Emotion Pets - Toffee The Pony **REVIEW**

**AD - Review**

A few months back Evelyn stumbled upon a show called Spirit - Riding Free over on Netflix and ever since then she has been absolutely besotted with horses! So much so in fact that she somehow even managed to convince us to spend a small fortune so she could go horse riding, but honestly her smile made it all worth while (even if it did rain the whole time!).

Since then she has been hooked, horses are her absolute favourite and she spends all day talking about horses, drawing pictures of horses, reading books and watching shows about horses and most of all playing horses. So I am sure you can imagine her excitement when Toffee the Pony from Emotion arrived on our doorstep for Evelyn to try out!

Toffee is an absolutely adorable soft toy pony with a range of interactive features that really make Toffee come to life.

Inside the box is a very cute, fluffy Toffee the pony soft toy as well as several accessories which you can use to interact with Toffee, these include a carrot and brush. Evelyn was a little disappointed to discover the brush wasn't an actual brush and was in fact just a plastic toy that "looked" like a brush. She loves brushing hair so just used a baby brush instead to do this and just used the brush included to play.

To bring Toffee to life you will need to insert 4 x AA batteries (not included) into a small compartment under his belly. This can be a bit tricky as the fur around the opening is quite tight so be careful not to rip or tear this when you do place the batteries inside.

Over all Toffee is very soft, his legs are fluffy, soft and bendy, this does mean though that Toffee is unable to stand on his legs but it does make him perfect for cuddling. His body is soft too although if you squeeze him hard enough you can feel the hard battery pack inside. You can also feel the mechanism inside the head too as well as the hard eyes.

Toffee Has 7 interactive features in total including making a number of realistic sounds and signals as well moving his head, ears and eyes. Toffee loves attention and affection and when he wakes up your child will need to work out what Toffee wants by the noises he makes and by his actions, does he want feeding, cuddles or something else? Evelyn has great fun trying to keep Toffee happy and loved it when wanted his tummy tickled especially.

Just like a real pet, Toffee gets spooked and scared by loud noises, he will close his eyes and cry until you comfort him. A great tool for educating kids about how to be kind, careful and not too loud around real life pets too.

Toffee the pony is aimed at children aged 2 + but I think he could absolutely be enjoyed by children way beyond that age too. It is priced at £44 and is available from most good toy stores including Argos and Very.
