Description
My Keepon is a new interactive toy based on its cousin Keepon Pro-a research robot created by two scientists. Dr. Hideki Kozima and Dr. Marek Michalowski of BeatBots have been using Keepon Pro in playrooms to study social development and autism. When the pair of roboticists made Keepon dance on YouTube for the very first time instantly became an Internet phenomenon.

To answer the thousands of fans who have asked for their very own Keepon, Wow! Stuff has teamed up with BeatBots to create My Keepon, a lifelike robotic toy who can live in anyone's home.

So who is this charming yellow robot who stands two tennis balls high? My Keepon is cute, squeezable, and insatiably curious; craves your attention and touch; and has dance moves like you've never seen!

My Keepon sits atop its very own performance stage. Interact with My Keepon in Touch or Dance mode by selecting the appropriate buttons on the base of its stage.

Touch mode has an array of touch sensors. My Keepon responds to poking, patting, squeezing, showing its mood, and making expressive sounds. See if you can discover what makes My Keepon inquisitive, annoyed, or content.

In Dance mode My Keepon dances like nothing else! A microphone in My Keepon's nose allows it to hear the music you play (or your own rhythms). My Keepon listens for the tempo of the music and matches the beat with an uncanny sense of timing. You'll never get bored watching My Keepon dance to any style of music, from slow ballads, to high-energy disco. Each performance is a unique interpretation!

Batteries: 8 AA batteries are required (not included)
