My kids were so excited to play with their Spot toys and to read the adorable book that originally came out 30 years ago!  Spot is a classic tale of a mommy dog looking for her puppy spot.  My 2 year old Miles loves flap books and thought it was hilarious to call out “No” when we opened all the flaps but the last.  Both Sophia and Miles love calling out the animals names and because Sophia is 4, we try to ask her what letter each animal starts with to give her a bit of a challenge.  It is also perfect for her to start reading as the words are repetitive.   The story is endearing and easy for children to understand.  They will ask for this one over and over and start to “read” it themselves as they memorize the pages. 

We had a lot of fun with the Spot toys int his package!  Spot was all over the house. 

The kids absolutely LOVED having Spot toys to play with around the house, to go to Sophia’s play school and to lounge around with.  I love how large the plush toy is and both of my kids agreed he was very cute and cuddly.  We love us a good game of hide and seek around here so we put Spot around the house and called out “Where’s Spot?” and then went to look for him.  Good times, people, good times.

The Zoobie Pillow and Blanket combination is our favorite.  We love to have pretend sleep-overs and this was perfect.  The blanket is big!  The kids can get the zipper undone and the blanket out themselves for their parties in the living room and they are almost able to turn little Spot back into a comfy pillow.  The blanket detaches with a zipper to be washed.  With a couple of Velcro tabs Spot becomes a cute stuffed puppy again.  It really is cool.
