Riley is awesome
Riley was easy to set up snd activate. It works great. The camera is crisp and clear. Everything works well. The battery life isn't great but most of the time it remains in the cradle. Well made and very nicely designed.

Cue the engagement!
The new Cue Robot successfully engaged all the humans in our household from ages 5-pushing 40! Although the recommended user age is 11+ our 8 yr old kiddo was able to complete the set-up process with ease. The user interface is intuitive, simple to follow & set-up took approx 10 minutes to complete. Feedback from the little people: it's fun, the chat function is super cool, the different voices are entertaining & it makes them want to learn more about coding. Feedback from the parental units: caught the kids attention immediately, fosters a curiosity for coding at an early age, provides hands-on learning that is play-based & builds a foundation of basic coding skills.
Great concept - horrible customer service
Great concept I wish I could enjoy it more. But had problems with unit setups and app connectivity, probably defective. Contacted manufacture for troubleshooting and they where helpful at all and they stop communicating after our 3rd email. They don't answer the phone or return calls either. I send them.emails, voice mails and videos, but never got a solution. After a week trying to figured oyt the problem and trying to talk to manufacture without luck, I return it.

Left circles all over window then fell off and broke
I REALLY wanted to love this window cleaner. I am a big fan of robot cleaning products- I have 2 robot vacuums, 2 robot mops and a robot gutter cleaner... I am a sucker for anything that can do my cleaning for me. I tried it out on 3 windows yesterday and they looked good, until the sun hit them and I saw they were completely covered in circles. I followed the directions and cleaned dry first, then put cleaner on the pads the second round. I tried again today and, when it got to the top of the first window, it fell off of the window and broke at the charger connection. Great product idea, if only it worked...
Very easy to use and the directions were very clear
Very easy to use and the directions were very clear. Love the design and very light. It comes with a remote and a extra cloth. Definitely recommend this.

Great grill grate cleaner.
Gave cleaner as a gift, but got to examine item, the cleaner seems to be well built. Has a very solid build and feel to it. It has plenty of power to get the job done, be careful when opening grill or unit might exit opening if in the right/wrong place.

Funn little clock not too loud so if the heavy sleeper cant hear it not going to matter that it runs around the room. Worked great for the kid in our house.
I love the idea
It was a gift for my friend. I love the idea. Lol
What a great design
What a great design. I think that this alarm clock is very creative and inventive. I set it on the floor away from the bed and when the alarm goes off, the fun begins. It wakes up the whole family. We keep it running until everyone is out of bed. Last one up turns it off. My dog loves it too. He wakes up ready to play which fills the room with fun in the morning instead of the normal grumpy mood I use to have.

Excellent video camera. They still have some bugs in the software but overall it works fine.
