Disco Robo Review (Tosy)

What It Is

Disco Robo is a toy robot from Tosy that dances to the beat of your music. Turn on Disco Robo by pressing the button on its belly. Disco Robo's fingers and face will light up indicating Disco is ready to dance. As Disco dances, it features 56 different moves and eight changing facial expressions.

Start playing your music near Disco Robo and Disco Robo will dance to the beat of the music. You can also place Disco Robo on the included head spinner to make it dance like a real hip-hop dancer.

Take your engagement with Disco Robo one step further by downloading the free DISCOROBO app from Google Play or the Apple or Windows Store. Follow the instructions on the screen to sync Disco Robo to the app. The app allows you to customize Disco Robo's dance moves by swipping left, right, up and down on your screen. You can also record a dance sequence by pressing the record button and swipping moves on the screen. Then press the play button to have Disco Robo dance out the sequence and repeat it as many times as you wish.

Is It Fun?

For kids who love to dance, this is a fun and easy toy to engage with. We like that it really is as simple as pressing a button to make Disco Robo start dancing and that the free app takes the engagement to the next level for older kids. The head spinner is a particularly fun feature that will have kids dancing along. Just make sure they don't start doing head spins!

Who It’s For

Disco Robo is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

We suggest using a stereo or speaker in order for Disco Robo to feel the beat and interact. We originally tried interacting with the robot through a phone's speaker but it didn't register as well. We also suggest sticking with songs that have a strong beat or a lot of bass to really get Disco Robo dancing.

The app also allows to save recorded dance sequences or control Disco by shaking the phone near the robot.

Eight AA batteries are required and you'll need a small screw driver to install them. They are not included.

Disco Robo is available in four colors: blue, red, purple, and pink. A DiscoStage is also available as an accessory and sold separately.
