When I showed the picture of the Bossa Nova Prime 8 Gorilla Robot to my 10 year old, he said “perfect!” That’s the kind of impact this toy has on kids. And that’s just from an image. Picture what the Prime 8 does when you turn him on:

Prime 8 can perform five different action games and is fully programmable to do tricks the user inputs through the radio controller. Check out the video of him in action:

Other things Prime 8 can do includes guarding your room (he launches darts at unsuspecting intruders), evading obstacles in autonomous mode, Prime 8 will also fall asleep and then go crazy when woken up (by clapping), and he will even laugh if you tickle him. And the controller hand set can even alter Prime 8s personality, making him completely interactive.

Cost is $99.95 from Amazon.
