Who says unicorns don’t exist? Your kids will have a blast proving that they do when they build their own pet version with the STEM-focused Build A Bot Unicorn. Kids can hone their robotics skills by following the glossy, kid-friendly directions for assembling the 20 numbered pieces to build this innovative motorized toy. Like all robots, putting the parts together requires attention to detail, especially when assembling the motor. Younger kids may need adult help, but older kids can master it on their own. Once it’s built, customize the adorable plastic unicorn with stickers to add a unique design. Then clap—the toy is sound activated—to see the unicorn gallop forward. The unicorn can be taken apart and reassembled, or kids can mix-and-match pieces with one of the other animals in this line to create a new Bot creature.
