“What’s that you’ve got there, little Johnny?”
“Oh, hi mister Tom, it’s a robot skateboarder! He has an mp3 player attached to its leg to listen to while he skates around, and there’s a USB and SD memory card slot too!”
“No, Johnny, I meant that cigarette in your other hand. Come on, let’s go and find your mother”
“Dammit, no college fund for me!”
This is just an example of the scene I didn’t witness this morning on the way into work, but I could’ve seen it had ZELOX’s RC Skate-Botz toys been available. The plasticy-looking figures trundle round on wheels and play music via the in-built mp3 player.
Will kids want them? I guess it depends on price, and the speed that other – better – robot toys come to market. Personally I’m not impressed, but then I’m not 12.
