Who doesn`t like robots? Whether they`re the classic old school ones or the newest top model ones, robots seem to be a trend and here to stay. Zibits
was kind enough to provide me a few of their mini-robots
to check out and share with you!
Zibits mini-sized robots that you can control with the provided mini remote. Every Zibits comes with a name and back story on the packaging, lending each robot its own personality! There are also playsets - including the Power Pod, Z Crane, Z Rail, and Zorr Mine Shaft â€“ so kids can form their own buildable and expandable Zibits communities.

So what do I think of these? They`re fun of course! Sophia is 3 1/2 and loves them. Not sure if it`s because of what they are or because she has a remote to play with them, but either way they still excite her. Although, I do recommend keeping a close eye on young children since these are about maybe just 2" in height. Quality-wise, I must say they are very nicely made and seem like they will uphold quite well over the coming years. The one downfall I did have with these though are that they do require batteries and not the ones you generally keep around the house. The remotes just needed some AAA batteries, no biggie there. The robots themselves needed those small round batteries though that you generally find in watches or such and they require 3 of them, meaning you`ll probably be paying more in batteries than for the toy itself just to get it to work. Once it gets working though, the kids love it. So I think it`s a cool toy, kids love it, just be warned batteries are needed and NOT included so keep this in mind.
Want to get one of these awesome robots? You can go to your local Toys R Us if you`re in the US or go on Amazon.com, which is one of my favorite online shopping sites.
