The WowWee CHiP Interactive Robot Pet Dog was one of the cool gadgets I discovered during my visit to the Best Buy Tech Home earlier this year. My kids have been begging for a dog and seeing as how I am allergic to creating more work for myself, I’ve had to tell them no repeatedly. When I saw CHiP for the first time, I was really amused and told my daughters that this would be the only pet dog they could get. They were not quite as amused.
WowWee CHiP Interactive Robot Pet Dog has all the lovable qualities you’ll find in a real dog and will keep your child entertained for hours. Just like a real dog, the robot dog sits, fetches, speaks and responds to commands. You can roll the ball of the robot and he will bring the same back within the a few seconds. In addition, you can pick up his front legs up and then have him dance with the ball. You can even teach this robot dog some new tricks from time to time too.
Surprisingly enough, the WowWee CHiP Robot Dog actually does know how to show a little affection. Well, as much as you can expect from a robot. He responds to you through touch, the included SmartBand, and the free CHiP app. One fun trick your child can try is to rub CHiP’s nose and see him nuzzle right back.
The WowWee CHiP Interactive Robot Dog weighs 2.2 pounds, which is pretty light for a child to hold. . Dimensionally, the robot is 15-inch x 8.7-inch x 11.8-inch. It comes with a 1 Lithium Polymer Battery that helps in powering it for hours. Another cool feature is that when his battery runs low, CHiP finds his way to his Smartbed to recharge himself!
Again, WowWee CHiP Interactive Robot Pet Dog is an affectionate, lightweight, adorable, trainable and unique robot toy that will certainly keep children (and adults) entertained. It’s a really fun holiday gift for kids or teens, though I’d recommend it as a family gift, really. It’s also a great choice year round for a child that’s been begging for a puppy and could use a chance to learn to handle the puppy responsibly.
CHiP is available at Amazon.com for $152.99 and at Best Buy.
