I just had to do a review on the U-Command Wall.e, purchased at Toys R' Us for my brother-in-law. Yes, you heard right, my brother-in-law. He saw this toy and thought it was so cool, so we figured why not get it for him for Christmas.
Wall.e stands about nine inches tall and six and a half inches wide. He has a button on the front of him which enables him to say his name and make different sounds. His arms also move and his eyes light up. Wall.e also comes with an infrared remote control which is programmable and allows you to make over 1000 action combos. His expressions will change, he can move and turn, he can do special turns, dance and more. We don't know a lot about the remote yet because the toy is packed nicely in its box and we don't want to mess it up since it is a gift. I'll give an update on how the remote works after my brother-in-law has had a chance to "play" with it.
U-Command Wall.e is for ages 6 and up, as there is a choking hazard because of small parts. This guy is really cute, and I think kids who are a fan of Wall.e would probably love this.
Update On Nov 25, 2008: I forgot to mention that Wall.e takes 4 AA alkaline batteries (included for the Try Me feature only) and the remote control takes 3 AA alkaline batteries (not included).
