We were pleasantly surprised by the WowWee Beagle Puppy and felt that we got what we paid for. This item was purchased for our grandson's third birthday in December, and his reaction was priceless. We weren't sure what to expect, except for some puppy sounds that we were able to hear before extracting the puppy from it's packaging. The movements -- especially the opening and closing of its eyes -- are very life-like. Our grandson calls him Baby Huey (after his real dog). He was a big hit!
