Testers told us they weren’t sure what to make of Zoomer Hedgies when they first saw it. At first glance it struck them like another loud, moving, tumbling toy. That was before they watched their children play with it. Zoomer is more like bringing a virtual pet into your home. Children control its movements by touching certain parts. For instance, when you touch the forehead, it rolls around and does gymnastic tricks, it will make a variety of noises when you touch its nose. It even cries, sneezes, and raps (bet your dog can’t do that!). If you flip it over and tickle it, it laughs and curls up in a ball. Kids really felt like they were “interacting” with a pet as it responded to them. While it will work on carpet, it is recommended for use on hard floors. The toy is well made and withstood a whole lot of play. The fur is very soft to the touch and it even comes with its own comb. After watching their children engaged and laughing endlessly, parents came to really appreciate Zoomer.
