I have my eye on several of these Christmas cuties. You can't go wrong in my book with Garfield swaying to "Here Comes Santa Claus" and Odie with his dancing Christmas tree lights. Not to mention Santa and a Bobblehead Reindeer.
Cuddle Barn makes online shopping easy too; you can preview a video of each special plush action before you choose to buy. The only difficulty is figuring out which cutie to pick!
Their newest toy sensation is Talking Tom, based on the popular Talking Friends app series (downloaded more than 400 millions times). This app series features an interactive animal with its own funny sayings, but will also repeat back everything you say in their individual funny voices. Talking Tom and Talking Ben, now also an original Disney cartoon series on the web at Disney.com, are becoming the hottest new app based toys since Angry Birds.
While we have yet to interact with the app, Talking Tom has become a quick hit in our house. He comes ready to play right out of the box, batteries included (though it's always a good idea to have extra batteries on hand).
Tom is sensitive and will pick up on background noises, so you'll want to turn off the t.v. or any other devices so he won't garble them. You simply press his foot, wait for the flashing light, and talk to him. He will repeat back what you say in his funny voice.
My toddler thinks this is the funniest thing. She is fascinated with his moving mouth. She will start laughing at him, Tom will repeat her high pitched giggle, and it'll just keep going. You can't help but laugh yourself. We supervise her with him since he's not a regular plush and has a moving mouth and battery compartment.
My hubby and son also enjoy having Tom repeat what they say; it's amusing to hear how Tom will make his voice go deeper when my hubby speaks.
A great feature about this toy is that the volume isn't overpowering and you can turn him off when you are finished talking to him. He also can stand on a shelf for display and makes a fun conversation piece for holiday parties!
Talking Tom and Talking Ben will make a great gift recommended for ages over 2+.
