Buzz Lightyear Robot

The new Buzz Lightyear
robot is selling this Fall for $130-$150, and it proves
that robot toys still have a bit to go before they're really awesome.

There's some cool stuff to this toy, to be sure. It has original Tim

Allen voice work, which is nice, and it's obviously of solid
construction. But it seems like its uses are pretty limited. Once your
kid has said the dozen voice commands and has heard the quips and seen
the motions, there's not a lot to keep them coming back. Sure, there's
puppeteer mode that allows them to make their own sequence of motions,
but it just doesn't scream "play with me."
