An electronic toy pet may be able to fill a part of your little boy or girl’s heart. What little boy or little girl does not want a kitten or puppy or even a monkey? Yet, many parents may have a problem fulfilling this special request. There may be allergies or space problems; or they may not be allowed to have pets in their rental home.
An electronic toy can help to a degree. It is not the “real” thing, yet it could help fill a desire.
There are plenty of these toys available online. There are electronic kittens, puppies, cats, hamsters, even ponies! Their prices are not too high either if you take into consideration that you will not have to pay to feed them or take them to the vet. Yet, do be warned, many of these toys have tons of accessories, so that can be a bit expensive. On the positive side, the accessories can be offered as a bonus for good behaviour, etc.
One of the most popular electronic toys online this year is the Zhu Zhu pet hamster. If you have ever had a real hamster, then you know these particular creatures can be a bit “delicate.” In other words, they may not have a very long lifespan. The ZhuZhu pet hamster does not have that problem (unless it gets stomped on, ouch). These electronic toy pet hamsters also have a huge selection of accessories that make playing with them a lot of fun.
Other popular electronic toy pets come from the FurReal Friends by Hasbro. They have a selection of lifelike cats, kittens, puppies, tiny dogs, a panda, even a chimp. These cuddly toys move and make sounds just like the real animal. Some people even mistake them for real animals.
Cute electronic toy pets can teach your children how to take care of a real pet someday. This is especially helpful for parents of very small children who may wish to add a puppy, kitten or other small animals to their family. Yet, they hesitate because they may feel their child or children may hurt the tiny animal. With an electronic toy pet, the parents can show their children how to hold the electronic pets properly and even monitor their behaviour. Once they see their children have learned what not to do, they may feel they can add a small animal to their family.
You can even get robotic style pets too
If your child or children are asking for a pet, yet it is not a feasible option for the family at this time, then you may wish to consider purchasing an electronic toy pet. Remember, they do not eat, will not bite or scratch or make a mess. They are actually the perfect pet.
