Cozmo Robot Review

Cozmo Robot

The new Cozmo robot by Anki is making waves amongst reviewers and consumers alike, but not necessarily for the technology it contains, rather its character. From the moment you charge Cozmo and he makes eye contact with you, to the first time he repeats your name back to you, to the endearing way he doesn’t seem to like being handled – wriggling until you put him back down again, this cute robot is a clear fighter for the number one robot toy this Christmas. Cozmo will ask you to play a game with him, he will nudge you, and if you don’t want to play with him he will be sad, but only for a short time.

The tagline for Cozmo is “Big brain, bigger personality” which gives you a clear idea of the route the manufacturer went down with this one, perhaps aiming to outdo the other robots available – while being technologically advanced for toys, some maybe lack in the personality and therefore longevity arena.
