He moves, he speaks and he shoots. Except he can’t shoot while he moves because as soon as K9 extends his nose blaster his wheels stop working.
Although this is bit of a niggle it’s presumably deliberate and will save countless upsets as the restriction means it’s not possible to break the blaster off as K9 – true to form – ignores your finely considered instructions and moves off in a direction of his own choosing.
K9 moves well on carpet but is far speedier on a flat surface such as floor tiles. The speech is confined to a few phrases from series two’s ‘School Reunion’ but is audible and clear even from across a large room.
A word of warning, a tiny phillips screwdriver is needed to get K9 out of his box because he’s screwed to the base of it so be sure you have the correct sized driver ahead of any Christmas morning unwrappings.
Battery-wise the actual K9 needs 4 standard AA’s with the control unit needed a PP3. A set of AA’s is included in the toy for shop demonstration purposes but going by our unit these will not be strong enough to power the unit.
