Zoomer by Spin Master is probably the families favorite toy on the list and our daughter is just in love with it. She loves teaching him his tricks and her brothers get in on the fun as well as they all play with Zoomer. The toy will not have problems with carpets, as Zoomer makes short work of them. This was one of our stand out toys from Toy Fair and he lives up to the expectations in person. Zoomer is a quality product that does a great job at acting the part of a real dog without the issue of having to clean up after him. The way that Zoomer moves is quick fluid and feels like it is a toy that come from the future in how well it works. Zoomer has a bunch of different commands and you can even load an app on our IOS device to help you with giving the commands so that when you work with Zoomer directly you have a better understanding on how to interact with him.
