We tend to think of big machines that build stuff, and robots we see in movies that are just too cool to be real.
Robots are in our life every day, even if we don’t realize it – everything from pool vacuums to toys for our children.
Today, I’ve noticed more and more teachers using robotics in their classroom to teach their students and I can understand why.
Robots are a great way to capture children’s attention and teach them.
The robots that are being used in classrooms may not shoot lasers, but they are quickly gaining popularity and a great tool to use.
On another note, robotics can be a fun way to push your children towards STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects.
While there are many cool robots currently on the market, there’s one that is coming out that your children may be interested in – it’s called the Boxer Robot.
About the Boxer Robot from Spin Master
The Boxer Robot has some pretty cool tech features, but his personality is something that really stands out from the crowd …his personality is really cool.
He has sensors on his sides, which make it so that he can easily follow your hand while in “follow me” mode.
Along with being able to follow your hand, he also comes with a handy remote control that will allow you to take control of him.
From there, the user can drive him around, race against their friends.
Yes, I just said racing …up to three of these robots will be able to race together, so the robots will be able to interact with one another.
Boxer Robot Plays Games
The robots also have different games that you can play – I believe there are a total of 10 games.
One of the games involves battling each other, which is neat.
There’s also a tank game where they kind of shoot at each other using the trick shots that are on the remote.
If one gets hit, it’ll fall over, which is an indicator that it has been hit.
It comes with a game activation feature card – on the card, there’s bar codes.
Set the card on the table with the bot in front of it, the bot will automatically scan over it and activate the game on the card.

The little ones are going to get a kick out of watching him do some really cool tricks, like wheelies.
When you pick him up and shake him, he will get very dizzy, which becomes obvious when you set him back down.
Check out also what Forbes says about it here:
“Although I found the Cool Maker Kumikreator Bracelet Studio mesmerising, it was the new Boxer robot that stole the show for me. Boxer is an interactive robot that will fit in your pocket. Utilising technology I’d previously only seen in the larger Zoomer range of toys, Boxer can balance on his back wheels and display a range of adorable pixelated expressions.
Spin Master unveils robotic pets, breakthrough drone sports, new Hatchimals variants, mechanical bracelet weavers and a bunch of wonderfully gross toys that kids will love. It’s an impressive bunch of irreverent, inventive toys that will continue its reputation for disrupting the toy world with new ideas.”
