A remote control robot for kids that can dance and shoot missiles out of its chest

A few days ago I wrote an article about a self balancing robot for kids and today I’d like to continue that line of thought with yet another toy robot article. After all, Christmas will soon be knocking on the door and a toy robot is quite possibly one of the most awesome gift ideas for kids of all ages.

And since scientists are making tremendous progress in the field of robotics every day now and we get to hear about yet another major breakthrough at least once every few months or so, it’s now more important than ever to get your kid into the loop in case of a robot apocalypse. Who knows, maybe your little ones will be leading armies of humans against the intelligent machines in the near future.

Speaking of the imminent robot apocalypse, wouldn’t you love to have your kid play around with a toy robot that is capable of shooting missiles out from its chest and still have a witty sense of humor?

Yep, there’s a new fun robot on the market that can dance, walk around the room and, naturally, shoot at things. Thankfully it doesn’t do any of these things on its own as it can only be controlled using a remote. Phew.

Amazon is a great place to browse for potential gifts for any occasion anyway, so without further ado, let’s take a closer look into one of the products, namely the remotely controlled robot, that they have in store for us.

Main features of this fun robot

Well, for starters the thing already looks pretty bad-ass and is definitely worthy of admiration right out of the box. It runs on a total of 6 AA batteries (not included) with two going into each leg and two into the remote controller itself. Why do we need so many batteries you ask? Because it has a ton of epic features!

It can dance, it can walk up, down, left and right, it can optionally roll on its tiny wheels that are located under each foot which in my opinion make it look even more revering and its ultimate ability is to shoot missiles straight out from its chest.

Don’t worry, the missiles themselves are harmless unless of course one of them happens to get stuck in your nose or throat or some other strange place so use with caution. The manufacturer has labeled the toy suitable for ages 6 and up.

It’s even more fun to play in a room with lights out because the robot has some fairly cool built in LED lights for a rather wonderful lights show.

There are plenty of happy customer reviews on Amazon where people are saying how this robot will provide hours upon hours of fun and entertainment.

The package includes a total of 9 foam missiles and you can buy them separately in case you happen to lose some of them.

One of their customers, Brandy, said that even though the missiles look like they could potentially stick to glass surfaces, his nephew had no luck in achieving this feat despite trying for quite a while. I don’t know, maybe he was just doing it wrong?

The remote control toy robot doesn’t move all that fast making it a perfect solution for younger kids in smaller houses or apartments, it weighs about 3.1 pounds (1.4 kg) and while it’s meant to be played with on a smooth surface like parquet, it can still successfully maneuver on a not-so-soft carpet.

A remotely controlled self balancing robot toy for kids

Ever since General Motors installed the first industrial robot back in 1962 in one of their automobile factories in New Jersey, automated machines have been gradually replacing humans in various fields of work. Tasks that require high precision, repetitive movement, heavy lifting and anything else you can imagine that’s either simply boring, unhealthy or downright dangerous for a human being, are all performed by robots nowadays.

But it doesn’t stop there! Sure, most of these robots are still working in factories far away from the general population, but more and more intelligent machines are slowly starting to make their way into our everyday lives.

From highly popular household appliances like the washing machine, self navigating vacuum cleaner and automated lawnmowers to advanced robot butlers, self driving cars and even children’s toys, I think we can all agree that the robot takeover is only just beginning.

Remote Control Balancing Robot

Why bother to encourage your children to interact with other human beings when you can shut them in a room together with a self balancing robot that can dance and have the rest of the day free to do whatever you like?

All jokes aside, this self balancing robot can be a real eye opener for both you and your child and may be considered a gateway into the wonderful world of robotics especially because in the future we are going to see many more advanced machines seamlessly merge with our lives (and with our bodies as well, but that’s topic for another article).

It just makes sense to have your young ones get familiar with robots sooner rather than later not just for the hours of fun and entertainment a toy robot can bring to you and your family, but also because in the future the only available jobs for the average folk are going to be various supervisor/overseer positions for robots and intelligent machines.

So what can this toy robot do?

Well, apart from being the perfect sidekick for a mission to take over the living room and steal the remote control for your television set, this fun robot can drive wherever you want it to, play music and dance at the same time, carry small objects for you on its detachable tray and even respond to your hand gestures. Thanks to the powerful 2.4 Ghz remote controller you can control your robot from up to 80 ft. away.

Oh and by the way, if your friend happens to have the same model, you can invite them over and organize a boxing match between the two.
