Remember when you were a kid and you wanted to save every animal you could find that was in need? From the bird that ran into a door to the dog that was running loose – if there was an animal, you would be its hero right?!
Except mom and dad would usually respond with “hey, get that thing out of here” – and you would have to take the animal back outside with that broken heart. Pretty sure most of us animal lovers have been there.
Well, there is a new toy coming to town that can fill that need kids have to take care of stray animals and we are loving it! Rescue Runts are the perfect toys for those kids that are showing a love of animals at even the earliest ages!
We also think these little guys can also be used to show kids how caring for an animal can result in great things and make you feel amazing!
The toys are scheduled for launch in the summer of 2018 and we are hoping these become so popular that they become a staple under those Christmas trees this year.
These plush toys are available as cats and dogs and may not look so pretty at first, but with some love and care they become a picture perfect pet. Below is a sample of their German Shepherd pup!
They arrive in crates that are in disrepair with matted fur filled with fleas, dirty paws and watery eyes. Your child will be so sad when they see the horrible shape these pups and kitties are in – but wait, the magic is about to happen to make this toy turn that frown upside down!
Bring out the tweezers to pull out the yucky a fleas – a soft cloth to wipe away the tears and the dirt from their paws. Spend some time cuddling with the furry friends to help speed up their healing – pet them, brush them and watch them turn into a beautiful pet that will show them the love only a rescue pet can!
Oh – but wait, that is not where the fun ends! In just a few days the toy will again become a matted dirty mess – showing children that pets are need of constant care! Once they do the maintenance needed, the toy again becomes a clean happy version of itself.
