Interactive animals are a real toy hit of recent years. Despite the huge interest they enjoy among parents, these gadgets have as many supporters as opponents. Their lovers buy them to children because of their similarity to a real animal and hoping that such a toy will become a great alternative to a real dog or cat. Opponents of interactive animals, in turn, point out that the toy will always remain just a toy, which will never be able to replace the child's relationship with a real quadruped.

So how is it really with these interactive animals? In what situations is it worth giving them to your child as a gift, and when is it better to invest your money in something else instead? Let's see!

Interactive pet - the appearance and behavior of a real quadruped

Interactive animals have enjoyed great popularity in recent years. They are encouraged to buy them not only ubiquitous ads, which in the heavens praise the advantages of their products, but also attractive appearance and high functionality, they offer interactive pets.

Interactive animals resemble real kittens and puppies, they are pleasant to the touch, attractively made, and, most importantly, interact with the child and respond to their instructions.

It is no wonder then that many children, seeing TV commercials and toys displayed in shop windows, would love to have them in their collection. Interactive animals, despite many advantages, have one major disadvantage: they are quite expensive to buy. Their price ranges from 100 to even 300 PLN. Is it worth allocating this amount and buying one for your child?

Interactive pet - a substitute for a real dog or cat

Small children love animals. Two and three year olds dream of having their own dog or cat with whom they can play, look after and spend time together. However, not all of us have the opportunity to bring an animal into our home. Long working hours, household duties and living in a block of flats do not always allow us to properly care for an additional "member" of the family. In such a situation it may be a good solution an interactive pet that will become a substitute for a real dog or cat for a child.

If we can't afford real animal its interactive counterpart has virtually the same advantages: it does not eat, does not dirty, does not require regular walking outside, visits to the vet and many other activities. Let's not fool ourselves, buying a real dog or cat, the burden of caring for him will fall almost entirely on our shoulders. Of course, the child can help us and the older they are, the more duties they will perform on their own, but it is our shoulders who will be responsible for the living being.

We don't have such problems with toys. Thanks to him, we gain peace and no additional responsibilities, and the child of his dream play companion, who looks and resembles a real animal.

An interactive pet in allergy homes

The interactive toy is also perfect for homes where, for health reasons, real animals cannot live. Some of us suffer because of allergy to fur and other allergies and despite their sincere intentions, they can't embrace a live animal. An interactive dog or kitten will be an excellent alternative in this situation, which will at least minimize the child's longing for a real animal.

An interactive pet for learning empathy and responsibility

Many parents decide to buy an interactive dog or kitten for their child, thinking that thanks to him the child will become bmore responsible and in the future will be better prepared to care for a living creature.

In this situation, we should keep however be very careful and remember that a toy is just a toy. The interactive animal does not protest when the child is handling it incorrectly, does not feel pain or complains when left alone. The situation is completely different in the case of a living creature who feels pain, misses and requires love and attention every day.

Therefore, if we buy a child an interactive pet in order to teach them responsibility and proper care for the animal, we should closely watch the toddler's behavior towards the toy and teach him the correct patterns. In this situation, a toy is only a toy and will not teach a child how to act properly in relation to a real animal.

Nice interactive animals - when and when not?

In summary, an interactive pet will be a good choice if we do not have the right conditions for a real animal or for health reasons we can not live with him under one roof. It also works well when we are just looking for an interesting and nice toy for a child. An interactive animal will surely please every toddler.

However, when we want a child to learn how to care for a real dog or cat using an interactive animal, it is worth rethinking your choice. Let's remember that a toy is just a toy and will never be able to replace a real, deep relationship with a live animal. The toy will also not show him the right behavior towards a real animal.
