When I was a child, we had different kinds of pets. We owned a dog, several cats, canaries, a big aquarium with colourful fish, hamsters and even bunnies in our backyard. I loved playing with our pets, caring for them, feeding them and watching them grow. I always felt so lucky for having pets living with us at our home.
Even now, my parents own a dog and a couple of cats. My kids get so excited when we visit my parents and can easily spend hours playing with the pets. Whenever we go home, they keep posing all possible questions of why we don’t have pets of our own. Moreover, they keep suggesting solutions for the arguments I use to explain how our lifestyle doesn’t allow us to have our own pets at the moment.
Last week we received the Puppy Surprise to review, and it was a big surprise for my daughter. Not only because she loves dogs and always wanted to have one of her own, but also because this mummy dog has a number of cute puppies in her pouch. And the exact number of puppies is another surprise! She is a stuffed toy lover, animal lover and very much interested in mums and babies. She won’t let any pregnant woman pass by without commenting that she has a baby in her tummy. So when she saw the Puppy Surprise she smiled, actually she laughed and happily hugged the Puppy. After a few minutes she discovered that the mummy dog has the cutest puppies in her pouch. She pulls one, two and three! And gets so excited to play with them all. Actually, one of the small puppies barks, with the cutest voice a tiny puppy could have!
My daughter was so happy as if her wish to own a dog came true. And this was such a relief for me as I felt that it was kind of a compromise for not getting her a real dog.
Mummy dog and its puppies became our new companions. After brushing the hair and the tail of mummy dog every morning, they all join us everywhere we go. To make sure puppies do not get lost, my daughter carefully hides them in mummy dog’s pouch.
Each of these puppies not only has a different colour but also a unique name which my daughter expects me to recall correctly when referring to it!
Puppy Surprise is suitable for 3 – 6 years old. I reviewed wave 5 of Puppy Surprise, however, wave 8 is already available to order which includes four new puppies called Eliza, Lexi, Chloe and Stacey. If you wish to order a Puppy Surprise or refill puppy packs, please check here and here.
