Add a set of arms that wiggle as it walks — or design your own with custom arm connectors. Then learn about the incredible engineering behind other real-life robots that walk just like yours. Ready? Legs get to it!

Behind the design

Because we had such a blast prototyping different arm designs, we decided to add customizable arm connectors so users could join in the creative fun!

We got a crawling robot from someone and some instruction was missing. I emailed KiwiCo to send us a video or any online instructions. They didn’t have anything, so they sent me a whole new kit for free. It was so sweet and generous of them! My 10 year old was thrilled, and you just gained a new customer, because we will order more kits in the future. Thanks again!
