Ollibots Wooden Robots

I’ve had these Ollibots on my list of gifts to make since I first saw them over the summer, and I’m excited to give Jackson a set for Christmas this year.

These wooden robots are a great “homemade” gift because the artwork is provided for you (in case that’s not your thing), and assembling the robots is fairly easy as long as you know how to use scissors and glue. Which doesn’t take away from how cute the final robots are or how many possibilities they offer for play, whether it’s mixing or matching  colors, building your own robot or bringing them to life with silly voices and poses.

A couple things to keep in mind:

  • If you don’t have a laser printer, you’ll want to get the pages printed at a print shop since the ink from inkjet printers is likely to bleed when you apply the Mod Podge.
  • I would estimate that it is taking me approximately an hour per robot to assemble these. The most tedious part of the process, in my opinion, is actually cutting out the artwork. There are 25-30 individual pieces for each robot and you want to cut carefully.
  • The instructions include details for which wood pieces you’ll need to purchase. I spent $32, including shipping, on the supplies to make 6 robots, but you could easily give each of the robots as a gift by itself if you’re looking for a frugal gift.

  1. These are adorable. My grandson has been robot crazy for about 9 months now, he just turned 3. He started his craze after a move to a new house. There were empty boxes available at various times and he figured out for him all he needed to do was to put a box over his head and that was costume enough to be a robot. He would go through the house saying in a monotone voice, “I am a Robot.” He also bumped into walls, doors, furniture, etc. just like a robot would who had no guidance control, he didn’t either being to young to think about such essentials as eye holes. Thank you so much for leading me to this treasure Mandi! I can’t tell you how much I look forward everyday to your posting. This is a wonderful series.
