It seems like I have been waiting forever to get my hands on the Ugobe Pleo, the robotic baby dinosaur that I first read about on my way home from CES 2007. A year has passed and even though Wal-Mart canceled my Pleo order right before Christmas, in the end Ugobe came through with a review loaner for me to enjoy.
This is a mighty dangerous proposition, of course. They loaned him to me for two weeks, and the clock is now ticking. Will I be able to send him back without any regrets? Or will I have to pay for the sample I mysteriously lost (wink, wink). Only time will tell.
In the meantime here is my unboxing as well as a video of Pleo waking up and interacting a bit…enjoy!
And now you can watch as I play with the newly awakened baby…and yes, this video is insanely long – feel free to skip through, or watch the whole thing and laugh at what a dork I am. It’s okay, you aren’t thinking anything I didn’t think when I watched it the first couple times.
Avah and Pleo are currently sleeping together on my desk. Say it with me now…awwww!
