Toy robot review: WowWee Tribot Talking Companion

Pin It


Do you need a talking buddy?

In fact, do you need an interactive talking humanoid robot?

Still not sure?

What if I add that his talkativeness and dynamic personality will make him the court jester in your family?

This is robotics packed together with comedy - the best combination there is.

WowWee Tribot Robot Companion was the winner of the Toy of the Year Award and righly so, as it is one of WowWee's most expressive and entertaining robots.

Kids will be entranced with this new robotic friend that is a fun toy with a cute voice that keep kids coming for more.

Of course, the Tribot Robot Companion will not teach your child the principles of robotics, this is a robot for fun activities and play. You don't need to assemble it and the only real intervention you need to make is to put in the batteries and switch it on.

After its on, give the remote control to your kid and let him have fun!

Keep in mind that you need 8 AA batteries, this baby does not move on French Fries! As this robot goes through batteries as Elvis went through cookies, get some rechargable batteries ready - to keep the cost down.

Other than that, your kids are going to have a blast with their Tri-bot that has an inbuilt alarm mode. Get ready for a funny panic attack!

When the alarm goes off, Tri-bot starts running around like crazy.

Now its up to you if you want to turn it off. Catch him if you can!

WowWee's Tribot Robot Companion has a three-wheeled base that can turn in all directions - this allows very controlled movement in any direction!

Another smashing feature is the tilt-sensitive remote controller. If you point the remote and wriggle your wrist - he will come after you.
