The newest robotic pal from Mattel, Fijits are soft plastic aliens with a passion for dancing. Using beat detection technology, the dolls perform different movements for different tempos and come with four songs of their own. Haven’t danced with your doll in a while? It’ll remind you that it’s bored. Set to hit store shelves this fall, Fijits are essentially a plastic desk toy with Flubber’s personality. Though the personality chips vary among the four different colors (purple, blue, pink and green) each will chat with its owner and is programmed to understand more than 30 verbal commands, responding to comments based on keywords and answering with one of 150 built-in phrases or jokes.
