Robot toys are usually made of plastic and require batteries – but not the Cubebot family! Inspired by the Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot achieved by fusing ancient Japanese traditions with contemporary toy culture.
Cubebots's hardwood frame can hold many poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make him impervious to breakage. When it’s time for him to rest, he folds into a perfect cube. An enduring classic that will withstand generations of play.
The Micro Cubebot is the same shape as the Cubebot Original, only...more micro.
Other members of the family are the big siblings Cubebot Julien, identified by his peaked head and very long legs, and Cubebot Guthrie, who has a distinctly trapezoidal head and muscular proportions. There’s even Big Daddy, a special extra large Limited Edition Cubebot signed by the designer. Each bot folds up into a cube but in its own special way. You can find the whole family in the related products section of the page (because we don’t believe in breaking up a home).
