Ages:12+
Price: $469 Buy Now

With a dinosaur appearance, PLEO rb is a next-generation robotic pet that teaches kids about biology and life cycles. It is designed to mimic life, which means PLEO rb thinks and acts independently, just like a real animal excepting its obvious robotic insides.

PLEO rb has organic body language, exhibits emotions, is aware of his/her surroundings and has recognizable behaviors. It’s an intelligent “toy” that responds to kids’ level of engagement – depending on how kids choose to interact with them, PLEO rb can turn out useless and without skills or into a self-sufficient dinosaur who’s learned to respond to things in its environment.
