Sneak has added the first item to his Christmas list. Well, technically it is his third, but he only puts "Satsuma + walnuts" to make his mum feel better.
The lucky item to hit the number 3 spot on the list is a £200 robot called Spyke, which promises to help him round the house, with a range of functions that can be performed by cheap - £200, foot high robots, what you make yourself.
Sneak is very excited about the item, since with a simple tray attached to its head, and a hoover to its bum it can make a very helpful food transportation unit that manages to clean up after itself – something that Sneak has never managed to do.
The robot is made by Meccano, but unfortunately for Sneak, is called the Erector set, and thus is likely to confuse his mum at the till point.
One thing is for sure. Permissive she may be, but Sneak's mum will never go into a shop and ask for an erector for her son. It's just not right.
