Last week while I was away, Pet Society introduced a new Nannybot that is available for purchase in the furniture and gadget shops. It’s a robot that can care for your pet while you are away. Too bad it wasn’t introduced before my trip!
When Nannybot is charged with a battery, she can feed, clean and make sure your pet stays happy when you are both online or offline. The mayor gave everyone a free Nannybot battery as a gift. The battery lasts for three days.
The Nannybot costs 400 coins.
After the free battery runs out, new batteries must be purchased for 5 playfish cash coins if you want your Nannybot to continue running. I’m not planning to purchase a battery with playfish cash, but I wanted to test the Nannybot out with my free battery.
The free battery cannot be gifted, recycled or sold, so you’re stuck with it in your inventory unless you buy a Nannybot to use it up or borrow a Nannybot from a friend. Additionally, if you have a friend with a Nannybot, then you can enjoy her features and get some free food during your visits. The Nannybot only feeds your pet free toast, and does not feed your pet any food items from your inventory.
Here’s a picture of Nannybot cleaning Momo.
Here’s Nannybot tickling Momo with a feather and playing with her to keep her happiness level high.
Here’s Nannybot shooting toast at Momo’s head to feed her (or knock her unconscious) and keep her health level high.
The animations are cute, so I’m going to enjoy them during my three days of having a powered Nannybot. I did notice that having a Nannybot means you will lose coins and pawpoints for feeding, cleaning and playing with your pet. The battery itself is quite costly. Besides, nothing bad ever happens to your pet when you’re gone. While I was in Turkey, I ignored poor Momo entirely, so she was sad, hungry, and covered in flies when I returned. As soon as I logged in, I cleaned her, fed her and played with her, and she was back to normal. (One thing I was sad about was that I thought I might receive multiple lottery envelopes for the days I missed playing, but I just received one lottery.)
What do you all think of the Nannybot? Will you ever use her? Did you test buy one to test her out with the free batter? Do you think the Nannybot is worth it or not?
