Meet McDonald's Happy Meal RobosapienPosted by Jeff Block on Friday, 23 February 2007
McDonalds and WowWee have teamed up to create seven cool new WowWee Robotics Happy Meal toys. The toys are available (for now) in the US and Canada only, but you can get them at any McDonald's. They are rolling out two per week starting today (Friday, February 23rd), so the promotion will last four weeks in total. I'm going to try to collect all seven, and post some pictures, so stay tuned. Also, keep your eyes and ears peels for kid-directed tv, radio and online advertising, which is supposed to roll soon. Anyone catches any of them, definitely post!
The McDonald's Happy Meal site has more information, interactive demos, and fun stuff for kids of all ages concerning our new little robotic friends.
And now, without further adieu... Meet Happy Meal Robosapien and his pals...
Walking Robosapien walks when you wind him up.
Once switched on, Roaring Roboraptor roars when you push a button on his back.
Once switched on, Talking Robosapien V2 speaks when you press a button on his chest. He greets you just like his big brother, "I am WowWee Robotics model RSV2".
Pull Running Roboreptile back and release, and he propels himself forward on wheels hidden beneath his legs.
Walking Robopet can go for a walk with you and your other dog Fido, just wind him up and let him go.
Chomping Roboraptor is chomping at the bit to meet you.
Stand Up Robosapien V2 can stand up all by himself. Switch him on, lay him down, press the button on his chest, and be amazed as he stands unassisted.
