I had this as a present at christmas and was completely amazed, ok I know it's only a toy but there is just something about the fact that it's a robot.
It can take a little bit of time to get to grips with old Robo but once in the swing the remote controls become very simple to use and operating Robo becomes a real joy. The experience becomes even better when you start learning to program the little critter putting multiple moves together and also getting him to react to touch and sounds in different ways, this is thanks to noise and touch sensors in the hands and feet. He is a bit pricey I have to be fair but all in all I'd say that Robo is well worth the money and will keep you occupied and coming back again and again. After a while, this little critter stops becoming a toy and becomes a small caveman friend always willing to cheer you up or make you laugh, your friends will also be impressed and children will be mesmerised by it and at the end of the night you can turn him off and listen to him snore.
This is a fantastic bit of kit, the only problem I did have with Robo was the packaging which took me an age to get off, does also drain batteries pretty rapidly so make sure you stock up. All in all I wouldn't be without Robo or Gruber as I've named mine!
