Christmas Countdown – Day 6
Last year in the lead up to Christmas I wrote about Little Live Pets and how much my girls loved playing with their little bird. To be honest at the time I was not sure how long their obsession would last and I did worry the bird would end up at the bottom of the toy box but I was wrong. One year later they have all acquired their own bird and still play with them a lot, in fact I think after this latest addition we officially need an aviary to house our flock:
Cleverkeet (RRP $79.95, ages 5+) is one of the latest interactive toy pets to be added to the Little Live Pets family and the twitter on the street is that he is on top of many Christmas lists. From the moment this cheeky bird joined the club he has been hugely popular with many stores selling out in a flash.
Cleverkeet comes with his very own playground full of bird entertainment and has definitely had some more training than his little sibling: put him on the swing perch and he happily flaps his wings and swings back and forth, pop him on his dance perch and he grooves to the music (or your own music) or place him on the food perch and he’ll bend down for a treat, you can even sit him in his very own cart and he’ll get those wheels moving and scoots around like a pro. If you want to take your buddy for a walk you can clip him onto the hand perch and show him around.
Just like the other Little Live Pets birds Cleverkeet loves to sing and chirp, but you can tell this smart bird has been working particularly hard on his communication skills as his ability to talk, listen and respond is impressive. You can for example pick your own name for him to which he will respond, you can ask him yes/no questions or you can teach him your own words so he will repeat them just like a real bird. Cleverkeet is soft to touch and responds to petting, his claws securely click onto the perches so he stays neatly in place during play time.
Parents are big fans of Little Live Pets too: No food to buy, no vet bills to pay, no cages to clean, no walks in the rain and no chance of escaping, what’s not to love? If you are going away over the Christmas holidays you don’t need to hire a pet-sitter either, just take your favourite pet with you on your trip. Don’t tell the kids but you can turn Cleverkeet off too for a well deserved rest from all the playing.
Cleverkeet is currently available in blue and pink and works on 2 AAA batteries.
