KEEP IT LIGHT.Big or heavy materials will drag your Droid down!

SCAVENGE FOR MATERIALS.Make sure they're similar in size & weight to your Droid's original parts.

ATTACH NEW ITEMS.Use the cone-shaped neck as a base for attaching a new head, and attach your Droid's new body to the body base and internal structure. Use tape or twist ties for additional security.

GET CRAFTY.Give your Droid defining features using craft materials such as milk cartons, fabric felt pieces, masking tape, tissue paper, pipe cleaners & more.

TEST & RECORD YOUR FINDINGS.See if your Droid's new body or head makes it move or behave differently.

HAVE FUN WITH THE MOTORS AND ARMS!The arms can attach to the motors in different ways, and the motors can attach to any of the mounting holes. Try changing up the orientation and placement of both.

ACCESSORIZE THE ARMS.Add a toothbrush, feathers, or a 3D-printed part! Just make sure your attachment is not too heavy.
