When Ugobe folded, Pleosaurus electronicus became an endangered species. If Pleo goes, which fake pet will steal his hypoallergenic throne?

Paro Therapeutic Robot

Paro is a baby harp seal even a Canadian wouldn’t club — mostly because it’s too expensive. Under its furry coat lies a bevy of sophisticated sensors that make other animal bots look like mechanical bulls with toupees. This pup won’t fetch or chew up your shoes, but it’s the closest you’ll get to the real thing and just as “Aww”-inspiring.

$6,000, Paro
