GIGABOT from Blip Toys was a runner up for the toy of the year this year (2022). Thanks to our friends at Blip Toys we were able to get some to build and review. These things are really cool and I predict they will be one of the most sought after Stocking Stuffers this year. Especially because they’re the perfect shape and you get so much play out of them. Put 3-4 of these inside a stocking and watch the kids play with them for hours.
You Can Build Them Without Instructions
Each GIGABOT contains 33 rebuildable pieces that are easy to build, disassemble, and swap together to create your very own unique GIGABOT. The entire case of the energy core is used in the build! You know those orange chocolate treats that you smash to break apart? These are kind of like that in a way. You need to hit it or pull it apart to get the pieces out. It’s really easy to do. Then when you have all the parts, you just fit them together the best way that makes sense. There are obvious connectors for adults to help kids if they don’t quite get it yet. My eight year old was able to figure it out, but I’m not sure a four five old would. These are recommended for ages 5 and up.
These transform into a thirteen inch tall robot that you can pose and play with. The ball joints are firm enough to be able to play with them and they won’t just fall apart. They may bend, but they won’t just fall out. They’re made to be able to reuse and remake them so it might take a bit of a push to get it in the socket, but you’ll be able to easily enough.
Comes with Weapons and Wires
They each come with an energy sword and blaster. There are rubber chains or wires that you can push into holes located throughout its body, and they give it a really cool effect. Since some of the parts are translucent, it also looks amazing posed in front of a window, they light up and look out of this world!
Collect Them All to Mix and Match!
There is a leader of the GIGABOTS called Hydrobot as well as his companions, Hazbot Scrapbot, Fragbot, Gripbot, and the Evil Blaze Bot! You can collect each one and mix and match parts, creating the ultimate robot adversary.
