Months ago Ben saw this remote control dinosaur on display in WalMart and you should have seen this kid's reaction! This is the coolest toy we've seen in a long time. It's a bit advanced for him but it's great because it's even fun for Daddy.
Megan, of course, wanted Barbies. It's kind of her thing now.
Between gramma and grampa Olivia had no end of snuggles.
She kind of hard to reist that way.
This dinosaur is amazing. Truly. "Roboraptor" will roam his environment in free-roam mode if left alone for more than three minutes. A little scary if you're a baby or a dog.
Roboraptor will avoid obstacles using his infared vision sensors and wil occasionally stop moving to hear any sharp, loud sounds. Roboraptor has three "moods", hunting, playful and cautious. Hunting is a little scary but playful is actually pretty cute. Needless to say this thing is a hit in our house. it doesn't hurt that Ben is, and has been for years, obsessed with dinosaurs.
Dustin got to open his present from my brother-in-law early so he could get maximum playing time out of it. This is the beginiing of a new obsession os well over here. There were few moments over the holiday when this thing wasn't being played with or tinkered with.
What can it be?
Let the flying begin.
I personally don't understand the appeal. The plane has about ten minutes of flying time (that is if you don't nose dive it into the dirt first). And then they would spend hours puttering around with the things fixing and reinforcing and taping pieces of the kids crazy carpets to the wings so it would be stronger. I wonder if they had more fun fiddling with those machines than they did flying them.
Then again, maybe not....
Stay tuned for parts two and three. And maybe four if I get my act together.
