    My Little Android: Surgery Edition

    A new educational kit from the makers of Andre: The RoboPup That Feels and Starfish Cat: Your Living Monstrosity

    We at My Little Android are delighted to announce an exciting new tool for maintaining your custom robotic friend:

    The My Little Android RoboSurgery Kit

    My Little Android: Surgery Edition comes with Starfish Cat: Your Living Monstrosity as well as a RoboSurgery Kit for maintenance and repair.

    Explore your best robofriend’s inner magic with the very same tools used by My Little Android’s real human engineers!

    Did your robo-bestie swallow a lightbulb? No problem. Use the My Little Android RoboSurgery Kit to remove his or her skin and extract those pesky glass pieces from deep inside.

    It’s educational, too! Teach your kids about IR sensors, servos, and the value of repairing your best friend instead of throwing him in the trash or trying, ineffectively, to flush him down the toilet. Starfish Cats are excellent swimmers, and we at My Little Android must again underscore that attempting to flush or drown an injured android will only make it angrier.

    Update: Starfish Cats are now open source! Please read more about these delightful creatures and why they were made.
