There is no denying that Lucy the Dog, part of the Club Petz range from IMC Toys is going to be a huge hit on many Christmas lists this year!
With her cute and adorable looks, super soft fur, setting Lucy up to recognise commands such as her name and bark is quite easy and instructions are included – make sure you follow these properly!
Aimed at children aged 3 – 6 years, I have to admit that my almost 8 year old daughter also loves Lucy! She really is the perfect cuddling buddy and certainly a lot more obedient than our actual dog!
Lucy shows how intelligent she is by responding to a total of 15 commands: Bark, Dance, Eat, Walk, Sit, Search, Hello, Get Up, On Your Head, Shake Hands, Stand Up, Bury, Call It By Its Name, Lay Down and our house favourite Give Me A Kiss.
You do not actually need to call the dog Lucy, you can choose any name you wish! Under her belly, you can control the dog’s operation with the on and off buttons – alongside 3 different press buttons which encourage the toy to move on her ear, her back and her nose.
Lucy can struggle with the commands on occasion and can be temperamental. However be persistent and try the command again but don’t actually shout at her, just call her name and try again!
Call her by her name and she will bark once to let you know she is ready for the next command. I have noticed that Lucy will respond more to my voice than Mini Me’s, I can only suggest that I may sound a little calmer!
