LP doesn’t have many electronic toys so when we were sent the Teksta Newborn Puppy to review I just knew she would love it. Teksta have created a range of pets consisting of a puppy or kitten that your children – or pets – can interact with and LP loved the puppy from the moment she set eyes on it. The cats weren’t so sure though, maybe they would have preferred it if it had been a kitten?!
The Teksta Newborn Puppy needs two AAA batteries that are unfortunately not supplied but easy to fit – although it does require a mini screwdriver. The puppy then jumps into life with light up eyes, movements and noise. The Teksta Newborn Puppy has an on/off switch on the base which we’ve found to be a great benefit as the noises do get a bit much after listening to it for the whole day!
If you’re looking for a toy that is easy to interact with then the Teksta Newborn Puppy is fantastic. It has three different modes – walking, standing on it’s back legs and singing. In each mode it barks and moves when you talk to it or clap your hands. LP loves talking to the Teksta Newborn Puppy and loved that it would bark when she spoke to it. She also loved watching it move across the floor or stand up on it’s back legs and she was happy to treat it just like a real puppy, playing with it constantly.
The Teksta Newborn Puppy displays different emotions with the lights in it’s eyes and depending on which position it’s legs are in you are able to get it to sit and beg by clapping your hands although it is disappointing that you have to move the legs yourself to change the modes – it doesn’t seem as cutting edge as I had hoped it would be although LP loves her Teksta Newborn Puppy just the way it is which really is all that matters.
The Teksta Newborn Puppy has an RRP of £19.99
