The Amazing COVID-safe Megabot

One Ballard parent has created a stunning bubble-blowing and lollipop-giving Megabot costume — all out of duct tape and cardboard! — for her young daughter. She even added an arm extender to the homemade Halloween costume so the bot can hand out lollipops more than 6 feet away from its tiny captain, in accordance with coronavirus prevention recommendations.

This is some serious craftsmanship and creativity!

Check out that COVID-safe lollipop arm extension, more than 6 feet from the bot’s captain.
