Bot Garage app review — The Horn Book

“David A. Carter and Noelle Carter’s Bot Garage app (Random House/Smashing Ideas, 2011), a companion to their 2011 counting pop-up book Lots of Bots, invites users to recreate the wacky robots showcased in the book and create their own inventions.

Build a robot by selecting from a gallery of ten brightly colored options for each bot part: torso, head, arms, and “legs” (some of which are actually wheels or rocket blasters). Then “add some flair” with spare parts such as a robot dog, microphone, clock, and bicycle horn. All of the parts differ in design and function, illustrated by a brief animation, so the combinations are virtually endless.”
