My daughter is 2 years old and absolutely loves animals, particularly dogs and cats. This toy was a huge hit with her, she loves giving to dog his food and petting him. The dog is very soft and cuddly, also a great size for a toddler to hold on to while walking around.
My only complaint is that it is difficult for her (and me sometimes) to activate the eating sounds when you put the bone or food to the dog's mouth. It doesn't make my daughter terribly frustrated, but she does hand the toy to me to make the eating sounds.
