Creepy animatronic nightmare-bot. Daughter loves it.
on August 7, 2013
There is a thin coating of fur and cuteness on the outside of this toy, but just beneath the skin it's a whirring, clicking, mewling abomination. My daughter loves it.
There are embedded buttons on the back and one front paw, and some sort of visual sensor in the face of this monstrosity, which when activated, cause it to judder through an approximation of kitty-stretching, kitty-pawing, and kitty spine-hyper-extending. My daughter can't get enough of these activities.
This simulacrum of cuddliness is actually rigid and unyielding, since there is no padding, only an orange and white cover stretched over a skeleton of terror, so the toy is entirely inappropriate for taking to bed -- in addition to being as hard as an unusually terrifying rock, it's prone to lurching into its routine of grinding and clanking and pushing your child out of bed in the middle of the night (there is no "night" mode -- only "on", "off", and "try me," the last of which sounds like a vaguely threatening challenge). Nevertheless, my daughter regularly demands it be included in that night's collection of bedtime toys.
In my opinion, it should be burnt and its ashes scattered on holy ground to prevent it from stealing the souls of everyone in the house while they sleep. One star.
From my 27-month old daughter's perspective, it's cuddly-wuddly wonderful and the best present daddy ever gave her. Five stars.
Averaging these two gives me the three star review I've indicated here.
