My children love toys, they also love collecting things…EVERY THING! With each advert that comes on tv between cartoon is the promise of another toy that not only is collectable but will fullfill all their wishes, the mountains of teeny bits of plastic in the form of Shopkins, NumNoms, Tsum Tsums and so on etc…
I have always put the children off starting another collection as we have often found the toys to be expensive for what they are, disregarded quickly and of nothing but novelty value which is why we have skipped the In My Pocket range. Having been around since the 90’s and in the forms of puppies, kittens, jungles and more I am surprised we have managed not to accumulate a stash of them over the last 2, almost 3, decades!
The girls were sent one of the Puppy In My Pocket Carriers and a seperate accessory pack to review.
The puppy carrier has two ‘surprise pack’ bags inside which each contain a random puppy, the reason they are called surprise bags is because you cant see what you are getting -meaning you will no doubt end up with duplicates but also makes it a little more exciting in opening a bag not knowing which one is inside. The carriers retail at £4.99 which considering has 2 puppies inside is a cute little pocket money toy.
With the larger accessory pack you receive not only 2 puppies but also a dog bed, basket, feed bowl, blanket, treat and a collector’s checklist! There are three styles available to collect – pink, purple and teal.
Amelia loved how realistic the dogs were and the fact they are felt covered makes them a little more tactile than a plastic toy, the rest of the accessories are sturdy and well made too.
The accessory packs retail at £7.99 available from www.flairplc.co.uk
The girls spent a long time making up scenarios with the puppies and I have already been talked into buying more of the carriers for them instead of giving pocket money and with Kitty in my Pocket and Jungle in my Pocket coming out later in the year I know I’m in trouble! I just knew it would lead to another collection but this one I don’t mind so much as they are really cute and value for money!
There is a Twitter Frenzy tomorrow between 1 and 2pm with @ukmumstv #PuppySurprise – prizes to be won!
