Kauzbots are not actual mechanical robots, instead they are soft and cuddly robots with a heart. Each time a 18″ Kauzbot is purchased, 10% of the $24.99 retail price is donated to a cause. There are 10 bots being released in 2009, and each Kauzbot is passionate about a particular cause, ranging from pediatric AIDS to autism to the protection of the environment. Each Kauzbot comes with a tag on it indicating its chosen particular cause. This is a great toy to get your kids because not only will you be helping out a cause, but you can use this opportunity to teach your child about the cause that they and the Kauzbot are helping out so that they can learn about helping out others.
