My oldest son Matthew is at the age where he’s really interested in how things are made. He’ll likes to take things apart and put them back together again, and he likes to try to figure out how pieces go together – whether it’s a puzzle or building blocks. I’m always looking for new opportunities to encourage his curiosity. A great new toy on the market called Wuggle Pets looked like it would be a perfect fit.
Wuggle Pets gives kids the opportunity to build their own little pets, right at home. By using what they call the “Fun Filled Factory”, kids can create and personalize each Wuggle pet. I was surprised at how easy the process was – for me and for my three-year-old. Matthew loved being able to stuff the factory piece with the fluff, stopping only to add the special magic dust to make his pet unique. Once the factory was filled, he was able to fill his Wuggle pet with stuffing on his own (with very little help from me). After he finished filling his pet, I helped complete the process by pushing the excess stuffing into the pet’s arms and legs. Then Matthew placed the pet’s personality tags inside the stuffing and he helped me zip up the back of his pet with the special zipper tool. We then filled out the birth certificates for each of his two new pets – which Matthew named Puppy Dog and Pony.
Matthew enjoyed the end-product of his new adventure, but most of all, enjoyed the process. He was so excited to fill up the factory with the fluff for each pet – and was fascinated at watching the pets fill as he turned the handle. I like that now that we have the factory, we can easily buy new little pets separately. I think this will make a great new reward tool for Matthew, being able to create a new pet as a special treat.
