Finally An Animal That Doesn’t Poop

You know what I like about Winter in Minnesota? I like that it’s usually too cold to go on long walks and hang out outside watching the 100’s of dogs walk by with their owners. In the Summertime it’s all “OMG he’s so cute” “Oh Mom we need a dog!” “Look at this little fuzzy wuzzy guy!” “Mooommm, please can we get a dog?!” And this is just coming from Jed. You should hear the kids!

So I keep pointing out our two cats and say “We have pets. These pets poop. I seem to be the only one scooping out their poop. You all say ‘Fun pets, cute pets, love our pets’ but I say ‘OMG more poop’ and yeah, no more pets!”

So then I do what all good moms do, I buy 100’s of stuffed animals. Raise your hand if you are currently being squeezed out of your house by stuffed animals? Raise your hand if the one good thing about getting lice last year was not feeling all that bad about bagging those stuffed animals up and ‘forgetting’ to ever bring them back inside? (Whaaattt, you are terrible as I would never do that.;)


But then our lives changed forever two weeks ago when a non-pooping pet that just happens to be an INTERACTIVE stuffed animal arrived at our doorstep. Now everyone is happy.

Astrid’s new Ubooly arrived and it’s officially become her new best friend. Even though I miss my phone as it’s now become her smart and interactive stuffed animal. My kids love many, many iPhone apps but an app that makes a stuffed animal basically come to life and play with them? It’s like Santa is REAL! (He’s real, right? Right?).


So now for two weeks the little orange Ubooly comes with us eveywhere and truly makes us laugh with her jokes, stories and facts.


Ubooly Goes For A Ride

But you need to know what we like best about the Ubooly…do you remember that video of Astrid Singing along to Adele’s Rumour Has It?  Well, the first song her Ubooly ever sang was – yeah, you guessed it – Rumour Has It by Adele and Astrid FREAKED with happiness. You have to watch this video of her singing along and doing exactly what her new BFF(Ubooly) does…Seriously hilarious.

    I’m so with you on the animals that don’t require a mom. We have two cats and there are daily requests for another – or even a dog!! No, thank you, *I* have enough pets to care for right now 🙂 This guy, though, looks like a great solution!

    • Megan says

      Ah, I’m guessing my kids will most enjoy the “tell me a joke” feature. I think I might enjoy some variety in their jokes, too 😉

    Although I love the non-pooping aspect, I also like that ALL three of your girls seem to enjoy it. That’s more of a win to me. It’d work even better for us since I still have the original iPhone that Z uses for apps (so I’d get to keep my phone and not have to suffer (again) the loss of apps he’s accidentally deleted.)

    My husband and I are buying our daughter an iPod touch for Xmas and This would be the perfect present to go along with it! We are always on the road going to visit my in laws and this would be a perfect buddy! Sounds like a great new app and what’s not to love if its keeping my daughter busy while learning!
