About the Little Robot Shop

Welcome to Little Robot Shop, your one-stop destination for all things robotics. I’m Matt, the founder of this site, and I’m thrilled that you’re here to learn more about us. Established in 2017, my mission is to provide our readers with the latest news, reviews, and insights into the world of domestic robots. Whether you’re a robotics enthusiast, a professional, or just curious about the field, you’ll find something of interest here at Little Robot Shop.

Robots for the home kids and more

Robots come in all shapes and sizes, from a large arm that can perform complex surgery with incredible accuracy to little cockroaches to entertain your cat (we have one of those for sale, I’ll let you guess which!).

We aim to have a bit of everything here, focusing on educational robots for children. However, we recognize that kids come in all shapes, sizes, and ages, so we have robots to keep big kids happy too, even pets.

As well as the above, we have some of those amazing domestic robots to help around the home and make everyone’s life a little easier and be sure also to check the gifts section where we will have a wide range of robot-inspired gifts from memorabilia to robot blankets.

As a family of 2 full-time working parents and 2 little kids, time is precious, so anything I can find to ease the burden of day-to-day household chores is alright by me.

When it comes to the kids, I’m a massive believer that coding will be an essential skill for the future. Hence a big part of this site is also dedicated to robot learning toys, as I’m keeping to give my littlies the opportunity to learn coding concepts through play.

This site is actually a passionate hobby of mine. I love to tinker with robots and learn about them. I also have a full-time job working as a Product Manager for a tech company, working closely with amazing developers (looking at you Rob and Tim), while not being one myself, it blows my mind what they can do.

But more about the site…

How can this site help me find the right robot?

It is hard knowing what to buy, sites like Amazon or Best Buy will have reviews, but they are often not helpful. They are one person’s viewpoint who often may not really know much about the product.

And, the chances are, you’re a busy person, so you don’t have time to spend hours looking at all the robot vacuums on the market or learning what the latest coding trend is.

Luckily, that’s where my team and I come in.

My site is a solid mix of reviews, comparisons, and top 10 lists of many different categories of robots. From robot vacuums to robotic window cleaners, educational kits for kids to toys for pets, if it is robotic and either fun, helpful, educational, or all three, my team and I are all over it.

Core Values

At Little Robot Shop, we believe in making robotics accessible to everyone. We strive to present complex information in an easy-to-understand format, ensuring that our readers can make informed decisions about their robotics purchases. Our content creation process is meticulous, with a strong emphasis on accuracy, relevance, and user-friendliness. We pride ourselves on our unique approach to delivering high-quality content that stands out in the digital landscape.

Why Trust Us?

As experienced roboteers, we can see through the marketing BS, such as “hypersuction” or “geniuslink” and see the technology behind the words. Our comparisons and reviews are based on hours and hours of research, reading, watching videos, and really understanding the robot to create crowdsourced information that you can trust. We believe that when the research is done diligently, you can write great reviews without having the actual product. In many ways, we believe they will be better due to the wide-ranging views and opinions you have to balance up.

Defining the Best

The term “best” is subjective and can mean different things to different people. For instance, the best robot vacuum for a small apartment with hardwood floors may not be the best for a large house with multiple pets and carpeting. That’s why we take a comprehensive approach to our reviews and comparisons, considering a wide range of factors such as functionality, price, user-friendliness, and more. We aim to provide options that cater to different needs and budgets, ensuring that you can find the “best” product for your specific situation.

How Does the Shop Work?

We are an affiliate shop, which means that if you click on one of the buy buttons, you will be taken to Amazon or a different online retailer to make your purchase. If you buy a product found on our site, we make a small commission from the sale at no extra cost to you. This is usually between 3-7% but changes depending on the product or store.

A Few Of My Favorite Posts

We’ve created a vast array of content over the years, but there are a few posts that we’re particularly proud of. [place image here]

  1. What Should I Name My Robot Vacuum?“: I had far too much fun writing this, and I’m proud to see many of my original ideas being used. Bruce Springclean, Optimus Grime, Clean Elizabeth the Second, c’mon, it’s just a bit of punny fun.
  2. “Best Programmable Robot Kits For Adults”: Because you’re never too old to start learning about robotics, and there are some AMAZING kits out there at the moment!
  3. Robot Toys For Toddlers“: Where it all started. My little ones are starting to grow up now, not really toddlers anymore, but I still love this as it is where my journey began.

I invite you to explore these posts and more on my blog page to delve into the fascinating world of robotics with us.
