Gund Boo Reviews

Gund Boo verticalToy makers Gund have been in business since 1898 and have an excellent reputation for high quality. Their latest cuddly toy is Boo, a cute-as-can-be Pomeranian dog. He’s modeled after the real life pet Boo who has taken Facebook by storm and even has his own biography: Boo: The Life of the World’s Cutest Dog.

Gund’s Boo is available in two sizes, 9 inch (23 cm) and 5 inch (12 cm). The smaller ones are called Itty Bitty Boo. Itty Bitty Boo can be ordered with clothes, outfits that make him look even more cute. We recommend you scroll through them all before you pick your favourite.

Boo is suitable for kids of any age from around 12 months and also very popular with teenagers, college kids and even adults too. He’s the kind of toy that many little ones will love to have in bed with them, while older kids will treat him more like a mascot. He has an adorable face with a sweet smile. He does a lot like the real life Boo so he’ll be a big hit with fans, but you don’t have to know anything about the real Boo to love him.

As well as cuddling and playing with your Gund Boo, you can move him around a little bit. He has two poses: he can either stand on all four legs or sit. His back legs move into one position or the other. You can see both positions in the pictures on this page.

And the price? We think the Gund Boo is good value for what you get. This is an adorable toy from a quality brand that should last for many years. You get a bigger Boo for your money with the 9 inch version, which doesn’t come with clothes. On the other hand the 5 inch dressed Itty Bitty Boo is so cute, you might well decide it’s worth the same price or even more.

The only disadvantage of the Gund Boo is that he’s not fully machine washable. You have to hand wash his coat. He’s small so this is quick to do, and kids will love that he gets to take a bath in a basin like a real dog instead of being drowned in the washing machine like their other toys.

Gund Boo has gorgeous soft, cuddly fur and he really does look adorable. We think he’s an excellent choice for any child or adult who likes soft toys.
