Cheryl Cole, Britney Spears, Madonna – they’re all pretty rubbish at lip-syncing, especially when they’re dancing. So thank goodness the Kuchi-Paku Lion Animal Speaker has roared its way into Firebox HQ to take this much-maligned art form to a whole new level of hilarity.
Watch him sing and boogie along
to your favourite songs!
A global craze in the making (you may have seen it featured in an episode in the 2nd series of 'The Good Wife'), this impossibly cute, battery-operated soft toy is set to have owners and onlookers in stitches as it lip-syncs and boogies along to whatever music it hears. Raargh! It’s a bit like a feline version of Milli Vanilli (kids get Googling) minus the terrible music. It also doubles up as a speaker for your MP3 player. Just plug it in and you’re good to go. You can then squeeze your Kuchi-Paku’s paw and it’ll dance and lip-sync to the tunes it’s playing.
Best of all you can choose ‘microphone mode’, so your cuddly king of the jungle lip-syncs to your voice. Just plonk him on a desk, hide underneath and start speaking. Telling someone they’re fired via a comedy lion has never been such fun. Actually it’s never been done at all. Until now.
Press his paw to stop him dancing
If your Kuchi-Paku’s hooked up to your MP3 player and you tire of its incessant dancing/mouthing off, simply squeeze its paw and it will calm down while the music continues. It’s ideal for kids, pranksters and infantile music fans of all ages.
Short of inserting a speaker into a highly intelligent parrot that’s had dance lessons and its beak replaced with fluffy lips (well it could happen), we can think of no better talking pet with which to amuse yourself. So get ordering. But hurry, because judging by the reaction the Kuchi-Paku Lion’s been getting around these parts it’ll fly off the shelves faster than, erm, well, faster than a singing, dancing lion that appears to know the words to Bohemian Rhapsody. Quick, here comes the boss!
The perfect gift for animal/music/toy lovers everywhere
