Cubebot - small multi-coloured
At last, cool robot toys that aren't made of plastic and no batteries required! Inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, Cubebots are brilliant, moveable robots made of beech wood. Cubebots's powerful hardwood frame can hold dozens of poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make him impervious to breakage. When it's time for him to rest, he folds into a perfect cube.
Dimensions: 6.75 inches tall with 9.25 inch arm span (at play); 2.5 x 2.5 inch cube (at rest).
This is the bigger version of the cubebots.
These little chaps are designed for ages 3+ but we think they'll be just as popular with grown-ups.
