Robot Love

[Not sure why the fonts are freaking out tonight in blogger.
Sorry for the inconsistent fonts & sizes in this post.]

My 8 year old is
really into robots. Early on it was Buzz Lightyear, later Iron Giant. He likes to build robots out of legos and found objects, draw them, read about them -- anything that has to do with robots, he's into it. So this evening, while Dad and Sis are at Middle School orientation we thought we'd have a little fun online hunting up interesting robots on etsy. You'll immediately notice that my son likes happy robots, not mean scary ones. I'm glad for that! Hope you enjoy our robot treasure hunt:

Note: I plan to do themed treasure hunts on etsy from time to time, writing posts featuring handmade artisans and their fabulous wares. I encourage you to buy handmade, supporting your friends, neighbors and fellow crafters.
