Hasbro launches kitty toy for grandmas

Hasbro launches kitty toy for grandmas

Toy manufacturer Hasbro has developed a range of robot kitties to serve as company for senior citizens. Its toys have always been for the ages 7 - 77, but it will now expand to ages up to 105.

The benefits, but not the downsides

Its Joy for All line is catered specifically towards the elderly, who need the joys of a pet without all the downsides like having to clean. Its robot kitties do not have to be groomed, walked or fed. No furniture will suffer from their nails either.

 

On the other hand, all of the benefits you get from a pet, will remain: they move when they are touched and they will pur when stroked in their necks. If you pet them on the cheek, they will caress your hand and they also have lights in their eyes.

 

It even has a standby mode: when they haven't been touched for several minutes, their eyes will close to save energy.

 

Quick delivery possible

The very first replacement kitty is called the Companion Pet Cat in three different colours: silver, orange and white cream. One such Companion Pet Cat will cost 99.99 euro.

 

Hasbro currently only delivers these to people in the United States and it takes up to 10 days to get one, but if absolutely necessary, a 1 or 2-day delivery is possible.
