This product is subject to specific safety warnings
Roboraptor is a predatory dinosaur robot with instincts to match his wild technology! His mood determines his behavior. He'll go into predatory mode, nervous and cautious mode, or into a friendly, playful mode depending on how he wakes up. Laser tracking system allows you to draw his path to the prey, and he'll follow it. He loves to play tug of war, and he's sensitive to his environment, so he'll stay away from table legs. Requires 6 "AA" batteries (not included) and 3 "AAA" batteries for the remote (not included). Measures 32"L x 11"W x 9"H. (Measures 32" from head to tail.)

Do not use ordinary batteries for this machine as its performance is vastly improved by using top notch (2000+ mAh) NiMH rechargable batteries. The difference to the walking and general movements was very noticable it also allowed it to walk on more surfaces.
I would recommend this product to anyone who is interested in robotics or just wants a cool looking interesting toy.
The only problem is that most people will lose interest in it after 5 minutes. The description of it gives the impression it will be running about the place in a smooth fluid way, reality being it very jerkily waddles about the place slowly. If you have wooden or laminate floors it doesnt cope very well.
so really its a fun novelty toy that kids will quickly get bored with. For me its a cool toy that I'll keep around, next to my Zoidzilla!
I paid £89.99 for one of these and i must admit it is larger than i expected but my son was bored of it very quickly. it will probably end up being sold on ebay!!
my recommendation is, if you can, buy one used. in my case it is alot of money to spend on something that the novelty wears off too fast.
Its a shame as its build quality is great, and the sensors react to sound and movement as promised. Its just a pity it nose-dives when it lurches forwards.
The raptor does move better on carpet rather than wooden floor, and can be fussy about carpet which is to thick. It also needs very good batteries as another reviewer has said already.
As for not doing what was expected, I think it does everything we expected and we have got it to hold things in it's mouth. It has walked around the room and detected obstacles quite well.
My son described this as his dream present.
Sniffs - check.
Head turns authentically - check.
Realistic tail movement - check.
Walk - er not really.
Running - no chance mate.
What a waste of money!
