Zibits Mini Toy Robot Review & Giveaway

The winner of the Zibits Giveaway is comment #23!
I mentioned to my 11 year old son that I had been asked to review a new pocket size remote control, or Z-mote as they call it, robot on the market; I should have thought that out better because he bugged me everyday asking “Is it here yet?” until the package arrived in the mail. We opened the package to find a pocket size Zibits robot with its very own Z-mote named “Gunk”. In my own words I said “Look at this cute lil guy!” but my son said “Mommmm! Cute? He’s not cute, he’s cool, wicked cool.” Sheesh, boys! My daughters thought he was cute.

Meet Zibits Gunk – Gunk specialises in breaking down things in the junkyard. He is all heart but no brains who is just happy to break down junk.

My son had Zibits Gunk zipping around our dining table in no time flat using the Z-mote that came along with it. The Z-mote had one control for ease of use that can move the mini robot forward, backward or in circles with sound effects and light up eyes. I wasn’t very good at getting Gunk to go the direction I wanted but my son seemed to know what he was doing. Gunk has tiny little wheels on the bottom which help it move best on flat surfaces. These little robots are the perfect size to take along in a pocket or a backpack, take one or the whole collection. These would be an excellent size of toy to take along any place where packing light is essential like on a vacation, daycare or a sleep over.

Each Zibits mini robot has its own identity, just like Gunk’s character. My son liked Zibits Gunk so much he wants to collect all 12 of these adorable characters. Even my daughters liked Gunk and want their very own Zibits robot. With Christmas right around the corner, these Zibits robots would be excellent stocking stuffers and at under $20, you can’t go wrong. I guess this means I better get my order in before these little guys fly off the shelf and they’re out of stock because I expect them to be a hot toy of the season!
