    Let's love kids and robots.

    My collegue has just written this sentence for social media, but we are in doubt if the sentence is correct (sounds native)..

    Can you please look at the two sentences below?
    BR

    Let's love kids and robots.
    Let's Make kids love robots, and robots love kids :)

    Re: Let's love kids and robots.

    If you change the capital "M" on "make" to a lower case "m" and add a full stop at the end, both sentences are grammatically correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Let's make kids love robots, and robots love kids.
    With those two changes the sentences are grammatically correct. I'd need more context to comment further.

    Re: Let's love kids and robots.

    What are you trying to say? These sentences are different in meaning.

    Both have kind of a creepy vibe to them.

    Re: Let's love kids and robots.

    There is a photo of a kid who is teaching welding path to an industrial robot. And there is also a teacher who is teaching kid how to write software for this industrial robot.

    The idea is to tell people to; "have kids playing with robots, teach kids how to write softwares, have kids who like robots and technology."

    So, that's it. After I tell the story, meaning changes?

    Well, I've just figured that although I wrote [grammar] in topic title, it was also related with the meaning.

    See my changes above.

    In your originals, you said:

    1. "Let's love kids and robots". That is a suggestion to us all that we should love children and robots.
    2. "Let's make kids love robots, and robots love kids". That is a suggestion that we should force our children to love robots and (somehow) force robots to love children.

    I'm sure you can see how those two definitions are different.

    You can't tell people to "have children who do XXX".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
