Have your kid's already started dropping hints on what they want for Christmas? We recently got to test out a couple of toys from Toys”R”Us that I know will be at the top of every kid's wish list this season. CHiP and COJI, two interactive robots by WowWee are not just tons of fun, they take imagination to the next level! CHIP and COJI, two interactive robots by WowWee are not just tons of fun, they take imagination to the next level! My little toy testers couldn't wait to play with these guys, so we powered them up with Duracell batteries and spent an afternoon seeing what they could do.
Imagine owning a dog that can do cool tricks minus all the clean-up. Meet CHiP, an intelligent, friendly robot puppy that's hardwired to be your new best friend. Using advanced sensors and smart accessories, CHiP is always alert, and ready to play. Tell him what you want him to do and he'll obey your voice commands.
Pull CHiP out of the box and he's ready to go. He even knows when he needs a recharge and will head to his SmartBed to dock himself up. Wanna play fetch? CHiP comes with a SmartBall that runs on four Duracell batteries. Give it a roll and he'll run to recover it. Tell him what you want him to do and he'll obey your voice commands. Or download CHiP's app and you'll really get to see all the fun things CHiP can do.
We love how fast CHiP moves and how easily he maneuvers around the room, switching from forward and reverse to side-to-side motions with incredible ease. Pat his head, pet him, touch his nose or pick him up and he'll respond like a real dog.
Use the SmartBand accessory that CHiP come's with to give him commands or have him follow you around. Reward him by pressing the thumb's up button, another way to program CHiP to behave. How you respond uniquely shapes his behavior, so no other CHiP is ever quite like yours.
Next up, we got to have some fun with COJI, a fun toy that teaches your child the basics of programming using a language they already know: Emojis! Kids can select different images to display on COJI’s screen with sounds to match. COJI challenges your child with skill-testing games that encourage critical thinking.
Use the app to string together emojis to solve problems and control COJI's actions. You can also use a smartphone or tablet to test out his driving skills with the remote control. COJI even reacts to physical stimulation such as tilting and shaking.
Hard to believe just how far toys have come from the one's we played with when I was a kid. It's incredible to see how a couple of cool toys from WowWee and some Duracell batteries can power imagination and inspire your child to learn new skills. Check out COJI and CHiP next time you're at Toys”R”Us or go ahead and order them online before the holiday rush hits.
