I'm clearly not up on what the kids of today are into. Until recently, when my friend's 9 year old daughter had a Moshi Monster themed party, I had never heard of these creatures. Apparently they come from a very popular online game, so I guess I'll find out when my son is a bit older! So if you've got a Moshi enthusiast in your life this could make a fab Christmas present. Amazon has this Moshi Monsters Talking Katsuma Plush in its Deals of the Week, reduced to £11.62. That's a 22% saving on the RRP of £14.99. Delivery is free with Amazon Prime.
Children squeeze the tummy of Katsuma to hear her laugh, talk or giggle.This toy has a personality too - Katsuma looks confident and tough on the outside, but is soft and friendly once you get to know her. This soft and cuddly toy even comes with an Adoption Certificate and a secret code that unlocks a special in-game item.
The toy measures 23cm tall. It is suitable for ages 4 and up. While the toy does require three LR44 batteries, a set is thankfully included.
Judging by the reviews, this toy is bound to be a hit with the kids, while annoying the adults. But isn't that sort of the point? Here's what one reviewer said: "All the kids seem to want anything Moshi just now and my daughter was pleased with this, like most of these talking toys it has an irritating talking voice and you can hardly make out what is being said but the kids seem to understand these things even if I don't, its quite soft so she loves to cuddle up in bed with it."
