Description

SAMbuddy has a soft fur and is about half a meter tall. Inside is a small computer. By pressing buttons, children can 'talk' with the cuddly robot. SAMbuddy is designed for children who want to vent or need a buddy. For example, children with autism: they have difficulty talking with other people and easier with a social robot.
