Nope, you’re not looking at Chip and Dale here. These fuzzy, furry creations are the latest robotic animal creations from the demented sick creative minds of SegaToys Japan.
I suppose the Yumepet Dream Squirrel is actually pretty cute. As a matter of fact, he’s so syrupy sweet that I think I’m gonna puke. Just stroke the little guy between the ears, and he’ll start wriggling around – sorta like the gopher in Caddyshack – but not really. According to Google’s Japanese translation: 1) MOZOMOZO move and press the stomach; 2) Press the tummy and the other stops; 3) The motion is soothing and pleasant person holds in his hand. Understood?
You can start building your very own Dream Squirrel army by heading over to AudioCubes and plunking down $29.95 (USD). They’re available in yellow or brown furtypes, and small enough to fit in your hand. You can check out the entire series of robotic Anipals over at SegaToys Japan.
