  • if you thinits a waste simply tell him hes too big for it....but i just looked it up and it is in no way a toddler toy. It's a remote control robot.

  • I don't think it is just for 5 year olds. I wouldn't buy it for a toddler, a 3-6 year old yes. I haven't seen it for $150 since last year....most places have been running it for $80-$100 on sale. If we would have had the money this year, we would have gotten it for out three kids.

  • No way its just a toddler toy. We got it for my 3yo for Christmas this year and he loves it but the controler is to complicated for him, it has more than 3 buttons actually 6, walk, move head, open mouth, random action and I forget the other one. I have had older kids at my house since we got it and they love it most the other 3-4yo are scared of it. The thing is freakin awsome my DH and his friends even play with it. Well worth the $125
