As noisy toys go, we really are not big fans. They are annoying and loud, and the perfect gift to give to the child of a parent you might not like all too much. That being said, my views have changed since I walked into the lounge one night to find my husband giggling like a 13-year old girl on the couch. Why? He got hold of the kids’ Chatimals. Needless to say, I joined him and it was so much fun.
The next few days in our household consisted of wrestling matches and many tantrums over who got to play with the little talking hamster. It does not just talk – it repeats everything you say, and clearly! It repeats everything you say, and clearly! it repeats everything you say, and clearly! It repeats everything you say, and clearly! It repeats eve… okay, that was funnier in my head. Just switch your Chatimals on and talk to it, it repeats everything you say in a super funny and high pitched voice. I know that sounds like it could be insanely annoying, but it is actually quite cute and provides hours of fun!
Serious contenders for the ultimate Christmas gift, Chatimals are really simple and easy to use – which makes it great for kids between the ages of 3-5 years old. Just squeeze a paw, wait for the red light to go on and say your piece (it records in 5 second bursts over a period of 30 seconds) and prepare to giggle for no discernable reason as your plush pal repeats it, moving its lips as it does so.
Trust me, Chatimals are going to be huge this Christmas! See our Instagram for a video of how adorable this little critter is!
