What Does Little E Love About The Little Tikes STEM Jr Builder Bot?

Little E absolutely loves this the Little Tikes Builder Bot. As soon as we opened the box and she saw what he could do she wanted to escape with him and play. At first, I think Little E struggled with putting the parts together correctly but she soon got the hang of it. They click into place quite simply with a little bit of pressure.

Little E really did have so much fun with this little robot and you can see her first reactions before escaping to play in the video below.

What Do We Love About The Little Tikes STEM Jr Builder Bot?

I love Little E’s enthusiasm for this toy. She has played with it on many occasions with and without the experiment cards. The experiment cards are a great way to push your child to think outside the box. Using the experiment cards through play your children will be learning about engineering, mechanics, physics, and force.

The Builder Bot is perfect for little hands and with the easy click-together design this robot is perfect for pre-school children. I’m sure this toy will give them hours of interchangeable fun.

I love that Little Tikes want to give young children the chance to learn about science, technology, engineering, and maths. It will help to prepare them for these types of activities at school. If your child is a born builder and problem solver this really is the toy for them.
