We asked Hazel Edwards, Manager of Discovery Museum, to select her favourite item from the Discovery Museum shop. Here's her 'curator's pick'
"The Discovery shop has lots of quirky, good quality gifts and my favourite is the Tin Can Robot. This fun mechanics' kit shows you how to transform a metal drinks can into a walking, wobbling, bog-eyed robotic monster.
"I think it would be a great gift to take to children's parties and it will definitely entertain the kids for a few hours. It also carries an important message about recycling as you have to rescue a drinks can, which would otherwise be thrown away, to make the robot."
