Airing on CITV and Boomerang, Oddbods is a collection of cute 3D animated sketches featuring seven hilarious characters. Each with a personality as distinct as their furry suits! No two characters are alike and when you put them together the consequences are as entertaining as they are unpredictable! The Oddbods toy range from Golden Bear launched back in July and reflects the show’s core values of love, laughter and imagination! We love them.
The monkeys were therefore delighted when I was asked if we would like to review The Oddbods Voice Activated Pogo Interactive Soft Toy!
Just touch his hand to start the amazing voice activation feature. There are two modes. Super sounds mode and walking mode and 10 random sounds! Speak, clap or shout to watch him walk and talk back in his very own quirky Oddbods language. Or switch off the walking function to listen to all his peculiar sounds! Suitable from aged 3+ he is pretty funny and very responsive! Pogo, a rebel and rule breaker (he sounds just like the monkeys) moves around in walk mode and makes various odd noises. We found him quite hilarious to be honest!Soft but robust Pogo fits right in here. Not that the monkeys need any help being silly, he joins in the fun and both the monkeys (and myself) were quite taken with his quirky manner and moves, which tended to be going round in circles!
So easy to play with. His mode (walking or talking) is changed on his back inside his buttoned clothing. We like that he can be turned off otherwise he would just respond to voices all the time (and no one is ever quiet here!).
At 32cms tall he is pretty big and could even be used as a little cushion when switch off! Pogo's RRP is £29.99 which I believe is very reasonable considering the fun factor and his voice activation function.
Here's a short clip we made of him!
I think both he and the other Oddbods Voice Activated Interactive Soft Toy - Fuse, will be very popular this Christmas!
We give Oddbods a great big thumbs up. Little monkey has even drawn him.
We were sent Pogo for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
