My first challenge - this is fun!

I wanted to do a robot, but I wasn't sure what shape to make him, so I asked my 6 year-old son to draw me a robot. He did a very simple picture, which then turned into this:



I don't know how he ended up looking like an elephant, but there you are. His 'ears' are in fact two extra heads with eyes on them, so he can look all around.



See, he can even look behind himself!



He has a 'trunk' which is a sensor and can also pick things up.



He has wheels on his feet, which are actually marbles. He is bright and colourful so that he is not mistaken for an elephant, which would be embarrassing.

I hope you all like him!
