From a Planet Far, Far Away...

We’ve recently had some intergalactic visitors land in the Fly Buy museum store… You may recognize one in particular as Robby the Robot. Robby was (and still is) a fan favorite, well-known from his role in the 1956 film, Forbidden Planet, as well as his appearances in popular TV series during the 60’s such as Lost in Space, The Twilight Zone and The Addams Family. 1

So, what is Robby doing at the Air Zoo? Not only is he helping to greet shoppers as they enter our museum store, he also adorns this Air Zoo exclusive youth T-shirt in glow-in-the-dark fashion! You will not find this unique style anywhere else - Check it out here!

What else has that Robby been up to? You can find him in one of our museum’s latest and coolest exhibits – Alien Worlds and Androids. This out-of-this-world exhibit is bringing back some nostalgia for our adult visitors, while also exciting kids about the fascinating world of robotics and space exploration!  If you and your kiddos are looking to further your knowledge of robotics and engineering, make sure to shop our selection of children’s STEM and STEAM kits and educational activities! If space travel and aliens are more your style, you’ll find tons of other carefully selected space themed items in our on-site and online store - rockets, shuttles, astronaut helmets, space suits, costumes and fun light-up items to name a few…  

What memories do you have of Robby the Robot? Any other favorite androids you’d like to see more of? Feel free to reach out to us via email at airzoostore@airzoo.org or on our Facebook Page. We would love to hear from you!
