The Best STEM Toy for Girls (or Boys)
Thank you UBTECH for sponsoring this post. JIMU Robots are a fun way to bring robotics into kid’s day to day and make the perfect gift you can feel good about gifting to the children in your lives this holiday season!
Unicorns do exist, and this UnicornBot kit from JIMU Robots proves it! My 11 1/2 -year-old daughter loves educational toys that challenge her little brain. In fact, this girl loves to learn new things and prefers to watch trivia shows, and documentaries over typical kid shows.
She is so not like I was when I was a kid, and takes after her engineer daddy. I was more of the pop culture, artsy type that loved to learn the latest celeb scoop, but my oldest is all about school, learning, and inventing things. That is why this year for Christmas, she is getting a ton of educational gifts that can help to expand her intelligence, and play on her love for coding.
STEM Christmas gifts that allow children to code, learn, and invent from companies like UBTECH are ideal for kids like Kenzi.
What I really love about toys like this is that they can be done together as a family. Move over puzzles and standard board games because robots are so much cooler to piece together and challenge each other with.
When our award-winning JIMU Robots UnicornBot arrived, my daughter was so eager to build it–even my son wanted in on the action.
Inside the box, the kit includes over 400 snap-together parts and fasteners. Plus, you get the following:
- 2 Smooth motion robotic servo motors
- 1 DC Motor
- 1 RGB light
- 1 Color sensor
- 1 Main control box
- 8 Color cards
- 1 USB cable and quick start guide included
This kit is unlike most DIY robot kits in that you have to actually use the free JIMU app to get the 3D, 360° animated instructions. The app is available for iOS or Android device so it worked out well with our phones.
It took us 4 solid hours to put together this UnicornBot, but the experience and reward of putting together such an intricate, interactive toy made it all worthwhile.
My daughter loved every single moment of working primarily with her father on this project.
When they were done with the build, my daughter had fun making her UnicornBot trot, and shine its horn. She has not tried to code her own custom actions for her bot yet, but I know when she has more time to spend with it she will. The best part is, thanks to the app playtime with JIMU Robots is ongoing and endless!
JIMU Robots make the perfect gift for all kids this holiday season. Be sure to check out ‘em out at Target! Their robots come in different series to appeal to all types of interests.
