My youngest son is always asking for a puppy but being 4 years old they don’t have a clue how hard it really is to take care of a puppy- not to mention expensive. I have 4 kids to take care getting a new dog right now isn’t what I want to focus on. Learning Resources has a new toy that teaches young kids about the responsibilities for caring for pets. New Sprouts Puppy Play helps build early vocabulary and social skills; also imaginative play skills. He/she is great for developing role play. My son named his puppy “Peppy” and he is a boy. Him and my 1 year old daughter sit in the living room and play with him, brush his fur, feed him treats and cuddle him.
New Sprouts Puppy Play comes with:
- Food Bowl
- Dog Bed
- Can of Dog Food
- 6″ Plush Dog
Caiden love to brush Peppy and he has a bone ready for him for being such a good boy!
Here is Caiden feeding Peppy his bone. My one year old just realized there is a brush sitting on the floor. She likes to brush her own hair and used it for a while to brush her hair and threw a few fits when we tried to show her that it was for the puppy not for her hair (lol). Finally we just gave up.
We finally got her to notice the puppy push. Which it took like 10 minutes- weird because she LOVES anything stuffed animal related. All we have to say is “awww” and she hugs it and the picture I happened to get he was upside down lol.
I am really pleased with this toy. The quality of the plastic is durable. I worried about the little one chewing on the can of dog food and chewing it the edges up but even though she got a hold of it, it didn’t make a dent. This toy is reccomended for ages 2+.
