This adorable little Hamster Chatimal™ loves to repeat what you say, but in his own critter voice. Simply squeeze the fuzzy hamster toy’s left paw and then record a short message (up to five seconds long). He'll repeat the message back to you in a funny, high-pitched voice. Speak again and he'll continue to respond (if there's a silence of more than 30 seconds, just squeeze his hand again). A very special hamster toy, he makes a hilariously fun gift for all ages. Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included).
For ages 4 and up.

Comments about Product: This was exactly what my 9 yr old niece wished for and she loves it. I couldn't find it in a store near me (mostly big box stores), other online stores were charging more than twice the price (which I would not have paid for; I could buy her something else on her wish list). It does as described: repeats what you say in a funny voice. My sister said my niece and her brother 3 years younger were laughing all night long making the hamster say funny things. My sister is a bit tired of the voice, though...so a word of warning to parents who don't like high pitched chirpy noises, even if it entertains your kids. To make my $4.99 shipping limit, I decided to buy the Money one for a nephew who is only 1 yr 8 months old, who also loves it. I'll write a separate review for the monkey one.

don't like it's box
Comments about Product: i bought 4 for gifts, and of course haven't given them yet, as they are for Christmas. However, i wasn't too please with the packaging. Just a white box, says MADE IN CHINA really big on it. I didn't even think about before i purchased. i really don't like buying from China, and i don't like to have it advertised in great big letters. i hope we like the product.

VERY CHATTY HAMSTER!
Comments about Product: This little guy has a very cute voice! I was a little disappointed though, to find out that the recorded messages are not saved.... which was my intention to give as a gift to my daughter who loves and owns hamsters and is expecting her first baby. Very entertaining and children will love it. He even can record a really cute sneeze!

My granddaughter's favorite
Comments about Product: This was almost immediately my granddaughter's favorite gift. However, it arrived with one of the batteries corroded. We were able to clean the compartment and the contacts, replace the batteries, and all was well. She loves her hamster, and happily has long conversations with it. We appreciate that it does shut off by itself!

I would buy this item again.
Comments about Product: This was a gift to our 8 year old granddaughter for Christmas. She loved it! We (grandparents & parents) never laughed so hard when it repeated everything we said. In fact, her parents want one for themselves!

Adorable & Fun!
Comments about Product: My son is 3 years old & he absolutely loves his Chatimal! He laughs so hard every time the hamster repeats after him! The toy is cute & a lot of fun and requires no assembly, etc... It came with fresh batteries & ready to play! He is like a new friend!

I hope the kids love him as much as I do
Comments about Product: I love these hamsters! The cute little hamster voice cracks me. My husband said I should have bought one for myself(lol). I purchased 2 of these for my 3 yr old twin nephews. They love animals so I'm hoping this will be perfect. I can't wait to see their reaction when they open them.
The only problem wss that the included batteries were not alkaline. I didn't think they even make regular batteries any more. I replaced them, wrapped the gifts & now they're ready to go!

Lots of laughs with this one!
Comments about Product: Had a hard time getting the Chatimal to work with the green batteries provided - Glad we had fresh batteries at hand, or it would have been a very disappointing birthday gift! Seems the instructions on getting the Chatimal to record were vague, as well.

More fun to talk to than a lot of people
Comments about Product: I think he's clever and a lot of fun to use with kid's or adults. Better than the old talking parrot.
