Seems like this year in the toy world it is robot this and robot that. Well now it’s a robot monkey! To be fair, Zoomer are great at creating fun robot animals, and this chimp will probably be uber popular. If you thinks robots and monkeys go hand in hand, go ahead and read our full review below.
I don’t need a crystal ball to predict that his fantastic robot chimpanzee is going to be one of the biggest sellers for Christmas 2016. Last year the Zoomer robot dino won toy of the year and it looks like this year they have a strong chance of winning again.
Over the last few years as well as the Zoomer Dino we have had dogs and kitties but zoomer have really over delivered with this new toy with its functionality and features.
This hi-tech robot chimp is not released until later in the year but from the videos available and what we are reading about it, it looks like the manufactures have put a lot of work into it.
Looking at the packaging – there is a terrible pun of the Zoomer robot Chimp being your ‘Prime- Mate’ it did make me laugh though!
It is described as being able to carry out over 100 tricks. It also reacts to 10 voice commands, has light up eyes and dance and farts! Its eyes change color to represent what type of mood it is feeling.
Well I’m forty and I would love one of these for Christmas! But joking aside this toy is for ages 5+. Any younger and it could easily get damaged. Kids who enjoyed the previous Dino robot toys seemed to be in the age 5-12 bracket. Boys or girls would love this toy.
Things We Like About the Zoomer Robot Chimp
The main thing we liked about this robot toy was that it has a real personality. Zoomer has given it an articulated body and animated face so that it behaves like a real cheeky young chimp. It’s a bit crazy and farts and laughs and dances around.
We also liked that it has the ability to go from sitting to standing which makes it even more lifelike.
Things We Did Not Like About The Zoomer Robot Chimp
I like to be critical when I am reviewing toys but there is little not to like about this toy. I suppose it isn’t particularly educational but that could be easily remedied by getting kids to watch videos or books about primates while playing with the zoomer robot chimp.
Is The Zoomer Robot Chimp Worth The Money?
I believe that is a good price considering the impressive amount of features this toy chimp has. It does so many different things and actually has a personality that kids will become attached to. New responses are also unlocked the more they play with it. For these reasons I think that the toy won’t gather dust in the back of the toy cupboard and any child will get a lot of play out of it.
Zoomer could have easily just produced another robot toy and made a lot of money but they have gone out of the way to improve and innovate on their previous robot toys to produce a robot chimp that your kids will just love.
