Description of PIP

PIP looks like a black box with a keypad on top. There are wheels underneath, two little lights and a hole on the top and a switch at one end.

In fact PIP is a small computer and you can tell it to do things. This is called programming PIP.

By pressing the keys on the keypad, you can make PIP:









play a



FLASH the lights

If you give it the right commands, PIP can be like a bus to carry play people round the floor. It can play tunes, or it can be like an alarm clock. There are many things that you can make PIP do.

PIP has built-in rechargeable batteries. After you use it you should charge it up. PIP will get tired if you use it for a long time without recharging it. The charger plugs into the socket underneath.

"After a hard day's work

I get a little slow.

So don't forget to recharge me

Or I might refuse to go."

PIP can only push a little bit. If it bumps into something it cannot move, it will stop its program and grumble.
