How to Make a Walking Robot out of Cardboard

Learn how to make a walking robot out of cardboard. In this video I show you how I built a wind up robot model from a cardboard construction toy set. With a small motor inside the model, the robot waddles and walks in the most goofiest way. It’s truly a thing of beauty.

The making process also wasn’t an easy ride and well… mistakes were made… several times. Enjoy! ^_^

Making a Dancing Paper Robot – A Lesson in Persistence

In the second part of my Build a Robot mini-series you’ll see me attempt to make a dancing robot called a Wiggle Bot. This primitive cardboard construction toy is a fun paper craft project for kids to make – but PERSISTENCE is key!

WAVE BOT – Building a Cardboard Robot – Part 3

In the final part of my 3 part mini series I assemble Wave Bot, a comical cardboard model from the Build a Robot book and construction set by Templar Publishing. Wave Bot is a robotic caped crusader that loves to dance and have fun with his friends Wiggle Bot and Walk Bot.

Wave Bot is constructed from printed pre-cut cardboard pieces and a simple plastic wind-up motor. The set of three ‘Build a Robot’ toys would make a great gift for kids – just don’t expect them to work perfectly!
