"We need more kids apps like Robot Factory" — WIRED

Use the Siri Remote to play and test your robots. Run, jump, and fly around a world full of rockslides, geysers, and other obstacles. Dance under the disco ball. Test or wreck your robots. Build more robots on your iPhone or iPad (with a matching iCloud account) and they will sync automatically to Apple TV.

The Robot Factory is the first app in Tinybop’s Digital Toys, a series of open-ended building apps that let kids ages 6+ create, test, play with, and collect whatever they can imagine. The series also includes The Monsters and The Everything Machine, an App Store Editors’ Choice and Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice.
