FOR THE OLDER KIDS, STEM EDUCATION IS WHERE IT'S AT!

Written by Amy-Jo Murray

Time to get those tweems off their devices and into some robotic fun! Your child won't even realise they are actually learning and developing their science, mathematics, technology and engineering skills.

At Kidstuff, our Vex and Hexbug ranges provide robotic toys that will keep your young engineers busy for hours!

Hexbug Scarab & Beetle

These bug-like robots move and behave just like their real life counterparts! They'll delight even the faintest of hearts. Scarabs are the high energetic bug robot that scurries around with speed and motions. The beetle on the other hand is a lot calmer and gently wonders around. If it bumps into an obstacle it will reverse and change directions - it even gets startled by noises!

Hexbug Battle Tarantula 2 pack

Let the battle begin! Watch these creepy crawlers go head to head with futuristic sound effects and astonishing life-like movements! complete with high-tech infrared technology that can "fire" and impact sensors that measure each strike. These are bound to provide endless hours of fun!

Vex Robotics Catapult

Inspire your child's inner Einstein with building their very own working catapult - all while learning both traditional and new ways of thinking and problem solving. Watch them go on their building journey as they put this kit together. The look of achievement on their faces would make anyone a proud parent.

Vex Robotics Zip Flyer

This award-winning construction kit will provide your young robotics enthusiasts with hands-on STEM learning. Put together this gadget and shoot propellers over 30 feet in the air! The faster the zip-cord stick is pulled, the higher the propellers go!
