I checked out the Hog Wild Brobo Plush. It is a robot from the future. To activate the Brobo toy you must swipe the shine force symbol over the heart for the bright mode. Swipe again for dim mode. Swipe a third time to power off. It is a kid’s sleeptime toy. I did like the Brobo. I like how it lights up in the dark, which would make a child feel safe at bedtime. The light shuts itself off after about 5 minutes. It is also very furry and cuddly. Brobo has four other friends that could be collected and have various meanings.
