BrushBots are great for teaching kids about making, working with basic electronics, and thinking outside the box in minimalist "robot" design. Inspired by the original Bristlebot how-to from our friends at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, the BrushBot uses the head of a toothbrush as its body and the bristles as its legs. The hundreds of nylon bristles that would normally clean your teeth twitch and vibrate to make the "bot" bounce along like a nervous little insect. A tiny pager motor and coin cell battery provide the get up and go, and can be disconnected when you're done playing to lengthen the life of the project. The kit comes with the parts you need to build four of your own BrushBots, but you'll also need some wire strippers and a some strong clippers. They're easy to make, fun to personalize, and good, goofy fun to race.
Check out our Party Pack to take your BrushBots to the next, wackier level.
