Owleez – the new interactive Owl that you can teach how to fly

Charging-Owleez

Owls are my favourite type of bird and my love of them has definitely rubbed off on the kids.

Having an owl as a pet just isn’t an option sadly, so we have opted for the next best thing, teaching our very own baby owl how to fly.

Owleez is a new interactive toy, which is bound to be top of children’s Christmas lists for this year.

Owleez needs your help to learn how to fly and in the box is the owl, some berries and a nest.

In the Box

Setting Owleez up

Owleeze comes with a USB charger at the base of its nest.

Simply plug it in and wait for its eyes to change from flashing red to green. Ours took around 15 minutes on the first charge, so not a long wait at all.

Once Owleez is charged, you need to practice flying together by swinging and swooping the owl through the air, which results in it making triumphant and happy noises.

With enough practice, Owleez will be ready to fly and when they are ready, they let you know with rainbow flashing eyes and a little tune. Pop it back in its nest and it will attempt to fly……….the more you practice the better it gets, although when it fails you do have to comfort it.

Owleez eyes light up for different moods and respond to your touch.

  • White Eyes: Ready to Play
  • Yellow Eyes: I am Hungry – Feed me my berry food accessory
  • Blue Eyes: I am cold – Hold my forehead to warm me up
  • Red Eyes: I am sad – Pet my head
  • Green Eyes: I am gassy – pick me up and pat my back
  • Orange Eyes: I am dizzy – Pick me up and pat my back
  • Purple Eyes: I am singing – Swing me side to side to hear me sing
  • Pink Eyes: I love you – Pet my head
  • Rainbow Eyes: I am ready to fly – Put me in my nest and watch me fly

It is a very cute toy as it responds to your actions with cute sounds as you play, plus it will even sing and dance to its own beat. Once it has learned to fly, there is a button on the back to reset the Owleez, so you can train it again from scratch.

My only issue with it, is it take a long time to learn to fly, although the kids have outstanded me with their perseverance, and you need LOTS of clear space. Our house has a long but narrow front room and wherever I position the owl, it always crashes into furniture when it takes off. I have tried it on the bed, however, even with a solid book base to launch from, any slight angle and it won’t fly.

Owleez is available in pink and white, from all good toy shops priced at £49.99

    What a great Christmas present this would make, it’s that there’s something a bit more aimed at girls that you can fly as all the planes and drones seem more geared towards boys (not that it really matters) x

  14. What a fantastic Christmas Gift Idea this is! I know my daughter who loves owls would adore this and a great price for it too.

  15. Laura says:

    Remember when people went crazy for hatchimals? I reckon this will be just the same. It’s pretty cool though, my younger ones would love it
