Let those cool robots come to life

With The Robot Factory by Tinybop, your children ages 6 and up can build robots on iPhone or iPad and then see them come alive on Apple TV.

Test those bots. Your kids will love seeing their robot creations up on the big screen. They can test out the bots to see if they can run and jump as planned. Or, they can do something whimsical by making the robots dance. Either way, you will enjoy seeing your kids’ faces as the robots they built come alive on Apple TV.

What is it about?

The Robot Factory by Tinybop takes the nifty robots created on the iOS app and puts them on the big screen for your kids to play with in a variety of ways. They can see if the robots they have built work by making them walk, run, or fly. They can have their robots do a funky dance, move around neat obstacles, and let them use cool robot tools. The app is the perfect Apple TV companion for those who have the app on their iPhone or iPad.

Not for those who...

  • You do not have kids ages 6 and over that play with this app on iOS
