MSRP: $4.95

This is a cool, squishy, squashy, vibrantly colored replication of a Red-Eyed Tree Frog. It feels clammy, it looks clammy, and it´s altogether gross ... which is the whole point. It´s a fairly accurate reproduction (except that it´s an order of magnitude larger than a real Red-Eyed Tree Frog), and would look quite comfortable out in the wilderness. It´s very fun to play with.

TDmonthly Review:

What Is It?
This is a cool, squishy, squashy, vibrantly colored replication of a Red-Eyed Tree Frog.  It feels clammy, it looks clammy, and it’s altogether gross… which is the whole point.  It’s a fairly accurate reproduction (except that it’s an order of magnitude larger than a real Red-Eyed Tree Frog), and would look quite comfortable out in the wilderness… except for the fact that it doesn’t move unless you move it.

What We Thought
This thing is gross in a fun way, and when thrown against the wall gives a resounding “splat”.  From an educational standpoint, me and my son sat down, discussed frogs in general, what kind of frog this was in particular (the Red-Eyed Tree Frog, or Agalychnis callidryas), and then… “splat”!  We threw it against the wall.  It’s fun to play “frog catch”, “frog ball” and “frog daredevil” with it.  Froggy don’t mind.  All in all, a very fun fake frog.  And did I mention educational?

Why They’ll Want It
For the grossness factor.  For the “splat” factor.  And for the “scare mom” factor.  This is great for the kid who doesn’t live near a pond, is too young for a pet of their own, or simply wants to play “frog ball” and a living frog just won’t do.  It also doubles as a great “Show & Tell” project for school.  But of course, after the science demonstration… “splat”!
