Fido Walking Barking Flipping Dog
As the name suggests, this electronic dog walks, barks and flips. It is a nice way to entertain your kids if they are too young to play and take care of a real dog. Its cuteness factor comes from its look and its adorable abilities. It does not always land on its feet when it flips, but that is part of the fun of watching it do its thing. It is best to use it on flat surfaces to ensure successful flips, but again, watching the dog fail is part of its charm. You can buy it for $5.99.
