STEAM education can have more fun! That`s why we create Mabot, a modular robot kit that combines education and entertainment for kids and adults to spark their imagination, with hands-on learning, teamwork, and fun.
Each Mabot kit is an incredible robotic system that allows kids to use modular components to create robots and unique functions such as moving, sensing the surroundings and interacting with the environment.
Mabot has 4 sets of kits and each of them can be used to build different types of personal multi-functional robots. Then, using the Mabot Go and IDE App, kids can easily control the robots and learn how to program them with additional functions.
Like the structure of human body, Mabot has 5 types of elemental balls, the control ball, the drive ball, the connection ball, the battery ball, and the sensor ball.
Each of the balls is designed into the right size to grab. Mabot is also among the first of its kind that supports hot-plugging, meaning that you can add or remove functional components without turning off the power.
By doing so, we ensure the safety and get you concentrated on playing and learning.
The elemental balls might look complicated but actually they are not! Mabot comes with the simple and intuitive Mabot Go App (available on Apple Store & Google Play) that provides easy, step-by-step instructions for you.
It is fun to build a robot from scratch but even more awesome when you can enable different useful functions into your robots. With Mabot Go, you can easily program with the simple drag-and-drop for different functions such as changing light colors, driving the wheels, hitting the button, and much more.
After mastering the Mabot Go, it is time to try the next level!
Mabot IDE is an advanced programming App but still super easy for kids to use and learn to code. It comes with a visual programming interface which allows you to drag the preset coding blocks and put them in a sequence to realize your desired functions!
PCMAG: "It will be an excellent way to introduce kids to the magic of manipulating the world through code. It also serves as a nice halfway point between canned solid-state robotic toys and something more complex and nuanced like Lego Mindstorms."
New Atlas: "The Bell Robot Mabot kit is so easy to build with that my 6-year-old was able to make this robot in about ten minutes using only graphical instructions included with the Mabot Go app."
Fast Company: "Not all STEM toys deliver on fun, but Mabot puts it first."
Geekdad: "Overall, the components are pretty good. Assembly is easy and the parts feel fairly sturdy."
Gadget Flow: "Welcome to the robotic LEGO toys of the future. They’re sleek, smooth, and fun to play with unlike the old robotic sets of yesteryear"
Mabot Go App comes with step-by-step building instructions for 12 different robots, which serve as missions for your kids to complete. Along the way, they will learn building basics and master coding as they go.
The hands-on instructions will lead the users to program their robots in specific ways and challenge them to follow through on their goals. Once you accomplish the missions and get more familiar with Mabot components, you can quickly turn your creativity into reality.
Mabot is compatible with Lego bricks, so you can always expand your robots with your own LEGO™ toys for endless combinations of creative fun!
Mabot Go App is currently available on both Apple Store and Google Play. You can download it and take a look at the robot-building instructions!
Mabot IDE provides an easy graphical programming method for kids to code with a simple drag-and-drop method. They can try many different combinations of programming functions as they play and learn. Due to the limited screen space of smartphones, the Mabot IDE App is available only for iPad.
Like a human body that has brain, muscle, legs, and eyes, Mabot has its own computing center, driving wheels, sensors and connection parts. Each serves an important function.

We are team Bellrobot, the leading robotic and creative science education organization in China. We are providers of robotics education, AI research and development, and science education. We create “learning by doing and playing” curriculums that encourage hands-on learning, imagination, creativity, logical thinking and teamwork for children.
We want to bring collaborative, hands-on robotics and programming learning to every kid in the world! Join our campaign and help us make learning fun for more children.
Risks and challenges
Every great project has its challenges, especially those that include combining software, hardware, and and precision parts.
We will try our best to be as transparent as possible so that you will be updated with the details of product production after the campaign achieves its goal.
Join us on this exciting journey as Mabot becomes a new standard for children learning how to code and help to develop the growing STEM education community.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
