One of my favorite toys from the Chicago Toy and Game Fair was the stuffed animals of BROBO and friends. I am not a huge fan of stuffed animals at all because I just feel they sit there and take up a lot of space but these little guys are so cute that they just won me over. The company let me pick one to take home to my children and I chose TREX the dinosaur. I like that the tag has a little bit about the kids new friend. It says, “TREX likes pizza, sharing, drawing, knock-knock jokes, and pizza.” Must really be a fan of pizza just like my little guys! These are very soft plush animals and feature an easy clean surface. Check out the boys loving on their new friend, TREX:
BROBO and his friends also have a video on YouTube that I discovered. It’s a song to help kids learn numbers and Jake watched it with a huge smile and wanted to keep watching it over and over again:
Coming in 2012 they will have light up BROBO robots. I saw the prototype at the Chicago Toy and Game Fair and they lit up when you put their hands to their chests.
Their website is not up yet but BROBO and his robot friends can be found on Facebook.
(Disclosure: I received a BROBO robot to review but all thoughts are my own.)
