Copying what people say is one of the funniest things ever. Copying what people say is one of the funniest things ever. Copying what… look, you get the idea. Unfortunately so do Chatimals because these furry critters will repeat whatever they hear in a ridiculously high or low pitched voice. Hilarious. Well, ish.

Serious contenders for toy of the year, Chatimals are simple beyond belief. Just squeeze a paw, say your piece (it records in 5 second bursts over a period of 30 seconds) and prepare to giggle for no discernable reason as your plush pal repeats your musings, moving its lips as it does so. You can even talk to your Chatimal in another language! Magnifique!

    Age range should state 6 years + as I bought the Meerkat for my dad and he's had no end of fun and entertainment from it, as well as the Grandchildren enjoying it as well. It not only repeats what you say, but it also repeats your reaction to whatever it says back to you - which just makes you laugh more...... absolutely brilliant! Highly recommended.

    I got both Hamster and Meerkat chatimal for Christmas and I absolutely love them, but only the hamster does the low voice, and only once within the 5 repeating times which sucks because I prefer the low voice. I know the other guy said he doesn't like the low voice, well I love that, it'd be better if it did the low voice and the high voice for equal amounts of time. The other thing is that it would be even better if you did more animals, like a skunk, squirrel, wolf, cat, dog, bird etc.

    Excellent meerkat, so funny, I've named him Alexander hahaha. We like the high pitched voice more than the other though, but I keep talking to it in a Russian accent, so funny...would be an improvement if you could turn he/she/it on with a remote, then you could place it near someone and have a real laugh...and maybe having them repeat for more than 30 secs.... But it's a good idea that it turns the batteries off after 30 secs, saves power. Overall, its a brilliant invention...the manufacturers maybe should make a witch/ghost for Halloween and a Santa for Xmas. If they do I want a FREE one for suggesting it. It's well made by the way. Well done for inventing it whoever you are.

    I used one of these in hamleys, they are really fun and I was very tempted to buy one. I was with my friend so I said his name into it. My friend had his back turned and so I put it up to his ear. He was both confused and amazed when a squeaky little voice called his name!
