FurReal Friends is a popular line of soft and cuddly, electronic animals that move and sound like the real thing. One interactive FurReal Friend is Butterscotch; an adorable pony that responds to your attention and care. This pony is over 3 feet tall and will respond to your interaction by blinking her eyes, moving her head and wiggling her ears. She can even move her tail, sniff your hand and whinny. Butterscotch is designed for children ages 4 and up and has a weight limit of 80 lbs. She even comes with her own adoption certificate, brush, halter and carrot.
Installing the Batteries
Turn the pony over and open the Velcro tabs on the belly. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the screw on the battery compartment.
Slide the compartment back, then remove it from the pony. Insert 6 D batteries according to the polarity guide inside the compartment.
Place the compartment back into the pony and slide it into the forward position, then tighten the screw.
Slide the "Power" switch to the "On" position then fasten the Velcro tabs.
Riding, Feeding and Playing with Butterscotch
Sit on your pony and watch as she responds to you. Butterscotch will move her head up and down, then blink her eyes, twitch her ears and make a soft snorting sound.
Wait for Butterscotch to stop moving before you start the "Riding" mode. Then use your hand and gently tap her hindquarters. She will make a walking sound and become animated; moving her eyes, ears and head. Tap her hindquarters again to continue riding her.
Place the tip of the carrot into the pony's mouth to feed her. She will open her mouth and begin to "eat" the carrot. You can also put other pretend foods in her mouth if you lose the carrot, or just want her to have a variety.
Feed her more than six times in a row and she will refuse the snack. Butterscotch will turn her head and shake it, letting you know she is full.
Play with Butterscotch and watch as she interacts with you. Pet her on her neck and shoulder and she will turn her head towards you and move it side to side. Pet her hindquarters and she will move her head, twitch her ears and whinny. Pat the muzzle and Butterscotch will lift her head and sniff. Continue to pet and play with your pony and she will respond to you.
Grooming and Caring For Butterscotch
Brush your pony's mane and tail with her special grooming brush.
Make a loud noise, or say her name and Butterscotch will twitch her ear and turn her head towards the sound.
Turn off the lights and watch as your pony becomes sleepy and takes a nap. Turn the lights back on and she will wake up; lifting her head and opening her eyes.
Ignore your pony and she will try to get your attention by blinking her eyes, twitching her ears and whinnying. If you do not show her attention, she will rest her eyes or go to sleep.
Use a soft brush to remove any loose dirt. Use a slightly damp, clean washcloth and rub the pony to remove any stains. Refrain from throwing, kicking or pushing your pony.
