Old Friends

 

My mom is cleaning out her basement, so when I was visiting at Thanksgiving, she had me look through some boxes she is storing for me. And lo and behold, I found a box of my old friends: my Dancing Hamsters.

Dancing Hamsters were a genius invention that were on the scene in 2002 and 2003. My mom and I stumbled upon one in a Target and became hooked. They sing funny songs (e.g., Tom Jones, “It’s Not Unusual”; Styx, “Mr. Roboto”), move their arms, and are dressed in cute outfits.

My mom and I pulled all of them out of the box, and found that about half of them still worked! They’re battery operated. We had a great time playing them. I don’t have room to display all of them anymore, but I am going to bring back my favorite one, who sings “La Cucaracha,” after Christmas.
