Like many little girls her age, my daughter has a very nurturing and motherly instinct. This past summer we adopted two kittens (we set out for one but ended up with two).
These little guys have had a big impact in my daughter’s life. We had a very rough summer with her being ill and her new kittens were such a source of comfort for her. Although both kittens are awesome, it’s the little orange tabby, Freddy, that really took a liking to Molly. He is the most gentle, tolerant kitten that you could imagine. They had an instant bond and he lets her do just about anything to him (of course we teach her to be gentle and loving to her cats).
When I first laid eyes on the FurReal Friends Pom Pom My Baby Panda Pet I knew this would be a toy my daughter would adore. Last year for Christmas at the top of her list for santa was “a walking, talking unicorn”. I wasn’t sure how I, I mean Santa, was going to pull that one off. But he did! Under the tree on Christmas morning was FurReal Friends Starbeam My Walkin’ Unicorn Pet. It was love at first sight. The unicorn, which she renamed Unicornia, has been a favorite ever since she got it. It’s a fun an interactive toy but Pom Pom is different. This adorable baby panda lets little ones feed their nurturing side in a big way.
Pom Pom is an adorable and very interactive little panda. She walks, she wiggle and giggles, and makes sweet little baby panda noises. She loves to be fed with her bottle and follow the sound of her rattle around.
Molly spends a lot of time caring for Pom Pom. Sometimes they just sit on the floor babbling at each other (I promise my four year old actually speaks very well), and she also likes to rock Pom Pom, singing lullabies to her and put her down in bed for a nap – We all have to be very quiet once Molly puts Pom Pom down for her nap. Pom Pom is the perfect toy for a little one like Molly who can be a little “high strung” (I say that with love) or anxious. There is just something about cuddling and feeding a baby that is soothing and calming, no matter what your age. Picking up Pom Pom and feeding her while she coos in her arms has a pretty big calming effect. That is a huge selling point for us!
If you have a little one on your Christmas list this year Pom Pom might be exactly what you’re looking for. She’s sweet and cuddly and encourages imaginative play in little ones. Pom Pom is so interactive (she actually has over 45 responses) that she won’t be one of those toys that your child plays with for 5 minutes and then never picks up again. Kids will want to play with Pom Pom again and again.
