At first I was attracted by its bright colours and cute British accents, it seemed to offer some useful educational purpose so we welcomed it into our family. It responded by repeating stuff over and over again, very loud, even minutes after it had been abandoned by my disinterested children. After a complaint or two from my wife I realized Bob seemed to be shouting as loud as he could to be noticed and he could not be silenced (there's no volume or off switches.) He was also displaying a cunning knack for nocturnal activities... I'm not sure if this thing is supposed to have a motion detector, but it springs to life even when buttons have not been pushed, normally at night. I mean the US geological survey could use them to detect tiny nuances in seismic activity. Suspecting this "toy" could be the result of a brief foray into toy design by Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler I decided to shut it down. Imagine my surprise when I unscrewed the battery cover and there was no battery! I have since encased it concrete and thrown it in the river only to return home and find it sat on my sofa. Seriously, DON'T LET THIS INTO YOUR HOME!
