Robotki Robots has made its triumphant return to the Winter Garden Library in Winter Garden, Florida… for a second time. On display are refurbished toy robots as part of the library’s “steampunk” theme that were created using mash-ups from ThreeA toy robots. Most of the robots on display were refashioned out of existing vinyl robot parts and repainted to look like metal. If you are in Florida come see them in person. They should be on display for the remainder of May… perhaps in to June.
Look for more updates from the Robotki Robots Roadshow soon!

“Yesterday and today, my grandchildren and I made robots, inspired by you! They wanted me to send you a picture. Ours aren’t done as well as yours. I can’t remember what kind of glue you used, but I’m sure it was better than ours, which was a mess. We had a great time! Thanks for the inspiration.” – Christina Williams

Hand’s down, everyone’s favorite animal-based robot ever produced at Robotki Robots. The “Shark-tank” is actually a dixie-cup dispenser, a random tank toy chassis, an alcohol dispenser handle, and a factory-grade sewing machine table spring. Oh, and the teeth…. those are Blackberry keys!
