My kids are getting older, and for Judah especially, we are finally entering the world of “big kid” toys. His play has been pretty low-tech up until now, but last week he gave me his holiday wish list, and it was filled with tech toy after tech toy with one major theme: robots. Robotic items are the hot toys this year, and there are so many out there it is tough to separate the best from the rest! Luckily, we scooped up the new Minion MiP Turbo Dave from WowWee to put to the test, and it came out a winner!
When choosing toys for my kids, there are few top things that I consider: Quality, price, and function. The Minion MiP Turbo Dave is available for less than $100, which right off the bat is better than a lot of the personal robots out there, and for quality and function, it seems to have a ton of things it can do. Packed with fun and games, this self-balancing robot speaks MinioneseTM the official Minion language, responds to clapping and hand gestures, and can be controlled from the Turbodave app on your compatible smartphone or tablet! Turbo Dave is super easy to set up – just download the app onto a compatible device, turn your Minion MiP on, and wait for it to pair. Once that happens, you are all set.
There are two different play modes: with and without the app. Using it without the app limits your play options to motion detected movements, but with the app you can control Turbo Dave like you would a remote control car, draw out a path for him to follow, have him talk, sing, make all kinds of sounds, and SO much more. Judah’s favorite thing to do is drawing out intricate paths for him to follow and watching him complete them! You can also play games using “cards” on the app that represent different characters, and Turbo Dave will interact with each character. And of course, he even has his own Fart Blaster!
Judah loves his Turbo Dave, and we even got a mini for Kaia, so they could play together. The best thing ever was the hour long giggle fest that happened when they put them together!
Turbo Dave is full of personality, and he is the only full experience robotic Minion that brings the Minion world to life! If this is on your list this year, go ahead and head here to score 20% off using the code 20MINIONMIP at checkout!
If you aren’t Minion fans, you can also check out Botsquad™, the dynamic duo that puts the fun in getting done! These cute RC robotic construction toy for unions has real pulling and plowing action that isn’t kid powered, and they have over 50 funny phrases and sounds.
