FurReal Friends Pax, My Poopin' Pup is a winner!
I'll admit it, the child in me still finds poop and fart jokes funny and this pooping puppy made me laugh. Included in the package is Pax a tan colored cute puppy, 9 doggie treats/poops, a leash, instructions and clear up bags. To operate you need two AAA batteries - some customers who have purchased this say it came with batteries and some said without. We'd suggest have a pack in hand to save any disappointment.
At the time of writing, Pax retails at $24.99 but it is best to check Amazon for the latest price.
The manufacturers, Hasbro, recommend ages 4 and over for this . It certainly isn't a toy for younger children as the poop pellets could easily become a choking hazard.
We'd say 4-8 would be a good age range for this toy as older children would soon get bored with it. It is suitable for boys or girls who like animals and pets.
It poops and farts what more is there to like about it!
The noises Pax makes, will make you and your kids laugh.
There is actually some real value in this toy in that it teaches children about responsibility and looking after a dog and the environment. Saying that I think my little girl is more inclined to clear up little plastic poops than our real dog's, real world versions!
We liked the leash which is firm and can be used to push the puppy along.
The poops/treats are the sort of color you'd expect treats and poops to be.
The main reservation we have is how long before the little puppy treats start going missing. They are small and easy to lose. This also could result in other treats being inserted into Pax that might not come out the other end resulting in a constipated Pax and maybe major surgery!
If you do lose all your treats it is probably worth contacting Hasbro for replacements.
The puppy can only be surface washed with a damp cloth or brush as it will not work if it gets wet so this might be an issue for some parents.
We were actually surprised that it was so cheap as these types of toys are often highly priced, but twenty five bucks is a good price to pay for this.
All the big online stores that stock toys will be selling this pooping dog. We have checked on Amazon and it is available there and you can read the so far very positive user reviews as well.
This makes an excellent holiday gift for a child 4 and up.
Great entertainment, and kids will love it while moms, dads and grandparents will be secretly sniggering as well. Older kids might get bored with it fairly quickly but younger kids will get a lot of creative play time out of it.
It's reasonably priced for what you get but just make sure that you keep track of those little poops!
