One of the newest and cutest toys on the shelf at your local toy store is the Teacup Piggy!   These little pigs are based off of real live teacup pigs, tiny enough to fit in a teacup, that are so popular right now.  The electronic toy teacup piggies, prophesied to become as beloved as the Zhu-Zhu Pets, come in several different colors and with many optional accessories including outfits, glamour and limo sets, and more.

Each Teacup Piggy playset comes with the piglet, a birth certificate (they each have a name), a hairbow, a bottle, and a teacup, and they each say over 20 different phrases.  But the sweetest features are that when you lay the piggies on their sides they’ll start snoring (little piggy snores), and they also come with bottles so that you can feed them (and they make the appropriate noises for chow time, too).  When they’re done eating, they’ll tell you that they are full – and if you stroke their backs they’re happy!

A Mom’s Thoughts

I received a Teacup Piggies playset along with an accessory set and an outfit for review.  As soon as I released our piggy from the package and set it from “Try me” mode to “On”, she introduced herself as “Jade” and told us that she loved dollhouses.

She has more of a teen girly voice than I had expected, but it is clear and easy to understand.  Some of the phrases she says are:  “Please take my picture with your camera!”, “Decorating dollhouses – love it!”, “LOL!”, and she does a lot of giggling.  She also will start sleeping soundly if you lay her on her side, and ask you why you are waking her up when you put her upright again.  She has two other touch-sensitive sensors – one on her back and one on her nose.  If you leave her for awhile she’ll say she’s sleepy and ask to take a nap in her teacup.  After about 15 minutes, this toy will automatically turn off.

I have to say that my 2-year-old loves this toy!  She thinks it is beyond hilarious that when she pushes on the pig’s nose that the pig says, “Oh! That tickles!  My nose is sensitive!”  She also loves the little accessories and outfit, especially the bow and bottle (both come with the pig), the sunglasses, and the outfit.  And no wonder, this piggy is super cute!  Even turned off, it’s great for imaginative play.

Watch this video and see my daughter’s delight with this piggy for yourself!
