Most kids want a dog at some point during their childhood. However, for many families a living, breathing (pooping!) animal just isn’t an option. For the younger kids especially, FurReal Friends Biscuit My Lovin Pup might just be the answer.
This cute, plush animal is a newcomer to the FurReal Friends product line of toy pets. It is fully interactive and is ready to entertain your child for hours straight out of the box. Biscuit comes with a collar, tag, brush, dog bone and adoption certificate. He comes programmed with behaviors such as nods, whimpers, barks and tail wagging – all of which are very realistic.
And just like a real dog, Biscuit is able to recognize your child’s voice and execute six commands that include speak, sit and lie down. Undoubtedly the cutest trick this very smart pooch is able to perform is to shake hands on command. And when he sits up and begs, it is sure to melt even the coldest of hearts.
A Few Considerations
There is no doubt that Fur Real Friends Biscuit is an appealing toy with pleading eyes and a coat that is soft to the touch. At nearly two feet in height, this oversized plush toy may be difficult for smaller children to carry around. Most small children can still enjoy having Biscuit as a pet, but you should be prepared to do most of the moving of Biscuit for your child. Biscuit also requires 6 D batteries, which you will need to remember to pick up since they are not included in the box.
Biscuit’s Innovative Technology
Biscuit has nine sensors that help him to interact with your child based on touch, movement and voice. Touching his left paw will cause him to raise it and shake hands. If he hears the command to speak, Biscuit will give a realistic bark in response. And if something is waved in front of the sensor in his forehead, he will respond by flinching, sneezing or blinking.
Biscuit My Lovin Pup will choose various interaction modes based upon how much interaction he is receiving. After a short while of not being interacted with, Biscuit enters “hangout” mode where he will do some cute behaviors to try to grab your attention. If he doesn’t receive some attention for a determined amount of time, he will next lay down and go to sleep.
With his sophisticated sensors and realistic behaviors, it’s easy to understand why Biscuit is widely recognized as the most innovative toy of the year. With both sounds and movements that are true-to-life, FurReal Friends Biscuit My Lovin Pup is sure to become your child’s new best friend.
