I'd like to introduce you to our newest member of the family - a new cat! This cat isn't actually real, but my daughter treats it just the same. Ever since she was small, my daughter has wanted a pet cat. Unfortunately, my husband is allergic to cats, so she's been out of luck. That is, until we found out about Hasbro's Joy For All Companion Pets.

There are 3 kinds of cats to choose from, and they have just added a pup! Because of the way they look, move, and sound like the real thing, the pup and cats from Joy For All Companion Pets are perfect for everyone. Recommended for ages 5 - 105, these pets are designed to bring comfort, companionship, and fun to loved ones young and old, and have such a positive impact on isolation, loneliness, and all forms of cognitive decline in older adults.

To see our Orange Tabby Cat in action, check out this fun video my daughter put together:

When your new pet arrives, it's ready to go right out of the box. Batteries are included, as well as a brush, and a care guide to get the most from your pet and keep it working great! The cat looks so real, from it's soft fur to the textured paws and facial features.

After flipping the switch on, the cat immediately came to life. The built-in sensors allow the cat to respond to petting and hugging with cat-like movements and sounds. VibraPurr also makes the cat sound and feel like real purring!

My daughter loves that when she's interacting with the cat a lot, it rotates on its own so that she can pet and scratch its belly! It's such a fun feature that makes the experience personal and engaging.


Like any pet, my daughter named her new cat almost immediately. She chose the name, Flame, because of the orange color of the fur. To make sure no one forgets the name, my daughter went through our craft supplies to create a collar for our new family member and also made a video tutorial:

Pour out the alphabet beads and spell out your pet's name. Thread the beads onto a fuzzy stick in order and place them in the center of the stick.

Next, pour out the pony beads and thread the same amount of beads on either side of the alphabet beads. Kids can use a color pattern, or make it totally random! The best part is, is that they are being creative and making something all on their own.

Add as many or as little beads as you want, but be sure to leave an inch or two at both ends of the fuzzy stick.

Place the collar around your stuffed animal pet's neck, and twist the ends of the fuzzy stick together to keep it in place. Kids will love making collars for all of their stuffed animals, and now you don't have to worry about forgetting the name of your child's pet...again.

What are the names of your child's stuffed animal pets?

  1. I am planning a sleepover for my Daisy scouts coming up, probably the first weekend of November. This would be a great craft for that night!
