Like any good friend, Scout will make preschoolers feel special: Parents can personalize the play experience. They can program in kids’ names and their favorite foods, colors, and animals across more than 15 activities for an experience that feels one-of-a-kind and even more interactive.

For even more fun, kids can press Scout’s ears and back paws to play more than 40 songs, lullabies, and melodies or to explore games and activities. The right back paw will also activate nighttime mode that plays soft lullabies to help soothe kids to sleep. The lullabies will play for either five, 10, or 15 minutes to prep kids for bedtime.  Scout’s collar will also glow softly as the lullabies play for a soothing experience.

All of these above features are also available in a purple Violet character style of the same plush.

Overall, this plush pal will keep kids busy and intrigued and, most importantly, spark their curiosity and encourage a love of learning. Through interactivity and engaging play, My Pal Scout Smarty Paws is sure to become kids’ favorite plush in no time.
