At first sight, it looks like any other cute fluffy plush toy - and it is, which means that the Hamster Mimicry Pet has already earned a spot in thousands of Japanese homes. But there's more to this 13.5 cm (5.3") maple-and-white doll and you have to put in three AAA alkaline batteries (sold separately) and speak to it to understand what: the hamster is able to repeat everything it hears, in any language and while moving. This is a toy that never gets old!
The Hamster Mimicry Pet can be the perfect companion for any small child. It's especially recommended for ages 3 and over, when the child has developed some language skills and can appreciate that the doll is repeat what they say. Since most children enjoy mimicry, repetition of words or phrases leads to better language skills both in their native and foreign languages. Education meets fun in an incredibly cute package that screams Japan - or any other word it hears!
