MiPosaur Price History

Sam Applegate

3rd September 2015

By Sam Applegate

I like bacon sandwiches.


If all the dinosaurs were as clever as the WowWee MiPosaur toy, they would never have gone extinct! Some kid's toys are very good at doing just one thing; a rare few can do a great deal. The WowWee MiPosaur and its track ball are of the latter group.

King Of The Jungle

The WowWee MiPosaur toy is a surprisingly large toy, about the size of an adult shoe box. Designed in a cutesy-fierce style and mostly made from plastic, it's attractive in a robotic kind of way. As those pokey, useless little arms and sinuous, articulated tail might suggest, it's not necessarily the most robust toy were it to take a long tumble down the stairs, so make sure that the MiPosaur stays in its normal hunting grounds: large, flat areas of carpet or laminate flooring.

Like WowWee's robots before it, the MiPosaur is remarkably good at balancing itself, a feat that's achieved on its two legs (wheels) through a gentle rocking back-and-forth motion.

WowWee have gone to some effort to imbue the MiPosaur with a real sense of personality that comes across through lights and sounds. Pull on his tail and he'll growl unhappily, whilst treat him right and MiPosaur will cry "coochie-coochie-coo!". Spielberg eat your heart out: this thing has stardust scattered all over it.

There's No Place To Hide!

There are three ways to control the MiPosaur - hand gestures, the track ball and the app. The latter two work really well. The track ball (I believe it operates through infra-red, but I could be wrong) allows you to lead the MiPosaur on an invisible leash and is really rather cool. It will follow you relentlessly, but it's not clever enough to avoid hazards, so be careful. You can also put the ball on the ground and play a kind of rudimentary football with it, as Rex tries to close with the ball and you dribble around with it. Other options include a dance, food and toy mode.

The app, which is available both for more recent IoS and Android devices, has load of cool features of its own, too. You can directly control the MiPosaur, laser battle other MiPs (Rex has an advantage here due to his powerful tail and spinning ability) and lay out a path for him to follow, although you'll need a good - sized area.

Not Quite The Lost World

There are two big criticisms that you can throw at this charismatic dino. The first is that its gesture controls are frankly fairly rubbish. The MiPosaur seems to miss hand commands fifty percent of the time, which given the general impatience of the target audience seems a bit of an error.

On the other hand, as I've already said, the other controls are both effective and good fun, so you're not hamstrung by the failure, just a little disappointed. Similarly, the response to clapped commands can be fairly erratic.

The second fault, as such, is the sheer amount of batteries that you need to get it working: four AAs and four AAAs, none of which are included. It might be worthwhile investing in a couple of sets of rechargeable unless you want your children raiding the TV remote for extra juice!

Then again, given the sheer flexibility and fun offered by the WowWee MiPosaur and its track ball, perhaps grouching about its voracious appetite for power is rather besides the point.

Bear in mind that the MiPosaur is really an indoor toy, used best on smooth surfaces and ideally kept away from real jungle terrain. If Grandma and Granddad are a fan of long, shaggy-haired carpets then it's possible that little T-Rex is going to struggle to perform on your Boxing day visit. Just a word of warning!

The long and the short of it is that the WowWee MiPosaur and its track ball have an awful lot of personality and functionality, with app and software upgrades offering the possibility of more options in the future. It really does go a long way to being a kind of virtual pet, roaring, lighting up and charging around whilst there's plenty more that I've barely talked about for you to discover!
