A 1.6m tall powered exoskeleton for kids? This won’t end well


I’m not sure what toys young kids want nowadays, but if you showed them one of these mechanical walkers I think all other desires would disappear.

It’s called the Kid’s Walker, and it’s a bipedal mech suit for young kids. It’s an accident waiting to happen, but at the same time your child is going to be pretty safe walking to school in one of these things. It’s not until they get a bit older and start experimenting with NERF gun attachments that you should worry.

The manufacturer is Sakakibara Kikai who is better known for producing machinery for agriculture, but on their website is an Amusement section with the Kid’s Walker listed.

The suit measures 1.6 x 1.6 x 1.3m and weighs 180kg. Power is provided through a gasoline engine with no detail on exactly how fast it can go. We don’t see a version for adults, but I’m sure you could ride alongside on a bike. Getting your kid to stop doing something may be quite tough, though as they really do have the upper hand once strapped in.
