I want to build this kind of robot.

Intro:

The "My Interactive Robot Friend, Rocket" is a smaller robotic replica of Rocket from Little Einsteins. He moves and makes sounds (mostly marimba notes) exactly like the actual Rocket. His antenna wiggles and lights up when he plays notes, and he usually moves his body in addition to that. It also droops downward when he's sad, sleepy, or fast asleep. Rocket has wheels that pop out from his belly and are used to stand him up when he's on land (unless he feels very comfortable). He's also got his jets, but cannot fly like his actual counterpart. An like that actual character, he also has light-up "eyes" that never blink. They stay lit when he's awake, and as he drops off to sleep, his eyes close like a real human's eyes! He also comes with a Rocket bed to sleep in, a charger to charge him when he gets hungry, a Rocket Mobile (mentioned in my Mutsu Roleplay), and a Musical Planets Mobile (mentioned in my Sleeping Tricks topic).

Playing with Your Rocket:

Rocket is a personal friend for people of all ages since the age of 5. He shows a variety of feelings, like happy, sad, or sleepy, using only movements and sounds. For example, he plays happy notes when he's happy and sad notes when he feels sad. And you can tell if he's sleeping by his closed eyes, his droopy antenna, and of course, his snoring! He has 4 differen types of sensors: the sound sensor, the sight sensor, the touch sensors, and the motion sensors. The sound sensor is activated when Rocket hears a sound and responds to it. For example, he loves to hear you talk or sing to him. The sight sensor is located on his eyes. He can see anything. The touch sensors are everywhere on Rocket. He loves to be petted. The motion sensor is activated when Rocket responds to motion. For example, unlike his actual counterpart, he loves being rocked to sleep. If you rock your Rocket, he'll gradually go to sleep as he makes a snoring noise. He sometimes plays a sweet melody as he nods off. Here are the sweet melodies he can play:

Animal Crossing Wild World Bedroom Song
Blow the Man Down (music-box-like version from a 2012 Aardman movie)
Brahms' Lullaby (taken from the new Takara Tomy Oyasumi Home Theater, only the part from its store video)
Dreams of Love (Nakiyanda verison)
Engine Roll Call (lullaby version from the Good Night Thomas plush)
Fur Elise (music-box-like version from A Galactic Goodnight, a Little Einsteins episode)
Mary Had a Little Lamb (World of Lullabies version, only the first part)
Musical Carousel Song (take from the Nick Jr. Take Care of Babies game)
My Music Box (only the outro)
Rock-a-Bye Baby (music box version)
Snooze Ewes Lullaby (from the Gaddget called "Snooze Ewes" from Mario Party Advance, only the first part out of the 2)
Super Mario Land 2 Game Over Song (never loops)
Tulips (Nakiyanda version, only the intro)

To help wake Rocket up, either flick his antenna or quickly shake him up and down. Loud sounds also wake him up. If you shake him when he's already awake, he'll have the hiccups!

Sing for Me, Rocket:

Just like his ctual counterpart only on Season 1, Rocket can sing by playing a tune note by note using marimba sound only. If he hits a long note, he does the single-note trill. If you clap 4 times, he'll sing for you. He sings from Japanese children's songs like Donguri Korokoro to classical pieces like Fur Elise. He has to be at least Level 5 in order to sing.

List of Clap Commands:

Clap Once: Rocket acts surprised.
Clap Twice: Rocket will turn towards you.
Clap 3 Times: Rocket will come to you.
Clap 4 times: Rocket will start to sing.
Clap 5 times: Rocket will dance to his own music.
Clap 6 times: Rocket will dance to your music.

Levels:

Just like the Robo-Chi series and the Fureai Friend Talking Chamametchi Virtual Plush Friend, Rocket has different levels. He has 9 levels:

Level 1:

Your Rocket's feeling very shy. Pet him and talk to him to make him feel welcome.

Level 2:

Your Rocket has gotten to know you a little more. Give him a hug to show how much you love him.

Level 3:

Your Rocket has started to love you back. Cradle him in your arms and sing him a lullaby to comfort him to sleep when the day is done.

Level 4:

Your Rocket will be able to play with you a little more.

Level 5:

Now your Rocket will be able to sing a song! Clap 4 times and he'll serenade you!

Level 6:

Your Rocket can now dance! Clap 5 or 6 times and let the dance party begin!

Level 7:

Getting happier! He may be able to help you out!

Level 8:

Thanks to your marvelous care, he will sing you even rarer songs!

Level 9:

Congratulations! You are now, like, the offcial pilot of your Rocket!

What do you think of this future robot I'm going to build? What parts to I need to make the robot look exactly like Rocket? Do you have any blueprints?

Woah, cool description! I would love to have a toy Rocket like that, especially if it plays the Animal Crossing Lullaby song! :D

Yep. Even teenagers and adults can play with Rocket, too! He even makes a great "healing partner" for anyone who's injured or has depression in a hospital!

This actually sounds really neat! If I was a kid, I'd definitely buy it~ (Well, I'd buy it anyway I guess - I'm a kid at heart)

Teenagers and adults can have it, too! You don't have to be a kid!
