This is supposed to respond to you, perform tricks when you offer it a bone and have four key points to use the magnetic bone to play with... well it would have been helpful if there were instructions as I haven't found the four key points yet and certainly no tricks seem to be performed. The head can move from side to side but that's about it. The pictures on the side of the box show a poodle apparently walking, definitely standing - this toy doesn't do much more than sit. Waste of money and quite expensive for what it is.
I couldn't believe the reviews I've read on this toy on Amazon. My son asked for a Trick Trainer for his birthday as he loves his Nintendogs DS game and so I got him the Toy Poodle because it was available. He absolutely loves it! It is now his favourite toy and he won't leave home without it! The gameplay is fun too as he pretends to teach the dog to beg by lifting his paw with the magnet and then wag his tail in excitement too in the same way. For £10 this was real value for money and I am only on-line so I can buy another breed!
My son wasted his birthday money on this toy. It is basically a small stuffed toy with a few magnets inserted inside. The bone is also a magnet. Any "tricks" are achieved by holding the dog and making the magnets interact with each other. A clunking move of the head is all that is really achieved. My son was VERY disappointed and upset. I was angry. A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY. Nintendo should be ashamed of themselves for conning small childen in such a shameless way.
