Looking for Christmas ideas for my neice I found this on Shiny Shiny. This is the Sakura robot, it’s pink and seems to get around on a customised Segway. Apparently, she knows a few jokes, can give you “fun facts and fashion tips” and play back five different songs. Additionally, her board can be remotely controlled, and if you two build up a certain level of trust, you can record “secrets” within that will only be repeated should you insert the requisite key. All this for Â£49.99 on Amazon – I think it’s made the short-list!
