Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story takes a little child’s fascination with a wonderful new thing, and transfers it into a robot, and the overall effect is adorable.

Con: Almost nothing happens in this story, even considering how short it is.

It’s not clear why anyone would want to build a robot that needed this kind of training.
