“There are a lot of Robot Kits and Toys out there. But they all are basically RC cars or just have a few pre-recorded motions that get old. We wanted to make a robot that really seemed alive and spontaneous. And we did it. LittleBot Buddy is the 9th robot that we have made. We have been working to make robotics and STEM exciting and fun. And it hasn’t changed with Buddy. Except now anyone can enjoy this robot. Whether you are a builder or not. You can just “hang out” with Buddy. “
