Pomsies (SkyRocket) are like stuffed animals. All Pomsies have different names. My Pomsie is Snowball.

The toy does need batteries. It also comes with a little pink brush. For the emotions, there are different colors depending on its emotion. There is a chart that helps you understand Pomsies. It tells you about their eye color and what it means. These are the colors and their meanings:

  • Teal: happy
  • Yellow: hungry (feed it by pressing its mouth)
  • Green: hiccups (if you feed your Pomsie too much, it gets hiccups — shake it to make them go away
  • Blue: sneezy, coughing or shivering (press its nose to make it feel better)
  • Pink: silly
  • Rainbow: super happy

Also, if you press and hold the nose for one second, it will switch to dance mode (purple).

This toy is really cute, and is great for cat and stuffed animal lovers. This toy can hang on your wrist or backpack. It reminds me of my cat Lizzie. Speaking of my cat, I think she made a new friend because she loved it! My mom also loves it. She said, “It was one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!”
