Toca Robot Lab

Build your own robot with Toca Robot Lab! With all the tools and materials you need, Toca Robot Lab let kids get creative.

Make your dream robot by mixing odd pieces found around the house, scrap metal and junk. What was once a TV can now make a perfect head, and a rusty gear becomes a leg. Choose a body, head, arms and legs and put it together as you prepare to take off!

Once completed, you can test your robot in our state of the art test flight facility. Collect stars and knock over blocks while zooming around the robot track. Find the giant magnet and get your Toca Robot Lab test report. Was it approved? All systems go? Nice work! Now make a brand new robot and do it all again! With Toca Robot Lab you’ll never run into the same robot twice.
