Next best thing to a pet

Posted by rom on December 17, 2005

If you are like me who faces an impossible feat of getting a pet dog (the wife just don’t want one… yet), the next best thing is getting a robotic pet or robopet.

I saw this at the local pet toy store and retails for a little less than PhP5,000. Close to the US price. If you check the box, however, it says “Warranty void if bought outside the US and Canada” or something like that. Weird, huh? I asked the folks at the toy store and was told that there is a 7-day warranty. 7 DAYS? ONLY? Forget it!

Yesterday, I went to another toy store and was told that it comes with lifetime service warranty. Parts, however, no included. Hmmm… better response than the first one. 🙂

I am wondering – the roboraptor might even be a better buy! Just a problem, though, what happens on Boxing day when the novelty wears out. hehehe. I am better off waiting for Steve Jobs to do his “one more thing” stint in 3 weeks. 😀
