A new series of robot toys by robot toy maker WowWee has just hit the stores. The "Alive Cubs" robots series includes a white tiger, a lion, a polar bear, and a panda robot cub.
The plush animals have their own personality, but unlike other robot toys were not designed to be easily customized or programmed.
Early reviews are carefully positive, stressing the cubs' cuteness factor. However not everybody is convinced, with one member of our forum saying that such robots are "way down in the uncanny valley" - in other words, they look a bit creepy.
The cubs are recommended for children 3 and up, and sell for around 40 euros or 60 dollars.
