The quality of the build is lousy to be honest, the skin looses color - the paint comes off! The white paint on the teeth chips off. As does the brown on the eyelids. Not to mention that the skin itself is of low quality, it tears and even 'melts away' without the user even having put any stress on the rubber skin. So the physical exterior is poor. So far mine has worked mechanically, although a leg joint occasionally gets stuck. And no, my Pleo has not been played with by kids, I'm an adult and my kid (4yo) does not even want to play with Pleo.
The range of motion is limited, Pleo can not sit down on its own. And it can not lie down. Movement of neck and tail make it look more 'realistic' but the limited movement of the legs is a real pity.
The program LifeOS is terrible... it's noting like the manufacturer advertises. To put things nicely: it's limited... and repetitive. And boring. I am not impressed. Hopefully the manufacturer will release a firmware (LifeOS) upgrade that lives up to the hype.
