I bought this for my daughter for Christmas already. I had read many of the reviews & wanted to get it in plenty of time in case I needed to send it back. I tested it & thought it was a pretty cool toy. Batterues installed easily & it worked straight out of the box. I didnt play with it for long, so I cant say if its durable. I know my daughter will love it. Uses AAA batteries, btw.
Had no idea what it was until my 9 yr old said she wanted only Mip for her 10th birthday... When did my HW the reviews were great and I thought it was very cool. When I gave it to her she went crazy! Bottom line great toy and even better service!
Pros:- High quality plastic- So far, it seems like it'll be pretty durable- The fact that it's translucent and you can see the innards is pretty cool- Instructions are clear- Apps are easy to use once you get the robot paired- Apps have fun activities- Rechargeable battery via micro-USB- Battery lasts a while (haven't measured exactly how long, but long enough that I haven't thought about it)Cons:- Apps aren't very clear on how to connect the robot. Took a few minutes to figure it out- After a few frustrating moments of trying to figure out why the robot only responded some of the time, I discovered that if you have both the Coder Mip and Mip app installed, and both apps are connected to the robot, the robot won't work or acts oddly. It makes sense that it can't be controlled by both apps at the same time, however, nowhere in the app instructions or in the robot manual does it say to avoid that. Ideally, the apps would detect which app you're using and auto-disconnect the idle one or at least warn you about the conflict- The robot does not auto-right itself. Once it falls over, you have to go pick it up. It'd be nice if it could pick itself up.
Mip is a nice little robot. We haven't really got into a lot of the features yet but he is of nice sturdy quality and active. One thing I will say is that I haven't experienced ours being a battery killer as other reviews have stated. He has had the same cheap batteries in since Christmas and is still going strong.
This little robot can even balance a bottle of Sprite and roll around the room with it and my ten year old daughter used the graphical programming App to write her first robot control script for it. It has captured her imagination and warmed my heart. I hear that you can even download an API and Software Development Kit for us grownups to paly with too!
My daughter has fun with the robot. She's 11. She learned to program it pretty quickly. It's as good as advertised. The robot can talk, and made funny sounds.
"Santa must have known I was learning to code!" Thats what my son thinks. This robot is a great idea. It comes assembled and can be controlled by an app on an electronic device. The one thing I dont like, however, is there are 2 apps available for controlling the robot. One requires some basic coding skills, the other app does the coding for you. Once your kid discovers the second app, all your hopes of them learning to code goes away! My son would say this toy is awesome, however, so I am happy.

the company is very helpful. i bought the warranty with MiP well worth it . the company is great with customer service they Want you to have great customer service. i had not noticed that the warranty was sent by email and it was but they sent the details again to me. then when my nephew was having trouble with his MiP working they emailed me as soon as possible. Once MiP started working my nephew had a blast and was playing with my other nephew's Mip Together. Great robot. this is a company that wants you be happy with the products you buys from them. Highly recommend.
First one sent have a broken Bluetooth. replaces it no hassles. It's super fun and very cute. Rechargeable batteries are a must. Kiddos love MiP! They want a second one now so that they can play together (using other games on the app).
It does what it says, it's fun for the kids to play with and appears to be easily programed, (it's just a kids toy, but that's exactly what I purchased it to be, some thought it should be more capable.). Mostly I've just seen them use the modes that are built in. I'd hoped it would be more effective at replacing the playing of video games and watching videos. One child seems to enjoy it more, the other likes it but video games win out.
My kids love MiP! The one problem we had was that he came with a partially charged battery. It looked like he should work straight out of the box, but he had to charge all the way before they could run him. After that it has been nothing but fun.
I ordered this robot for my grandson for Christmas. The robot was defective. It was a pleasure dealing with this seller. He promptly replaced the defective robot with another one. The second robot worked fine and my 6 yr old grandson loves his new toy.
Loads of fun for twelve year old. He watched the online videos and was immediately up to speed. He runs it with my LG phone and puts it easily through its paces. He plays with it a lot and has gone through two sets of batteries every four days. Important to make sure batteries are brand new and not past expire date. This is a very creative toy for a low price.
My grandson really enjoyed this little robot. On Christmas Day he had it delivering items like cookies and snacks around to people. It was amazing how much it could carry for it's size. For example, he "kidnapped" one of the younger children's small teddie bear and had the robot playing keep-away. They had a ball with it.
He's basically a member of the family now.
Bought it for my 7 year old nephew and he loves it! He watches tv with it, sleeps with it. It's become like his best friend. I would recommend for kids his age.
I bought this for my 10 year old son and he loves it. He needed a bit of help from Dad to get it together but that wasn't a big deal.
Have purchased two of these as gifts for my grandchildren, and they are thrilled with them!
Was a gift for my nephew who loved it. He played with it a lot at first, but then of course got bored like he does with the rest of his toys. Love when this thing dances.
Nearly a year later and my daughter is still playing with MiP! This item was a 2016 Christmas gift that was a winner with our then 10 y.o. iPad app, along with the MiP's ability to respond to hand gestures provides for a lot of fun. Highly recommend this item.
Bought for my nephew for Christmas. He is 5years old. And he can't stop playing with. We want to buy another one just to have a war. But it does do a lot of tricks and the app is really cool too and easy to work. Worth the money. I would recommend for sure.
I gave this as a gift to a boy turning 5 and it was a big hit, the adults have had a fun time playing around with it too and his sister (turning 8) insists she needs one for her birthday too!!
Great little you. My 9 year old love it. They were able to read the instructions & watch a few youtube videos & master the MIP in an hour. My only complaint is that it takes batteries - which is a detail I over looked. I really wish it charged!
It was smaller than i expected it would be.It works well with the miposaur.The boy whom this was for loved it, but i was underwhelmed.What's it to me?
My son watched videos about this thing before he got it and it lived up to his expectations. He likes to see how many things he can stack up on the tray. Get some rechargeable batteries, because this thing eats them up. App installs fine on Apple products, but needs to be a newer Android to work.
Bought one for my 8 year old for Christmas and he LOVES it. His 6 year old brother enjoyed it so much he used his own money (from Christmas ) to by one for himself. They have spent hours at a time playing with MIP. They enjoy using the app as well as the other features. Fun toy!
My teenage daughter loves him! We are technically challenged so we have not gotten him to work together with the dinosaur yet but otherwise very fun. Having a bit of trouble getting the responses to commands but probably human error.
The Parent Math and STEM Night was a huge success for our families. One particular 4th Grader went home with this HOT item!!!
My ten year old loves this robot! He figured out how to work it easily thru the app on his kindle.
Great little project for my 5 year old daughter.. Very simple to program and no assembly required.. Some people were surprised by the size in the reviews.. It's actually a pretty decent size and can carry coins or a dog chew bone etc. on the tray no problem.
Finally!! As grandparents, we are always looking for the right present for our grandkids. We finally did it. He loved his robot and played with it constantly. It makes a variety of sounds, so he can change it to his heart's content. He can even make it chase after his sister and brother! Which I am sure he loves. THANK YOU MiP!
Bought this for my son last year for Christmas and he still uses it to this day. He's going on 8 now and really enjoys it. I read some of the 1-STAR comments and think the issues are unfortunate but definitely not common issues.
These are nice little toys. The kids have fun with them, and they are pretty interactive. I do feel that the price point is a little high, and they eat through batteries so get some Eneloops.

Maybe I didn't read the description well before I bought it, but it was smaller than I imagined. My baby loves it though. Not too hard to program.
Michael F Brown
It works well (better than I thought.) It takes 4 AAA batteries and the power goes down pretty quickly. Maybe invest in some rechargeables.
we bought this robot as a Christmas gift months ago and my children love to play with him still. I don't think he would hold up very well after a fall though.
This is my first wowwee product and i gotta say it is amazing. My 8 year old is in love with this thing. He controlls it mainly through his ipad mini although it operates with hand gestures too. If you can afford two, go ahead and buy them as they can interact, race, and even "fight" with each other.
Unique little robot that makes the cutest sounds. Kids love it and comes with a booklet on how to use. There is different modes for different activities.
MiP works great, he is a lot of fun to play with and our entire family enjoys watching it explore, dance and seem to have a good time. Highly Recommend.
I bought this as a gift for my 7 year old nephew and he absolutely loves it. I also bought the dinosaur version as a gift for a friend's child, and that was also a bit hit. Now my nephew calls me Uncle MiP!
Purchased for an 8-year old. He loves it! My only complaint is that the batteries wear out fairly quickly. We are going through one set of batteries a day with this toy. I'm going to invest in a battery company because this boys loves this toy.
MIP was my daughter's big wish for Christmas, and it didn't disappoint. It's fun for her and her brother. I enjoyed getting it on sale, too!
I havnt received my MiP yet but will be here friday cant wait lol I am sure it will be as much fun as everyone is saying...I do wonder though if it works on Tile .....I received the MiP today other then getting the battery panel off him I had no problem with him. For those that are wondering if he runs on Spanish Tile type floors he had no problem at all...Love it and sure he wont just be put up on a shelf... once I download the app tomorrow will see all that he can do......
Now when I got the toy, I read the Manuel and charge the toy. But when I was trying to turn it on it did nothing. Now please learn from my struggles and watch a viedo on how to get this thing to work. Otherwise this is a great toy, even though it me two hours to figure out.????
Christmas gift for my kid. This is a pretty cool device.
Great product but wish it had a remote vs needing to use my phone
My husband and I were really excited at first, but it took our seven year old a bit of time to warm up to this little guy. It's pretty fun once you get the hang of it, but there's quite the learning curve - first just to figure out what it is you can do with it (my son can read instructions, but none really come with it, and we aren't really in the habit of letting him go look through youTube which is where ultimately we had to go get our intel). Once we got some initial info, then he was able to get into it a bit more and figure out more by himself. This isn't the first toy I have this problem with - I get that we are in a techy age, but I feel like toys should still come with useful intro info. Even the Wowee website is completely useless in terms of actual info, every time I did my search all I got was the page selling the product - 'here are all the features'.... that you will have to look all over the internet in order to figure out how to activate and use.... :) So for that reason, I give it four stars. And also because in the end, I didn't think it was amazingly terrific, to be honest (now I'm thinking about the programming app). I feel like there could be more flexibility with the app. So anyway, cute and entertaining - but not something I would absolutely recommend to all my friends.
Somewhat hard to use for a kid and doesn't come with the hand signals
Our 7 year old grandson loved this robot and still plays with it often!
Our grandsons love their robots. Great price and quick delivery.
Doesn't seem to live up to it's potential, could be the child operating it.
My ten year old played with this for hours a day for days on end. He absolutely loved the variety of programming that could be done with it. We did have issues with the battery not charging correctly but their customer service was responsive and a new battery is en route. Hopefully. :)
My 5 years old love it. He is using without the app just with the basic funcions . It works really well on hard wood floor and carpet. I read the batery won't last long I thought I have to replace everyday the 4 AAA and I got rechargeable batery today is day 2 and the bateries still good. The gift was a sucess !

I bought the first MIP in June for my grandson. He absolutely loves it. And my granddaughter loved it so much I bought the current one for her. They both enjoy their robots.
Great gift for my son. This robot is interactive and can respond to voice and him commands. It is fun to play with and stands about 12 inches tall and can lead itself around the house. My five-year-old is having tons of fun with this guy. I really like that I can control Him with an app on my cell phone to help my son have a good time. I would recommend this to anyone who coul him with an app on my cell phone to help my son have a good time. I would recommend this to anyone whose kid loves robots and science.
This was just Wow!! My child totally enjoyed this! Makes a great gift!!!
I ordered this for my 11 yr old grandson. He was thrilled to get it and has enjoyed it a lot. He said he can teach it to do lots of different things, and it can even interact with other robots like it, which a few of his friends have one.
Excellent product, my kid love this robot. Come with a rechargeable and very good battery.
We purchased this toy robot for my 8 yr old grandson. He played with all evening long on Christmas Eve and took it with him to show his cousins later that night. He's been teaching it new things and loves it when the robot dances. It's a great toy for kids that love gadgets.
By far the best toy of Christmas 2014. The kids are begging for another one so they can battle and race. And this is posting in April 2015; it's still being played with and still working!
Thanks for everything
perfect best toy I have ever bought.
My 9 year old son loves it. Uses the IPAD to program it to make different sounds and move around. Great first robot.
My 10 year old grandson loves it. Well made and should last him for long time.
The MiP was exactly what my daughter wanted. Reading the instructions is very helpful to understanding the different modes it can do. She has a lot of fun watching it move around and dance.
Grandmom of 3
I bought this last Christmas for my 6 year old grandson. He's still playing with it and still loves it a year later!
The robot is so cute! Smaller than I expected, but really easy to connect to an I pad! Really fun for a first robot!
My grandson loved it, that's what mattered. He 9 now.
Can't evaluate until opened and used.
My 4 year old son loves this!!
Bought this for my nephew for Christmas. He was disappointed at first because he thought he was limited with just hand gestures. Once the app was downloaded he found he could remotely control it and loves it. Just wish it was rechargeable.
Fast shipping. Cheapest price I found for this item. We haven't played with him yet since he is a Christmas gift for my son but I am pleased with everything so far!
This robot is tiny; less than a foot tall. However, it is very nice! My kids love it and are constantly finding new functions.
My 9 yr old son absolutely loved it! It is a great toy
Strange little robot than moves fast twisting turning back and forth and makes sounds, cool robot , dog loves it and 18 month old is scared of it
super cute. works well. battery is kind of an issue...but when are they not.
What a great toy. My 11 year old loves it. Once charged the battery holds power for a long time.
I bought this for my son for Christmas. He loves it! Very cute!
My son LOVES this robot! We downloaded the app on an old phone and he controls it through there.

This robot is awesome. This was presented to a kid and he loved it.
Cool bot if this is what your kids want or you. Did take a while to get the free mobile app to be able to control it from a phone or tablet but once we got the app installed properly worked great..amused kids
This toy is so much fun!! Download the app too! So great. We may get another!
Bought this used, in new condition. The kids have been playing with it for a while and love it. The app is a fun way to use it, but not required.
Gift. Granddaughter was intrigued with coding to make WooWee perform. Teaches logic sequences.
6yo daughter loves this guy. Has lots of features and works with her Kindle Fire tablet.
It's a little advanced for our 5 year old but it works as described.
My 7 year old loves this Robot! It's easy for him to navigate and works great, dances, battles with other MIP robots. Overall love it - only downside is it runs through AAA batteries quickly. Wish there was an option to charge him instead of replacing the batteries.
Ruth M. C.
My nephew loves it. It is a great gift.
My grandson loves this robot. So do his friends
My kid lives this thing! It dances, plays music from my iTunes, takes simple code. Fun toy!
Gave to 13yr grandson for Christmas, whole family had fun with it.
Bought this as a gift for my nephews, do yourself a favor and get a high-end battery charging set. You're going to need them. As to the product itself, very fun! To be honest, my brother and I played with it more than my nephews...
I've gotten 4 of these for gifts for Grandkids! Lots of fun, while learning!
This was a Christmas gift for a 10 yr old Grandson. He told his parents it was the best gift ever. Some downloads allow this robot to do some remarkable things per Grandson. Haven't seen in action yet because we live far away, but the feedback sounds really good.
Syeda Hira Mohsin
A gift and I am sure he's going to love it.
Very cute.. 11 year old niece loves it. Age appropriate for a curious 5th grader
This great little robot won all of our hearts over with his dance moves.
Susan L Wilson
Doesnt do as much as i figured, but very entertaining. I bought it for my 4 yr old grand daughter but i think it is a little complicated for her, but she will learn.Definitely invest in some rechargeable batteries, they need charged nightly.
