OWI Robot Kits
In 1980, OWI Incorporated, was looking for a way to expand its consumer product lines and bring its extensive technology background to the educational community. RobotiKits™ and OWIKits® were developed to affordably introduce students to robotics, science, and solar technology.
The kits are available in five difficultly levels--ranging from beginners with no experience up to advanced circuit board soldering and mechanical assembly-- challenging builders from grade school to adult. In conjunction with educators, OWI Inc. has developed a fully structured teaching curriculum with modules tailored to the kit’s unique electronic and mechanical features.
OWI Inc. is a leading supplier of robotic, aluminum bug kits, building and solar kits to schools, science clubs, science education centers and science camps. The kits are available at hobby, educational, toy and museum stores nationwide.
Patented in 1913AC Gilbert in 1911, and was manufactured by the A. C. Gilber, from 1913 until its bankruptcy in 1967. The Gabriel company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania bought the Erector name, and continued to make nearly identical sets into the 1970s and 1980s.
The Erector Set is believed by many to have been the subject of the first national advertising campaign in America for a toy. Its great success made it part of American folk culture, although its popularity has faded in recent decades in the face of competition from molded plastic construction toys, electronics, and other more "modern" toys.
The Erector Set was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in 1998.
Scores, perhaps hundreds, of different Erector Set kits have been made over the decades, most[citation needed famously the "No. 12½" deluxe kit that came with for the "Mysterious Walking Giant" robot. Current "Erector" sets are actually sets manufactured by Meccano of France, part of the Nikko Group of Japan. They do not have the flanged beams of the original Gilbert Erector Sets.
