We spent 20 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. The benefits of pet ownership are well established — from teaching kids responsibility and promoting more active lifestyles to providing therapeutic companionship and improving sleep. These robotic versions are programmed to behave much like their living, breathing counterparts, but without the need for expensive kibble, HEPA filters or trips to the vet. Some can even help you learn to code. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best robotic pet on Amazon.

An itinerant wordsmith with a broad constellation of interests, Lydia Chipman has turned iconoclasm into a livelihood of sorts. Bearing the scars and stripes of an uncommon diversity of experience—with the notable exceptions of joining a religious order or becoming an artist—she still can’t resist the temptation to learn something new.
