Power-Man

Remote controlled, he’ll move forwards, backwards, left and right, and even shoots foam discs.

Power-man loves to dance and play music, and will also ask kids funny questions as they play with him. When they talk back to him he can record their voice and play it back to them.

That doesn’t mean Power-Man doesn’t have a serious side, though – he’s also got plenty of great educational content hidden away inside his memory bank. He’ll happily quiz kids to improve their general knowledge and present them with brain challenges about numbers in everyday life!
