VTech has released a seriously cute kangaroo that is not only able to hop all over the house, but it comes with its very own joey! I don't know a toddler around who doesn't love kangaroos, so this is destined to be a massive hit in the lead up to Christmas. Usually $79, you can buy it for just $69 over at Mr Toys Toyworld right now.
Hop-a-Roo is bouncing pet kangaroo with cuteness in spades and some excellent interactive features that are activated by pressing the light-up heart button, pouch button and paw buttons. She can play three songs, ten melodies, and even say phrases in an Aussie accent. Love that!
Hop-a-Roo is not just heaps of fun to watch and cuddle, but she also encourages younger tots to move, whether it's by crawling, or even taking those first steps.
While the hopping feature is undoubtedly WOW (my kangaroo-obsessed son would flip over it), my favourite element of this VTech gem is the addition of a joey - because we all know that tots love babies. The joey can actually be moved in and out of Mum's pouch and kids can dive into loads of imaginative play using both kangaroos.
Interactive pets are something new for VTech, and judging by the amount of cuteness they've packed into this one, I cannot wait to see what they come up with next!
Standard shipping is $9.90 at Mr Toys Toyworld.
Yogee Toys $74.90
