Updated Review of the Cue Robot from Wonder Workshop – New Features!

A Happy Faced Cue

Exactly one year ago I posted a review of the Cue Robot from Wonder Works. Wonder Workshop sent me that Cue Robot for free to review and play with. They asked me to tell you all about the new features. So, what better day to give you my honest opinions of the updated Cue Robot then a year later! There have been some updates to share with you on this amazing little robot with personality. Four personalities, actually.

One of the new updates to the app is that all of the Cue Avatars are now free. I think they used to be $5 each. Each of the personalities are distinct and have different names. There are avatars Charge, Zest, Pep and Smirk. Each of their personalities are fun in their own way. We enjoy them all but I think that Eva likes Pep the best.

Cue can do so many things. You can drive Cue around like a remote control toy. You can chat with the Cue Avatar via text using the Cue App. You can code Cue to do simple as well as complex maneuvers. It is a great little robot to use to learn the basics of coding. You and Cue can also go on little missions together. Finding treasure and so much more. In the video below we are searching for treasure.

The Ben 10 Omnitrix-inspired Alien Creation Chamber from PlayMates Toys Gives Kids Endless Alien Possibilities

Andrew makes alien Creations at Sweet Suite

Ben 10 is one of Andrew’s favorite shows, but he doesn’t get to watch it too often. So, when making this video he was a little light on remembering the names of the aliens. I wasn’t that much better. Playmates Toys sent us the Ben 10 Alien Creation Chamber toy for free to play with and review. This was a toy that Andrew took to at Sweet Suite. We had to pull him away and when he finally did leave he had a ton of little aliens to enjoy. The opinions that are expressed in this review are our own.

At Sweet Suite there were so many toys and it was the first time that I was able to bring the kids. While they occasionally got hung up at one table or another they generally moved along to the next. Not when we got to the table that had multiple Ben 10 Alien Creation Chambers and a table full of alien parts! Both Andrew and Eva were drawn to this table and enjoyed making alien after alien. Andrew liked it so much we left him playing (within earshot and eyesight) while we went a couple of tables down. He had a grand old time playing with this and so I had to ask for one for review. Once we unboxed it and made the video below, he continued to play with it and make alien after alien.

I think we missed a key thing in the video and I will explain it a bit through the photos below. Continue reading The Ben 10 Omnitrix-inspired Alien Creation Chamber from PlayMates Toys Gives Kids Endless Alien Possibilities
