We aren’t in the market for a pet right now, the added responsibilities of having one while planning a move cross-country would probably be the end of me. That doesn’t mean that the kids have stopped asking though, especially my oldest who has been lost without a furry friend to fill her need. When I was asked to review a few toys from Spin Master’s fall lineup which included Zoomer I knew that my oldest would be beside herself to review him, and she was.
Zoomer has been the perfect addition to our family, fun to train, a blast to play with, and best of all no messes to clean up! Just like a real pet Zoomer listens and learns commands and sometimes does what he wants to no matter what you say. With dog-like expressions and voice activated commands, Zoomer is the most technologically advanced robotic dog ever made.
- The more you play with him, the more tricks he will learn
- Flexible tail for real wagging action
- Rotational core allows him to fully roll over
- LED eyes with blinking and tracking capabilities

- Chest sensors track objects and know when you’re scratching his belly
- Easy trick button shows you a sneak peek at Zoomer’s tricks
Zoomer Includes: 1 Zoomer Family Pet, 1 USB Charging Cable, 1 Quick Trick Guide (User Instruction Guide). Recommended for Age: 5+ Suggested retail price: $99.99
We have had Zoomer for a couple of months now and he has been regularly played with and has a place of honor beside my daughter’s bed each night. I do recommend that if younger children are playing with him that they are well supervised so as not to break or twist his body accidentally. We have had to realign Zoomer a bit because my youngest gave him an enthusiastic hug, but it was easy to do. Zoomer now continues to charm my kids and their friends. We love him so much in fact that he made the top of our Top 10 Gifts for Christmas 2013 list!
Zoomer Dalmatian by Spin Master is available online and in stores for a suggested retail price of $99.
