Apparently the wild-eyed crazy successor to WowWee's Robopet robotic dog, Wrex The Dawg is the junkyard dog that looks like he was made from spare parts and a truly zany imagination.  With two legs in front and two wheels in the back Wrex The Dawg can happily zip around your home in autonomous mode, or obey your commands for hours of play fun using the included remote control.

Wrex The Dawg has three modes of behavior: Happy, Angry and Crazy.  He also has three bodily desires that he needs fulfilled: Exercise, Hunger, and you guessed it, Call Of Nature.  His wacky "slot-machine" eyes express his current mood and he can avoid obstacles and edges with his infrared sensors. Be warned, he has a fairly disobedient nature and is prone to "behavior malfunctions"!

Where To Buy

IMPORTANT!: How to compare prices and warranties on robots! (“Buy” links are below)

When you give a gift or buy something for yourself, you want it to last and bring joy to the recipient for a long time to come.  Robots have lots of moving parts.  Properly made as most are, they can last for years, but like any machine, some will break. This is why Hammacher Schlemmer is our favorite vendor for robots.  They are famous for their free product lifetime guarantee on everything they sell.  On electronics products that works out to a whopping 9 year warranty! They’ve been in business since 1848, well over a hundred years, so it’s a guarantee you can count on and it’s a no questions asked guarantee so there’s no hidden “catch” to it.  The average 3 year extended warranty on electronics can easily cost you 20% of the purchase price.  Since Hammacher Schlemmer offers theirs for free you need to subtract 20% off their price when comparing prices.  Actually you should subtract much more since it’s a 9 year guarantee which you can’t get anywhere else.  There are few things more painful to see than a heartbroken child whose favorite toy just broke and can’t be replaced.  Also you need to subtract the cost of shipping since Hammacher Schlemmer offers free shipping.
