Tips to consider before buying Puppy in my pocket toys

  • Be aware of the manufacturer’s recommended age. Puppy In My Pocket toys are designed for children ages four and older. However, the scooter is designed for ages five and up.
  • There are hundreds of different puppies available, as well as different animals like kitties, ponies, and jungle animals. Find out if your daughter wants a particular breed of puppy, if she wants puppies or newborns, or if she just wants any puppy.
  • Choose a play set that fits her personality. She might enjoy pretending to care for newborn puppies in the Hospital, or she might prefer hosting fashion shows with the Fashion Show.
  • One of the nice things about Puppy In My Pocket is that you can buy one set or multiple sets, depending on how your child wants to play. The more puppies and play sets you buy, however, the more imaginative your child’s play can be.
  •  Another fun use for the puppies is as pets for your child’s other dolls. For example, buy them as a pet for a Barbie or Bratz doll.
  •  If you’re buying a larger play set, make sure it folds for easy storage. Also look for a carry handle for transporting the set.
  • Some of the puppies are only available in an exclusive play set. If your child has her heart set on one of these animals but you don’t want to buy the play set, you may be able to find the puppies separately through a used toy reseller.
