WowWee MiPosaur Track Ball

Some toys are just so much fun that kids hate to stop playing with them. The WowWee MiPosaur Track Ball is one of those toys and it’s so fun. It’s like having a robotic dinosaur and a virtual prehistoric pet all rolled into one. This is recommended for ages 8-15.
The intelligent capability of the toy is nothing short of amazing and kids are going to want this dino bot. He can recognize the different ways that kids communicate with him.
He balances his body using two wheels on the back and he follows the trackball on the front. The trackball is what kids will use to begin the different modes that feature what the Miposaur is able to do.
The MiPosaur can interact with kids and obey their commands whether they’re given by gesture, through the TrackBall, or by using the app. Because the creature has a mind of his own, he does have a personality that will allow him to display moods.
So don’t be surprised if you give him a command and he has a bit of an attitude about it. Kids can play with the creature, train him and engage in games, too. The three ways that kids can engage with the toy are with the app, using their hand or having the toy follow the TrackBall.
When kids use hand gestures, the Miposaur will respond based on his mood. So how he reacts in one instance won’t necessarily be the same the next time a child does the same hand gesture.
He can react with excitement or he might show curiosity about what you’re doing. Sometimes, he won’t be too thrilled with the gesture and will clearly show that he’s annoyed.
There are 10 commands he’ll follow in this mode. If kids use the TrackBall with the pet, he’ll follow it around thanks to the BeaconSense technology in the ball. There are 6 game modes that can be used with the TrackBall.
These are going for a walk, fetching an object, dino in the middle, feeding time and dancing. Kids can also us the MiPosaur app to interact with the dinosaur. By using the app, kids can move the MiPosaur around, or take care of him when he’s hungry by giving him various things to eat – including prehistoric men.
They can cause the creature to fight against other MiPosaurs or dance along with the music that’s played. Kids can also create a trail for the creature to follow. If they do choose to use the path tracing, you need to make sure you have a compatible device such as an iOS or Android. You will need both AA and AAA batteries and these are not included with the purchase.

Dinosaurs are creatures that really spark a child’s imagination and now with the Fisher-Price Imaginext Ultra T-Rex, they can bring to life a multitude of adventures.
This toy is unique in that it allows kids to direct the adventure with the use of the Power Pads. By using these Pads, kids can control the T-Rex and they’ll easily be entertained with all of the lights, sounds and actions.
They can make him do all sorts of different moves to create adventures for their favorite dinosaur. They can cause him to walk forward to win the battle over an enemy or to fire projectiles.
The dinosaur even has the ability to throw around a boulder or two. Kids can use the Power Pads to have the dinosaur stand or use the powerful jaws to chomp. All while that the dinosaur is moving, there are a growling and other sounds that make the dinosaur sound real.
He also has LED lights for his eyes that add a bit of a scary touch. An enemy definitely won’t want to stick around when T-Rex is on the move. These LED lights also light up the dinosaur’s spikes.

He’s ready for anything and your child will be thrilled to play with this toy. There’s no end to how kids can have fun and create unique stories just for T-Rex. With toys that spark creativity such as this one, it helps kids to not only develop a stronger sense of unique play, but teaches them how to handle multiple actions at once.
During the play time with the dinosaur, kids will be busy making sure they get the projectiles launched. Or, they’ll make sure that they track down enemies and see to it that they end up delivering justice by putting them in jail.
They can have plenty of adventure with the glider that the figurines can use. If kids use the Power Pad that’s on the dinosaur’s hip, then T-Rex will rise to an impressive 2 ½ feet in height.
A different Power Pad controls whether or not the dinosaur will toss out projectiles. Kids get to decide what the adventure will be and what accessories will be used.
Another Power Pad touch from kids can direct the dinosaur to head forward as if under his own steam and he’s quite fearsome to observe in action. With the purchase of this toy, you’ll receive 3 figures that come with helmets and other items such as the glider.
Also included are a total of two sets of things the dinosaur can launch – 4 projectiles and 4 boulders. The toy is a must have for any child who loves dinosaurs.
