A rabbit in your life?

Today, I stumbled over Nabaztag, a so-called smart companion (no jokes here because my wife would deliberately misinterpret it). It's been on the market for a while now and is a WLAN-connected rabbit that can alert you of emails/news/events, read you the weather forecast, play music, and much more. The system can even be extended with RFID tags and it has its set of APIs to write custom applications.

On first sight, it looks more like a "nice" gadget and programming toy than really useful.
Is anybody (or your kids) already using this rabbit? I am asking because my oldest son is asking for a rabbit because other kids in the neighborhood recently got a pet...
