Nah, we’re just kidding about the pounce part. These furballs aren’t violent and whatever creeping suspicions you have about the contrary, it’s totally unfounded. Don’t you trust us?
These monkeys with manes are the latest from Tandar Interactive, who took the world by storm years ago with those ubiquitous Furbys. The new Tandars are quite a departure from their mega-selling predecessors in more ways than one. For starters, the Tandars are expressive. Their eyelids flutter (a bit of an exaggeration) and the fluffy mechanical creatures do their best making an emotional connection with the kiddies. (Just what the world needs—non human surrogate friends.)
But the real ace up the Tandars’ sleeves are the genders. Male, female (with appropriate bangs), and the strange MoHawk. We think the gender neutral MoHawk a bit strange. Since the Tandars are machines, they’re charged via a USB port in the tail.
The Tandars are actually a departure from most robot toys geared towards the boys. Tandars are blazing their own trail by softening the tech part with lovely animal features that inspire nurturing.
The furry monsters (are they actually based on a real simian species?) are due to hit stores this spring and will cost $50.00 plus accessories.
