~ Thank you to TOMY for providing product samples in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are strictly my own! ~
I don’t think I’ve ever met a child who wasn’t excited at the sight of a puppy. To be honest every time I lay eyes on one I turn to mush — awweee they’re SO cute!
But of course with pets comes responsibility and young children are not equipped to provide proper care for one. Not every family is able to take one home either (if they’re renting or have allergies) and so, that’s why I’m excited to share with you the newest addition to the John Deere toy line up — the Whistle & Go Puppy created by TOMY.
This adorable little brown and white spotted pup is ready to spring into action whenever you “call” him.
The name says it all. To get the puppy to come just simply blow into the included whistle and he runs forward. If you want him to back up just give the whistle two simultaneous blows and he turns in a circle and waits to go the other way.
As he’s running his ears start flapping to show his excitement. He’s SO cute!
If your child isn’t yet ready for the real thing, you’ve got to check out the Whistle & Go Puppy. He’s always looking for a new friend who’s 2 years of age or older. And he doesn’t require food, water or bathroom breaks. Nor does he make any messes. Well, unless you accidentally run him into something that spills. hehee!
The Whistle & Go Puppy is ran remote control style and requires 2 AA batteries (not included).
As long as you keep your whistle in a safe place, this pup is sure to be with your child a long, long time.
Something else that’s new to the John Deere preschool toy lineup is the First Animals Puzzle — also created by TOMY.
Children ages 12 months and up can easily spin the puzzle pieces to create 3 easy to recognize farm animals (1 dog, 2 horses & 3 pigs) and corresponding numbers for each picture. Plus, it contains 2 handles (one on each side) making gripping the toy super simple. It’s the perfect size for small hands!
The First Animals Puzzle is made of safe, durable plastic and measures 8.5″ x 6.25″ x 1.75″.
This toy is the perfect companion for car rides since it’s so portable!
