Robots are in, so ludicrously in. Daft Punk anyone? Blimey. In recognition of the eminent masked duo we decided
to resume our search for cool robot-related stuff. And we’ve got lucky with Cubebot.
Inspired by the Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles (no, us neither), Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot and makes a brilliantly quirky desktop plaything. Cubebot’s powerful hardwood frame can hold countless poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable limbs make him super sturdy. When it’s time for him to rest, just fold him back into a perfect cube.
Oh wait. It's actually really ruddy hard; and with two unique models catering to different levels of dexterity/patience they're guaranteed to keep those idle thumbs very busy indeed.
Intriguing and eye catching, Cubebot is ready to strike a pose whenever your workload/stress levels threaten to tip you over the edge. Irate? Hands on hips. Won a contract? Arms aloft. Tired? Sit down. Been caught fiddling your expenses? Make like a cube and hide in the drawer!
Suitable for ages 3+

I gave this to my little brother who loves these wooden puzzles. He loved it and played with it all day, and puts him into poses on his shelf.
