Puppy Surprise Review

Although Lily is actually scared of dogs, she really loves toy ones. Im really hoping that her playing with toy ones will help her overcome her fear. So when I got the chance to review Puppy Surprise from Flair I jumped at it. 

Puppy Surprise is a soft loveable, huggable mummy dog that has a surprise number of puppies in her tummy. 

It comes in a delightful shaped box that looks just like a pet carrier. Lily was really excited to see the dog in the box and also that it had a cute little puppy sat by its side. She spotted the hole in the box and pressed the puppy and it makes cute little barking noises. 



Its really easy to remove from the box and so Lily had the dog in her arms in no time. She gave it really big hugs and said "so cute" when she held the puppy in her hands. She was delighted with her new toy and fell in love with the dog and her puppy straight away. Little did she know that there was a very special surprise to come. 

The mummy dog is really cuddly and her white fur is really soft. She comes with a really attractive pink sparkly dog collar and and a pretty bow in her hair. The purple hair is made so it is brushable. Although no brush is supplied with the toy. That was not a major problem for us as we have already got toy brushes that Lily can use. The mummy dog has a really sparkly nose too which Lily loved. The puppy has a really silky soft body and a hard head. It is really easy to press its belly and make it bark which is a great factor for small children with not much strength to do so. 



I then asked Lily if she would like some more puppies? She got excited and said yes and looked around for them. I said to her that they were in the mummies belly and turned the doggy over to reveal a opening which is fastened by velcro. Lily soon got the idea that she could open the dog up and she started to pull out puppies. She was so excited that there was more than one in there and started to count them and was shocked saying "oh theres more". Each puppy surprise comes with a different amount of puppies. There may be 3 in there or 4 or even 5. We got 3 puppies inside our doggy which made 4 with the one that was already out of the tummy.




Lily has loved playing with this dog and her puppies. Some toys Lily plays with to begin with and then doesn't touch for a while but she has not let go of this since we received it. She has been taking such good care of her dog and puppies and it has been really good for encouraging her to learn how to nurture. You can buy refill puppy packs which also come with a surprise element and this is something I may consider due to Lily loving this toy so much. Its great that you can expand on this toy by buying more puppies. 

The target age for this toy is 3-6. Lily is only 2 and a half but I find this toy perfect for her age. I would highly recommend this toy as something your child will love and treasure. It retails at £27.99 and you can buy it from Smyths Toy Store.  We were sent a doggy from series 5 of the Puppy Surpise Collection but series 8 is now out and available.

  1. There are various aspects :- It being a dog. He loves dogs. It being cuddly. The pups would also be fun and exciting for him. Would probably leads to discussions on dogs and pups. As relatives who are animals lovers, used to having pet/s and years ago bred dogs.
