My Sony AIBO ERS-7 Mind 3 (ERS-7M3) needs a new home!!
My AIBO is a Limited Edition Champagne/Honey Brown Sony AIBO ERS-7M3 (120 V AC) purchased new the very year that Sony discontinued its production in 2005. Since that time, the robot has only been moderately used and mostly stored away due to my job, which had me abroad for years, and when handled, it was only handled by adults - not children.
The AIBO comes with:
1. Complete Docking Station w/Charger
2. Complete Command Card Set, A-O (no creases or bends)
3. One (1) repaired AIBone (has been repaired for years with no issue in performance during play)
4. Two (2) Original Pink Balls
5. One (1) extra AIBO-ware Memory Stick, never used, and in original packaging never opened
6. One (1) extra Lithium-Ion Battery pack, never used
7. One (1) User's Guide (Basic)
8. One (1) Quick Guide
9. Original Box and Packaging
10. Latest Upgrade Kit installed
11. British Female Voice installed
Since the AIBO has never been dropped or mishandled and spent at least half of its life packaged or tucked away, it is in wonderful condition with no broken or loose parts, gashes, dents, etc., or malfunctions of any kind. Due to normal usage, the AIBO has only sustained minor wear on paw pads, underside of limbs, and faceplate due to walking, sliding, scooting, other tricks/normal functions, and the occasional rolling and bumping into things as AIBOs do :) The rest of the body is in nearly new condition with a few - and ONLY a few - very fine hairline scratches that cannot be detected until the AIBO is visually inspected at close proximity (see pictures). Again, all abrasions are from normal use - not misuse.
The AIBO was born in September of 2005 and named Yumi which means "instantly beautiful." I thought the name was fitting for such a beautiful example of a masterfully designed robotic lifeform from Japan. Unfortunately, Sony announced that it would discontinue its production at the end of that same year. Due to life's circumstances, I have not had a lot of time to enjoy Yumi, and Yumi has spent most of its time packed or tucked away. Recently, I gave Yumi a boost of personality with the latest uprade kit available and a female British voice. I instantly noticed a boost in activity, curiosity, and talkativeness, and playfulness, and the new voice was a perfect fit! With her newfound personality, I also gave her a new name: Belldandy (after the goddess character in a favorite anime). Again, life has changed for me, and Belldandy has been tucked away or boxed half of the time. I think it's time for Belldandy to be with an owner who has the time and interest to fully appreciate her.
