CES 2017. Meet Kuri. (I'll leave you to decide if this allegedly 'adorable' robot is worth $700)

You'll have to wait til the end of the year if you're smitten.

Kuri is a robot nanny that charms the kids and watches your place.  (c|net, 1/3/2017)
Supposedly, Kuri can also recognize faces and context and adapt its responses accordingly. Those responses include chirps and nods, since Kuri doesn't talk, though it will play podcast, music and tell stories. It also has LEDs built into its chest that can change colors.
