I never thought I would get the opportunity to review my daughter's Doggy Paddler for DooYoo but here it is and here we go :)
**What is it?**
The doggy paddler is a typical plastic wind up and paddle / splash bath toy, aimed at toddlers and young children. It's also available in Frog and Duck versions at the same price.
**Price and Availability**
DooYoo states £4 but I paid £2 so I think that's the correct price. You can buy it in Early Learning Centre and Mothercare branches (the Mothercares which have an Early Learning Centre built into them such as for example the Ancoats Street branch in Manchester centre) and online at their respective websites (a delivery fee applies).
The dog is a lovely vibrant yellow with black spots and ears, and he is wearing cute green swimming trunks! Underneath the dog there is a yellow winder to wind up his mechanism. His arms are designed like paddles as they are what makes him 'go'.
It's obviously really easy, all you do is wind up the doggy, pop him on the water's surface and let go and away he goes! This usually has my 19 month old daughter in absolute hysterics and she often grabs him out of the water before the mechanism has run out and his arms are still flailing madly (but it's perfectly safe and she finds that even more hilarious!)
The toy has lasted since last Christmas and it's still used, and there's no type of overwinding problems or rust / moulding and so on.
Yes, absolutely! It's a pocket money priced toy and a brilliant stocking filler (which is what we used it for). It's lasted well and it's incredibly cute. It'd make a nice gift too as often kids end up with loads of toys but less bath toys, so it's nice to give something different. Yes, overall I give this 5 stars out of 5 because it's a lovely little toy for the money and it's sure to give lots of fun to it's little owner.
Summary: A great pocket money stocking filler toy
