Companion Robot

Hi everyone, as im going to be bringing 2 vintage robots into the 21st century, i am wanting also to eventually build my girlfriend a companion bot.

She lives overseas in asia, and it's going to be awhile until we sort immigration out and everything, so we only see each other twice a year.

I have a Robie Jnr i can hack, but wanted to ask if that's a suitable platform?

I would want it to have a voice, and to be able to leave her voice messages, and have it greet her and her 2 dogs in mandarin.

Would something like the Robie be ok to upgrade you think for voice communication, etc?

EDIT-Just noticed the EZ-B IoTiny, would that fit inside? Sounds perfect for a talking, listening robot? Appreciate any help thanks. : )
