This robot will tumble, fumble and stumble, but it always finds a way to right itself. The moment kids turn it on, Roly Poly speeds away on its two cyclonic wheels. The engineering genius behind this well-thought-out machine enables it to get on its “feet” whenever it tumbles and then continue on its new path of exploration. After assembling one worm gear and fewer than 20 parts, this mechanical marvel is ready to amuse. Kids can place original artwork or pictures that Roly Poly comes with inside its dome.
— Jude LaRene, owner of Seattle’s Izilla Toys, said, “though they are challenging [to put together], they are super fun and educational.
— “These are still selling strong, and for a last-minute gift, nothing can beat it,” touted Maxine Golden, assistant manager of Fun, Fun, Fun in Washington, D.C.
— Dotty Holden of Toy Rapture in Chicago had been waiting all year to sell these at Christmas. “They’ve done well so far, but I know they’re going to fly off the counter at Christmas. They’re perfect for science-minded kids."

OWI introduces a self-contained arena for its highly acclaimed OWIKITS. The Robot Rink is an exciting way to “celebrate” and demonstrate students’ robot construction. The individual or multiple robotics interaction arena is lightweight, tough, and classroom tested.
Made of a durable, high-density styrene plastic construction. OWI’s Robot Rink is 44 inches in diameter, 3 inches high and will collapse into a compact 8-inch diameter coil for easy storage. The smart-lock joint resists separation, but also allows for multiple rinks to be attached for a mondo robot plaza. It’s perfect for robot experimentation at home, school, museums, and summer camp environments. The mini instructions will provide suggestions for robot applications, such as: single or multiple crash-action robots, tracks inside or outside the Robot Rink , great for avoiding type robots, containment of projectiles, and how about a robot soccer game?
Easy to assemble; it’s as simple as uncoiling and connecting the open ends. Voila… Let’s get ready to R O B O T! Suggested Selling Price: $24.95
