Sega Toys - Cat robot for those not allowed to have pets at home

Sega Toys recently released a white cat robot, Yume Neko Celeb, for 11,000 yen.

It is made for those who wants to have a pet but their apartment/condo rules don't allow them to enjoy a life with a pet. The cat robot snuggles, purrs and meows like an actual cat.

Sega Toys also released a yellow chick robot, Yume Hiyoko, on the same day. It moves like an actual chick by moving its wings and saying peep-peep.
