What We Like About Little Live Pets Snuggles My Dream Puppy
Mechanical pets continue to gain popularity as the solution for children who want their make believe friends to come alive. Robotic pets have increasingly become more realistic in their movements and sounds, delighting and entertaining children for hours.
There are several reasons why children gravitate toward stuffed, mechanical toys. They enjoy having a play friend they can talk to and that responds to their touch. It satisfies an urge to nurture friendships.
Toy pets are therapeutic. Children aren’t always able to communicate their thoughts with adults. They have doubts about their feelings and how to express them. Snuggles My Dream Puppy gives them the assurance that no matter how they feel, their play friend loves and accepts them.
The on-off switch is built into the paw, giving it a more seamless look as a stuffed toy. The open and close eyes are large and bright blue, with a whimsical, tongue-hanging-out smile on the face. The toy is designed to create and illicit a quick response to affection, which is beneficial to a child’s growth. It’s also a great sleep aid for children who feel the need for extra security at night.
What Little Live Pet Owners are Saying
Parents are delighted with the way Snuggles My Dream Puppy responds to the cuddling of their new owners. They state you can even see the dream puppy breathing as the child goes to sleep. Its small size and plush fur makes it look and feel very much like a puppy. Feeding the pet satisfies their urge to nurture, and the response gives them confidence in their care-taking abilities.
They state you can hear a slight mechanical noise, and you can feel the hard mechanical body if you push down on the plush exterior, but neither of these things bother the child’s happiness with the toy. They advise stocking up on rechargeable batteries because the chances are good the child is into her Dream Puppy for the long run.

It can be very satisfying for small children who desire a pet, and a healthy outlet for imaginary play.
