About WowWee: WowWee was founded in 1988 as an independent research and development and manufacturing company, focused on cutting-edge technologies. One of the most popular entertainment robots in the world, with global sales of more than 6 million units, the Robosapien robot was the first commercially available biomorphic robot – a fusion of technology and personality. The Robosapien humanoid product line evolved to include 2005’s Robosapien V2 robot, which added functionality like speech capability, and 2006’s RS Media™ robot, which featured a complete multimedia experience that allowed users to create and edit functions. In 2008 and 2009, the next generation of personality-packed companions—the RS Tri-Bot™, Joebot, and Roborover robots—was released and provided endless entertainment with different play modes.
Sweet Southern Lovin was so excited to have the pleasure of working with WowWee and check out a few of their products. I hate to say but I never heard of WowWee before they put out MiP. So it is safe to say I was very excited to be working with them. For our review we received three products from WowWee. Check out all of the products we received and what we thought of them:
About MiP: Equipped with GestureSense™ technology, any hand motion controls MiP™. Using its free app, you can drive it, play games & more all while MiP™ balances on two wheels!
Our thoughts: I have to say that this little technology robot is very cool. Last Christmas the girls got Zoomer for Christmas, but MiP is so much more advance and so much more fun. MiP has almost the same concept except he has amazing balance and is more responsive. On MiP you can find Gesturesense Technology which allows you to interact with him very easily. You can even clap in a sequence and MiP will play it back to you. We have played constantly with him for a few hours and I do not think we have uncovered half of the things he can do. We do know that he can play “follow the leader”, he can dance, you can teach him tricks, and he will roam around the house on his own and discover new things. You can also connect him to the App, which is available on Android and Apple and that opens up so much more you can do with him. It does require 4 AAA batteries, which is not included.
Tipster BUY NOW $49.99
About Tipster: Tipster is a playful robot friend who loves to play with you, be silly, move around, spin, and most of all… tip! The toy enables kids to experiment with weights and balances, although the curriculum is not overt.
Our thoughts: Kaylee really loved Tipster because it is more her age range. Tipster is very similar to MiP, but he is more easier to control and does not feature as many things. Tipster also helps little kids with their fine motor skills because it teaches them about weight and balancing and so much more. It does require 4 AA & 3 AAA batteries, which is not included.
ElectroKidz with Pink and Yellow Hair BUY NOW $12.99
About ElectroKidz: Elektrokidz™ are music-inspired collectables. Their hair dances to the beat of music! Elektrokidz™ spread peace and love through music. United by the Beat!
Our thoughts: I love music. I was in the chorus for almost 5 years in school, concert band for 3 years and marching band for 3 years. My husband loves playing his guitar and can play a song he just hears on the radio in just a few minutes. We both have music running through our blood, so it was no surprise when Aubreigh could listen to music all day long. She loved her ElectroKidz. It’s hair dances to the beat of the music. I love that it does not have to be connect via wires or anything. It just detects the beat and dances along to it. Batteries are included in this, so no need to pick up extras.
