This Explorer Kit is the perfect starter kit with 5 pre-designed characters. It includes 7 servos and 372 pieces so you can use your imagination to create new codeable creatures and robots. Build the BabyBot, T-Rex, Walrus, Parrot and more…Jimu means 'building blocks' in Mandarin. It is an interactive system of robotic building blocks.
