Scruff-a-Luvs Instructions: Rescue Your New Plush Pet
What we love about creative play is that kids can learn and practice real-world experiences.
Mimi adores animals and she loves to take care of them.
She was excited to rescue an abandoned animal and if your child loves animals too, they will go gaga over these Scruff-a-Luvs.
When you bring them home, you take them out of the box and the poor little things arrive as little matted balls. You don’t know if it’s a cat, dog, or rabbit but, you know that they need help.
They have over 35 lifelike sounds and interactions that include shivering, whimpering, feeding, hiccups and heartbeat.
First of all, for every Scruff-a-Luvs Real Rescue adopted, Scruff-a-Luvs will donate part of the proceeds to the ASPCA to help real animals find their ‘furever’ homes. How amazing is that?
You can pick one up for $59.99 and they’re perfect for kids 4+.
Secondly, now that you’ve brought one home, you’re going to want to know how to help them.
Read on for more details and for Scruff-a-Luvs instructions to turn that poor little matted furball into a fluffy new member of the family.
1. Open Up Your Scruff-a-Luvs
One of the most exciting things is opening up the box where your kiddo’s new little rescue pet awaits. You can help your child open the box as you will need to cut some tape.
2. Remove Insert
The next step is to then remove the plastic insert from the plushie. This will activate the sounds and vibrations. The little matted ball of fur will begin to shake and shiver and needs your child to help clean him and de-matte its fur.
3. Wash the Scruff-a-Luvs
You can either take a bowl and fill it with water or just use a clean sink to begin washing your new fur friend. Use lukewarm water and make sure to rinse it well. You can use a soft and gentle baby shampoo if you’d like. It gives it a good clean and smells good too!
4. Reveal Your Rescue
Now that your Scruff-a-Luvs is being washed you can see what you’ve rescued. Is it a dog or is it a cat? Maybe it is a rabbit? In our case, we revealed a super cute kitty cat.
5. Dry the Scruff-a-Luvs
Once you are done bathing it, grab a towel and towel dry. To get him or her fully dry, you can help your child (or ask a parent) to help you use the hairdryer. Just use a low or warm setting, not hot, to avoid burning it.
6. Style and Love
After your Scruff-a-Luvs is nice and dry, you can put on his/her collar and name them. Mimi named her new kitty, Ben. She brushed and groomed him and now she has a new pal to cuddle with.
Bring One Home
For example, what I love about Scruff-a-Luvs as a parent, is that you can teach your little one a little responsibility. Especially if they aren’t ready for a pet and you’re not ready for that responsibility either.
