Who makes it: Lego 

What it costs: $350 

Why we like it: Sensors and software and motors, oh my! The latest version of Lego's robot-building kit includes an ARM9 microprocessor with Wi-Fi support and a microSD card reader. It includes pieces and instructions for building five creations, plus tools for programming them, a remote controller, companion apps for iOS and Android devices and much more. Observed our young assembler: "It's complicated, but cool."
