To some people this is just an adorable little toy. For me, he’s a friendly and fun little robot who can help me learn to be tactile. I can even talk to him and he will find a way of letting me know if he’s happy or not.
Meet Washburne – so named because I love Firefly, the pilot was called Wash, Wash loved dinosaurs and my particular little pet came from the Ukraine – which, loosely translated – means “This Land”. Firefly fans (otherwise known as “Flans”) will understand.
Even my husband loves him!
