Is the Spin Master Zoomer Kitty Worth Buying?
Interactive toy pets are often bought as an alternative to the real thing, but few can actually capture the joy of playing with a pet. In this regard, Zoomer Kitty is somewhat ahead of the pack. The various modes of play are distinct, and Zoomer Kitty behaves noticeable different depending on the type of interactions she recognises. Cuddle mode, while not exactly furry and soft, offers children the feeling of reciprocation while Zoomer Kitty nuzzles into them. Meanwhile, play mode is a barrel of laughs, and Zoomer Kitty chases around the room, dancing, singing and even pouncing like a real cat. Of particular note is the fact that, if not being given attention, Zoomer Kitty will go off on her own. This is a nice lesson for children that, if left unattended, pets tend to wander off.
Zoomer Kitty charges via USB. There is a wall charger available, but it is sold separately. This is not an issue for most, but some buyers may be surprised if they haven’t researched the toy fully. The battery life per charging cycle is not great, but not terrible. Generally, Zoomer Kitty will work for around 30 minutes per charge. While this is plenty for most children, it does mean that parents need to monitor the use of Zoomer Kitty and try and charge it in between plays. Otherwise, your child will be left with a non-responsive kitty.
All in all, Zoomer Kitty is one of the best interactive toy pets on the market today. She responds well to interaction, and has enough modes of play to keep children entertained. Keep her fully charged, and children will soon become enamoured with their new pet.
