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 AA batteries (not included).
For ages 4 and up.

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.

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.

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!

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!
