Little Live Pets Turtle will Make a Great Christmas Gift
These adorable creatures are hitting every child’s wish list this Christmas. Little Live Pet Turtles (find the turtles here) seem to be all the rage this year for kids between the ages of 5 and 15 years. I know my nieces and nephews have bought a few Little Live Pet Turtles and frogs over this past year. Why are they a hit? There isn’t much telling, but you might start to think about it being the next best thing to the actual live turtles that you would but at the pet store. Let me tell you, I kind of wish that’s how we would started our first pet here in this house.
Our Live Pet Turtle
For now we have Squirtle (Yes, my oldest is a Pokemon fan), our actual live pet turtle that lives in a fish tank in our dining room. I got her for my oldest son when he graduated high school. It was the only thing he asked for and I thought it made a great graduation gift. Sadly, he won’t be able to take her with as he joins the Army. (at least not yet) The kids love to go in and watch her swim around and she even likes to take food from my fingers. But for those little ones, you have to be careful.
Here’s a few reasons you might want to start off with the Little Live pet turtles:
1. They won’t get their fingers snapped when trying to feed a real, live turtle.
2. No salmonella poisoning to worry about.
3. If they get tired of being pet owners you won’t have to worry about selling it or continuing to raise it.
4. The Little Live Pet Turtle walks and swims just like the real thing.
Sounds great right? So now you are probably wondering exactly why you would want to get your child one of these “crazed” toys that have made it to the Hot Christmas Gifts for this year. They are cute! On land the wobble around on their fins, in water they take off swimming like an actual turtle does.
