Welcome to the world of Jimu Robot, an interactive robotic building block system that lets you build, program and then share your own robots with the Jimu Robot community.

Jimu Robot kits come with everything you need to build your robot including the free Jimu Robot app.

Interlocking pieces snap together without needing any tools and the Jimu Robot app gives you 3-D 360˚ animated instructions that make assembly easy. Your robot’s pieces simply snap together by hand, no tools required.

With the MeeBot Kit you can create this adorable robot character. And with the Jimu Robot Animal Add-On Kit you can turn him into 4 different animals: a penguin, a parrot, a walrus or a ferocious T-Rex. Jimu Robot interconnecting parts are interchangeable so you can create just about anything you can imagine and then program it do just about anything you want.

The Jimu Robot app has 3 different ways to make your robot move. You can select a sequence of any of the pre-programmed actions, use the Pose, Record & Playback mode to program custom movements or directly control the action in the Remote Control mode.

The Jimu Robot play pattern is aligned with STEM curriculum and bridges the gap between learning at school and learning at home through a creative and extremely gratifying experience that kids love.

When you’ve finished building and programming your robotic creation you can share it with other Jimu Robot enthusiasts all over the world by uploading photos or video to the Jimu Robot Community found on the app.

      Cute but won't work

      The robot was more complicated to assemble than I thought it would be, making me wonder if a child as young as 8 or 9 could do it. Now that's it's assembled, The robot was more complicated to assemble than I thought it would be, making me wonder if a child as young as 8 or 9 could do it. Now that's it's assembled, I am unable to get the robot to charge and I have no idea why. No online support appears to be available and there are no printed references. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot. Looks like it will be a very expensive desk ornament. Too bad--it's a great idea! Wish I know who to contact!

      Awesome Idea, Shame it won't work.

      We brought 2 of these for our daughters for christmas. We spent hours of fun putting them together as a family, only to be disappointed when we put them on char We brought 2 of these for our daughters for christmas. We spent hours of fun putting them together as a family, only to be disappointed when we put them on charge for a few hours to discover that both battery packs will not charge. i have since been researching online and it seems to be a common problem. Its a real shame as these robots could be awesome fun and education for kids. I am disappointed that a company as big as UBTECH would continue to sell a product with such a huge fault. Apple you may want to discontinue the sale off this product until UBTECH have sorted the problem out.

      Don't buy it

      I bought this as the main present for my daughter for Christmas. What was supposed to be a special gift that we would build together and play with - is still no I bought this as the main present for my daughter for Christmas. What was supposed to be a special gift that we would build together and play with - is still not working two weeks later. The battery doesn't work which I suspect from their website is a common problem. It's not worth the money and has left us very frustrated and disappointed.
