Gund Boo Review
Gund have been in business since 1898 and have an excellent reputation for high quality toys. Their latest plush toy is Boo, a cute-as-can-be Pomeranian dog modeled after the real life Boo who has taken Facebook by storm and even has his own biography: Boo: The Life of the World’s Cutest Dog.
Gund’s plush Boo is available in two sizes – 9 inch (23 cm) and 5 inch (12 cm). The smaller ones are called Itty Bitty Boo. You can also choose to buy him with or without clothes. Itty Bitty Boo can be ordered with outfits that make him way cuter. Take a good look at them all before you pick one!
Boo is suitable for kids of any age from around 12 months – including grownup kids! He’s the kind of toy that many little ones will love to have in bed with them. He has a truly adorable face with a cute smile. He looks a lot like the real Boo which will make him a big hit with fans of the real life Pomeranian.
Facts and Figures
As well as cuddling and playing with your Gund Boo, you can even pose him a little bit. He can either stand on all four legs or sit. His back legs move into one position or the other. You can see both poses in the pictures on this page.
So what about the price? I think the Gund Boo is good value for what you get – an adorable toy from a good quality brand that should last for many years. You can expect to pay around $20 for the 9 inch Boo or $15 for the dressed 5 inch Itty Bitty Boo, but check the link at the end of this review because there are often deals on one model or another.
Is There a Downside?
The only downside to the Gund Boo is that he’s not fully machine washable. You can wash his surface but you have to do it by hand. He’s pretty small so it won’t take long, but for some parents this might be a disadvantage. On the other hand, kids will love that he gets to take a bath in a basin like a real dog – instead of being drowned in the washing machine!
Gund Boo has gorgeous soft and cuddly fur and he really does look cute. Kids will love him and so will plenty of adults. We can see him being a huge hit in college dorms and offices. He’s well worth the small price that Gund are asking for him!
