Louie was supposed to become a cleaning robot, but the lab he was created in had a delay in programming him with his cleaning skills. Instead, Louie sat over a long three-day weekend and discovered a bunch of old black-and-white romantic movies and watched them for hours. When the scientists came back to the lab to do Louie’s programming, his hard drive was so full of love stories that he was never able to be programmed correctly. Now all Louie does is make a romantic love story out of every event.
Louie the Lovebot was hand knit by Ifugao mothers, the same women who tend the world-famous Ifugao Rice Terraces. This toy offers them supplemental income so they can care for their families and stay on in their ancestral land while preserving the rice terraces which are a "priceless contribution of Philippine ancestors to humanity."
