Miposaur Robotic Dinosaur Toy

Dinosaur meets robotics meets dinosaur. That's what the self-balancing MiPosaur Robotic Dinosaur Toy by WowWee is all about.

Dino toys have been increasing in popularity since the release of Jurassic World and this little feller is a great deal of fun.

A highly advanced toy robotic dinosaur with cutting edge technology, it looks good in sleek black with blue glowing eyes. It has the moves and the sounds you would expect from such a high tech toy.

Kids will love this WowWee roboraptor, even those who may be getting a bit older to be playing with toys.

​There are three ways to control your Dino toy. You control him with your hand gestures, an App or his Track Ball

But..... the first thing you need to know is that Miposaur has three basic moods which directly affect how it’ll react to any commands you give, either by hand, with the app, or using the trackball.

It could be curious or excited, or annoyed. You can tell which mood it’s in. A light glows at the back of it's head - orange means it’s excited, blue that it’s curious and red that it’s annoyed. The sounds it makes reflect the mood it's in as well.

Miposaur Hand Commands

Miposaur uses GestureSense Technology. This makes it possible to control your Dino buddy with hand gestures.

He'll respond to a clap or a swipe of your hand. You can gesture him to move from side to side, spin, sit forward, go back, and so on, using ten different hand commands which are called:

  • Spin left or right
  • Spin clockwise
  • Spin counter-clockwise
  • Back hold
  • Front hold
  • Dual hold
  • Tail pull
  • Push forward
  • Clap x 2
  • Clap x 3

Another way to control your Miposaur is by using the special app.

Miposaur App

This is a free App you can download to your Apple or Android device that controls your Mipo another way.

The App is loaded with different games that provide a variety of game-play to add to the fun. You can drive MiPosaur around, play, trace a path on the device screen for it to follow, and to interact with other toys like the WowWee MiP robot.

Game Modes on the App are:

  • Drive Mode - this gives remote control of your Dino from the App.
  • Feed Mode - let's you feed Miposaur and see how its mood changes.
  • Battle Mode - prepare to battle with another Miposaur or a MiP robot.
  • Path Mode - touch screen and drag gives more remote control from your app.
  • Dance Mode - more mood reaction to food.

And coming soon there'll be a Storybook Mode and MiPohunt Mode.

You control Miposaur with your smart device just as you would an RC car​

Miposaur Trackball

Personally, I think this is the most fun way to interact with your pet Dino. To activate the trackball just flick a switch.

The TrackBall uses something called BeaconSense Technology. This enables MiPosaur to track the ball in real time, follow it around and to perform tricks.

Trackball activates six different game modes:

Game Modes on the Trackball are:

  • Food Mode - give it some tasty food treats.
  • Dance Mode - shake the trackball to watch Miposaur's dance moves.
  • Beat Box Mode - It'll start to beat box when it gets close to the trackball.
  • Leash Mode - use the ball as a leash to guide the Dino around.
  • Ball Mode - Mipo will chase the ball and push it around.
  • Teddy Bear Mode - make the trackball become Mipo's favorite new toy.
