Robot Tim was constructed in 2009 from spare parts and old computers, and together they recorded their first record, "Pop of the Tots." Human Tim lives with his human wife and human child in a house with a pointy tower. Robot Tim collects tinfoil and sleeps next to a battery charger. Your kids won’t want to miss them playing music together.
