How many times have your kids asked you for a pet or more specifically a puppy? My kids had asked us for a puppy for years before we finally decided to get Cooper, our lab mix puppy. My husband and I had discussed all the added expenses of owning a dog, having to walk a dog, feed a dog, and of course leaving the house for more than 8 hours would be out of the question. But children aged 5 and up don’t have to wait for a puppy of their own now with Zoomer- Your REAL Best Friend– Robotic Dog from Spinmaster. With Zoomer there is no messy clean up, no need to spend money on food or vaccinations, and he’s a lot easier to take care of. Don’t let that fool you into thinking this is just another mechanical walking dog toy. With Zoomer children can still experience all the love and affection of a real puppy. This fully interactive puppy will steal your heart as you play with him, teach him tricks, scratch his belly and much more.
Zoomer is the perfect pet for children that want a puppy but can’t because of allergies, they can’t have a pet where they live, or many other reasons. Just like a real dog you’ll need to teach him everything a puppy needs to know. Children can all his name, teach him lots tricks and watch how excited he gets when you reward him with a real good belly scratch. My girls love when Zoomer gets excited and wags his tail just like our real dog does. Zoomer is so smart that he can understand English, Spanish and French- Cooper only knows one language. Zoomer can follow your movement with his puppy eyes. There is even an app you can download for free for iOS or Android to learn everything there is to know about training Zoomer. When you first start training Zoomer he might make some mistakes just like a real puppy but before you know it, he’ll be following all your commands like lay down, roll over, sit, and even go pee! When you press the button on Zoomer’s back he will reward you with a random trick! He’s all the fun of a family pet without the mess, vaccinations and responsibility.
We took Zoomer out of the box, used the included cable to charge his battery, and then he was ready to learn and play. Zoomer is easy to play with. Press his head and when you see the 2 question marks in his eyes, give him a command. He does everything a puppy can do. He scoots around, wags his tail, barks, whines, pants, and even speaks. Just like a real puppy Zoomer has his own unique personality which can be unpredictable at times. Zoomer can get bored, fall asleep or wander off to explore, so make sure you keep him engaged. With a little practice, you can even become a Master Zoomer Trainer. Just remember to be patient, because like a real puppy he might forget. My girls both have fun working with Zoomer to teach him new tricks and they love when he explores and wiggles around our floor playing like a real dog. Don’t worry Cooper, you’re not being replaced!
