Pleo RBPleo RB, the robotic dinosaur, is our new pet. You may remember the "older version" of Pleo that came out a few years ago.  This is the new and improved Pleo that boasts 14 sensors, life-like rugged skin, and a larger collection of accessories to use.
Pleo's highly advanced sensors detect the toys and cards that he comes with and he reacts to them in an unique way.  This Camarasaurus actually matures daily as he interacts with his owner.

When we got Pleo, he had infant like reactions and then started to do more each day.
We got to teach Pleo his name (which we kept Pleo) since he has voice recognition. We also taught Pleo some different skills using the learning stone. Pleo can dance, bow, count, sing, and "come" when he is taught.  He knows what time of day it is and can feel temperature differences.  If you hold him upside down he will even squeal and squirm rapidly to get free, similar to a real pet. 

Even though this toy is expensive, Pleo provides ongoing fun and learning possibilities. 
It's not intended for children younger then twelve, but my five year old is excellent with Pleo. This sweet dinosaur has to be taken care of to a certain extent, similar to a pet. This helps to teach responsibility to children who may want a real pet some day.
I also love that unlike a real pet, Pleo is "mess free" and can be turned off.
Each day is a new adventure and my daughter has forgotten about her dolls for the past few weeks as we have been consumed with loving this little dino.

Suggested Improvements:
Pleo's skin does wear a bit in areas that are constantly touched. Also, we would love to see Pleo walk further distances at a time. Other than that he is our favorite toy by far!
