What if you can have a puppy who you can take for a walk but don’t have to walk with a doggy bag? Wouldn’t you just love that?! Mommy has decided that we are not getting any more pets but there is such a great alternative. Introducing FurReal Friends. My sister actually owned one of these when she was younger and I got two of them last year and they are still perfect! That just shows how awesome these are and how well made. Well imagine my joy when I was told that I was getting the new FurReal Friends Get Up & GoGo My Walkin’ Pup. While I love my Gizmo, there are things that I can’t do with him since he’s real. This FurReal friend is just like the real thing but without the hassle of the day to day care.
Before I go into the features of Get Up & GoGo My Walkin Pup there are a few things that I want to tell you about packaging for example. She is super easy to take out of the package but she is not a take out and play toy. She needed 4C batteries that mommy did not have which is why it took a while for this review to go live. Every time mommy would go to the store and each time she forgot to pick them up. So be sure that if you are getting this toy for your little one that you have your batteries on hand. You don’t want to be that parent on Christmas Day with a brand new toy that can’t be played with.
Now Get & GoGo My Walkin’ Pup is a totally interactive toy. While she is recommended for ages 4+ she can be used with a much younger child with supervision. She is a totally sweet puppy that loves to go for walks and comes with a remote control leash. The leash is small enough for little hands to hold and easy to use. Simply press the button on her leash controller and watch her go. Press and hold the button and she’ll keep on walking with you.
Now to make her look even more realistic, she comes complete with a collar that you can personalize if you want to. It has the FurReal Friends logo and made of plastic but is not removable. My own Gizmo has his collar that has our phone number and his tags if he ever gets lost. You would not want to lose your FurReal Friends pet.
Now you may be wondering, how exactly does Get Up & GoGo My Walkin’ Pup walk? He has wheels on the bottom so he can move easily on carpets, wooden floors and solid pavements. He doesn’t really do well on grass or gravel.
She’s so adorable with her poseable head and wagging tail, you may want to take her everywhere you go! She walks, wags her tail, sits and even tilts her head just like a real puppy. She even responds with barks when you talk to her. When you pet her head, she’ll sit for you and when you talk to her she’ll talk back to you in her sweet puppy talk.
She can even talk back and forth with her other FurReal Friends if you have them, Pom Pom and My Baby Panda.
There are many different ways to have fun playing with Get Up & GoGo, My Walkin’ Pup. You can even play games with her through the free FurReal Friends app. She’ll respond to the many activities in adorable ways!
There are 6 fun activities that you can play on the app. You can feed GoGo on the app and she lets you know what she likes and doesn’t like, play fetch, give her a bath and even a make over. You can also play hide and seek and FurReal Friends Band in which you get to meet 7 other FurReal Friends pets. They even perform for you in the band.
I really enjoy playing with Get Up & GoGo and I have taken him for a few walks just like a real puppy. We have been having really nice weather and I can picture taking GoGo while we go Trick or Treating this Halloween. Since she’s white she’ll help with visibility as well.
Check out the FurReal Friends Get Up & GoGo My Walkin’ Pup commercial. After seeing this I’m sure you’re going to want to go out and get your very own.
I really enjoy the FurReal Friends Get Up & GoGo My Walkin’ Pup. Not only am I able to take her for a walk without the doggie bag but it’s great exercise for me. It also teaches responsibility without being too responsible. It’s a great way to teach your kids how to take care of a puppy while you decide also if a puppy would be right for the family. Retailing at $59.99 Get Up and GoGo My Walkin Pup would make any little one in your household very happy. She certainly gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
