Gift Idea: WowWee Robots

If your child is interested in robotic toys, WowWee, best known for their RoboSapien, makes some robots that your kids might enjoy.

WowWee MIP Black and Silver The WowWee MiP – Black and Silver has been compared to a Segway due to the fact that it can balance itself on two wheels, much like you can on a Segway.

WowWee Roboraptor X Dinosaur Robot The WowWee Roboraptor X is a dinosaur robot that is powered by 6 AA batteries (not included) and 3 AAA batteries (not included) for the remote control. Roboraptor has different moods: hunting, playful, and cautious. It also has tail, chin, and mouth touch sensors.

The remote can control: hunting gait, walking gait, running gait, backward movement, turn left & right, walk left, walk right, stop. The remote also lets you move its head clockwise or counterclockwise, move the tail left and right, or bite. There is also a demo mode.

Roboraptor also has a free roam mode. If left alone for three minutes, it will autonomously explore its environment. He uses his infrared sensors to avoid obstacles. There is also a guard mode – in this mode, Roboraptor uses his infrared vision sensors and stereo sound sensors to guard the area around him. If he detects any sound or movement, Roboraptor will react with a roar and become animated.
