This is one of the few robots that I have actually purchased brand new. Woot.com was offering this during one of their much anticipated "Woot-Offs" and I simply couldn't resist! I had seen this at Radio Shack just the week before at the retail price of $99. I snaggeed one for half that.

It's kind of like a cross between a Robosapien, a crab and a dog, I guess. It can move in any direction without turning around, just like a crab. It can 'sit' and 'attack' just like a dog. And it has the programming abilities and design of the Robosapien.

He'll guard your room and explore his surrounds if left to his own devices. And you'll be amazed at some of the movements he comes up with. I won't give everything away - you just have to see it to appreciate it fully! With it's own moods and personality, this just might be the best pet you'll ever own!
