Is it any good?


The fun of BEBOT is that it works on two levels. As a synthesizer it's a decent collection of sci-fi sounds, from a wobbly Theremin to robotic beeps and bloops, with the ability to customize and tweak each sound and save your own creations. Younger kids, though, will be perfectly happy just making funny noises and watching them come out of the animated robot's mouth.
