I want a Pleo!!!

Has anyone seen these Pleo dinosaurs? I'm dying to have one! We went to the new Toy Store at the City Centre today and they had one out walking about... they are sooo dang cute!!

He was, at one point, rubbing his head against this guy standing at the entrance, then started wagging his little tail... gosh darn it... I want one!

Does anyone have one?

They have a wide range of emotions, each one is different, they start out as hatchlings... growing and learning as they go along. They play, like to be cuddled, sleep, graze, cry/whimper, feel emotions.... wow... I can't imagine it.

I think Naief is too young for one still... but not me!! :) I wonder how he'd interact w/ the cats??!!

If you haven't heard of what I'm talking about... go to www.pleoworld.com.

good day!

Oh, looks so cute. I want one too but it's $350. A bit steep!

Olivia said...

Oh yes, I'd want something that rubbed its head on my leg and wagged its tail - with no walkies in the rain or accidents on the rug!

I've just spent ages on the Pleo website watching the videos and then more on YouTube, check this one out: Pleo at Seaworld - pay attention to the dolphins too. Amazing. I have a theory about that but won't say anything yet...

olivia, how absolutely adorable!!! i'm sitting here watching little Pleo at Seaworld... and it truly touches my heart. i'm anxious to hear your theory... please do tell. :)

i think the little thing is just too adorable. i'd love to have one and think it'd be a great pet for you! :)

the queen, it's cheaper here... and from my last look, i didn't think it was 350... i'll have to see how much they are here.. i know they're not that much though.

dr.ftoom, adorable, aren't they?!

oh olivia, i just can't get over these dolphins and the little Pleo. all i can think is there's some type of frequency thing going on and the dolphins are tuning into it... or something else that's on a level that i can't understand.

i think everyone should watch this...

A pleo? No. But, I did see this HUGE dinosaur toy, in ToysRUs last night. I wonder, if they ever wonder, if they're scaring children, opposed to making them happy.

I posit that the dolphins can see the Pleo's Infrared sensor beams...

Anyhoo, forget Pleo! I rediscover AIBO about once a year and did so again while YouTubing Pleo. Nine years old, discontinued in 2006, and robotic AI has still not surpassed the AIBO. I wish Sony had not shut it down. Owners are still being surprised by new stuff their AIBOs come up with like new dances, even April Fools jokes.

Olivia said...

Oh cool, I found more on this AIBO Eric, he sure can talk back. I love his little adjustments when he moves.

Um Naief said...

i remember seeing this AIBO a while back... but the only thing i don't like is how much he talks. unless... it's all from his own vocabulary and not programmed and such. is that the case? does he come up w/ this stuff all on his own?? i also don't like the voice... aren't i picky!! ;)

and maybe you're onto something w/ the Pleo and the dolphins.. that could be it. i didn't even think about that.
