Omnibot 2000 is the perfect household butler and does what he is asked.

He’ll greet your guests with a joke, pour drinks and serve snacks. Later he’ll return as a DJ to play the top 40 hits.

Operated by remote control, he has many features including a cassette tape player, microphone hook up and a clock and alarm system. The original owners gave this model a tartan hat and kilt to wear and a sporran to hold his remote control, made by Tomy 1984 - 1988.
