Brush Bot

This brush but is perfect to motivate kids to clean! They love having the brush bot moving around with them while cleaning. It's very easy to do and like most of our bots it includes a mini motor, batteries and decor. Let's get to cleaning!


  • Easy



  1. Attach the battery pack to the DC motor by wrapping the wire around the leads on the motor. Twist and secure with electric tape.

  2. Tape/Glue the battery and motor to the top of the brush. Position the motor in on the back of the brush so that the cork has space to move.

  3. Place the cork on the mini motor. You might want to turn it on for testing.

  4. Decor the bot with googly eyes, hair, or more! This is the step when kids can get creative!

  5. Turn it on and have fun cleaning!

HOWs and WHYs

The brush bot has an unbalanced motor that makes it move in different ways. In this case the cork makes the motor unbalanced and as the motor moves/vibrates it causes the brush bot to move as well.
