well, thats a rather vague question. What type of sensors would you want to install on your Robbie?

I would like some movement sensors so I can interact with my robby the robbot and so that he can follow me around the house.
He's also good friends with my cat and I would like for him to be able to play with the cat.

do you have any links?

Is it the rooby the robot with a circuit board on top and a small tank like chssis underneath? or is it just a model replica of the televised robbie the robot with motors in the feet?

Do yu have any links for the specific model that you have rather than a wiki entry of the robot used on the television. The reason why is because nobody can tell you if you can add sensors unless we know wether it already has an electronics system and also what that system is.

(if it doesnt have any electronics then you can add your own but its ging to be a challenge if you dont have any experience.)

Looking at it, I have to ask, how tall is it? I ask as I have never seen anything like it before. Providing that it is better than eighteen inches tall, there may be some options. I would also be curious to whether you are using a computer motherboard for this or are you using basic stamp? I ask as it is technical details like these that help to solve such problems.

It's just a toy, you can't just glue a servo on it, solder some wires onto it and hope it'll work...

Do some research before you ask a question you blithering baffoon, and if you do ask a question put some effort into it.
Do you assume everybody knows that toy of yours?

You can install sensors into anything you want . . . a water bottle for example.

You just need other electronics to process that data, like a microcontroller . . .

Then actuators to use that data . . . like servos . . .

nope you can't use that microcontroller

those microcontrollers are one time programmable and were designed for that application ONLY.
