Now you can kindle your child’s curiosity for prehistoric creatures and make-believe adventures with his very own “real” baby dinosaur Triceratops. You may have seen other “talking” and “moving” toys before, but chances are your dino-loving toddler has never seen a prehistoric pet that comes to “life” with realistic electronic sounds and motion like this one. Kota, the name of the baby-dinosaur, is a fossil-sized fun standing just over 2.5 feet tall. A hidden handle helps kids hold on once they climb onto the dinosaur’s back. Realistic stomping sounds add to the make-believe fun as kids bounce in place on the spring seat. And when you talk to KOTA the Triceratops he’ll roar back with expressive tail, head, eye, mouth and horn movements. Touch his nose with your hand and KOTA “sniffs” it. In fact, it’s easy to trigger all of his sensitive spots – try tickling his belly or chin to make KOTA “laugh”. And when you think this pretend dinosaur has worked up an appetite, be sure to “feed” him with his leafy snack – it really sounds like he’s munching on it. And if you still cant believe what you re reading just check the video below of the baby Triceratops dinosaur toy in action…



The interactive sit on Triceratops is priced at $399.95.

That thing is an affordable remote controlled robot, no way! WowWee’s new robot toy named Rovio just looks amazing at least on pictures, it is almost like something that just came out form NASA and is designed to explore the space and unknown planets. Actually we are talking about a remote controlled robot designed for patrolling your home while you are gone. The robot has some degree of autonomy, but is designed more in a way to be controller by a human. WowWee Rovio comes equipped with a WiFi connection which allows you control it from anywhere in the world given that you have a web capable mobile phone or a computer with internet connection.


The robot has a built-in web camera that provides high-resolution (640×480 pixels) video along with a microphone and speakers allowing voice interaction with the robot, for instance with your kids at home, while you are away on a business trip for instance. Rovio has a built-in rechargeable battery that allows for about two hours usage and then the robot can find it’s recharging station and go recharge automatically to be ready for more action. There are three wheels supporting the chassis, providing 360 degrees of movement movement freedom, allowing the robot go go almost anywhere around your home, surveying it’s surroundings. You can configure the robot with up to 10 paths for a customized patrol, it will move along each path, detecting and avoiding obstacles with it’s infrared sensor, and repeat the sequence until you give new orders. There are probably even more interesting things about the cool Rovio robot, but we should wait a bit more, until it is made officially available…

The current price of the Rovio is $299.95, you can pre-order now to get it in the beginning of October.

Pleo is an autonomous robotic life form modeled on a one-week-old Camarasaurus dinosaur. The cute-looking robot is designed to mimic life which means Pleo thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal would do. In general, it looks, moves, and behaves in ways that would almost make you think it is actually alive. Specifically, Pleo has organic body language, exhibits evolving emotions, is aware of his surroundings and has recognizable behaviors that change over time. At the heart of Pleo is Life OS, the operating system software that enables Pleo to act independently and will evolve Pleo’s personality according to his interactions with you and the environment.


The robot-toy progresses through three different Life Stages. When first awakened, Pleo is a hatchling. As you interact together, Pleo transitions through an infant stage to become a juvenile dinosaur. Then the fun really starts! As Pleo is a highly sophisticated product which evolves into an inquisitive animal that requires attention and care, Pleo is not suitable or intended for children under 8 years old. Smaller children may damage the robot, so it is a good idea to be careful when deciding to get it or not…


Camarasaurus (KAM-ah-rah-sawr-us) means “Chambered Lizard” (Greek kamara = chamber and sauros = lizard), referring to the holes in its vertebrae. Camarasaurus is the best-known sauropod found in North America and the most abundant of fossils from the Late Jurassic period. Camarasaurus also lived in Europe, where it survived into Early Cretaceous times. A complete, nearly perfect skeleton of a juvenile, 17 foot (5.2 meters) long, was found in Utah. Its head was short and box-like with nostrils set above the snout and in front of the eyes. The weight of its backbone was lightened by holes in its vertebrae. Its neck was shorter and thicker than most sauropods, and it possessed a short and somewhat flattened tail. The forelimbs and hind legs of Camarasaurus were about the same length.


Of course the best thing you can expect from an electronic toy is to have a power on/off button, unlike a real pet. Pleo uses a Ni-Mh rechargeable battery that can last for about an hour or 1:20 hours of play time with a single charge. There is also an SD flash card reader and mini USB connection so that you can program the dinosaur (with additional software) or update the built-in OS, when updates are available. Currently Pleo is the most realistic looking and acting robot toy, something you can also see in the video below showing the robot-dinosaur in action and also even interacting with a second Pleo…


In USA you can get Pelo for as low as $309.99, and in Europe it will cost you about $457.
