3rd birthday Gift Guide and Giveaway - Design and Drill Robot

Its day 4 of Lily's gift Guide and giveaway and today we have a toy which is from Learning Resources. 

Lily and I really enjoy toys that are very hands on and this toy is exactly that. 

Its the Design and Drill Robot and we were sent one to try out. 



As soon as Lily saw it in the box she got excited straight away and shouted "ROBOT!". Lily is a really big fan of robots and loves anything to do with them. She is also a big fan of fixing things lately and so this is a really good toy for her. The robot is displayed in the box so you can touch and see the robot straight away and so she could not wait for me to get it out for her. 


The robot is really colourful with its blue and green body and also has a friendly smile on its face. It is recommended for children aged 3 plus and makes the perfect birthday gift. Especially if your looking for a toy that provides hands on education as well as fun. 

The idea behind the toy is that you take the different coloured screws and use the screw driver to screw them into the robot. You use the different colours to make different designs. 

The robot comes with 15 plastic bolts in a variety of colours and the screwdriver which is in 2 parts and you have to put together. It also comes with stickers so them you can customise your robot and make it look even more colourful.


As I mentioned above, this toy is full of educational opportunities. Using the screw driver means that you are using fine motor skills and also placing the screws in the robot works on your child's hand and eye co-ordination. There is also the fact that its great for your child's imagination. The robots head, arms and body swivels making a chance for imaginative play when making your robot move around. This toy is also great for developing matching skills and making patterns.

Lily loved this toy and she did really well with the screw driver. At first she asked for my help but as soon as I showed her that she could do it by holding her hand too, she sat and did it all by herself. She has really got a good grasp on how to hold the screwdriver now to be able to turn it. But she did also love using her hands to put in the screws, which is also really good for her motor skills.

You can also remove the arms of the robot by taking out the 2 screws and then placing the screws back in to fix them back on. Which is great for problem solving skills.




She loved that she got to choose where each colour of screw went and thought it was great that you gave the robot eyes. Later in the day she took this toy to her daddy to play with as she knows he loves fixing things too. In fact I think that is where she has got her fascination for it from. We also loved placing the stickers on and he looked great when finished. Although I must warm you the stickers are tricky to get off when on and so they need to be placed on carefully.

Over all this is a really good toy and the quality of the plastic is brilliant. Very durable and you can tell it wont break easily.


You can buy this toy for a very reasonable price of £12.95 which I think is a bargain for the fun and education you get from it. It also makes the perfect price for a gift.

You can buy your very own design and drill robot here from the Learning Resource Website.
