A robot has arrived!

Our boy needed a challenge so after much discussion we decided it was time to leave the basic lego kit building behind for a while and enter the world of Robots!!

After work last week, Dave bought Lucas (and himself if we are being honest :D) The Lego Mindstorm. It was pricey but so worth EVERY cent.

Lucas has made it into a robot (see below) a ball shooter, a robogator and next, he has plans for a colour sorter. He has to built it, programmed it (off my laptop) and tested it. Perfect for his mechanical and mathematical brain.

I have put an order in for a housework robot..but that idea always gets an eye roll, so I am guessing not yet!

And the best thing about this robot, we have our boy back!!


  1. Wow, Liss. That looks fabulous. I have a soon to be 8 year old who might also thrive with one of those!

  2. OOhh Samuel would be jealous.... so guess who won't be showing him, for the moment at least LOL.
    Have you seen this link? It's dropped off a lot since i last checked it, but down on the bottom righthand side they have ongoing challenges - some neat ideas for brains in a funk :)
    Hope you are all well.
