#1 Cubelet kits
An all-time Génération Robots favourite! Cubelets are fun and fascinating magnetic cubes you can use to create a robot with no knowledge of programming (it’s the position of your cubes that will create the program).
How your robot behaves depends simply on how you assemble your cubes. Each Cubelet performs one mission, and one mission only.
