I got to meet some folks at Spin Master earlier this year at Blogger Bash and got a glimpse of their latest toys. My oldest daughter has been asking for the Zoomer Kitty for quite some time now and Santa is actually considering delivering this year. Most recently, at the 2016 toy fair, Spin Master unveiled another robotic pet known as Zoomer Chimp.
Much like the previous models such as Kitty, Dino and Dog. Zoomer Chimp has wheels for the hands and feet, a signature feature from the Zoomer line of toys. It’s an fun interactive robotic pet that comes with many surprises that will keep kids entertained during playtime.
Zoomer Chimp is recommended for kids aged 5 years and above. It comes complete with 1 rechargeable LiPo battery, USB charging cable, an instruction booklet, and reference guide. Below is a rundown of all the features to expect.
Here’s what you’ll love about Zoomer Chimp:
Zoomer Chimp may have wheels for hands and feet, but he easily moves on all fours. He can also stand upright without toppling thanks to Spin Master’s True Balance Technology.
Progressive play design
Spin Master uses what they call progressive play design, a special type of technology that lets Zoomer Chimp adapt to various voice commands and respond in different ways. As a result, Zoomer Chimp’s reactions are unpredictable. This keeps kids from getting bored easily and looking forward to discovering what other new tricks their Zoomer Chimp has in store for them.
Responsive to voice commands
Kids can train their own Zoomer Chimp with up to 10 voice commands. Zoomer will dance, roll around and do all manner of tricks when given simple voice commands such as “flip”, “stand”, “go bananas”, “let dance” and “chimp talk”.
Expressive facial expressions and personality
Another great feature about Zoomer Chimp is that he has a very expressive face. His eyes light up depending on his mood. So, kids will know when Zoomer Chimp is happy or needs some cheering up.
Based on other reviews of the Zoomer Chimp, the only major concern is the fact that it is breakable if dropped or toppled from tabletops. My guess is that it’s only little different from Kitty and Dog because it’s assumed that those would stay on the floor. Nonetheless, you’ll want to make sure your kids take a little care when handling Zoomer Chimp.
The Real Deal
For parents with kids who are into robotics, the Zoomer Chimp pet toy would be a great gift to give this holiday season. The realistic movements and expressive facial expressions of the Chimp will captivate kids and provide them with hours of fun play. This toy can also be a great addition to any kid’s collection of Zoomer toys.
Much like other toys from the Zoomer line, the Zoomer Chimp’s best feature comes from the engaging interactivity it offers. Kids get to feel like their robotic primate friend is getting to know them thanks to the responsiveness they get in return when playing with their Zoomer Chimp. Overall, this toy is well built and offers good value for the price.
