Minnie has a huge order of bows to make before the honey festival and doesn't know how she will get it all done in time. Daisy saves the day with a bow-making robot named Bow-Bot. Minnie and Daisy push the buttons and Bow-Bot is making the bows in no time. However, she soon runs out of ribbon and starts making bows out of anything she can find, like a chair and the curtains! The remote control breaks as they try to turn Bow-Bot off, but Minnie uses her bow grabber to push the OFF button on Bow-Bot. Minnie repairs the remote and Bow-Bot works again!
