Have you ever really wanted a dog but not the responsibility of owning a dog? Well we have the answer to this with this lovely children’s toy review. My two daughters who are 6 and 4 years old absolutely love interactive toys so we were super excited about this. Now we have a new pet!
*Disclaimer – We were gifted this toy for review purposes, opinions are our own*
We were very kindly sent Bailey,a Kooky Critter who is a playful interactive puppy. He’s absolutely lovely and full of character with his cartoon like features, googly eyes, cute flappy ears and a pokey out tongue.
Whats in the box? 1 x Playful Bailey, 1 x disappearing eating bowl, 3 x food accessories, 1 x magnetic bone, 1 x magnetic pull toy and 1 x drinking bowl. Everything a little one needs to look after their new pup! He requires 2 x AA batteries which are included in the toy. Simply switch him on under his bottom and he comes to life.
What we love about Playful Bailey is how much like a real life pup he is, he moves around, responds to different actions and has 30+ pup sounds. Boop him on the nose (which is also a microphone) and he responds, you can also talk to him and he will giggle or blow you a kiss. The girls thought this was hilarious and there were lots of giggles.
He also likes to be patted on the head much like a real life pup and he starts panting and sticking out his tongue. He is a jumpy little thing and moves around so much. He can be fed with his disappearing food bowl, play tug of war with his toy and walk around with his bone in his mouth, which needs to be placed in his mouth dimple side up. Bailey has sticky feet so he works best on a smooth surface although we did find he worked great on carpet too.
He has 2 positions and can sit up to beg if you push his tail down and his two front paws will pop up! He even makes cute begging noises. He lets you know when he’s had enough food although if you put his bowl near him he will go for some more. Much like any pup he loves a good nap and if you lay him belly side up in your hands he will fall asleep which is adorable.
Bailey is suitable for children aged 3+, I mentioned earlier my girls are aged 4 and 6 and they absolutely adore him! I think this toy would make a really wonderful Christmas or birthday gift for little ones and they will really enjoy how interactive he is to play with. Kooky Critters Playful Bailey is available here from Smyth Toys Superstores RRP £24.99 which I think is a decent price for a toy that will give hours and hours of fun.
