FurReal Friends Baby Butterscotch, My Magical Show Pony Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

In 2006, Hasbro introduced Butterscotch Pony in its FurReal Friends line. Hasbro has put the same interactive technology that makes the horse seem to come to life in the new Baby Butterscotch, My Magical Show Pony. Kids can cuddle, feed, and care for this miniature filly. Baby Butterscotch comes to life through animated facial expressions and life-like pony sounds. There are nine sensors on Butterscotch: forehead, nose, mouth, left cheek, right cheek, a microphone, back, left side of body, and right side of body. When kids touch any of these sensors or talk near the microphone, Baby Butterscotch responds with movement and sounds. The pony has soft, poseable legs so kids can put Baby Butterscotch in a sitting position, then cuddle and nuzzle with Butterscotch and Butterscotch will nuzzle right back. Kids can "feed" Baby Butterscotch with the included pretend carrot and watch as Butterscotch moves its mouth to "chew" and makes crunching sounds. Baby Butterscotch also comes with a brush.

Is It Fun?

Baby Butterscotch, My Magical Show Pony gives kids a pretend experience of owning a pony, something most kids probably won't experience in real life. Kids will like the realistic movements and sounds they get from interacting with Baby Butterscotch as well as the pony's really cute look.

Who It’s For

Baby Butterscotch, My Magical Show Pony is for ages 4 and up.
