Prime-8 – A Very Non Primitive Robot Toy – Hands on Review with Eleven Year Old

Seen the commercials for the Bossa Nova Prime-8 Robot?

When I first unboxed, my son and I played with it a bit.  Now, for those that haven’t looked at any of ther other videos… he’s a bit on the younger side of the spectrum.

And, we checked out the Prime-8 together.  He loved it.  But, he had a limited appreciation for the toy.  That’s not to say that he didn’t like it — much to the contrary (he was actually VERY jealous when it went for a car ride with me for this very review!).  But, there were certain elements that he either couldn’t appreciate or wait to see happen.

For instance, if you get this Prime-8 in to a pickle (banana?), he knows how to get himself out!  After going forward, do you need him to back it up a bit?  No need to pick him up, Prime-8 has that under control as well!

I think one of the best ways to see what I mean is to watch him in action….

Enjoy!
