It was low on the messiness scale and medium on the grownup involvement scale.

Part A was to build the track.  The box included an assembly frame and two assembly jigs.  That gives you the ability to get each piece of your track absolutely perfect.  The straight line jig worked perfectly, but we did have to make some adjustments to the curved jig.

I didn’t have any issues making the “rabbot.”  The instructions were clear and easy to follow.

Project #3 – Rabbot’s Rules

The third (and final) project was Rabbot’s Rules. It involved writing programs to solve puzzles and send your robot along a path. It was low on the messiness scale and medium on the grownup involvement scale.

W (and his older brother L) had a ball playing with this! They liked it even more than I originally thought they would actually. You know it’s a good Kiwi Crate project when they are still playing with it days later!
