robosapien robot toy

 

The first Robosapien rolled off the production lines at WowWee Industries almost nine years ago but its prohibitively high three figure price tag meant that it remained in the hands of only the most dedicated of toy robot enthusiasts.

However, as with most things technological the price of  WowWee’s flagship product has plummeted, to a level that now makes it available to a wider range of young robot enthusiasts.

Robosapien’s impressive feature list has been honed to perfection over the years, ensuring that it still remains one of the most advanced fully programmable robot toys out there, beware of cheap imitations, there is only one Robosapien.
