Zoomer Dino is a trainable, hand- and remote-controlled robotic dinosaur that comes with a control pod, a USB charging cable, and an instruction manual. He is capable of a variety of sounds and movements including burping, chomping, and playing chase. Zoomer features mood-indicating eyes that light up when he is happy or angry; his eyes are blue when he senses a hand, purple when training, and red when angry. He also utilizes an innovative True Balance technology, which allows him to roll easily and smoothly on two wheels.

Well-designed and constructed, Zoomer Dino can keep up with the most rambunctious of toddlers (ie., mine) and entertaining enough to engage even my middle-schooler. Despite my typical aversion to battery-operated toys/products, we give a nod to the fun and playful Zoomer Dino.
