According to this article, "Toio is the result of 5 years of research into developing a toy that’s simple enough for kids to use, but also sophisticated enough to create a figurative sandbox where kids can explore the inner-workings of robotics engineering." How simple? It's just a pair of blocks that move on wheels. But "they respond to motion, are able to detect the exact location of the other, and can be programmed but also remote controlled." The visuals in this article make the case. I can imagine how these would be endlessly fascinating.
