Whether you have a child who loves robots, or if you’re a geek parent like I am, you’ll love to build your own robots with Papertoy Glowbots! It’s a book of 46 robots, with the parts printed on card stock, with instructions and stickers for each model. Trust me, you’ll quickly work your way through this book!
Origami meets amazing creatures in a book of paper craft fun!
Papertoy Glowbots introduces 46 robots that have the added cool factor of lighting up, whether using glow-in-the-dark stickers that come with the book or light sources like flashlights, Christmas tree lights, and electric tea lights.
The 46 die-cut paper robots are created by Brian Castleforte, author of Papertoy Monsters, along with the hottest papertoy designers from around the world. Meet the robots and read about their entertaining backstories in the front, then turn to the card stock section in the back to build them. The templates are die-cut and ready to pop out, fold, and glue. Bold, colorful graphics ensure the robots look as amazing in the daytime as they do with the lights off.
First off, unlike building regular robots using metal parts and motors, the basic process is to pop out the pieces, fold, and then glue them together. You don’t need special tools either, just some glue or double stick tape. The instructions are pretty clear and as you follow them, you see the fun robots come to life.
Secondly, you can take this book almost anywhere to work on. Whether you have extra time at the library or when you’re waiting for a sibling’s soccer practice to finish up.
And each robot has a back story to read, explaining about the history or interesting facts.
There are several levels of difficulty, depending on the age and skill level of the builder and they can all be used at night once they are built. Some are decorated with glow in the dark stickers (included in the book) or by setting them over a flashlight or nightlight!
This is a great way to work with your child as it comes to following instructions, team work, and yes, even patience. When you build your own robots with Papertoy Glowbots, you can have fun while you learn and you have robots to play with too! Buy your copy at Amazon today.
