Interactive toys are all the rage this holiday season and few toys are as interactive–and downright fun–as the Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex. This toy combines a sleek exterior with an internal hardware fully mechanized to perform several games and tasks. Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex make noise, bite (gently), and even beat-box! Designed with advanced mouth and nose sensors, Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex can sense where you are which heightens his gameplay abilities. According to the official description:
Try your hand at a round of Sound Warp, Hot Hands or a bone-chomping game of catch! Just toss his Bone Accessory into his mouth and watch him bite down and catch it. But watch out! It’s not always fun and games; if you pull his tail, Z-Rex will let out a dino sized fart! Remember, he’s full of bite! Use it to your advantage as you set him up in guard mode to watch over your room. He’s a loyal ‘chompanion’ who will growl if anyone tries to touch what he’s protecting. Push, play and chomp with Z-Rex as you get into mischief with his teeth chomping action. Discover Z-Rex and Chomplingz fun you can sink your teeth into! Zoomer Chomplingz — Full of life – full of bite!
Overall, this is a very well designed and enjoyable toy. Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex comes with a user-friendly instruction manual that makes it simple to understand how to program him to play specific games. Moreover, his eyes light up different colors depending on his mode. This makes it easy to see if you have programmed him correctly. Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex can see objects in front of him and he responds if you tough his mouth and tail–he can even catch his chew-bone (and other items) in his jaws. His biggest flaw is that he cannot actually move (zoom) across the floor. Despite having switches on his feet, he has to be manually pushed instead of programmed to move. Had he had the ability to move, this toy would be even more fun.
Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex can play multiple interactive games which makes it worthy of long-lasting engagement. Overall, I give Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for children who are interested in dinosaurs and/or interactive robotic toys. Fun fact: this is the same company that created the adorable “Zoomer Kitty.”
Zoomer Chomplingz Z-Rex is recommended for children aged five and older. It requires three “AAA” batteries (not included) and retails for $39.99. To learn more see the website, Instagram and Facebook.
