Created in 2002, FurReal Friends are robotic toy pets that range from dogs to monkeys. Some of these toys are considered an alternative to having real pets for children. FurReal Friends have robotic movements that replicate the behavior of a certain animal. All the animal toys move in some way and are available in several sizes. Some FurReal Friends are small enough for a child to hold or big enough to be ridden by a child.
