Put side-by-side with a real, live cat, it would be hard to tell the difference from this puppet. True to its breed, this cat looks and feels like the living feline — floppy, relaxed and almost boneless. It is made of long, spiky plush in browns and tans with white paws and face, and has a long, fluffy tail.
— This relaxed feline garnered a TDmonthly Top Toy 2007 award for its realistic fur and overall appearance, as well as its friendly persona. It’s a loveable creature that kids can carry around while “speaking” to others by manipulating its mouth.
— As of 05/13/2011 this product had 4.7 out of 5 stars from 13 reviews on Amazon.com. Cons: One user said that the eyes looked "demented and pretty scary" and that "Its little mouth is red and open, as though ready to take little nips out of me while I sleep."

Kids can tune in to the hottest sound around with this singing plush puppet. Each Pet Yapper plays three favorite children's songs, "Old MacDonald," "London Bridge" and "Frere Jacques," in its own distinctive voice. Favorite tunes have never been sung quite this way before. Calypso the Cat is just one of eight styles in the Russ My Pet Yapper assortment, which also includes dogs, a cow, a pig, a frog and a monkey. They're all surface washable, too. This doll measures 12” x 12” x 12” and weighs 1 lb.

— Burdette said she sold about a dozen of the puppets a month, which is close to the average sales in puppets for most retailers TDmonthly spoke with in spring 2007.
— "When you move your hand inside the mouth, the Yapper will sing each note of the song. So, the Cat will meow the notes, the Dog will bark them, and so on," said Arline Wall, senior vice president of product development and marketing for Russ Berrie.
