Joining the likes of dogs and dueling robots in Takara-Tomy's Omnibot line is a fun new robot by the name of OHaNAS.

This rotund robot takes the form of a stylized sheep and serves as an intelligent companion to carry on a conversation with. Unlike many other robots, this one does not have many articulated parts. Instead, OHaNAS includes other impressive features. The sheep-shaped robot requires a Wi-Fi connection and Bluetooth connectivity, so that it can pair with a smartphone to provide weather updates and seasonal greetings. Since the toy can be connected to the Internet, this sheep bot can go online to source answers for questions.

As well as being a source of information, the robot has its own emotions, which it communicates through lights and sound.
