This was a little more than what I would usually spend on this toy. Researched it on many websites and found the beat deal at walmart. My daughter wanted this for Christmas, he barks dances to music he plays ,eats a bone, plays with a ball and simulates taking a bath. H e even talks. We live in a very small house and a dog is just not possible at this time. But she loves this toy H even talks! She's 7 and loves him!! Great toy.
