Now there is the a new pet in town that is smaller than ever, the Teksta Micropet.
Robotic pets don’t come much cuter than these miniature pets that respond to your touch and voice and can be trained on their playsets!
Their eyes light up, they run around and make cute noises and best of all is they each come with their own playset that you can build just how you like it. We made our Teksta micropet a hamster type wheel that it could run around the lounge in with ours.
We received the Micropet dinosaur to review and Isaac enjoyed making a track for it to get around with lots of bumps for it to go over.
We also tried to make our track a loop but there were not enough pieces, however, if collect all four sets you can join them together to make one larger play world. The other sets feature a Puppy, Kitty or a Racoon.
Having the track certainly adds to the fun of having a Teksta micropet and it has sound recognition so it follows your voice. Sebby found this particularly entertaining as the dinosaur keeps following him!
When you talk to your pet, clap or make sounds it will walk, ‘roar’ and flash its eyes. If you pop you hand in front of his path it will automatically stop. The Teksta Micropet has a tendency to reverse when you are not expecting it but can train it to only move forwards by pressing and holding the button on top of his head and clapping.
I can certainly see us having lots of fun with our micropet and Eliza has already announced she wants to buy the Kitty version with her birthday money when they come out on 8th February.
