Holidays are fast approaching. I’m already scoping out the latest and greatest toys that my kids will want this year. I received information on the DiscoRobo and thought it was very cool! I’m sure my kids will love it.
What is DiscoRobo?
OSY Robotics, the creators of mRobo (the humanoid robot for older tech fans) puts a new spin on robotic dance fun for younger kids with the new DiscoRobo. With an interactive app it puts kids in control of the choreography!
DiscoRobo represents a new generation of entertaining and interactive high-tech toys. Kids will be on their feet as they play their favorite tunes and dance along with this intuitive robot that uses beat detection technology to match the music with 56 booty-shaking dance moves! This futuristic robot displays eight engaging facial expressions that light up and change as he dances. Children can choose from four vibrant color options to match their personalities. ($45 for ages 4+)
A new smartphone app will allow users to guide and customize DiscoRobo’s dancing steps. With just a shake of the phone or a swipe across the virtual DiscoRobo on the screen, the robot will mimic the movements to the beat. Users will be able to record the real robot as captured by the phone’s camera for the hottest choreographed dance party. This app is available for iOS and Android devices.
For those looking for the ultimate dance party, the DiscoRobo Special Set features one DiscoRobo and one DiscoStage in matching colors, retailing for $80. The DiscoStage is a high quality portable MP3 player speaker with internal memory for music storage and music device connectivity. The stage comes complete with a special platform to stand DiscoRobo on its head for the ultimate break dance.The DiscoStage is also sold separately at $35.

I love that the toys are matching the electronics age we are in. I’ll be getting one of these to review soon so I’ll let you know what the kids think. 🙂
