Zoomer Robotic Dog from SpinMaster Toys

  Disclosure -  I received a product to review from the company. Opinions expressed in this post are strictly my own

One of the  coolest toys I've seen in a long time is the Zoomer Robotic Dog from SpinMaster Toys.

My kids spotted the Zoomer at the store a few months ago, but I wasn't too excited about it.  In my past experience, robotic/rc toys look cool but don't usually work very well.  Sometimes they don't actually do anything, sometimes they only work part of the time, and usually they are hard to control.  I thought the Zoomer would be similar to all those I've played with in the past, but it was vastly superior.

The Zoomer Interactive Dog actually listens and interacts with your child.  Like a real dog, you can give it voice commands, and train it to do tricks.  All you do is tap his head, then speak.

 Sometimes it listens, sometimes it doesn't.  

The great thing about the Zoomer is that like a real dog, the more you play with him, the more tricks he learns.  But unlike a real dog, it's hypoallergenic, and there was no mess to clean up when he decided to be naughty.
Some of the Zoomer's Features includes
  • Flexible tail for real wagging action 
  • Rotational core allows him to fully roll over 
  • LED eyes with blinking and tracking capabilities (he can follow you on a walk)
  • Voice command receiver for intuitive play 
  • Chest sensors track objects and know when you’re scratching his belly 
  • Easy trick button shows you a sneak peek at Zoomer’s tricks  (this is great for younger kids that can't give commands clearly)

To Buy - The Zoomer Interactive Dog has a SRP of $99.99 and is recommended for ages 5 and up. It comes with the Zoomer Dog, a usb cable for charging, a training checklist, and an instruction manual.  My kids love it so much, that we just  bought a 2nd purple Zoomer dog (available at Toys R Us).  And a little insider tip, the Zoomer is currently a Hot Toy Item at a few select stores, and is priced at $79.99 right now!

  1. This is super cute. I like that it can roll over and wag his tail. This would be a great gift for my son for Christmas.

  2. I saw a commercial for these the other day & my son and daughter were both asking if they could have one. I was skeptical about them because of the robotic toys I had when I was a kid but after reading this, I really think it would be a great toy for them & their just at the right age for it! Considering my husband is allergic to dogs this is just about the perfect alternative as well.

  3. This little guy is pretty cool. I love that the more you play, the more he knows and learns! What a fun present for a whole family!
