At a Glance

Ages: 5 and up
Requires: 6 D batteries
Make a New Friend
This oversized plush puppy has a soft coat and glossy, pleading eyes, just like a real dog. Get ready to start interpreting three different barks and a whole range of movements that are playful and affectionate. With a real collar, a bone-shaped treat to share, and a brush for smoothing out his silky fur, Biscuit is ready to settle into your house. He'll quickly start wagging his tail and making happy puppy noises. An adoption certificate is included to make kids feel like real pet owners.

Before Biscuit is ready for a fun day with your child, an adult will need to use a Philips head screwdriver to install six "D" cell batteries (not included). The battery compartment is neatly hidden behind a Velcro closure on the pup's stomach.

Getting to Know Your Puppy
Nine sensors allow Biscuit to respond when you pet him or issue a voice command. Kids will enjoy the contented sounds he makes when they pet his back and the discovery that if they hold a hand on his back he will lay down, if he is sitting, or sit up, if he is already laying down. Sensors in his nose and mouth prompt him to sniff when his nose is petted or chomp on his treat. Touch his left paw, and he will raise it to shake. A unique photo sensor in Biscuit's forehead prompts him to flinch, blink, or sneeze when you wave something in front of him.

Take a peek at the back of the bone-shaped tag on his collar to see all the commands he knows. You can ask him to "sit," "lie down," or "speak." He even knows how to shake and will nod or move his paws in excitement when you ask, "Do you want a treat?" Like any voice recognition technology, Biscuit can be tricked by background noise or speech that is unclear. You may want to help younger children practice speaking the commands loudly, clearly, and distinctly, so they are not disappointed by his confusion.

Playing Options
Based on how much attention you are paying to him, Biscuit cycles through different modes. After a few moments of non-activation, Biscuit enters hangout mode. In this mode, he will move his head a little, whine, or bark to grab your attention. After a few minutes in hangout mode, he'll lay down and go to sleep. Thanks to his photo sensor, he will go to sleep faster in a darkened room. If the lights suddenly come on when he's been asleep in a dark room, he'll lift his head and make a mumbling noise.

While the noises he makes when moving betray his mechanical nature, this playful pup has an incredibly realistic look that is sure to have kids grooming him, offering him snacks, and engaging in imaginative play. With so many life-like responses and an irresistible puppy face, Biscuit really lived up to our expectations. His large size coupled with the weight of six "D" batteries could make it tricky for children to carry him around or travel with him, which means that when you head off on family adventures, he'll probably have to stay home, the same way a real dog often does.

What's in the Box
Plush pup, collar, tag, plastic brush, plastic bone, and adoption certificate.

Fur Real Friends Biscuit My Lovin Pup is a very fun robotic dog. Unlike most dogs, this one actually listens to you when you give a command, and that's without you having to offer it treat after treat! True, there are other robotic toys on the market that are less expensive. But this is the only toy that I've seen that actually comes close to acting like a real dog. Granted, it's not going to fool anybody, because it's obviously a mechanical toy. But it's real enough that kids will be able to play with it like a real dog. And kids who can't have a real dog because of allergies will appreciate the good things about Biscuit and probably ignore his flaws. It moves and reacts to your commands smoothly and it's pretty hard not to smile when you see it in action. That alone will be reason enough for many people to buy it this year.

The holidays make us buy some strange products. I like to research every gift I give, and test them where possible. If it's not as good as advertised I can return it and save the recipient the hassle of having to exchange it. This is one gift that is bound to please, particularly during those holiday parties where groups of kids are wrecking havoc on your home or searching for something to play with.

When the package first arrived, I was surprised by how large the box is. I thought there might be a lot of empty space, but the dog is sitting there staring blankly ahead when you open up the box. Clearly, that's another difference between biscuit and other toys I've seen: this dog is much bigger than any other robotic animal I know of.

Obviously, many kids want dogs and not all of them can have one.

"Biscuit" is an amazing robotic dog that does six tricks from your vocal commands and has seven 'touch sensitive' spots that do other fun things like, sniff, doggie-moan, bark, snuggle, etc. Perfect for the child (aged 5-8) that cannot have a real pet. There is a mechanical sound whenever he moves and I'm not sure he would survive a few drops down the stairwell, but he will certainly entertain any child for hours. The best way to go is to know your child's attention span for this kind of toy. But, "Biscuit" is still amazing.

I have had it with electronic pets - we have way too many. However, with that said, I think they finally got it right with the mechanics on this one. On some of the cheap fur real pets ((Fur Real Friends Teacup Pups - Yorkie) the mechanics are so noisy that they really detract from the realness. In this case, not too noisy. However, not exactly realistic either.

Here's what we like:
1) Lots of sensors - almost everywhere you touch makes him respond
2) Love the fact that he lifts his paw to shake - too cute
3) He makes just the right volume - he sounds pretty close to the real thing
4) He is not too bony
5) You could replace his collar and bone when they get lost with a real dog collar/toy - I can't see how they won't get lost, considering

Here's what we don't like:
1) He is not as cute out of the box. The eyes on the one we've played with aren't as open as the dog pictured (the fur covers them up quite a bit).
2) Also the mouth does not fully close, the teeth aren't as realistic as the dog I linked above, and his fur is really pretty cheap and obviously fake considering the nice stuffed toys with much more realistic fur we've picked up for very little money. Maybe they were trying to keep cost down.
3) His paws are hard plastic (bottoms). I think they could have covered them with rubber, which would have been more realistic and less likely to break.
4) Only 1 color and breed option (although, if you notice my pic, IMHO they picked the best!)
5) My 4 yo has a hard time speaking clearly (and slowly!) enough to reliably get him to follow commands.

It's a great and cute toy. It performs Like it's suppose to, but my daughter lost interest quickly. However, I think it's because we have two dogs. They are young dogs and always getting into something etc.. So, I think it is perfect for a child who wants a dog, but doesn't or can't have a real one.

I wish that the Fatal Flaw I found with this mechanized toy had been mentioned by someone, anyone!

It did all of the motions listed really cutely but all joy I found in it was drowned out by a very, very loud grinding mechanical sounds that literally wipe out the whines and softer noises he makes. The only sound louder than the annoying grind was his bark which sounded like it was on a cheap sound track and very artificial. I also would have liked to see a better quality fur on the pup. Extremely cheap covering that most likely will not hold up to repeated spot cleaning necessary for cleaning up after messy little hands.

Obviously, I am extremely disappointed and this little pup will be going back to the "pound" right away.
