GIVEAWAY and Review : Brush Robot from The Toadstool

The Toadstool sent us this fantastic Brush Robot kit to test out as one of their Toadtesters. Daddy loves gadgets and building things, so it was no surprise to see him get stuck in with the kids! So I'm going to let him write up the review, too... Remember there is a giveaway at the end of this post, too, so read the review and don't forget to enter to win a kit of your own!

The Brush Robot is a battery-powered robot that you build yourself following the instructions provided in the kit. Everything you need, including the brushes, is included. The only thing you need to add is two AAA batteries. 
We love toys that have educational value, and learning about circuits and robots provided the children with fantastic science knowledge. Impressively, the instruction booklet had a section entitled 'Fun Facts' and it was truly fascinating to find out how the Brush Robot is an example of a 'vibrobot' and finding out more about the functional uses of this type of robot in real-life situations.

Building the robot was very straightforward, with just a small crosshead screwdriver needed. The kit is intended for children aged over 8, so both the boys were able to get involved although a little bit of help might be needed to hold parts still for little hands to fix together.

The finished robot is a quirky little character (now called Bobo in our household!) who vibrates and moves along when switched on. He looks great as he is, but if you wanted to personalise him you could add stickers or paint the wooden brush. 
The Brush Robot offers great value for money as it is a science kit as well as a toy when completed, so it provides both an activity for children to do as well as a final toy to play with. It is competitively priced and available from The Toadstool. This would make a fantastic birthday gift for school friends birthdays.
