If you’re looking for a new interactive robot toy for the kids, the ActivePuzzle looks like a fun one. It lets users build their own robots that can perform simple tasks or challenges simply by snapping together puzzle pieces.

These interactive puzzle pieces can be pieced together to build fun robots, and your kids will learn some valuable STEM skills while they’re at it. As they are building their little robot, they will learn things like logic, computational thinking, and problem-solving. It’s a pretty cool educational toy.

Each ActivePuzzle kit includes a variety of output blocks, input blocks, logic blocks, and a power block. Sensors like IR, light, temperature, and proximity can be used to control things like a motor, light, buzzer, or an IR transmitter.

You can get in on the robot puzzle fun with a pledge over on Kickstarter. A 16-piece kit sells for $98, while the 122-piece version is going for $122, both a 30% discount from the expected MSRP. Educators can get a special discounted price for quantities of 10 or more advanced kits.
