MeeBot 2.0 Kit is available today exclusively at select Apple Stores in the US and Canada.
MeeBot 2.0 Kit is part of UBTECH’s JIMU Robot line, an award-winning robotic building block system designed for children ages 8 and up. JIMU Robot engages kids in the fundamentals of STEM, giving them essential skills for a brighter future of success while having fun and expanding their creativity.

This holiday, kids will be excited to receive a new MeeBot 2.0 Kit that dances, twists, and shakes its way into their hearts while inspiring them with excitement for robotics.
“The response to MeeBot 1.0 has been tremendous,” said John Rhee, senior vice president and general manager, UBTECH North America. “We clearly tapped into something special – the intersection of kids’ love for robots with the opportunity to learn, create, and code in a simple and intuitive yet powerful way. Since 2016, interest in and importance of STEM learning has only grown, so we felt the time is right to level-up MeeBot with even more technologies to teach and inspire kids about STEM.”
MeeBot 2.0 Kit is now 30% bigger and adds exciting new, programmable technologies including two programmable LED “eyes” and a codable color sensor that responds to included color cards or other colorful objects to make your robot really move. Also included are six smooth motion robotic servo motors, plus a new gear system that provides an opportunity to learn more about engineering movement and motion. This programmable, dancing humanoid robot can be built in a snap with the JIMU app for your iPad or iPhone (iOS 9.0 or later required), including 3D, 360-degree, step-by-step instructions and easy-to-learn Blockly coding. MeeBot 2.0 Kit is a great introduction to robotics and STEM learning in a fun, engaging, humanoid form factor.
