Guest Picks: Robot Love
This funky robot decor will inspire budding engineers and give your home a techie-chic touch
There's nothing wrong with falling head over heels for a robot — especially if you promise to feed it lots of nuts, bolts, well-oiled springs and big ideas to keep it happy. These robot finds include lots of playful decor and accessories to fill the room of your budding robot engineer. — Mari from Small for Big
I'm glad this photo includes both of these lovable robot pillows because it was impossible to choose just one of them to share. I suggest bringing both of these guys home.
Now that you've found the perfect cupcake holders, start planning that robot-themed birthday party ASAP! These would be great for holding party favors, candies or even little plants.
To heck with the kids area, I want this poster in my living room, or maybe in my home office as inspiration. There's something very sophisticated about him, don't you think?
My little one and I are both addicted to nightlights, and this super retro version would give off such a soft warm glow in the middle of the night. I bet it would scare those monsters away!
As a modern mom, I love seeing this totally girlie but totally awesome robot wall decal. All those little hearts would make my girl swoon.
Is your kid obsessed with ice like mine are? These robot ice cubes are absolutely hilarious. Though, one suggestion: Don't add them to your smoothie, or there might be some sad kiddos when their robots get all chopped up.
The heyday of robot love may remain with the classics of the past, and there's nothing better than a retro robot gracing your wall. There are plenty more options at this website too.
Find the softer side of your robot love with this adorable plushie. I'm sure he's destined to bring beep-bop joy to your littlest kidbot.
This guy is for the teens in your life, you know, the ones that hate to wake up in the morning. It'll roll off the nightstand and bonk around the floor until they get up and shut it off. It's brilliant.
Robot wallpaper — I hardly think I need to say anything else. Except, well, you need a wall of this in your robot-themed nursery, pronto!
Cubebots are one of those versatile toys that look as cool on the hip guy's desk at work as they do hanging at home with your 5 year old. They fold up into a cube and fold out into lots of personality. They also make great gifts from the kiddos to the daddies.
Learn the letter "R" with this print. It's available in several colors to suit your mood, and I love both the blue and the yellow.
Somehow this print manages to combine modern and retro. I think it's something about the colors, which would make a beautiful starting point for the color scheme in a boy's room.
Wow. This is one of the coolest wall art graphics I've ever seen — usually wall graphics skew younger than this. The site includes several great boy-themed options. I think they'd grow up well with your kids.
I have to say this is probably the sweetest robot I've ever met. It may have to do with the gal who designed him, for she's one of the sweetest toy designers I have had the privilege of knowing.
Update the bedding in any room with a quick dash of robot spice. I bet this would be great company in the middle of the night too, listening to every one of your kid's techie secrets.
Soopsori's wooden toys are some of the best out there, and this robot is a prime example. With multiple kinds of wood for color and natural oils for sealing, he's a very ecofriendly robot.
Even your lighting can bring a robot to life, and this guy has a heart in his center too. That's the kind of little surprise that will keep kids happy every time they turn him on — and off and on and off and on.
I've always thought that Land of Nod's soft chairs look like the most comfortable place to sit if you're under five feet tall. This particular chair is ready for several books of robot adventure.
