SPYKEE MINI VOX is the latest self-build robot from Meccano. The small warrior robot has an expressive face like its bigger brother and is voice activated, responding to eight different voice orders including movement, dance and attack.

On sale from February, Mini Vox is constructed from 20 pieces with both instructions and tools included. Suitable for ages sevenplus, it is priced at around £49.99.

The robot has several inbuilt sound and light effects, enabling it to move, attack and dance while playing music. It stands 16.8cm high and carries many of the same stylistic design features as Spykee Vox to create a warrior-like look that differentiates it from the other members of the Spykee family.

Sue Barratt, country manager for Meccano UK, says: “The Spykee family is going from strength to strength. With demand coming from a wide audience, we are continuing to offer the mini Spykees as easy-to-build little brothers that have some key functions to offer good play value to our younger consumers.”

There is on-going trade and consumer PR support, a dedicated Spykee helpline to deal with consumer enquiries, and online support in place for 2009.

Further robots are due out this year to form a Spykee family of eight by the end of 2009.
