FurReal Friends Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet Review
Thanks to FurReal Friends for providing a complimentary Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet for review. I was not paid for this review. These are my own, honest opinions.
A Krazy review from Gone Klippin’ Krazy.
Do you have a daughter or granddaughter who has longed for a puppy? If you are not ready for the real thing, you can now introduce your daughter to her new best friend. The Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet is so cute and interactive anyone will fall in love. When I received the package I could not wait to open it and play with the cute puppy inside. However, I had to calm myself and wait for my granddaughter, Grace, to arrive so we could open it together. Telling you she was thrilled when she saw the Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet, is an understatement.
The Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet does everything it says on the packaging. This little pup sits, walks, barks, wags it tail and responds when you speak to it. Bonus – the FREE FurReal Friends app gives you more ways to play with the pup. The app lets you feed , wash and take photos with the pup. This toy will stimulate your child’s imagination. The kids also get a sense of what it is like to care for something else.
The age guide for the Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet is 4 years and up. I can confidently say a 2 1/2-year-old will enjoy this toy too! My 9-year-old niece stopped over the other day and guess what is going on her Christmas list? You got it, she wants a Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet too. Both girls had a lot of fun playing with this toy. A toy like this can truly span a range of years. Who doesn’t love a new best friend?
You can take this pup for a walk using the easy push button on the controller of the leash. Grace is able to push the button and walk with the pup. If you keep the button pressed the pup will keep on going. When you stop Bella the pup sits, barks and wags her tail. Grace my granddaughter is young and rough with her toys. I was a little worried of the wear and tear she would put on a toy like this. After playing with this for the last 3 weeks I can confidently state it can handle some abuse. The poor little puppy, Bella, has been dropped, dragged and hugged very tightly over the last few weeks. Our Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet has been named and made a part of the family for better or worse. Grace has dragged the dog by the connecting cord and it has held up great.
The Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet requires 4 DD batteries. We have spent many hours playing with Bella and she has not shown any signs of running out of energy yet. There is not a big drain on the batteries and we turn it off when Grace is not here. The FREE FurReal Friends app is an added bonus for more ways to play. You can get the app at the Apple App Store or Google play.
There was no assembly required for this toy. All I had to do was open the box and remove our pup. I then installed the batteries and we were ready to play.
The Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet is priced at $59.99. While that is definitely a higher price range for toys I feel it is worth it. The value of a toy comes from enjoyment and involvement. Grace has kept herself occupied with Bella for long periods of time. Now when Grace comes over to Nanas her first words are “Where is my puppy? I have to find her”. Three weeks later Grace is still focused on playing with her puppy. Her joy is priceless!
I would rate the Get Up & GOGO, My Walkin’ Pup Pet an 8. We really have enjoyed the product and the ease of use. The puppy has kept my granddaughter entertained and intrigued for hours. The toy is durable and can handle some tumbles. The price is a little steep but the toy is still a good value. We are always looking for sales, so keep your eyes open for a way to save on this product between now and Christmas. If you see a sale I would jump on it!
You can buy this toy at hasbrotoyshop.com , Target, Walmart, Kmart and more.
