I strongly recommend this robot for young teens who show an interest and talent for how things work.

Now I will say this though, he has some issues with getting back up if he falls on carpet, but other than that, he's way better than we ever expected.

Isobot is so much fun to work with .The programing of the robot is easy if you take the time to read the manual.

This little guy is very sophisticated and moves like a human. He can balance on one foot and even does the Hula! Easy programming to create long performances of your own. The eneloop batteries last a long time and I actually bought several more sets for my other gadgets. Well written instruction manual, neato carrying case. Small and cool!

Right to the details first...

^++ The Pros ++^
+ Excellent price to functionality ratio. It walks, it talks and it can balance on 1 leg...It can even do a somersault (to name just a few things)...All for about the price of a Robosapien V2. But in terms of robotics ability the V2 is a $0.99 Store cheapy in comparison.
+ Comes packaged with 3xAAA Eneloop batteries and a battery charger. This is an excellent addition. If you're not familiar with Eneloops brand batteries, in a nutshell they have an outstandingly low self-discharge rate while in storage. So no worries if the Robot goes off to storage for a bit, the batteries will still be decently charged when I-Sobot makes a re-appearance
+ It walks. Not some gimmicky pseudo walking, I-Sobot actually stands on 2 feet and takes human-like steps.
+ It can get back to a standing position, using 1 of 2 sequences based on whether it's on its back or belly.
+ It can balance on 1 leg and do kicks (front kicks, like kicking a soccer ball, and side-kicks like doing martial arts).
+ 4 Modes of operation:
+++ Remote Control Mode: Essentailly a real-time mode almost like a video game, where your inputs have almost immediate results.
+++ Special Action Mode: Enter in special key sequences and I-Sobot does pre-defined actions, such as doing a re-enactment of the "go ahead, make my day" from Dirty Harry.
+++ Program Mode: Enter in multiple sequences from the other modes and save them to be played in order
+++ Voice Command Mode: I-Sobot reacts accordingly to certain voice queues.
+ I-Sobot was conceptualized and made in Japan.

Like every product, I-Sobot has it's good and bad parts. For example, it's an incredibly agile machine with 17 servoes and an internal gyroscope (something that many larger bots do not come with standard). Coupled with limited voice recognition (not simply sound detection), sound effects/speech, and programmability, it's an impressive piece of hardware. It's got a helpful community that supports it with things like the third-party solution "Robodance" that allows you to control it with a laptop and even with the Nintendo Wii controllers.

The not-so-good? It has no fully-autonomus mode, i.e. no obstacle or edge-detection. It also has more limited battery life than other entertainment robots like the Robosapien line (it does come with rechargeable batteries and its own charger so the power situation is somewhat mitigated). Also it's a tad fragile (I wouldn't push it down the stairs).

Depending on the intended use of the robot, users may like it or not. I-Sobot is good for a simple and yet flashy introduction to robot programming and behavior (not to mention many of its more witty routines). It is not as versatile as a Robonova, but then it doesn't cost anywhere near the 'Nova's price.

I have been a fan of robot toys ever since I received an original Lost in Space robot for Christmas when I was just a little kid. That began a life long love affair with robot toys. From Transformers to Go-Bots, Shogun Warriors to 1950's tin lithograph toys, to the Japanese Mecha toys like Gundam and Votoms, I've collected them all. But I've never seen anything quite like TOMY's i-Sobot, easily the most sophisticated robot toy ever made.

Standing about 7" tall, the i-Sobot is capable of movements, which dwarf any robot toy that has come before. Forwards, backwards, side-to-side, diagonal and that's just the tip of the iceberg. This toy is so articulated and so nimble, that it can do handstands, the splits, somersaults, and other exercises. It can perform complicated martial arts moves like karate chops, roundhouse kicks, combo punches and back kicks. Oh, but were just getting started on the hundreds of moves that this wireless remote control wonder can pull off.

i-Sobot is a total ham when it comes to performing in front of a captive audience. I had a group of friends over not long ago to watch a basketball game and we spent a good two hours playing with the i-Sobot. Everyone wanted a turn! This guy can dance a hula or perform a scene from a western movie. He can play air guitar and impersonate different animals. He can display an incredible range of emotions including excitement, regret, pain, worry, love, and more. But this guy doesn't just move around, he also talks in a vibrant, clear voice and has a vocabulary of over 200 words and phrases.

The i-Sobot has four different operating modes. There is the standard remote control mode which allows you to move him around at will and perform any of several dozen different actions.
