While crayons and other drawing utensils are often enough to fuel a child's imagination for hours on end, Makers Toolbox creates kits that can be transformed into drawing robots that will capture even more of their attention.

The 'Scribbler Robot' begins as a flat cardboard piece and a handful of wires. Once the project is finished, kids will walk away with a greater knowledge of electrical components and a functional toy that they'll have created themselves. Since the cardboard body remains plain even after crafting, there's the potential for lots of embellishments and customizations to be added so that kids truly feel like the bot is their own.

The battery-powered drawing robot has four legs that are made of drawing tools, meaning that this toy is capable of creating some amazing artwork on its own.
