When this cute little toy arrived just after our holidays and we opened the box Miss J couldn’t wait to get her hands on it! She absolutely loves soft toys and this cute little pet has the added bonus that it comes with decorations that you can use to adorn her (and yourself!).
The toy pet is really soft and just the perfect size for cuddling up to. It’s a lovely toy just on it’s own but it also comes with a matching headband and also a shimmer wand that you can use to embellish your pet with sparkly sequins.
It’s really easy to use, you store the sparkly sequins in the star wand and use the handle of the wand to pick up a sequin and press the button to release the sequin.
A clever little cut in the middle of the sequin means that when you press the button it clings onto the fur of the pet and stays put. You can add as many as you like in different patterns and you can remove them easily using the comb provided meaning that you can have fun decorating it time and time again. The sequins are completely reusable too so no buying top up packs, what comes in the original packet will last if you look after them.
You can also use the sequins on your own hair which is a great idea if you are playing dress up or heading to a party. Miss J loved being able to match with her pet!
