Special Comments:
This is a fun robot I had to have (a few actually).  It has a voice that is very young which surprized me.  It may even be a female voice.  It was made to interact with other Ottobots as well as the "Chi" line of other Tiger toys.  You really need to sit down with him and learn everything to gain full appreciation.  Otherwise he may appear to be a younger kid toy because of his young voice.  You can his answer questions with his hand buttons and light buttons on the top of his head.  His neck isn't made to move, and his arms have limited movement, but there is a lot to this guy and he is very well designed as far as interaction is concerned.  He has sensors that keep him from walking off a table even!
