Our Verdict

We were very intrigued by this robot.  Given that the price tag is only £29.99 and most robots released seem to be in much higher price brackets, we expected it to perhaps be lacking somewhat.  However we were very wrong.  Despite it's price tag this is actually a very well made and entertained piece of kit.

We do like the fact that it is what we would call a traditional looking robot rather than a cube.  This robot has hit top toy lists in past years and it's packed with functions...

It comes with a handheld remote (2 x AA batteries required), it responds well to hand commands and the handheld controller can be used to programme various different actions and commands (ticking the STEM box too).

All in all this is a great quality piece of kit for what we believe is a fantastic price in comparison to others on the market.  This will provide hours of entertainment for the kids and to be honest, us adults had quite a bit of fun with our new friend too.

We scored this so highly based on the interactivity and great value for money
