Wally and Ernie checking out the RoloRat

What’s this thing, Ernie?

It’s the FroliCat™ RoloRat cat toy, Wally.  We’re supposed to check out and play with it so we can tell everybuddy what we think of it.  The RoloRat is the newest, fun, interactive cat toy from FroliCat™.  Other toys from Frolicat™ include the Bolt™ and the Dart™.

So what does the RoloRat do, Ernie?

RoloRat rolls

It rolls…

RoloRat's eyes flash

And the eyes flash off and on…

RoloRat tries to get away from me

And it tries to get away from me.

Watch me and RoloRat in action!

The FroliCat™ RoloRat sure is a lot of fun to play with.  Once the mom popped in the 3 AAA batteries that it requires and turned it on, I wouldn’t stop chasing it around.  The RoloRat runs for about 10 minutes before shutting off automatically.  It also has a “play while you’re away” feature where, when set, it will turn on automatically every 2 hours.

If I had to say something negative about the RoloRat, it does make noise that might scare some cats.  Lemme tell you a little secret.  Wally was afraid of the RoloRat at first.  He wouldn’t go near it. What a wimp!  Another thing about the RoloRat…the plastic tail that whips around is very enticing and fun to chew on.  So humans, if your cat is a chewer like me, you won’t want to leave your cat alone with RoloRat or else RoloRat might find its tail missing.

But overall, I give the RoloRat big paws up!  For more information about the RoloRat or other fun FroliCat™ cat toys, visit the website HERE.

All done, RoloRat?
