DIY Toy Robot
Introduce junior DIYers to the joys of woodworking with a colourful robot they can build themselves.
Gun Arvidssen bought his handy son Atreiiu a Colorifc Wood Worx Robot kit from Bunnings.
‘There are lots of cool ways to give kids a taste for DIY but this easy-to-assemble timber robot is one of the best,’ says Gun.
‘The instructions are clear and it’s built with adhesive and dowels, so no tools are required. It’s a complete kit featuring a range of decals and paint colours for an exciting finish, with even the paintbrush included.
‘It’s a great project for introducing children to woodworking, giving them the satisfaction of building a functional toy with next to no help from an adult. Plus strategic joints are articulated so the robot is posable.’
To buy a Colorific Wood Worx kid head to the Colorific website, or visit your local Bunnings store.
