What Spinmaster have to say
Zoomer Hedgiez are cuddly pet hedgehogs that want to roll home with you. They can walk, do headstands, and even somersault around. Press their nose to make them sneeze, whistle or give you a kiss. Each Hedgy has their own unique style — complete with soft pet-able, brush-able fur. These furry friends love to be tickled, have pretty light-up eyes, and even have secret tricks for you to unlock. Collect all four - Tumbles, Dizzy, Whirl and Flip. Zoomer Hedgiez are full of giggles!
What's in the box?
In the box we discovered our new furry friend and a cute little hedgehog shaped comb, perfect for brushing it's soft, colourful fur. We also found a printed instruction / cheat sheet to help us discover Flip's tricks! The toy is nice and easy to remove from the packaging, however you do need 4 AAA batteries which aren't supplied, so make sure you have them (and a small screwdriver) to hand ready to set up your child's new friend without delay!
Guaranteed to make you giggle!Although, my six year old was smitten with Flip almost immediately, I've got to admit that at first I thought it looked a bit bright and garish and the glowing eyes a little freaky, however I soon changed my mind after watching my daughter interact with it and her delight as she pressed it's nose to make it sneeze or they way she clapped with joy a it did her favourite trick and rolled over! The electronic squeaks were quite endearing and not nearly as annoyed as I would have thought (until my daughter spent a day mimicking them that is, but that's another story!)
One of the features I'm quite fond of though, is the ability to reduce the volume! My eldest child has had 'interactive' toys before and I've sometimes resorted to removing the batteries just to get them to stop making crazy noises! It also has a simple off switch so isn't one of those toys that will freak you out by making random noises as you walk across the room in the middle of the night!
Elizabeth loves her fluffy friend can often be found chatting away to him and brushing his fur. She gives Zoomer Hedgiez a big thumbs up!
