Not so tempted to make anything from this book, but they are really cute, and the instructions seem clear enough. It even has a section on all the stitches, so it works for beginners, too -- there's even a bit on the various sewing stitches to use to sew on the decorations. Keeping this around: I'm sure I know someone who'd like a robot for Christmas...
Nelly Pailloux has revived the traditional craft of crocheting, transforming it from its stereotypical role as a hobby exclusively for the elderly. Will its trendy theme and easy to follow instructions, Crobots is a crocheting guide that introduces children of all ages to the craft as they create crocheted robots (crobots). Crobots is unique in its ability to transcend gender and characterize crocheting as a skill that can be learned and enjoyed by boys as well as girls. There are instructions f ...more

While a few of these patterns are cute, the majority of them are unattractive. Furthermore, the addition of non-yarn parts (buttons, beads, tire valves???) and extra crafting required takes away from the crochet aspect.
I don't crochet but if I did I'll try making one of these.

All of these require more than just crochet. Many of them need springs and screws and sequins to finish. Some are ugly, some are weird but a number are absolutely adorable. The assembly instructions are a one page visual map and I like that a lot. But I think they have you make separate crochet sections that you have to sew together when new segments could just be added to existing pieces by picking up stitches.
Beautiful crocheted robot amigurumis and how to make them step by step.
And with instructions how to crochet (so this will work beautifully for a beginner too). I might get some ideas of this for some future toy mice...
This is a crochet book versus knitting. Cursory instructions are given, but may not be thorough enough. However, actual project instructions look very comprehensive. Ranking by skill level will be great when starting out.

I clearly must be daft when it comes to crochet because even with these spelled out steps of robot creation, I was still left tangled in knots.

Cute designs - just not for me.
They have really cute projects. I am probably one of the few that actually read these vs just skim. I thought the patterns were well written. I cannot wait to try a couple out!

Wee tiny little robot patterns that are just too cute. Haven't made any of the patterns myself yet but it kicks in my creative drive just looking at the pictures.
ACK. ADORABLE. I would make all of these, except I know I'm too lazy to sew on the bits of felt and eyes and stuff. I would just have sad, eyeless robots.
Some of the robots near the end seem like filler bots instead of anything good. I love the idea of using springs, buttons and such as limbs :)
How freakin' cute! A gift from a friend that perked up my day. Soon I will unleash my army of amigurumi on the world!
The designs in this book are such fun! I have several that I'm looking forward to working this summer.
Nice colorful pictures with simple instructions, there were several crobots that I really want to make.
