Must Have Robot: Pleo


It seems that Ugobe, the parents of Pleo, have been undergoing some financial hardships like the rest of the country. In the past six months, the company has gone through 2 CEOs, closed its California office and reduced its staff to 20 in its headquarters in Boise, Idaho. Over 100,000 of the robotic dinosaurs have been sold since its January 2007 launch. Current President and COO Doug Swanson says, "Not only are we alive but we are busy."

Ugobe plans on updating their pet and have plans to come out with another product sometime this year. Because we don't want our fave pleosaurus to become extinct, we make Pleo our Must Have of the week.
