How it works
We all know what it’s like to be a child begging for a pet yet your parents wouldn’t let you have one since they were concerned with all the mess that comes along with it. But who could blame them? After all, as adults, we realized that it’s hard enough running after toddlers and young rascals who create a jungle everywhere they enter, now add an animal to the equation and it seems like you’ve witnessed your worst cleaning nightmare.
That’s why pretend pet toys are a perfect solution for introducing your children to all the responsibility and nurturing activity that comes along with owning an actual pet. However, knowing there are so many pretend plush animals on the market, it can be hard to make the right choice. But let’s face it, there are a few that are so well put together it is almost impossible for children to be disappointed with their new companion.
There is a VTech toy that is quite different than the other role play scenarios since the main character is not the actual pet, as instead, it’s its carrier. It is specifically designed to offer multiple entertaining and learning activities which would provide your child with lovely playtime memories and the best thing about it…? You can take it anywhere in its cute little singing box.
Meet the Care for Me Learning Carrier that comes with an adorable plush puppy, pet accessories and more than a 100 melodies and phrases. It is so hard to get bored with this product since all the playtime adventures are so versatile and entertaining. It will captivate your children immediately and soon before you know it, they will become inseparable with their new best friend.
The carrier has a magenta base and baby pink roof with a purple handle on it. You will notice many colorful buttons including the puppy one in the middle which resembles as the actual puppy you get with the box. Press it and it will greet you with a childlike voice and bark in the most adorable way. The puppy is light brown with cute little blue eyes and an adorable pink ribbon above the ear. It has a matching pink collar around the neck and it seems as if it’s smiling with its embodied pink mouth. It’s undeniably soft on touch so you will feel tempted to snuggle and cuddle every time you are around it.
The pet accessories include a yellow bone spinner, a purple comb, a blue/pink ball with tiny doggy paws on it as well as a white rattle bottle with a pink top on it. Each component is designed in a child friendly way that does not represent a choking hazard for toddlers. The carrier itself has many different options for playtime activities which include numbers, letters from the alphabet, shapes and phrases. It meant to provide basic learning activities disguised as fun bonding time with a new cuddly companion.
This cute and engaging set expects children to interact with it in order to enhance the game play which is very stimulating for the learning process that follows along. They are introduced to opposites by opening and closing the swinging door every time they put the puppy inside and take it out. There are four buttons marked with numbers from 1 to 4, each in different color on top of the box. Below you will find the letters A, B and C which children can move from left to right while learning their pronunciation. A peek-a-Boo slider and a blue and yellow roller are both included on the sides in order for them to practice basic rearranging while hearing interesting noises and observing the changing colors.
The pet accessories are meant to teach your children how to feed the puppy and play with the pet. It is quite fascinating that every component is actually a separate toy. For example, the rattle bottle makes cute noises when you shake it, and it also provides basic educational content as it shows the numbers 1,2 and 3. The tray with the spinning bone has musical notes on it and it will help them practice rotating movements while playing and feeding the puppy. The comb has the same ABC letters on it and it will help your child practice basic grooming habits. It is very cleverly designed since the whole set seems to repeat few simple components in order for toddlers to memorize them easier and get familiar with elementary educational content.
Since it offers a wide variety of sounds and options It is also quite interesting for parents as well since they can help their little ones follow each individual instruction. For example, the toy might say: “I wiggle my tail when I am happy.” You can take the plush toy and show your child how to wiggle the tail so it can learn the body part and repeat the pretend play activity. It also says: “I can run fast!”, which could be followed by teaching your toddler what running looks like and make the child chase the doggy around its carrier. Once you introduce it to all the components the children can easily follow the instructions by themselves.
It could be quite interesting for children who are older yet love grooming activities since they would enjoy pretending to feed the puppy and sing along to the joyful tunes. However, keep in mind that children above the targeted age range might get bored more easily since they would expect more complex challenges and lose interest if the toy seems too simple. Overall, the nurturing and fun nature of the set will undoubtedly provide a safe space for an emotional bond to be formed once they get to meet the adorable little puppy and its cute magical house.
This sweet and captivating toy is truly irresistible since it offers children the opportunity to experience having their first imaginary pet. Caring for animals is an important virtue and would ultimately help your child develop empathy towards other beings and give them a hand when they are neglected. It is very convenient that plush pretend pets do not require further maintenance aside from giving them a quick cleanse in the washing machine. All the other components can be efficiently cleaned with a wet wipe in case there are baby food stains once the playtime is over.
Overall this learning carrier is the most effortless and child friendly way to give your love ones an adventure filled with nurture, compassion and educational benefit. It will be an inseparable companion during sleepovers, summer camps, holiday trips and regular outdoor activities. Caring is a fundamental merit that truly starts with sharing an emotional connection so why not share this lovely toy with your cute little toddler.
