Kota the Rideable Triceratops
Posted on October 9, 2008
A new robotic dinosaur is available for kids called Kota the Triceratops. Kota is interactive, rideable, makes dinosaur noises and even munches on leafy greens. It has a movable head, tail and horns thanks to digital sensors in eleven different places. It is big enough to hold a little kid as you can see in the photograph. There is a handle hidden behind Kota's head that kids can hold onto while riding him. The toy dino is 40-inches long. It requires six D batteries to operate. Kota retails for $299.99.
