Future musicians are getting a treat!  VTech is introducing a pawsome new musical friend to its robotics line.

DJ Beat Boxer is a purple Boxer plush toy with music-mixing abilities. Kids can push the buttons on her headphones to start a rhythm, shake her paw to add in backbeats or harmonies, scratch her head to create record-scratching sounds, boop her nose for an air horn effect, or press her ear to record a quick phrase to drop into the song.

Each interaction adds another layer to the music that kids can use to create a whole new song with DJ! This musical pupper’s head will nod along to the music while her jowls will flap to the beat. She will also bark and sneeze in reaction to kids’ cuddles. 

DJ Beat Boxer is designed for kids ages 3 and up, and will be available this fall at retailers nationwide for the suggested retail price of $37.99.
