  • Incredible Robosapien created by a NASA scientist
    Reviewed by Roboticist - November 24, 2021

    This robot won the first ever robotic soccer tournament. It is highly modifiable and with the right skills could easily be improved with artificial intelligence. In its base form it is an infra red controlled bipedal robot capable of lifting small objects and walking with a true bipedal walking gait. It saddens me to see such an awesome robot being review bombed by people of low morality. There is nothing available in 2021 that is better than the Robosapien. And yes it was developed and designed by a NASA LANL scientist: Mark Tilden. Simple and universal enough to be enjoyed by anyone, advanced enough to be heavily modified.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Ancient technology, ancient toy.
    Reviewed by Milo - November 13, 2021

    I can't believe this is being sold anywhere but a vintage toy show. It's from 2004. I bought my kid one when he was 5. Now he's turning 22. Robotics has clearly moved far beyond this electronic puppet from almost 18 years ago. Your child will become bored with it after he/she does the few activities and movements it is capable of. I'm still shocked it's still on store shelves, unchanged, after almost 2 decades! Wowwee indeed!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Neat robot, sturdy, complex controls, limited play
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Fitzy - January 30, 2022

    My kid loves robots and this was on sale for like 45% off, so took a chance. We cringed as he dragged it up the steps and then all started laughing as it went "ouch" with everything bump. The controls are convoluted but you can program some relatively complex sequences. It seems pretty sturdy too, but I suspect this will be one of those toys that loses luster quickly and just takes up a huge spot on the toy shelf. This could shine as an intro to chaining commands, so if you have someone interested in robotics or coding, this could be a very basic introduction to that.

  • Nephew loves it
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Pons - January 14, 2022

    Picked this up as a Christmas present for my 8 year old nephew. He loves it. It was easy for him to figure out how to use. Build quality is better than expected. The remote it comes with can be a little confusing when you first look at it but you’ll figure it out quickly. It can walk on carpet or hard floors without a problem. He managed to make it pick up a pen off the floor with its hand! Overall, I’d say it’s worth the asking price. Be prepared to buy loads of batteries though as it isn’t rechargeable
