Editor's Review

Even in homse with other electronic learning aids, this hand-held unit proved quite useful as it was small enough to keep handy in a purse. Particularly enjoyed as a distraction to keep a child occupied in the car. Available in either a music (Meastro-Bot) or numbers (Dec-Bot) themes. Note: Despite bi-lingual packaging, this is a unilingual toy.

Tester Reviews

I've seen my child (F3) progress in the last couple months.  Even if she puts it down & doesn't touch it for a couple weeks, she does eventually return to her "robie".  She's discovered new functions (did not know the eye area could scroll).  Susan Kong-Griffin, Parent

I liked that it had different modes for my daughter to identify shapes and colours, as well as to practise repeating back simple patterns. This was a toy she often went back to and picked up - she didn't bore of it easily. - Sonia Mendes, Parent
