Michael Paul Smith says:
"Everyone of Dan's Bots is a frothy confection of whimsey, style, mechanical expertise and just plain fun.
I find myself hooting out loud in appreciation and delight every time I see one of his pieces.
For myself, the retro look is the main draw but on further examination of each creation, it's the level of cleverness coupled with fabricating skills that gets my heart racing.
And then there is his ability to infuse a personality into each and every one of the Bots.
How is this possible?
Dan, you are a gift to the world. It's good to be on this planet with you."

"Tinkerbots makes the most amazing robots and rayguns ever. Actually anything Dan makes is fantastic, and definitely one of a kind. He takes stuff that most of us would toss, or walk right by, and he works his Tinkerbots magic! Even better, Dan is one of the nicest artists you will ever have the pleasure to buy from. Take a look at his work - such robot and raygun eye candy is not to be missed!"

"Dan's creations, whichever form they happen to take, are always ready to surprise and amaze! I'm happy to say that i have two of his bots residing in my workroom, and they've boosted the creative quotient considerably!
I don't know how he thinks up and builds all of this stuff, but I guess that's part of the magic! : ) As he likes to say: "Fun stuff!"

"Dan Jones' Tinkerbots creations are the most fabulous use of what most people would call "junk". Dan creates beautiful ray guns out of found objects that could spark anyone's imagination. His bots are beautiful and some of the best characters I've ever encountered. You will most definitely be happy with any piece you purchase or commission from Dan!"
