Perfect first personalised plush pals!

My Pal Scout & My Pal Violet Smarty Paws, RRP $39.95

Cute, cuddly and customisable! My Pal Scout & My Pal Violet Smarty Paws make the perfect friends for your little one. Scout and Violet will introduce them to first words, counting, and feelings and emotions. They’ll even teach your child how to spell their own name! Personalise the play and learning across more than 15 activities by programming your My Pal with your child’s name, favourite food, colour and animal. 

Touch-sensitive front paws feature sensors that play silly reactions, music, games and mindfulness exercises when little ones hold both paws, and stop when they let go; introducing cause and effect. Their ears and back paws also have little surprises. Press an ear to play 40+ songs, lullabies, and melodies, or to explore games and activities. The right back paw button activates night-time mode that plays soft lullabies for 5, 10 or 15 minutes to help soothe little ones to sleep. Scout & Violet's paws can also help create magical moments for children and caregivers when everyone hold hands with Scout or Violet, creating an interactive experience everyone will love. 

My Pal Scout & My Pal Violet Smarty Paws is suitable for toddlers from 6 months and is available from September from Target, good toy stores and online retailers.

When it's time to get up and get active, switch to 10 energetic songs like "If You're Happy and You Know It". Encourage kids to sing along to 10 classic favourites like "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," then relax with 10 lullabies and classical music pieces like Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy.’ With Bluetooth® wireless technology, adults can stream music from their own devices to add songs and soundscapes to the included 40 songs.
