Robo toys are all the rage when I was a kid, and I’m sure it’s the same today too, except science and technology have advanced much further since my youth of barking dogs. Now we have dog robot toys that can do math and respond to real questions! Crazy! Do you know what has remained unchanged? Tons of kids still love to draw and we’re still starting with the classic pencil and paper set. We’re going to draw a cute little robot toy today. This little guy is a classic robot. You can color and draw whatever kind of robot toy you would like so feel free to take this tutorial as only inspiration. You may skip or mix up the steps; in fact, we encourage you to use your creativity!
Note: This tutorial and our many others are suitable for ages 3 to 10 (preschool and above.)

🖍️ Tools For Success
- Paper (Our Free How To Draw Template PDF)
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Markers
- Coloring Tools (I recommend Crayola’s 140 Piece Coloring Case)
🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.
Step-by-Step on How to Draw a Robot
- Draw a big rectangle in your paper’s middle with a smaller one on the lower part inside.
- Then, at the top of the big rectangle, draw another smaller rectangle.
- These shapes need more details to look like a robot, so let’s add some more. In the upper rectangle, draw two small circular eyes parallel to each other with rectangular lips below those eyes.
- Now we have the eyes and lips; Let’s draw the antenna and its ears! At the top of the head, connect a vertical line with a small circle on the top.
- Then, on each side of the head, draw little rectangular ears parallel to the head and connect each to the head with two short horizontal lines.
- Connect the head and the body by drawing two short vertical lines in between them.
- After so many details with the head, let’s now focus on the robot’s body. On each side of the body, connect enclosed c-curved lines with three short horizontal lines inside each curve.
- Then, at the end of each arm, draw inverted c-shaped curved lines to complete it with hands.
- For the final step, connect four long vertical lines parallel to each other at the bottom of the robot’s body.
- The two inner vertical lines should have a shorter distance than the two outer vertical lines.
- Then, connect every two vertical lines by drawing inverted semi-circles on the bottom of each two lines.
- Bam, the robot is done! Technically robots can be any color so the rest is up to you. We went with a classic red and silver robot but you choose whatever robot style that suits you!
