Great Gift Ideas for Boys for Christmas – Make Your Own Robot Kit
A Make Your Own Robot Kit is perfect for boys who like to know why and how everything works. Homemade robot kits are very educational. They teach Science in a practical and fun way. Boys won’t even know they are learning.
They will make great Christmas Gifts for this holiday season or for a birthday or any other special occasion.
We recently gave our boy a Make Your Own Brush Robot Kit and he loves it. I love it too. My only complaint? I will need to have dozens on these little brush robots to help me scrub my floors clean.
On the right is my own picture of the robot.
Make Your Own Brush Robot – This will make a great gift for the boy who is interested in Science and How Stuff Works
Christmas came early for my boy this year. He did well in his school examinations so we allowed him to choose one toy at the toy shop. He scorned at all the toys in the shop. “I have outgrown toys mom. They are too childish for me.” he declared.
Then he selected this Robot out of several Make Your Own Robot Kits. Well, actually, I helped him decided because I thought it looked rather adorable and I thought it could help me do some brushing around the house. 😉
The Robot is not that easy to assemble but we did it finally. I helped him to put together most of it. He got to stick on the googly eyes, tighten some screws, bent the wires and fix the brush. That was good enough for him. He was fascinated with the robot.
The robot works on the principle of vibrating motors. I learned a thing about two about the Science of vibration. I also got to explain about circuits and how to make a complete circuit to him and my boy got to insert the batteries in our completed Robot and hit the switch. He carefully inserted the batteries the right way round and was very proud of it.
Older boys will enjoy fixing this on their own. This Make Your Own Brush Robot Kit makes a great educational Christmas gift for younger boys with supervision and older boys to explore.
Doodling Robot Kit
We saw this Doodling Robot Kit and I thought it would be great fun for the kids too. Besides learning about Science, they get to have a few laughs too. They can make patterns and get creative by using different colored pens. A very nice gift for boys this Christmas.
Make Your Own Smart Robot – A Smart Robot that moves like it has a brain
Do you know how one of those iRobot Vacumn Cleaner Cleaners work?
If you don’t, you can get one of this Smart Make Your Own Robot Kit. It works using the same principle as the iRobot smart vacumn cleaner. Why not get the boy a Smart Make Your Own Robot and his mom the smart iRobot Vacumn cleaner? They do make a perfect pair for a Christmas gift for both mother and son.
Transforming Solar Robot – Can’t get enough of transformers?
Now boys can make their own transformer Robots with this Make your own Solar Powered Transforming Robot. Isn’t it cool? It will be a very nice gift for the Transformers fan.
Make Your Own Robotic Dog for Boys
Have you heard of Hasbro’s i-Dog Robotic Music Loving Canine? This robotic dog moves and grooves to the beat with an expressive face and 7 multicolored lights. It will make a really nice Christmas Gift for a boy. Even big boys will love this one as a Christmas gift.
However, I like to make my own Robotic Dog. It doesn’t dance like the i-Dog can but it can transform into an airboat, windmill, and two planes and it is powered on solar powered. Definitely a savings on my pocket for energy draining batteries and it will teach the boy a thing or two about the benefits of solar energy.
Make Your Own Remote Control Arm and Machines
This Christmas surprise your boy with a Make Your Own Remote Control Machines Set. It will provide hours of fun for the older boy.
For the younger boy, it is best to stick to a simple Make Your Own Robotic Arm Kit.
Make Your Own Robotic Insects and Other Unusual Make Your Own Robotic Kits
This one is supposed to be a grasshopper solar powered kit. It looks a little too much like a cockroach so I will give this one a miss. However boys may find this amusing.
You can make just about anything with robotics. These educational kits are great gifts for boys who have “outgrown” little boy toys like mine has.
