This is a brave attempt at making a robotic snake, but it does cheat a bit on motion, it doesn't 'slink', it has a wheel on it's tail and two on it's back and that's how it moves from place to place.

Pros: You seem to get your money's worth as far as size is concerned, it's HUGE, the lights on it's face are very cool looking especially in the dark, and it's not too bad on batteries, both amount and life of, and the tracking action works rather well (follows moving stuff in front of it), which kids and cats will love!

Cons: It's pretty feature and sensor lite, it mainly repeats set actions/reactions and has very little autonomy, and there's not much personality or cute factor in a snake, also it makes a terrible RC toy, if you can't see it's face then it can't see your remote, so when it gets stuck, which due to it's size it will, you will just have to go over and help it.

Personally I think it's under endowed with features and fun, and overpriced (at £80 at writing), if your kid wants it (and has already got the Quad) they'll still love it, but I think the Roboquad is both better AND cheaper.
