Present Pets by Toy Closet

Get ready for a Wow Effect present! Present Toys is an original self-unboxing puppy that paws her way out of the gift box to meet her new friends. Another surprise is who of two Fancy Pups is waiting for you in the gift box: Princess or Kweenie. Or, you can choose Glitter Pups: Cocoa and Casey. Still, no matter what Pet your kid will get, they both have beautiful expressive eyes, super soft fur, rose gold details on paws, ears, collar, and bow.

We’ve sifted through dozens of parents’ reviews and they all concur that kids adore Present Pets. Children love watching puppies doing funny and exciting things like wagging tails, shuffling paws, responding to voice, and playing games. By the way, Pets have more than 100 sounds and actions, so kids won’t get bored with them. Puppies recognize the owner’s voice, give kisses when cuddled, and become super excited when you tickle their tummies. You can hear the slurping and giggle, purring and snoring: and the process of discovering new possibilities of the puppy will be exciting and captivating!

Present Toys raise interactive toys to another level: you won’t find other toys that have the same amount of sounds and actions! And these Puppies are the perfect Christmas present: surprising, entertaining, and adorable!
