Robots for kids have improved significantly in recent years. Gone are the days where a robot toy was a wind-up tin machine, replaced by educational robot toys with sensory development in mind and many that teach kids coding and STEM or STEAM skills from an early age. Skills that will be essential in the future of our world.
