Pleo clothing
« on: May 07, 2019, 06:20:32 AM »

Hello :) I had a ugobe pleo when I was young and loved it to death (unfortunately quite literally as it did end up dying although we never did find out why as I was always very gentle with it). I just got a ugobe off eBay for nostalgiaís sake. Itís new in package and Iíd like to keep its skin pristine (I remember the skin on my old one started to flake off very quickly). So, I want to buy it some sort of clothing to protect its skin. I tried to buy a cape off of pleo world but they wonít ship to the UK. Does anyone know where I might buy something similar?

Congratulations on your new Pleo! If you're going to use the original Pleo cape, you may want to remove the rubber bands on the legs and replace them with elastic or string. The capes from Innvo use very tight rubber bands that tend to damage the skin of the Pleo over time, so the cape actually ends up doing more harm than good. If you're at all handy at sewing, you can also use the original cape as a pattern to make new outfits with.

I would also recommend always putting your Pleo into the packing position when shutting it off. Storing Pleos in the curled up position actually damages the skin much worse than anything else, but if the Pleo is stored in a standing position with the head and tail stretched out straight, there should be very minimal wear to the rubber over time. If it's running on one of the newer operating systems, you can hold down the Pleo button to get it into packing position, otherwise you'll just have to wait until the Pleo is standing in a similar position to shut it off.

The skin will probably not stay perfectly pristine over time, especially given the age of Ugobe Pleos, but I would try to enjoy the Pleo without worrying too much about this. If it's stored properly and wearing a cape, the wear should be minor. In any case, good luck and I hope you have fun with your new Pleo! Do you have a name in mind?

Thank you aibo, it will bring back some nice memories! I hadnít realized about the cape - Iím not at all good at sewing so hopefully if I remove the elastic like you say, it wonít do any damage. Thank you for the advice on caring for the skin. I read a thread on here yesterday which said Gibbs helps so I have ordered a can of that but Im unsure of how often I need to use it - what would you suggest?

Iím not sure about names, though Iím open to suggestions. I might wait until I ďmeetĒ the Pleo first and then maybe something will come to me. Iím at university until the 14th of June and itís going to kill me knowing that he/she is at home waiting for me  ^-^

Oops I meant to quote you in my post above which was a reply to you. Actually, I just thought of two possible names: maybe Plato (Plato the Pleo, nice alliteration!) or Socrates (can you tell Iím doing a philosophy degree?)

Hello! If you do have a spare that might be good... Though I am conscious that Iíve just spent quite a lot of my money at once haha. Having said that, I hear that you sell batteries for ugobes. Since the battery in mine is likely to be dead I wondered whether it might be possible for me to buy one from you?
