Hi, guys... I don't understand the sentence colored with pink. Could you
explain what that means? Thank you.
BRAINY BIRD Chirpy-Chi ($25) is Tiger Electronics' latest attempt to build the
perfect robotic animal toy, and it's safe to say it's getting closer. When
called to action, the toy sings (up to 40 songs) and begs for its ear-of-corn
toy, which it "eats" with jabbing movements and excited warbles. Though a
successor to Furby and Poo-Chi, this plastic, squawking, nonspecific bird
doesn't exhibit the same annoyingly earnest cuteness. Even more important:
Chirpy-Chi goes to sleep in a hurry and doesn't wake up at every little sound.
The writer found the cuteness of the earlier models irritating- they were too obviously designed to be cute, while this one is not. It's s bird that isn't any paarticular species (non-specific). If a bird squawks, the noise it makes is not a song.
