ROMO is the robot friend for the whole family!


What if I told you there was a product that would help kids ages 8+ get excited about science, technology, engineering, and math?  Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? Well…there is such a product and its name is ROMO! What? YES!  ROMO by Romotive Inc. is a friendly robot from another world, built to teach kids the basics of computer programming and robotics through a series of adventurous challenges. Using an iPhone or iPod Touch as his brain, ROMO helps kids, ages 8 and up, get excited about science, technology, engineering, and math!

After downloading ROMO’s free updates from the App Store, kids can journey with him across the galaxy, playing challenging missions which introduce the simple concepts behind the programs and software that run our technological world.  ROMO is one of the first truly smart, evolving toys that also functions as an advanced communications device. His abilities and features expand over time as users find endless ways to play and learn with him.

We had the opportunity to receive this robot friend to try out for ourselves and had so much fun! What we loved the most is that Romo has his own personality and reacts to people.  Even our cat thought ROMO was pretty cool when he would chase after his cat toys!  (I will be posting photos through the month…had a camera mishap!) There is just so much that this little robot can do!
