Mechatars Robot Toy Review & Giveaway

0 Shares

Boys love robots.  It is a simple truth.  I must admit, being a girl, I don’t completely understand.  But there is something about remote technology that excites “boys” of all ages.  I have a wide range of boys in my house.  An almost two year old, four year old, seven year old, and thirty-five year old, yes, my husband too.  Aren’t men really just older boys?  They love toys too and can get almost excited as my littler guys.
Needless to say my guys were thrilled to receive a new robot machine named Wrexx from Mechatars.  All three boys (my husband wasn’t home at the time), were literally jumping up and down with excitement for me to take it out of the box.  There are two main made aspects of Mechatars.  A ‘play now‘ experience that does not require any additional additions or information.  And then there is an online gaming portion to this toy that allows you to connect with other players.

Here is an official description of the toy.

Mechatars are a new, interactive play experience iLove Robots call “blended reality.” Brand-new and launching this fall, Mechatars combines the best of online gaming and RC robotic toys by connecting the physical world and online world through cloud computing.
First let’s take a look at the ‘play now’ portion.  We were able to start playing with the Mechatar immediately after taking it out of the box.  Simply turn on the Mechatar and the remote.  The robot actually talks to you and lets you know when it has found the remote.  This is a neat aspect.  In a very stern voice the robot states “looking for remote” and then “remote found”.  My boys stood in stunned silence listening to their new robot.

My four year old insisted on being first even though the toy is geared more for my seven year old (the beginning recommended age is 6).  It is hard to share when you are four!  Luckily his older brother was willing to let him have a try first.  My four year old was easily able to control the Mechatar in this play it now portion.  Our Wrexx model quickly zipped around our drivaway to my boys delight.  There are also three different sound effects that will delight most boys.

Below I included a short video, notice how my older son asks for “his turn”.   While he was willing to let his brother have a turn first he was dying with excitement to try it for himself.

While merely playing with the remote control aspect of this toy is only essentially half of its capabilities it is still a worthwhile toy.  As a parent you could not even introduce your children to the online gaming portion and still have a marvelous toy.  My boys were thrilled with the ability to make their Wrexx model move all around, but of course my seven year old was interested in the gaming portion.  Older children will definitely be drawn to the battle aspect of the toy.

The online gaming portion of this toy, just like many others, contains an alternative world that involves battle.  With in the Mechatars universe named, Mechaverse there are eight elements.   These different elements give a weapon a unique ability in battle.  By  completing missions or battles you are able to further unlock greater potential within your particular Mechatar.  This aspect of the toy is definitely for older children.  While my seven year old is interested  I am not ready for him to join online gaming.  When I am ready for him to explore more possibilities online I just simply connect our Mechatar to our computer using a provided USB cable.  After setting up an account (which I have already done) he will be able to play and connect with his friends who also have Mechatars.  We did set up an account and explore the world, as you can imagine my seven year old thought it was amazing.

Here is a little bit more information about the online gaming portion.

Battle against other Mechatars to level-up and train for the fight against the Swarm! Equip yourself with 3 weapons and carry 9 different attacks to pummel, freeze, or incinerate your adversary. Choose carefully: each weapon has an affinity to one of the eight elements that control the natural flow of life in the Mechaverse. Depending on your opponent, one weapon’s element could be deadly — or leave you open to attack!

While the recommended beginning age for Mechatars is six years old I feel that younger children, certainly four and five year olds would enjoy the remote-control robot toy.  Even without the online gaming portion this toy is a lot of fun for children and worth the money.  Obviously if you have children of multiple ages this robot would be a great fit as older children could enjoy the online gaming world.

  49. My favorite Mechatar is KODAR bc of his description, I love how he is the fun playful optimistic LOYAL GOOD FRIEND one but when it comes time to defend or protect his friend he rises to the occasion big time!
    He sounds like THE PERFECT Mechatar to have as a friend for a 4 yr old little boy.
