My daughter had begged for a barking puppy for her 6th birthday for some time. No brand specified - her only requirements were that it be white and bark. I thought this pup would charm and entertain her because of the doctor's kit and noises the puppy makes (she loves to nurse/doctor her toys). It did for the first two days. In fact she carried it everywhere we went shopping on the second day in the cute little bag (which I really like for keeping accessories in one place). After that she'll sometimes sleep with the pup with noises turned off, but she no longer "doctors" the pup. However, our two year old loves it. It might just be more suitable for a younger crowd, possible aages 3 to 5.
The reason I gave it 4 stars is not due to my daughter's disinterest, but due to the electronics of the toy. The nose blowing and mouth suckling noise triggers are very close together, and the toy does not differentiate between bone, bottle, hanky, etc. Kind of takes some charm out of it when you hold a bone to the mouth a smidge too close to the nose, and the dog "blows" its nose onto the bone or bottle. It didn't work for us, but the toy seems pretty good overall and would be great for another child.
First of all, some pieces were missing. The toy did not come with a stethoscope, Rx pad or birth certificate as indicated in the description as well as on the tag that was attached to the toy.
Secondly, the dog does not 'interact' as I assumed it would. When you press her paw or tummy, she makes various barking, whining, sneezing, chewing noises, and at one point, Barbie's voice is heard asking for help caring for the dog. This is all good. However, when you use the tissue, bone or bottle by holding the items up to the dog's face(they are magnetized), nothing happens. Nothing. This is disappointing because I expected the dog to do certain things- ie: sneeze with the tissue/make eating noises with the bottle and bone.
The dog is super cute as is the bag it came in, and the 5 year old who received it seemed pleased. Had I known that the dog did not interact with you, and that there would be missing pieces, I would have returned it. I kept this item in spite of the disappointments because it was purchased as a gift and I needed it very soon. I did remove the tag that listed the included items- because they were not included!
I'm only giving it 4 stars because the stethoscope tubing feels very cheap and like it could easily fall off and the space between the stethoscope ear pieces isn't wide enough so it hurts her to put them in her ears - she just puts it around her neck instead. Also, because the mouth and nose magnets are so close, sometimes they get mixed up and it makes slurping noises when we are trying to wipe its nose and vice versa.
But my aspiring little vet loves it and we highly recommend it!
