Fisher-Price Lil Snoopy
Advantages: inexpensive - simple - well made - robust - cute - no batteries
Disadvantages: the cord does get tangled on the dogs wheels
Shortly before my youngest daughters first birthday she received the Fisher Price Lil Snoopy as a gift.
I believe Lil Snoopy cost around £6 at the time we received him but he is widely available now (nov 11) from around £5 online and on the high street.
Lil Snoopy is a plastic dog that has four wheels and can be pulled along on a cord. Lil Snoopy has movable legs ears and tail and a bright collar. As you would expect from Fisher price the dog is very well made and robust. There are some small parts but nothing that could cause a choking hazard if it did come apart which I think would be very unlikely. The Lil Snoopy that we have is white with brown ears but he also comes in beige with brown ears or white with pink ears. When Snoopy is pulled along his head turns from side to side and his legs move while he makes a sound. This toy does not require batteries.
At first my daughter wasn't very interested in Snoopy but she was only eleven months old and although she loves our dogs I don't think she made the connection that Snoopy was supposed to be a dog. When my daughter was around eighteen months old she suddenly rediscovered Little Snoopy lurking abandoned at the bottom of the toy box and he has become a firm favourite over the last couple of months. She likes to call him Dog Dog so obviously recognises him as a dog now. Dog Dog gets dragged around quite a lot especially on the tiled kitchen floor because he moves better.
When he is pulled along Lil Snoopy makes a sound that is supposed to be a bark but is more of a popping sound. When we first got the toy it said on the box that he barked and then he made this weird pop pop pop sound and I was going to take him back thinking he was faulty. Luckily I checked a few reviews first and found that this is the noise that he is supposed to make. If you get him up to a high enough speed the pop turns into more of a squeak but I wouldn't call any of the sounds he makes a bark.
My daughter enjoys taking Dog Dog for walks and will ride her little car up and down the kitchen pulling him behind her. He doesn't do much but she seems to enjoy playing with him but does get very frustrated when the cord gets wrapped around his wheels.
I had a Fisher Price Lil Snoopy when I was a child and he got passed down through my brothers and sisters. This Lil Snoopy is just an updated plastic version of the one I had. I wish we had received him when I had my first child then all my children could have enjoyed playing with him.
I would recommend the Fisher Price Lil Snoopy to anyone with a child who has reached the toddling stage as he is a fairly cheap simple little toy that seems to be very popular.
Summary: A great value well made toy
