YOUR NAME: Jason Parry
YOUR CHARACTER’S NAME: Roboto (a.k.a Mr. Roboto)
CHARACTER TRAITS: He means well and he loves playtime, but he tends to have paranoid and neurotic tendencies.
If you could have one thing for Christmas it would be… an A/C Adapter! No more dead batteries for this robot!
Favorite holiday activity? Roleplaying “Optimus Prime” and playing “Transformers” with Jacob in his very own snow fort!
Favorite toy? You can keep your Barbie, Mattel. Princess Sophia is the ONLY doll for me! (Psst… call me!)
Favorite holiday scent? I do not contain olfactory organs, but if I did, I’m sure that I’d love that fresh, new battery scent!
Favorite holiday song? “The Island of Misfit Toys” from the Yuletide classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
If you had to describe the production of The Christmas Elf in one word, that word would be…
Can you tell us a little about your character?
Roboto (a.k.a. Mr. Roboto) is the toy that keeps going and going and going….until his batteries run out, that is! Though he enjoys playtime with Jacob, there’s a constant, nagging paranoia at the back of his mind reminding him that his Energizers could fizzle out at any second! Consequently, this causes him to appear high strung and neurotic.
What was your favorite childhood toy?
I love toys, even as an adult, so it’s hard to pick just one! Video games were a huge part of my childhood and I’d say the Super Nintendo was one of those consoles that provided me with HOURS of pure, unadulterated joy!
What was one of the best gifts you received during the holidays?
Those would be the gifts that I’m thankful to receive every year: my good health and the time I get to spend catching up and enjoying life with my family and friends.
Favorite line your character says?
“Danger, Will Robinson, Danger.”
