Does anyone else here remember Sky Dancers? They were those flying figurines that spun off their bases and into the air. I wanted one for ages, but, looking back, I'm honestly a little happy my parents never caved and bought them for me and my sister. I mean, those things were dangerous.
Well, it looks like something similar is making its way onto store shelves sometime this fall – but these seem MUCH safer. They're called Owleez, and these little baby owls launch into the sky!
Once you adopt one of these Owleez, it's up to you to help them learn how to fly. They're completely interactive pets who will get more comfortable in the air with practice. Place your new pet in her nest (which is included) and just watch as she spreads her wings to take flight! There are eight different Owleez to collect in all.
Each one is made from durable and lightweight material, so they'll be okay if and when they crash. They make up to 100 different sounds and movements and can even respond to your touch. Feed your baby owl berries when she's hungry and make sure you check her eyes – because they change colour based on her mood. And after you tuck her into bed, you can plug in the nest's built-in USB cord to recharge.
They're currently available for pre-order at Chapters Indigo, where Owleez sell for $69.95 each. It looks like they'll be at Well.ca soon, and make sure you let us know if you spot them anywhere else in Canada!
