Fisher Price Walk N' Wag Pluto

 Expert Review

Review:

When children move the toggle switch at the end of Baby Pluto's leash, he can walk forward, wag his tail, shake his head and bark to the command of a remote control. He plays tug-of-war and growls when a child tries to take the large bone out of his mouth. The toy permits children an early experience with pet behavior. Children also learn to think strategically in commanding the toy's movement and action. A child's motor skills and problem solving abilities are refined. Cause and effect is also learned as children see how their actions make the toy respond.

This is gadgety with the walking leash and automation, but limited in use. I bought it since I can't get a dog for my toddler, but it sits in the closet and I walk by and wonder why I bothered spending $30 plus on a toy that gets no play, live and learn. We are sold so much STUFF for KIDs on TV and as Consumers and we romanticize what we buy for at times. The real play value is with each other and interaction together more than with the toys. Back to basics is more important than forward to electronics that free us in ways and yet isolate and dictate to us more than anything. Let the children color and use playdough and read:)!

We ordered this for our boys for Christmas and when it arrived Pluto wouldn't walk or wag. We exchanged it and received the replacement one in January. Now after only 2 months the new one doesn't work either. My boys enjoy playing with it, but it isn't something they use every day so it hasn't had a lot of wear and tear. It's cute, but not a very well made or durable toy.

Please don't waste your money on this toy. We bought this for my three year old daughter for Christmas and she has only played with him once. We put him in her play room two days after she got him and he hasn't moved since. Overall Pluto doesn't do much. He only walks a little - in a small circle. He's cute when he wags his tail but that gets old quick. The sad thing is that my daughter is a huge Disney fan so this toy should have been an easy sell, but it wasn't.

My older daughter (4) gave this to my younger daughter (2) for Christmas (she picked it out & we couldn't convince her otherwise!). It has been a huge hit. On the leash it has a control "knob/joystick" that can be pushed in 4 different directions: push it up & pluto walks forward while barking. push it backwards & pluto pants & sounds like pluto (sounds like he's saying "yea, yea, yea".) while he wags his tail & shakes his head back & forth. push it to the right & pluto whimpers. push it to the left & makes a few different sounds each time you push it (panting, licking, etc.). all the sounds are at a great noise level (good for the kids to hear but not something that would annoy you over time). The only thing (so far) that is an issue is the you have to keep pushing the button up to get pluto to walk (you can't simply hold it down & take him for a walk). also - every once in awhile the up & down will make the noises but not the motions - we found that if you then take it through the 4 "stations" it will start moving again. something that my kids figured out quickly. (my 4 year old definitely can manuver the dog better than my 2 year old - she just loves playing with the buttons whereas my 4 year old actually walks the dog, etc.) All in all - a fun little toy! - (if not a little expensive...)

Great toy! My son loves it. Pluto is his favorite chacacter and he also loves walking dogs. So the combo was great.
