The Babble Balls are interactive toys that talk or make exciting animal sounds when touched. The improved technology is so sensitive it can be triggered by a pet breathing on it, or just by the vibration of a pet walking past it. When play is finished, the Babble Ball turns off automatically and waits to be touched again. Pets think it's actually alive! Babble Balls now come in the wisecracking "Talking" series, and the "Animal Sounds" series. Patents Pending. This new and improved generation of Babble Balls features durable high impact ABS construction, triple the sounds, improved sound quality and replaceable batteries!
