It's always strange what kids will find fun when they show up at a new place. My friend's son, he was maybe 3 when this started, somehow discovered the magical fun of my Roomba. It had a remote, which I never used, but he seemed to enjoy to no end. I didn't mind, the cat new to get out of the way, and in the end my house was maybe a little cleaner.
When I was offered the Iron Man Robot, I though of him and figured it would be a wonderful toy to add to the limited entertainment options I have for kids at my house.
Iron Man was a big hit....for the first visit. It wasn't long, however, before he realized Iron Man was not nearly as mobile as Roomba. Poor Iron Man. The new game soon became ROBOT BATTLE!!! And is shouldn't be too hard to guess who the winner always was. I'll give you a hint, it was always either Mommy or Me that controlled Iron Man, and he was never able to outrun Roomba. Crash! Boom! Down goes Iron Man. ROOMBA! The undefeated heavyweight champion!
