My daughter wants just about every single thing she sees in stores and on television, with the front-runners changing daily. Her number one wish list item is a pet, any pet really although top of her list is a cat. I’m sorry to say that we won’t be making this particular wish come true this year, but we have found other ways to appeal to her animal loving heart and we will play those to our advantage. Let’s cross our fingers and hope she’s sufficiently distracted and doesn’t notice that any of these toys aren’t actually alive.
I think it’s safe to say that she would be thrilled with any of the items on this list. Click on any photo below to shop from your favorite retailer. Affiliate links.
All Animal Loving Kids Will Love These
Little Live Pets – Someone who knows my girl very well got her these little guys for her birthday and she loves them! These birds chirp and you can record ten seconds of your voice for them to repeat back to you. We are currently in a phase of singing Hamilton lyrics for the birds to chirp back at us and it is endlessly entertaining.
Chubby Puppies – This was my daughter’s number one request from Santa last year thanks to the commercials. I have to admit that the puppies crack me up as they cruise around their little play area and my girl loves them which is, of course, the best part.
Bootsie Pet – Did someone say cat? Sure, this isn’t quite the real thing, but this meowing, purring cat that comes with it’s own treat might just be close enough to count.
Zoomer Hedgies Sprinkles Interactive Hedgehog – I’ve got a bit of a thing for hedgehogs this year and I kind of want to see this little guy rolling around our living room.
Willa Wellie Wisher – One of the newer lines from American Girl are these adorable Wellie Wishers. They’re all wearing wellies of course, and we love Willa, the animal lover. We especially love the hedgehogs on her skirt!
Critter Club Books – For your early chapter book reader, we love these Critter Club books. These are great for readers who are ready to move on to longer books, but still enjoy illustrated pages. An added bonus is that there are tons of books in this series, so your reader will have plenty to choose from.
