4.5 Broken brokenpets | 27/11/2009 | See all brokenpets's reviews (1) Bought 2 of these one for each daughter. Both have now broken after the gearing failed. one lasted about a week and the other was luckier lasting about 6 weeks. They still talk but are paralysed. Kids love them and keep playing with them so 5/5, but 1/5 for the mechanics.
