Hasbro launches its newest FurReal Friends pet pal.
Hasbro officially launched FurReal Friends Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Tiger in celebration of International Tiger Day on July 29, 2017. Roarin’ Tyler will retail for $129.99 and will be available nationwide at most major retailers, including online juggernaut, Amazon.com.
The importance of International Tiger Day is to promote awareness about tiger conservation and doing our part as human beings to protect their natural environments. Alarmingly, tigers are the world’s largest of the large cats and ninety-seven percent of tigers have vanished over the last hundred years, leaving only about three thousand or so wild tigers. It’s about time to take action and preserve our tigers.
Roarin’ Tyler is an adorably cute plush animated tiger that comes to life with animatronics-like technology. He’s interactive with over one hundred sounds and motions that make him feel life-life. A cool feature is that if you roar at Tyler the tiger, he will roar right back at you, making it feel like a real tiger. When you pet him, he closes his eyes. He even reacts to his squeaky toy and his hind legs move so he can bow. Roarin’ Tyler, the Playful Pup is powered by four C batteries. Kids are absolutely going to fall in love with this latest member of the FurReal Friends family. It’s the next best thing to having a pet tiger without having to worry about your child being in danger. We loved Roarin’ Tyler so much that we placed him on our list of Top Toys for Christmas 2021.
