Like children, some birds are just dying to learn, and they'll learn to talk from someone so it's best that you help them learn with the Prevue Pet Products Mimic Me Voice-Recording Unit instead of letting them learn from those delinquent street-parrots. This simple toy allows you to record your own voice which your bird can listen to over and over as they learn to mimic the words and tonal inflections. Simply record your message and press Play - the recording will play back your words, phrases or brief songs (up to 10 seconds long) in one of two repetition modes. Messages can be different for either of the two modes and can be recorded over repeatedly. The more language that birds are exposed to, the more they learn, so help give them the attention and stimulation that they crave with this innovative and easy-to-use toy.
