Wind Up Workshop Robots

Finding the perfect gift for your boss isn't easy – unless, of course, your boss is the editor of a parenting magazine who happens to love wind-up toys. Metro Parent's executive editor Julia Elliott has an assortment of them in her office – and now, she can add a few more wind-ups to her collection with the Wind Up Workshop Robots.

Wind-ups are so cool – and what makes this kit even cooler is that it allows your kid to build his own mini version of R2-D2. If your child shares the love of wind-ups and robots with my boss, this mini workshop is the perfect addition to his holiday gifts this year.

Manufactured by Creativity for Kids – which has been around since 1976 and prides itself in creating innovative products that stimulate creativity and encourage open-ended play – this kit is just one of the company's many make-your-own items. But it's by far one of the most fun. Plus, robots are hot!

Selling for $14.99, the kit includes five wind-up mechanisms, robot cutouts, cardboard robot pieces, stickers, sticky foam squares and cubes, eyes and markers. The set also includes instructions and ideas to help kids create robots in different colors and shapes.

Purchase your workshop robots online at CreativityForKids.com or in select Target stores. Once you've made your robot, wind it up and let it go!
