Let's take a closer look
What can the T-Rex do?
The T-Rex stands on two legs and walks backwards and forwards, while moving his head from side to side; this gives him a wobbling gait which makes him endearing, especially to a younger audience. T-Rex is able to perform a variety of tricks; as an example, when he is fed his bone accessory, he will snap at it and then fling it out of his mouth.
Hand Gesture Technology
New hand gesture technology allows users to command T-Rex to walk, move his hands and tail and stop with a simple hand gesture. Users can stroke his face for him to respond with a roar! He will also snap at fingers just like a real T-Rex dinosaur! When he is hungry, children can feed him his included dinosaur bone and watch him eat it, fling it away and then do an enormous burp!
T-Rex is emotionally intelligent; his electronic eyes are able to communicate feelings of pleasure, anger and sadness. He especially likes being tickled on his pressure sensitive pads.
Is the Teksta T-Rex a good toy for my child?
Not only does T-Rex make an excellent interactive pet, but he is also an educational toy that teaches children about science and nature. T-Rex also helps to develop children's independence skills by encouraging them to take control of their play experiences.
