FurReal GoGo My Walkin’ Pup
With the FurReal GoGo My Walking Pup, your child can walk the dog as much as she wants, and GoGo definitely wants to go for a walk. The moment this remote-controlled pup notices your child in the room, she barks to let you know she’s ready for an adventure. So leash her up, take her outside on the sidewalk or driveway, and have fun. Designed for children 4 years and older, GoGo is as realistic a pet as it gets, complete with all the barks, pants, and whines that your child will thrill to.
Looks, Barks, and Pants Like the Real Thing
Modeled after a Bichon Frise dog, GoGo is soft to the touch and proportioned close to the real thing. Her ears have a crinkle-style texture and closely resemble a Bichon’s after a trip to the groomer. In other words, GoGo is a cutie.
Pet GoGo on the head and she will bark with enthusiasm. Pet her on the side, and she’ll turn to meet you. GoGo’s tail wags and she gives off a high-pitched bark. Her head tilts, raises and lowers, and her body wiggles.
Her actions are startlingly life-like, so much so that while our testers were taking a break from playing with her, GoGo stood before the lunch counter, barking and panting as if she wanted a treat like any real dog would. She even sheds, so beware!
Remote-Controlled Dog Wants to Go, Go, Go!
GoGo is aptly named. With the big-buttoned remote control that doubles as a leash and fits comfortably in a young child’s hand, you can turn on the pup and she’s raring to go. Set her to “try” mode, and GoGo will respond to sound or motion–she’ll also bark, but she won’t move. Set GoGo to “on” mode, and she practically tugs at her leash to go for a walk.
The leash controls GoGo’s movements. Press the forward arrow, and she walks at a kid’s pace; press the left and right arrow buttons, and she negotiates corners. Once GoGo starts moving, she doesn’t want to come back. Don’t worry, though–her motor is not too strong, so kids can easily rein her in when it’s time to go home.
Even while in the “on” mode, GoGo remains both sound and motion activated, so any activity on your walk will make her respond like a real pet. Be careful–if you cough or sneeze in GoGo’s presence, she could take off on her own!
Built to Walk on Smooth, Dry Surfaces
GoGo is designed with four rubber wheels–one beneath each paw–that are hidden by fur. Each of the front wheels rotates on a cam lobe, and GoGo’s knees are jointed, so her front legs appear to bend as if she’s extending her forepaws to walk.
GoGo responded well, walking without any stumbles or glitches, when our testers walked her on hard floors and commercial carpets. The box’s photos show GoGo parading down an outdoor sidewalk. As long as the terrain is smooth and dry, we think she’ll be fine. But make sure you gently clean GoGo off with a slightly damp cloth or brush to keep her mechanisms in working order.
This Pup Loves to Be Pampered
Like any good-natured dog, GoGo wants to be loved. She’ll whine if she’s being lifted awkwardly or pulled harshly by her leash, and she may even stop moving. In fact, in our repeated tests, it sounded as if GoGo let out a brief growl whenever we weren’t as gentle as we should have been.
Also, if you want peace and quiet around the house, make sure you turn GoGo off when it’s time for her to nap. Otherwise, like a real puppy, she pants and barks at surprising times, and that can wear down her batteries.
