oobject.com has a very cool list of 14 toy robot commercials. Some of these are pretty mundane but a couple of them jumped out at me and I’m wondering if they inspire some memories for you as well.
The first one to grab me was Chatbot. You remember this one? I seem to remember this one being at a couple of my friend’s houses when I was growing up. From what I recall, it provided about five minutes of fun, until my friend’s sister got sick of us recording dirty messages into it and walked out of the Chatbot’s rather limited remote control range. If my memory serves, these ended up in a lot of garage sales not long after.
You have to hand it to the 1980’s as that decade sure had it’s share of interesting robot toys. Oh, and one more thing: I realize it was the 80’s but were those hats that kid is wearing ever really “in”? I’m gonna have to say “no”.
