VEX Robotics make great gifts

A few years back we were sitting around and a show on battling robots came on. My kids could not get enough of it. They loved seeing all the behind the scenes workings of the robots. They were intrigued with the building and designing of each one. My one son even attended a workshop to build robots and compete against others. He really enjoyed it.

Having four kids I see every day how they are so different from each other. Two of them love to take things apart and build anything they can. They can fix anything that is broken and enjoy learning.

I know these two will enjoy receiving the VEX Robotics for Christmas this year.
