How to build a robot suit:

I returned from a climbing trip in Joshua Tree with two very special rocks for my almost 4 year old.  He wanted  a robot suit so he was understandably a bit unimpressed.  So we went to the hardware store and Pippi Longstockings for tights and got to work.

The materials.

The armature.

The bits and pieces come together.  Spray paint is next.

The supervisor of the spray painting process.

The finished product.  Almost.  We still need more buttons and perhaps a set of antenna.  Happy robot building!

      We had a blast building it and I think I have been forgiven for the rocks I brought back from J-Tree.
