The drone toy kit called BeeBot is a prebuilt circuit tool to teach children the basic idea of how a drone works and how children can make their personal drone. They will gain another perspective of experience that they cannot get from other kinds of RC toys. They will be able to assemble by following the instructions step by step so they know how each part works, and with their parents learn that this drone is not dangerous like standard models. Each part has joints to connect pieces together. According to safety, children who play with this drone will not be hurt by propellers because they are covered by the shell. They will follow the instructions first and then design the shape by themselves. BeeBot will also provide a hexagon unit for them to attach to their drone in order for multiple drones to fly together
