Recycled Robots 10 Robot Projects That You Can Make from the Junk in Your Room by Robert Malone

Ever wish you could magically turn the junk in your room into something cool - like a robot? Well, now you can, with this book full of step-by-step instructions on how to repurpose your old legos, tinkertoys, scotch tape dispensers, and bits and pieces of old toys to make cool robots! Best of all, with the wind-up mechanisms included in the kit, or powered by your old remote control cars, you can make your robots move. Recycled Robots gives detailed photographic instructions for how to make your own Redbot, Weebot, Cupbot, Botoid, Polybot, Sweetbot, Armorbot, Hopbod, Boxbot, and Bigbot. But these bots are just the beginning. Part of the fun of making a robot is designing it yourself, after all. So kids are encouraged to use the robots detailed in the book as a launching point for their own recycled robot creations. Recycled Robots also teaches readers about the history of robots, as well as how robots are being used today, and offers a glimpse into how robots may be used in the future.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
