Present Pets are really into the whole “present” thing and like to make a big deal out of the unwrapping. The experience involves working towards the big reveal with multiple layers of paper that build excitement and anticipation, leading to the paper pet dog houses where the surprise pups are hidden. It’s all very well designed and delivers the good when it comes to turning the experience into something special. Once you get to the dog houses, you will discover directions explaining which tabs to pull in order for the dogs to pop out of their boxes. There are three cute, soft mini pups, each a different breed. Our review sets often included a poodle, spaniel, and chihuahua. Each had its own “not found in nature” color pattern from pink to purple to floral designs, and the tails and ear hair are fluffy with adorable bows. The whole experience does a great job of drawing kids into the world of Present Pets, which are, not surprisingly, collectible. The appealing design encourages a nice level of creative play. There aren’t any sound effects or lights, or battery-powered movements. It is the design of each dog that appeared to spark our children tester’s imaginations. The paper dog houses that they arrive in remain part of the experience and expand the options for creative play. The biggest issue our testers had was the price which they felt was unusually high. That could be an issue for some and might not be for you if you are stretching your toy dollars.
