Do your kids love pets? I know mine do! They seem to constantly be asking for a new puppy or kitten, even though we have 3 itty-bitty lap dogs and 4 cats! Sadly, the zoo is CLOSED. No more pets here. Not for a very, very long time!
Luckily, when the kiddos get to yearning for a new furry friend, all I have to do is break out their FurReal Friends toys. This line of fun, interactive "pets" from Hasbro is truly the next best thing to having a new pet in the household. Minus the chewed-up shoes and stepping on poop accidents in the middle of the night, of course!
Recently, we got to check out the FurReal Friends Happy to See Me Pets My Bouncin' Pup. (Try saying that 5 times fast!) This pup is absolutely precious. He bounces, spins and barks, and even responds to being petted.
The kids named their pup Bruno. No surprise there, since Mommy is more than a little obsessed with Bruno Mars. I'm still trying to figure out who's cuter, Bruno the pup or Bruno the man....Hmm...The jury is still out on that one. I am pretty sure the kids will say that their My Bouncin' Pup is undoubtedly cuter. You see, they are too young to fully understand the awesomeness that is Bruno Mars. I have to admit, though....This cute little face and soft fur is pretty darn endearing! Wouldn't you agree?
Sophie and Xander loved their FurReal Friends Happy to See Me My Bouncin' Pup before he was turned on. They liked carrying him around and petting him. Imagine their surprise when I turned him on and brought him to life!
This great toy acts much like a real puppy. When you pet it, this pup barks, spins, and nods its head with excitement. It's so incredibly cute!
Of course once Bruno was brought to life, our real dog, Trouble, just had to come investigate. She seemed very interested in seeing who the new canine competition was. Trouble came over and sat down with Bruno, sniffing and licking his face.....
And the barking must have fooled our usually smart Yorkie. She then decided to engage in some investigative butt-sniffing as well. I admit, I was laughing like crazy watching my Trouble get so confused by our FurReal Friends pal!
Overall, the whole family is loving our new pal. This pup is so much fun for little ones, and really does mimic the behaviors of real puppies. I love seeing my babies squeal with delight as Bruno spins and barks. He's quickly become one of their go-to toys. The only problem? The fighting. Sophie and Xander, being 3 and 4 years old, have trouble sharing at times. That's okay, though. It just means I will have to "adopt" another furry friend from the FurReal Friends line so there's enough puppy love to go around. Choosing from all the adorable pals will be a challenge, since they're all so cute and cuddly!
