Promotional Review Smart Stages Puppy By Rachel and Maddox Maddox is 8 months Rachel's score 4 Star(s) Buy Now “Lovely soft toy that provides loads of entertainment” Maddox was immediately drawn to the Smart Stages Puppy and wanted to play! You can press various parts of the Puppy's body to hear different sounds, phrases and activities for your child to follow and repeat. There are 3 stages to choose from depending on your child's age and abilities which can be changed by pressing the puppy's foot. I find this is a great feature as it means the toy can last a lot longer and grow with your child, although I think a button near the battery pack may have been a better place to include a switch to change the stage as it was a bit too easy for Maddox to switch levels. Maddox particularly likes the songs and also the animal noises. I like the plush soft fabric of the puppy and the buttons are easy to press although at 8 months old Maddox has not yet figured out how to do this himself. I think it's a good toy to take out with you as it provides lots of entertainment in just one toy! Overall, it is a nice toy with lots of activities. I think it's also a nice comforter toy due to the lovely soft fabric.
