You may have seen a previous review we did on the wonderful Scruff A Luvs and we are super pleased to be able to reveal to you more adorable pets for your child to now be able to rescue.
We was sent a lovely bundle of Scruff a Luvs which included 2 Babies, 2 New Spring edition babies, 1 Friends Scruff a Luvs and one Jungle Scruff a Luvs.
They are all brand new and Lily and I was super excited to find out what cute animals they were to be.
All the Scruff a Luvs are secret and you don't know who you are going to get until you open them up.
The larger boxes, you still don't know who you are going to get until you do the job of giving your scruff a luvs a good bath. They come in matted balls that feel hard, they don't feel like a teddy at all. To reveal who you have got you need to bath them in water and it will soften and you will soon be able to see who you have got. In the Friends pack, you could get a dog, cat or pony. In the jungle pack you could get a Lion, Parrot or Monkey. The Jungle set also comes wrapped in pretend leaves which you also have to remove. I love the idea of the jungle friends because its just like saving the animals that live in the jungle.
Both of them also came with a comb and a hair clip. The Scruff a Luvs Friends also had a collar which you are able to write the name of the pet on after.
The fun part of this toy has to be the washing stage. We filled up a sink of water and also used to shampoo to wash the fur. Soon they both opened up, and became soft and more plush like. From the Friends collection we got a cute dog, it was pink and purple and super sweet. From the Jungle collection we got a monkey which was green and pink and also super cute.
The idea behind the pets is that you need to wash them, groom them and take care of them to make them go from scruffy to fluffy. After a good shampoo and condition, we gave them a good rinse with cold water and then it was time to get them dried.
First we gave them a good dry with a towel, and then we used a hair drier to blast them dry. We did spend a good 20 min trying to dry them, but in the end they needed to go on the radiator to dry over night. So make sure your child knows they probably won't have their new pet to cuddle that night.
After giving them a good dry you then need to give them a good brush, and attach their collar and the head clips and they are then ready to be cared for for life.
Lily loved the new babies that were sent. They came in a cute little hutch like box which you can keep your babies in after they are washed.
Again you don't know which one you are going to get until you open up the boxes. In the babies there are 21 different pets you could get and in the special edition spring babies you could get a Chick, Lamb or a bunny.
Lily got a cute bunny and a chick in her spring editions and she got a kitten and puppy in the normal baby packs.
The babies fur isn't as matted as the big ones and they don't come in a ball like the bigger scruff a luvs do, but you can still give them a wash which is Lily's favourite part.
Another cute thing about them is that they come with a dummy in. What we didn't realise though is that when you have removed the dummy it doesn't go back on, so if this is a feature about the babies that your child likes, then don't remove the dummy. They also come with a little brush.
Lily took care of her babies and cleaned them up until they were all fluffy again. They also come on little key rings which you can also attach to their little homes.
Another feature of all the scruff a luvs is that they all come with adoption certificates which you can name you new pet on and sign to say you have adopted them. This is a really cute edition to the pets.
Lily was super happy with her new pets and she plans to love them forever.
You can buy Scruff a Luvs from most toy stores and if you buy a Friends Scruff a Luvs then a percentage of that sale goes towards the RCPCA which is great to know your also helping real animals.
