Dancing Mumbles from the the movie Happy Feet is a toy that makes a great first impression by being cute and possessing some impressive tap dance moves. The Walk n Talk Dancing Mumbles is also kind of like this year's Furby in that it talks and responds to sounds.
But unlike the Furby, Mumble the penguin has the added benefit of tens of millions of people who first saw the block buster movie Happy Feet. So kids who have already seen the movie are excited about Mumble right out of the box. Dancing Mumble is certainly cute, cuddly and lovable. But the big hook for the toy is that it taps dances, impressively, to the song "Jump n Move". As such the toy makes a huge first impression.
Beyond first impressions, this toy is interactive through voice activation which will keep kids entertained. Likewise, the toy will dance to back ground music played. In this regard kids can dance with Mumble to their favorite music.
Other things to know about this toy include:
1. It stands about 1 foot tall.
2. It weighs about 2.5 lbs.
3. Is fun for kids of many ages, but will require a 4 or 5 year old to operate the buttons.
