Looking for a Rocky Raccoon by magic masters?
Sadly they are discontinued and you will struggle to even find a second hand one these days.
However FEAR NOT! Magicbox has spent months developing a suitable replacement that works just as well, if not better than a Rocky.
We tried many versions from China, Ebay and other manufacturers and none were any good. We do like the Super Robbie Raccoon from Magic Makers in the USA (which has been out of stock for over 12 months and may not even be re-made) but although it looked very close to an original it didnt handle as well as the fur/skin was too thick.
So we decided to have one custom made. Not only does it handle really well, its far cheaper and DOES NOT use real fur. This Raccoon has synthetic fur. Yes OK, the fur doesn’t look exactly the same as the original with real fur and its not as soft. However it will wear better and you know its not real fur so you can have a clear conscious.
We have photo graphed an original and our version as we want to be completely transparent here. We are not claiming these to be exactly the same as the original. Our version is slightly smaller than the original by about half an inch (see photo for comparison) but whats half an inch among friends? The face is slightly different but other than that its good!
- It handles REALLY well, in fact in our opinion, BETTER than the original. This is because we made sure the spring was the right gauge (thickness). This also means that it will last a lot longer.
- Its CHEAPER than most other versions. Yes you will find cheaper ones on Ebay, but no where near as good. The original (last sold) was around £60, Super Robbie from Magic Makers was £45, ours is ONLY £25!
- Has fake fur (100% synthetic fur)
- You can not get an original anyway!
This little life-like, spring animal can build a reputation for you in an instant! He eats out of your hands, sits up, nods “Yes” or “No,” and jumps out of your hands. He even “Boogies”! Super simple to operate…
The key to making Derek come alive is all about your handling. Derek will eat from your hand, scurry up your body, kiss on the cheek, bite your finger, dance around and more!
