Zibits (pronounced, it seems, like “ribbits”) are tiny IR controlled robots that do two things: they move forward and spin. With these building blocks of locomotion you can do fascinating things like move forward and spin, spin and move forward, or just move forward or just spin. The possibilities, obviously, are endless.
These guys cost $10 and are available in March. And yes, they are very cute and fun for kids – at least for a fleeting while. My son loved his for about ten minutes and now he sits forlornly on the dining room table like Wheezy in Toy Story 2.
I found a hilarious commercial after the jump.
