Last year there was Wappy Dog. This little mechanical doggie connected into a Nintendo DS game. Little mini games could be played on the Nintendo DS, and there was also interactivity with the robot dog. This year there is Techpet. This is sort of the iPhone/iPod Touch version of Wappy Dog.

Techpet is different in one major way though. The iPhone/iPod Touch becomes the face of the dog. So the dogs face can be interacted with while it is on the face of the robot dog body. Families can play the app connected to the robot dog body, or they can play the app by itself.

The app for Techpet is a free download. The robot dog's body is where the cost comes into play. There are a few mini games that can be played, and level ups that can be achieved. Nothing to write home about in terms of the mini games. Techpet excels in personality and interactivity with other units.

We went to the instructions multiple times with Techpet. There is little on this little unit that is easily understandable. It took reading the instructions to find out how to get into the battery casing. Also how to make the robot dog actually move, and how to get into the mini games.

With all of that stated once we learned how to play with Techpet we found some fleeting fun. I can see Techpet being a novelty item that some families will invest in. Once they learn how to use it, they should have an enjoyable time. Techpet is recommended for those twelve years and older - the robot dog. The app was given a 4+ rating. Please keep that in mind.

I ran into real problems getting the Techpet to walk around.
