Reviews - What do customers think about Pat the Puppy (Pat the Bunny) (Touch-and-Feel)?
Disappointment after "Pat the Bunny" Sep 19, 2007
I bought this because my one-year-old daughter loves Pat the Bunny and several similar books. Unfortunately this book is not nearly as fun for her and several pages are torn up after two uses, even though she's not all that destructive.
Several pages are more like a pop-up book, and the items pull right off. Other pages are just too hard for her to do. The content is not as interesting either. The only thing she actually likes are the shoes with Velcro you can work. I would not buy this book again and feel it was a waste of money.
Perfect for introducing the senses Jul 1, 2006
As a pet therapy partner with my beloved poodle, Coco, and a "Reading to Dogs" pair, we love this little book as we discuss how to pet and tickle and love a dog.
Not as good as the original Jul 17, 2005
My 12 month old daughter loved "Pat the Bunny" so I was excited to get this book for her, but it's not as good as the original. There is too much text in this one... it doesn't hold her interest as much and the activites inside the book are more difficult and not as toddler-friendly. She started destroying the book's activities in a day or two. Maybe for older kids it's better, but whereas the original book was fine for her level, this was a disappointment.
Not sturdy enough for toddlers Oct 26, 2002
The idea is a good one, but the very first thing my toddler did was rip the frog off the page. Also, it's not board book, and it doesn't have regular paper pages, it's something in between. More like oak tag folded over to create stiff pages. Pat the Bunny is the only one of this series that I would recommend.
Why mess with the original? Aug 30, 2001
Unfortunately, this is one of my 19-month old's favorite books, so I am subjected to it at least 8 times a day. The original, Pat the Bunny, is a sweet book that has an inherant, simple appeal for toddlers. Dated though it may be, it still retains a freshness that my whole family enjoys. I thought I was getting more of the same when I purchased Pat the Puppy and Pat the Pony, but this was not to be. These two books are fraught with political-correctness of a most annoying nature -- why does Granny have to go jogging, and Grandpa bake the brownies? Aren't small children comfortable with seeing stereotypical behavior in books? Give children more credit, and trust them to know that not all families are alike. They don't have to see it in a book to know that people have differences and these differences are to be celebrated. Another annoyance is that the book has too many words. Part of Pat the Bunny's appeal was its simplicity. I don't need to know that the puppy's name is Bailey, and now that I've patted him, do I need to tickle his tummy as well? By the time I read all those words, my daughter is expecting me to turn the page to get on to the next scenario. Oh, and there's one small grammatical mistake -- we are asked whether Granny's sunglasses feel shiny. Is "shiny" something touchable? I would not have purchased this book had I known there would be such a feeble attempt at copying the original. In fact, I would rate this book with zero stars if it weren;t for the fact that my daughter likes it. Ugh. Save your money.
