Specifications

The GoGo My Walkin' Pup gets its power from four C cell batteries that are included. The dog is white and has a pink and purple collar and remote that is made to look like a retractable leash. The little dog is life size and looks like a toy poodle.

In Use

The GoGo My Walkin' Pup is packed in a neat little box and the first issue I noticed with the one we bought my daughter for her birthday is that the thing seems to bark at any given moment. That can be an issue if you wrap the GoGo My Walkin' Pup and put it under the tree. We had the GoGo My Walkin' Pup in the top of our closet hidden in the Toys 'R' Us shopping bag the last few weeks. Every time I went into the closet and flipped the light on and off it would start to bark and wag its little robotic pup tail.

I worried for weeks that my daughter would hear it and find the surprise. You can't turn off the demo mode until you get the GoGo My Walkin' Pup out of the box. The pup would bark occasionally when I moved the wrapped gift as well. If you give one of these, I would suggest not putting it out until the night before the big guy comes.

Other than the thing barking randomly, it’s a very cool toy. It's a remote controlled dog that has a long leash that plugs into the pups collar at the neck. The leash has three buttons on the leash. One of the buttons is forward, the other is left and the final one is right. There is no backup function on the remote; the child has to pull the leash backwards if reverse is needed. You can make the dog turn while walking forward in either direction. However, my 6-year-old daughter has small hands and she has a very hard time hitting both buttons at once to do that. She ends up hitting one button at a time when controlling the dog.

The GoGo My Walkin' Pup has sensors that activate sounds when you do certain things. If you pick the dog up it lets out a little bark. Knock the pup over and it will bark as well. Pat it's little white head and it will bark and wag its tail. The GoGo My Walkin' Pup is very cute and my daughter loves the thing.

The toy has a couple big black wheels on its bottom tucked away where you can’t see them so it really looks like the dog is walking when activated. The big wheels have plenty of traction to allow the dog to go on thick carpeting, tile floors with deep grout lines, and on concrete. The dog doesn't go on grass and you will not want to get it wet. The GoGo My Walkin' Pup is a very cool toy and was a big hit with all the kids at the birthday party. You can pick one up at several retail stores for about $60. The colors make the GoGo My Walkin' Pup mostly for girls; they should have a version with boy colors or make the little dog more unisex.

Verdict

Pros

  • Lots of fun
  • Easy to use
  • Will work on carpet and tile

Cons

  • Hard for some small hands to push forwards and turn buttons at once
  • Colors are mostly aimed at girls
 

Conclusion

The GoGo My Walkin' Pup is a reasonably priced remote control dog toy that your little one will love. It’s easy to control for just about any kid.
