This was a Christmas gift and she absolutely loves it! I would recommend this to anyone for their first "robot" experience! If I could have had this as a kid I would have thought I had hit it big! Great "toy" and very well thought out. The only thing that would make it better is if you could DEFINITELY voice command it. That would be SWEET!

I have a robot collection. I have many of the Wowee robots. Out of all of them, the tribots is the best! Its does a lot more than some of the others. It is also easy to manuver. It moves all over very fast on carpet and hard floors. The wheels pick up pieces of lint and fuzz off the floor easliy, so it is best to use it in a clean area. I don't recommend using it outside...the wheels would get ruined easily.

I bought this robot for my grandson (who lives 3 states away from me) for his birthday after reviewing numerous videos about it on YouTube. He was delighted with it when he opened it and he called me immediately. I have received 5 phone calls since then (over the course of a week) from him and my son both, excited about something else they have gotten it to do. I also have received numerous phone calls from my other grandsons begging to get one of them for Christmas.

This was on my son's Xmas list. After searching for reviews and visiting the Wowwee site, I was on the fence still. I had exchanged a duplicate gift at Walmart for store credit for about $40. This item was on sale for $80 at Walmart.com so I decided for the difference out of my pocket, I'd get it. I think it's a very funny toy and very clever. I'd say it's worth paying no more than $50-$60 for...I wouldn't pay the going retail rate of $100. Don't know whether or not to be insulted when it says my floor needs vacuuming...lol...prolly does! It does do a lot of neat stuff. Alarm is funny and some of the things he says. Moves VERY well for 3 wheels (side to side and front to back). I would recommend it..but, get it on sale or at discount!

We bought this as a Christmas present for our 7 year old son and he absolutely loves it! This wow wee bot has many features, built-in games, can move around in any direction, and even makes cute little comments as he moves around the room. The remote control is easy to use. For $40, you can't beat this robot! We are totally, 100% pleased with our purchase. The ONLY negative thing I can say about this product is that the batteries may run out quicker than you'd like, but honestly, what toy's batteries don't? As it does require quite a few batteries, you may want to invest in some re-chargable ones. That's what we did. I would definately recommend this robot, and have already done so!

My son saw this on the website and loved it. We got it on sale for $44 before Christmas. I was thinking about surprising him with the more advanced one but ended up just getting this one. It does everything it says it does. My son is 8 and he loves playing with it. The "homing device" is his favorite part. Hiding in a room and having his robot find him! He also really likes the alarm part. He will randomly place it all over the house and hide so that he can catch our expressions when the robot starts to alert! Very good product for the money. I did however see them at other stores for around $80 and I don't think I would have paid that. The downfall is that it says the same 4 or 5 phrases over and over.

Its Christmas night, and my son finally stopped playing with this. It does what it says it will do, with the exception of the jokes - I haven't heard any. Its not "quite" as exciting as it makes it sound on paper, but it truly is cool, and I'm not much for robots. I am dissapointed that I paid slightly more last week when I ordered it. The speech is very easy to understand, he is somewhat loveable, and he's pretty durable (so far). Not difficult to figure out either. I think its appropriate for 6 yrs old up. My boy was hoping for Lego Robotics (better for 10-12 yrs and very very expensive) this was a substitute that's working out well, but I imagine he'll be bored in a month.

For the money I spent I was really expecting it to do a lot more. It says the same few phrases over and over and the 'games' it was programmed with were not great. I have a 6 yr old and an 8 yr old, they like to drive it around for a while but it doesn't keep their interest for too long. I really don't feel like it's worth more than $25.00.......and I paid $80!

When my 3 yo daughter told us she wanted a talking robot for Christmas, I wasn't sure if I could find something that would work for her age and that wouldn't cost a hundred or more. Good thing I found a great deal on Tribot! She got what she wanted, loves him and calls him Fred. But she doesn't really turn him on and play with him very much (which I kinda expected) and it's only Jan. 9th. He is a little beyond her, but there is still plenty she can do with him. The remote tilt feature doesn't really work well, which I thought would be great for her. Plus, you have to hold the trigger down to use the tilt, so it's not as preschooler friendly as you'd think. I know it wasn't built for her age, though. When she gets the remote in her hands she just mashes down buttons. By far her favorite feature is the guard feature. She loves to walk back and forth in front of him and set him off. She also likes to watch when we play with him. The adults really got a kick out of him on Christmas, especially her uncles and grandpa.There's a lot to explore and his remarks are very cute. We were wowed by the technology. We haven't played much with some of the more advanced stuff like the games, because you need a large clear space and there wasn't much of that with all the presents and people around. One of these days I'd like to explore those more when things slow down around here.
