3.0 out of 5 stars It's good fun, but hard work to get there, 14 Feb 2009
This review is from: Violet Nabaztag/tag - The second first wireless rabbit (Electronics)
There are a myriad of issues that I have with the Nabaztag/tag, but most of them can be worked around fairly easily, making it fun to use EVENTUALLY. Hence the 3/5

It didn't accept my WPA encryption despite supposedly being able to use it now. So I switched over to WEP and it worked fine.

It drops the network connection quite a lot if kept on 24/7, but then I don't need it running like that while I'm at work etc, so I bought a timed plug so that it powers down completely and then restarts the connection at sensible times.

More annoyingly, it doesn't recognise your local LAN at all for streaming audio etc, any MP3s you wish to use will always have to go via the web, so if you're on a limited bandwidth/shared connection, you will eat away at any allowance you have. Obviously messages etc use a lot less.

The web-based application for adding RSS feeds, news broadcasts etc is a bit slow, but very straight forward. It is frustrating to have to go on the computer to control the rabbit's basic message functions, but you don't have to do it that frequently, unless you were daft enough to use its messaging seriously.

I have to say controlling the Nabaztag (or any other if that particular owner on the Nabaztag network gives you access) directly yourself through a computer is VERY VERY EASY once you read the documentation, but given the end result is a bit of speech, a few ear wiggles and some flashing lights, I wouldn't expect it to be otherwise.
