Hasbro launches new FurReal pet for International Tiger Day

Hasbro has celebrated International Tiger Day with the launch of its latest addition to the FurReal Friends line, Tyler the Playful Tiger.

Taking place on Saturday 29th July, International Tiger Day is an annual celebration to raise awareness of tiger conservation and the importance of protecting their natural habitats. The Tiger is the largest of the world’s big cats but 97 per cent of all wild tigers have disappeared in the last century, with only around 3,000 left. 

The new plush toy from Hasbro features a coat of ultra-soft striped fur, a ferocious mouth full of teeth and a pair of bright green eyes. The interactive baby tiger also responds to touch and sound with lifelike movements and roars.
