This is almost too cute. The puppy moves and hops and barks albeit in a robotic manner but nevertheless it is endearing. This is going to be a hit for the holidays. The controls are a bit cumbersome but not impossible. The charging cable is in the box and would be very easy to lose on Christmas morning as it is not highlighted in any way. I would recommend getting the dog out and removing all of the tethers as the kind of thing that makes kids crazy on Christmas morning, the wait to get the toy out of the box. Saying there is an instruction “book” is generous. It is a piece of paper. I saw no instructions on how to charge. It is somewhat obvious with the USB C cable to use but some not of charging would have made sense. Overall my reaction to the toy was very positive.
Perhaps the best part of this puppy is no tinkle on the carpet.
