Last October I pledged
to make it my life's work to acquire Sega Toys' adorable Yume Neko Smile, a robot cat that momentarily seized the blogosphere with its lifelike movements and blinking eyes. True to my post, I emailed Sega and begged/cajoled/threatened them, sadly never to receive a reply. Then, early in December, a kindly commenter left word that CScout Japan
were selling Yume Neko - I instantly fired off an email hoping to get a PR contact; instead, they were generous enough to send me one themselves.
And that brings us up to now, and the story of how a white, furry automaton stole my heart.
