Senario: Pleo is Alive and Well

Posted 30 Jun 2009 at 16:02 UTC by steve Share This

We reported in April that the creator of the Pleo robot dinosaur, Ugobe, Inc., filed chapter 7 bankruptcy, leaving the future of the Pleo in doubt. Then we got some good news in June when Jetta, the Chinese company who manufactured the Pleo robots for Ugobe, announced they had bought the rights to the robot and would continue building them. This left only the question of immediate availability. Would Pleos continue to be sold in the US? Megan Lawler writes:

You will be happy to know that our beloved Pleo has been and still is very much available here in the U.S. thanks to consumer electronics and entertainment leader, Senario. We are currently servicing the market with our inventory. We do buy various products from Jetta and of course they manufactured our current inventory. Should Senario continue with new manufactured product, Jetta will indeed be the manufacturer.

Megan goes on to say that you can buy a Pleo today at [$299], [$349], [not in online catalog], and, of course [$157]. The Amazon price looks pretty good but their prices fluctuate frequently so your mileage may vary.
