A press of BeatBo’s tummy or any of the buttons on his feet activates fun songs, learning content and dance moves. This futuristic friend even allows mommy or baby to record a phrase, and he’ll remix it into his favorite song! His 3 modes – Dance ‘n Move, Learning & Games, and Customized Sing-Along – “grow” with baby to make him a fun, entertaining companion for years to come! And all the while, he’s introducing baby to letters, colors, counting, music, cause & effect and much more!

The two older kiddos (and well, Mom too) love the “Freeze Dance!” party the best. Beatbo moves and grooves, and when the music stops, you freeze, and so does Beatbo! It’s a quick, fun way to get silly with your little ones and get them moving and grooving too.
The toddler’s favorite function is the record function: “Say something, and I’ll sing it back!” says Beatbo. He records about 3 full seconds of audio, then remixes it back with some sound effects, voice enhancements, and dancing along. Layla loves screaming “mommy mommy mommy mommy” over and over for him to record. It’s actually pretty hilarious, I love hearing my name called a gazillion times a day (And I love sarcasm. Sarcasm’s my favorite).
Mr. Sweetie (aka Dad) often finds himself turning on Beatbo just to hear the little robot’s version of the ABC song, which sings the traditional alphabet with a fun, new beat. This song is Dad’s favorite; he plays it for the toddler, the kids, the dogs, and just by himself sometimes for fun. Don’t tell him I told you! 😉
