Don't Buy It, Until We Try It: CuddleUppets

Posted: Updated:

For many kids, toys are their best friend. But, all those toys can take up a lot of space. Well, there may be a triple play for kids that parents approve.

From legos to blocks, toys of all kind fill up Kathy's Little Steps Daycare in Minot. But, the one thing missing was a CuddleUppet.

"They love puppets. Puppets are always fun," says daycare provider Kathy Bushnell.

CuddleUppets sell for around $15. They promise to be a triple play for kids: A puppet, a blanket and a friend. They come in a variety of animals, we have the green crocodile.

So, we wanted to find out what the kids at Kathy's Little Steps Daycare have to say about our new friend.

Once the box was in their hands, they didn't waste any time to open it up to meet their new fuzzy friend.

But, with every new toy, comes some scorekeeping.

"Sabrina's not sharing."

As Mr. Crocodile made his way around the circle, the kids didn't want to let him go.

"Let RJ hold it."

Once in RJ's hands, the rough housing began. But, that didn't last for long. It was time to cuddle with Mr. Crocodile.

That's when the kids learned their new friend was actually a puppet.

"Hey guys, how are you doing?"

So, did the kids warm up to the Cuddle Uppet?

"I like him because you can put apples in his mouth."

"It feels like a real alligator, and he feels like a cute little baby blanket."

"They were excited," says Bushnell. "They were having lots of fun. They love to see it catching the ball, and I definitely think that I would like it."

This was a fun product to try out despite a few disagreements between the kids. The blanket is super soft and the green crocodile is cute. I do want to caution you,  this is very well loved blanket. There were a lot of little hands on it. The one thing I didn't like was all the green fuzz ended up on me. So, you may want to wash it before using.

So, this week's Don't Buy It, Until We Try It, earns a thumbs up.
