I bought a Teksta interactive robot puppy for each of my children as Christmas presents.
What swayed me towards Teksta was the fact that it has over 150 'cool' functions and emotions,also because the Teksta's website claims to offer new programs.
I noticed that some of the more expensive interactive dogs didnt offer as much.
The design of Teksta appearance wise is fantastic, looking rather cute,on the other hand movement is limited.
Teksta will only walk in a straight line,move ears,tail,and change eye shape.
Teksta can be taught to do a number of tricks
for which you have to follow sequences with the buttons situated at his side,neck,head,nose,or mouth ooh plus the light and noise sensors.
Teksta has basic functions like barking,crying,walking,wagging his tail and so on.
My children aged 5 and 7 found it frustrating
to try and programme Teksta to do his everyday tricks,for example:
Taken from the instruction manual-
-Press and hold MODE BUTTON and NOSE SENSOR
for 3 seconds until you hear four beeps followed by "Thanks".Press NOSE SENSOR again to confirm.
I think that this is too much for children
especially when Teksta is recommended for those aged 3 years and above.
Even I was a little confused with a lot of the instructions and Im 25.
Teksta is very noisy in movement and sound.
I dont think his few words are very clear.
Basically this toy will drive you potty,I would rather have fifty furbies in my house than one of these.
At least I could understand the Furby.
It certainly doesnt seem like it does 150 things.
I did visit the website www.Tekno-Robot.com
in the hopes there might be some further tips for Teksta.
Unfortunately I didnt find anything that wasnt already in the manual.
The packaging looked fantastic but took an age to get off.
Looks like this pup isnt for life and IS just for Christmas.
