What-nots from a mother who'd like to think she's cool when she most probably is not.

BeeBop, the Bubble Robot
He's not Danbo, but he comes pretty darn close.
Family Project Weekend presents... BeeBop, the Bubble-blowing Robot. Technology has never gotten so cute!
It's a gift from Tita Lulu, and my boys (father included) jumped on it upon seeing that shiny Kidz Labs logo stamp on the box. My boys and Kidz Labs --they're like THIS tight. *makes closing in and bumping against each other movements with 2 index fingers*
And how can you not go giddy with a toy that comes with a blueprint?!
And small parts that prove to be choking hazards to kids 3 and below!
And wires! Kids gotta love messing with wires!
Needless to say, this kind of toy is something your child should build with a parent in tow. Specially when it requires certain tools which only a father has.
I'm giving this toy a thumbs up on the father-and-son bonding meter. My boys were just all praises for their Dada the moment they heard the robot's inner mechanism whir to life.
Doll 'em up with some hi-tech-looking stickers and fill 'em up with bubble soap and ...BAM!... BeeBop, the Bubble Robot lives!!!
No, seriously, he DOES live. In fact, he's already had a rather terrifying run-in with a curious Super Mario toy right after production.
Plush toys and mechanized bubble-blowing robots --they just don't see eye to eye. *makes sad, slow motion separating movements with 2 index fingers*.
