We have been asked this question a number of times by people that are interested in buying a Pleo. Search online and you will find numerous forums where people are desperate to buy the new Pleo rather than the old one. Spending money on a Pleo may be difficult to justify but the original is now at the lowest price it will ever be. If you do want to have your own pet dinosaur, now is the time to buy the original

As you may know, UGoBe went bankcrupt in 2008 and the original Pleo was retired. The 2009 Pleo produced by Jetta Ltd has four main differences compared to the original:

a) The Pleo battery has been upgraded so that it now lasts for around 1-1.5 hours for a 3 hour charge. Previously the battery last for around 1 hour for a 5 hour charge.
b) The skin has been remodified so that it doesn't wear as quickly. With the original Pleo in places where there was moderate stroking, the colour may flake slightly. However, this can be prevented with the new Pleo cape which is available via http://www.pleoworld.com.
c) The new Pleo comes with firmware 1.1 as standard. For the old Pleo it is free to upgrade it from the standard 1.0 firmware. You just need a blank sd card and about ten minutes -

d) The new Pleo can only be purchased from http://www.pleoworld.com. They currently retail at $349 (around £289) including tax and postage this will cost around £399.99 in the UK. The original Pleo is £159.99 at Electronic Pet Shop. http://www.electronicpetshop.com/pleo-the-robotic-camarasaurus-dinosaur~p213

In summary; the new Pleo is better but not enough to justify an extra £250. There is talk about a new colour of Pleo becoming available at the end of 2010.
