Well Made™ Toy Manufacturing Corporation, introduces PetCakes™, a new collectible plush pet line that will be a sweet treat for children ages 3 & up. Each PetCakes animal features a "frosting" hat, comes nestled in its own cupcake wrapper and has its own whimsical backstory. At first look, children will see a delicious cupcake but will then be surprised by the pet they find snuggled inside! Combining sweet faces and cuddly plush with a clever cupcake theme, PetCakes are collectible and provide hours of open-ended imaginative play. PetCakes make perfect gifts for a special friend and for pet lovers. They are ideal for birthday party favors, stocking stuffers and as rewards for good grades. Most of all, PetCakes deliver the kind of fun kids eat up!
We were given the opportunity to try these adorable little characters out right before Christmas (I hosted a review and giveaway over on The Coupon Wars). Upon opening the package up, I found these four sweet little puppies!
Twinkle Sprinkles™ is a playful, loving, and mischievous Beagle, whose colorful pink sprinkled frosting top looks good enough to eat! Twinkle Sprinkles likes to yelp when happy and sleep in her cupcake wrapper where her nose stays nice and toasty.
Coco-Coconut™ is a fluffy poodle with a loving side that is as sweet as a frosted cupcake. Cuddle Coco-Coconut and keep her cozy in her cupcake wrapper.
Blueberry Buddy™ is a Shar Pei who acts tough for his size but is a loving push over who’s as sweet as the blueberry frosting on his head. When sleepy, Blueberry Buddy cozies up in his own cupcake wrapper.
Randy Candy™ is a lovable mutt, scampering around playfully and taking long naps in his cupcake wrapper. Randy Candy is topped with tasty frosting and a cherry.
They are almost cute enough to eat! They are the perfect size for small hands, not too big, and yet not too small either. They are recommended for children ages three and up. I chose to let my girls play with Coco-Coconut and Twinkle Sprinkles (my favorite!) first, and I tucked the other two pups away for Christmas because I thought they are the absolute perfect size to stick in the top of a stocking! I think they would make a wonderful Easter basket gifts as well.
The girls (they are 4 and 3 years old) loved these. I tried to take a couple videos and they kept running off to play with them. Our only complaint was that they were attached to their cupcake holders, but that was an easy fix to just cut the string.
My three year old even fell asleep (on the family room floor!) with hers the day they got them. Adorable! They still play with them nearly every day. They're just so sweet.
PetCakes are now available at specialty stores, Toys R Us (online only – not yet in the stores), E Toys and Amazon. They have a retail price of $13.99
