Katita (The Hero) - Jumpy Bumpy Wind-Up Action Toy
Description by Chico: "Katita was named after a female mutt in Rio who had just given birth to a litter of six puppies. She became a national hero in Brazil for having saved the life of a three-year-old boy that was being mauled by two vicious pit bulls. She was very badly hurt after fending off the beasts, but survived. This product is homage to Katita's courage.

***Note: Feet and key colors are assorted, we pick color based on availability.
To wind up Katita, hold it in one hand, keeping the counterweight from spinning, while turning the key with the other hand. Katita works best when all four booties touch the ground approximately 2 3/4" (7 cm) from each other forming a square (from toe to toe). If the legs become loose, the tabs holding the legs to the body may be pinched with a pair of pliers. When the legs are tight, Katita gets jumpier and even more courageous."
