There’s no better day than National Pet Day to give that special creature in your life a big hug, and Yahoo Entertainment has your first look at some additional pets you’ll want to welcome into your home. We’re premiering exclusive images of JustPlay’s toy line for The Secret Life of Pets 2. Due in theaters on June 7, the sequel to 2016’s animated hit features all your favorite returning pets — including Max (with Patton Oswalt replacing Louis C.K.), Gidget (Jenny Slate) and Snowball (Kevin Hart) — along with some new furry friends. Scroll down to see JustPlay’s menagerie of pet toys, all of which will be available at Walmart at the end of May.
Small Plush ($9.99 each)
Apart from the voice change, Max still looks like his adorable Secret Life of Pets self in plush form, as does his galpal, Gidget. Snowball, on the other hand, underwent a bit of a makeover between movies. He’s now going by the super-cute supehero name, Captain Snowball, and has the soft costume to match his soft fur. New to the crew is Hu, a circus tiger who Snowball... um, make that Captain Snowball is tasked with helping escape from the big top.
Meow Meow Gidget ($19.99)
With her spirited attitude and distinctive voice, Gidget tends to stand out in a crowd. But The Secret Life of Pets 2 will require her to go into stealth mode as a feline spy. Put the included pair of cat ears over her noggin, and Gidget ditches her yips and yaps for purrs and meows.
Chat & Hang Plush Pals ($9.99 each)
Leave the leash at home when you take these plush pets out and about. These 5” figures of Gidget, Captain Snowball and Max (sold separately) handily clip onto backpacks or clothing, and a simple squeeze rewards you with adorable pet sounds.
Movin’ & Chat Max ($24.99)
Don’t ever get between a Jack Russell Terrier and his Busy Bee! The black-and-yellow insect is Max’s favorite toy, and when you place it in his mouth, he’ll do a doggy dance of joy. Take it away, though, and he’ll beg (politely) for its return. In other words, it pays to “bee” kind to Max.
Deluxe Pet Collection ($24.99)
Collect the entire animal cast of The Secret Life of Pets 2 in one handy package. Max, Gidget and Duke are joined by new pets Hu, Daisy (Tiffany Haddish) and Rooster (Harrison Ford).
Mini Collectible Pets ($3.99 each)
Just like turtles, these mini-pets travel with their own homes. Collect each one and you’ll be able to create an entire apartment building out of the individual capsules.
Squeezable Pets Plush ($7.99 each)
Palm-sized and ultra-stretchy, these plush pets will instantly become your kids’ main squeeze. Play as “ruff” with them as you want — they’ll always bounce back.
