I recently bought this for my daughter and its great fun!
She loves her new realistic puppy, with his barking,running around and even peeing hes realistic in the eyes of a 5 year old.
Great for a child who wants a real puppy for xmas and cant for any reason, could be a good substitute to some degree.
Only thing was the fact its attatched to the remote control, in my opinion it would have been better and more fun if it was wireless like a remote control car.
Great price though, chepest on the net i could find so cant grumble :)
