WowWee’s Tri-Bot – The Charming Interactive Robot for Kids

 Tri-Bot is a super-special interactive robot that is loaded with personality, charm and good looks.   But he is so much more than just another pretty face.  He talks, flashes and roams about on  three wheels.  He has an internal speaker and his eyebrows move when he talks.  You can bend him at the waist and move his arms.  To avoid running into all sorts of obstacles in his path, he is fitted with a variety of IR sensors.

Control his actions and movement by using the easy-to-use matching red remote control.  He has several different super-cool modes to select from.  When he is in the "Homing" mode, he'll follow you wherever you go.  When Tri-Bot is in "Guard" mode, he'll guard all your valuables or let you know when little brother is snooping in your room.

 This programmable robot can store up to 60 new tricks and has three different driving games to play.   Besides all of those cool features, Tri-Bot also tells stories and jokes!  No kidding!   And with this little guy, there is no need for an alarm clock.  Tri-Bot will act as your own personal alarm clock too. 

He weighs about two pounds and is 10 inches tall.  Tri-Bot requires 8 AA and 3 AAA batteries, which are not included.  Recommended for children 8 and up, WowWee's Tri-Bot retails for $79.99. You can find the Tri-Bot line of toys here on Amazon.

I can see why it's meant for kids because it's not very attractive to the eyes.

Ahh..

 Really?  I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, eh?
