Korean Playmate Kibot
Korea's latest playmate for kids is a multi-tasking monkey aimed at 3 - 7 year olds. The 8" tall wheeled Kibot can be controlled via cellphone by parents so that kids can video chat with others. Made by KT, he comes in grey or pink, responds to gestures by talking, teaches language with his 3.5" display and avoids obstacles when necessary. The bilingual Kibot is available for 485,000 won (~$447) with wireless packages available, and songs, stories and animation can be downloaded after purchase.
