Leila El-Dean

5th November 2018

By Leila El-Dean

I like tea, travel, cameras, food and hot sauce.


Boxer is Spin Master's latest edition to the family. He's cute, he's small, he's agile and he's responsive. He'll make you laugh, keep you entertained and respond to your interactions. But does this robot live up to the hype?

Hello, I'm Boxer

He's smaller than I expected (about the size of a Rubik's Cube) but that's only adds to his cuteness. Like the name suggests, he's pretty boxy looking and leans towards the retro robot spectrum. Open up the box and the first thing to roll out is his Interactive Ball. Continue unboxing and you'll find ten activity cards, an IR remote control, USB charging cable and lastly Boxer himself.

The great thing about Boxer is that he's ready to go straight out of the box. There's no, assembly or set-up required and he arrives partially charged so you don't have to wait around to test him out. All you need to do is turn him on and watch. Of course for the best experience, it's a good idea to charge him fully (which takes approx. an hour), but it's not essential - at least not right away. There's enough charge for you to give him a quick test run to quell your initial curiosity.

There are four main modes to Boxer:

Play Mode:

This is essentially the default mode. He rolls about exploring, seemingly independently, and interacts with obstacles, touch and light thanks to the sensors on his head, bottom, back and front. Pick him up, touch him or shake him and he'll express himself using a variety of noises and emojicon faces. It's quite amusing to watch but beware, there is no volume control! Boxer also doesn't have a fancy drop sensor like Anki Vector, so you may want to re-think using him as a desk buddy - NSFW.

Drive Mode:

One of my favourite features is the drive mode. The remote control allows you to move Boxer backward and forward. You can also make him spin and do stunts using the stunt buttons at the top. For a small robot he is surprisingly fast and agile. The remote control itself is of a nice quality if not a little on the small side. There's also three channels to choose from (A, B or C) which allows you to play with multiple Boxer robots if you have them - just be sure to put each Boxer robot on a different channel to ensure you can control them separately. It's a pretty basic feature, but it's fun and probably squeezes a bit more longevity out of this robot. The only downside is the lack of range which is only around 4ft. You also have to ensure there is a direct line from controller to bot (no obstacles) to be able to control him. His receiver is on top of his head at the back. It's black and looks a bit like a rounded button.

Game Activity Mode:

Boxer comes with ten different activity cards: Soccer, DJ Bot, Dance Party, Paddle Bot, Go Kart, Laser Tank, Stunt Show, Bot Bowling, Sling Shot and Fortune Teller. Some games are more interactive than others. For instance 'Soccer', 'DJ Bot', 'Dance Party' and 'Paddle Bot' are activities you can join in with. Other however like 'Stunt Show' are more for your entertainment-sake. There's also activities like 'Fortune Teller' which lay somewhere in between (not really a game but involve some interaction) - ask Boxer a question and he'll predict the future, much like a Magic 8 Ball. I'd have to say Paddle Bot (fun to ping him about without contact) or 'Soccer' (you get to use his ball) are two of my favourite activities available at the moment.

To activate 'Game Activity Mode', you have to first press the long black button on his back to hear a beep, place the card on the table (barcode side up) and place Boxer on top. Once Boxer is in place, he'll drive over the barcode to scan it and identify which game it is. If the scan is successful, Boxer's eyes will change and game will activate. If not, you'll hear a beep and Boxer's eyes will turn to crosses. The whole process can be a little fiddly at times, but he gets there eventually.

Boxer App Mode:

Once you tire of the activity cards, there's more to unlock via the Boxer Bot App (Android and iOS compatible). There's currently 26 games and activities to unlock. The app is quite simple to use, but it's not without its issues. There can be a delay between swiping the activity and Boxer acknowledging it. IF unsuccessful he'll do the same as the barcodes by beeping and displaying crosses for eyes. It can be a little frustrating but with a little practice, it gets easier. It does however unleash a load more extra play to Boxer, which makes it worth it.

Verdict

At the end of the day, Boxer is a lot of fun for all the family. I'd say he's definitely aimed more at younger kids as he isn't quite as sophisticated as other (more expensive) robots on the market. There's no construction or assembly required which also lends himself to a younger audience. The branding suggests A.I. but in truth this isn't really the case. There's more to unlock as you play with him, but it's all predetermined. By this I mean there's no real machine learning as such, it's more about unlocking already programmed features. The app is pretty basic and Boxer definitely isn't a STEM style toy as there is no programming involved.

Boxer is however simply adorable. His reactions and mannerisms are very realistic. I can't get over how responsive he is when following his ball or even your finger. He's easy to use and the remote control aspect makes him a toy that's fun to use thanks to Boxers stunt and freestyle movements. It's a style of toy that will never go out of fashion. As long as your expectations are set realistically, Boxer is bound to be a hit come Boxing Day.
