FurReal Friends Cookie – My Playful Pup

How many of your kids have “puppy” on their Christmas list? My younger kids ask for a puppy just about every year….and so far every year they have been disappointed. Granted, the Christmas tree was filled with OTHER presents, so they quickly forget their disappointment until next Christmas rolls around.

“Mom! Can we get a puppy?!”

Well, this year, that puppy might be able to make it under the tree.

Meet Cookie My Playful Pup from FurReal Friends

My kids love their FurReal Friends. This Fall, they added an adorable newborn penguin to their FurReal collection. I’ve been looking around at new FurReal Friends to add to the Christmas shopping list this year, and I’ve fallen in love with real-puppy-sized Cookie. It’s amazing how adding a little bit of responsive action to a toy really makes it come alive for my kids.

FurReal Friends Cookie My Playful Pup


Here’s a little about Cookie from Hasbro:

With real-as-can-be movements, sounds and actions, COOKIE MY PLAYFUL PUP lets you experience the joy of having a puppy of your very own!

When you pet her on her head or back, she barks, moves her head and wags her tail. Give her cheek a little scratch and she’ll turn toward your hand to ask for more! When you tell her just how sweet she is, she’ll respond with puppy babble that sounds just like she’s talking to you!

She loves her squeaky toy — when you make it squeak, she’ll turn her head toward the sound! When you put her toy bone in her mouth, she’ll make crunching sounds like she’s chewing it.

This soft, adorable pup is about 14 inches tall and you can either sit her up or pose her front legs so she’s lying down. The very best thing about COOKIE MY PLAYFUL PUP is that she’ll always be puppy-cute!

Puppy comes with squeaky toy bone.


Ages 4 and up.
Suggested retail price: $59.99

  1. kathleen says

    what isn’t on my kids list? My child wants a Rockstar Mickie, any and all musical instruments, the largest nerf guns i can find, a bike, every Imaganext toy under the sun– the pirate ship, the rocketship, all the batman toys. Oh and he has also asked for an I-pad. LOL! We are going to have to heart to heart about Santa’s limitations.

  2. Marci W. says

    My kids are going for the toys this year. Legos, Polly Pockets, American Girl dolls and Star Wars Operation are at the tops of their lists.

  3. Jessica Credle says

    My daughter has asked for Barbie Mermaid, Glow and Sing Rapunzel, Rapunzel dress and crown, and a Cookie My Playful Pup (because her cousin has one and she LOVES it).

  4. charlotte says

    This made her Christmas Wish List along with American Girl doll. She is 4 so she doesn’t want much! Thank Goodness!

  5. Nicole says

    I four children and they really are being simple this year they dont want a whole lot…Well except my four year old and she wants EVERYTHING in the Toys R Us Catolog!!! She would love Cookie though!!!

  6. says

    My kids love those things! So yes they would like a “new puppy” at Christmas the hard part would be figuring out whose name to put on the box!

  7. says

    My daughter HAS a real dog, but has wanted a FurReal friend very badly for a very long time! Little girls and their stuffed animals … how can you argue, when you used to be the same way?? :)

    I’d love to win this for her.

  8. MayMay says

    She wanted a dog, a stuffed animal, a v-tech, and some other things that i may be able to get her. But, she would love to have one of these i seen her playing with it on the aisle in the store. I think this would be a perfect present for her since i probably cant get her exactly what she wants. : )

  9. Quirita says

    My 6 year old would absolutely love this pup! She wants to be a veterinarian and loves all things animals. She actually runs a “vet” out of her room for her stuffed animals :)

  10. Brenda Smith says

    My 4 year old is wanting this puppy. My 8 year old is wanting art stuff. My 11 year old is wanting camping stuff or science stuff

  11. Brandy says

    My almost 3 year old son wants a puppy so bad, his nana has a dog and he trys to sneak her home with him when he stays, but because we rent we are not aloud to have one. He would LOVE this :)

  12. Sharon Jay says

    I am getting my four year old triplets the FP Loving family dollhouse, but Maryanna is an annimal lover and would Love this puppy!

  13. says

    I have six kids, all with different wants. My youngest son wants Nintendo DS games and my oldest daughter wants a laptop bag. My youngest step-daughter wo uld love the My Playful Pup. Thanks.

  14. says

    Oh my goodness, my daughter just wrote a letter to Santa and asked for this TODAY! It would be such a blessing to win because we can’t afford something that expensive.

  15. Miriam Herr says

    My daughter would like this puppy & itty bitty twins from American Girl Doll but she decided to give the money we would havee spent on her to children in 3rd world countires instead (through World Vision). She said a gift from her brothers will be enough for her this year. I am so proud of her for giving. She is adopted from Guatemala and she knows that she could have been in the same situation as are many of these children so she has a heart of compassion.

  16. Candice says

    I am a single mom of 5 children that are ages 6, 7, 8, 9, and, 9. I work very hard to try to provide for them but as any single mother knows, it’s a hard job. My 8 year old daughter told me the other day that she didn’t care what she got for Christmas as long as she got Cookie, the puppy with a bone. I started looking around at prices and could not believe that this toy cost almost $60. I would really like to see my kids get the toys they ask for this year, but I don’t know how I’m going to swing it. I had no idea that this toy had so many features and I would love to be able to see her open it on Christmas day.

  17. AndreaH says

    He’s not quite making his own list yet but it consists of “I want it” to just about everything he sees.

  18. Melissa N. says

    My son will be 1 a few days before Christmas so he doesn’t really have a preference, but he does love the Rockin’ Elmo.

  19. says

    One of mine is asking for “a panda to hold” (of which he already has two) and then the others are not too specific…I’m sure they will be in the years to come!

  20. jackie decker-sanchez says

    which kid…lol

    my only girl wants barbies, sidewalk chalk, a saxophone (her big brother plays one. lol), and my boys want video games and nerf stuff

  21. says

    I don’t have any kids at home but my granddaughter wants My Little Pony and Barbies:-) Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter this giveaway, Cookie is so adorable:-) xo

  22. Gretchen Gerth says

    My granddaughter wants Twirling Polly, she keeps telling us that is what she wants, however we have no idea what that is! Needless to say she is not very good at explaining to us where she saw it or what it is. If you’ve heard of it please let me know!

  23. Cindy Ray says

    My son is 4 and wants some sort of game system, my 15 yr old step daughter wants hair stuff, makeup and a ipod speakers and my 1 1/2 yr old daughter isnt really picky she would love just about anything :)

    green_eyed_princesss at msn dot com

  24. says

    The little one is into the Fur Real pets, Princesses, Dora, etc. The big boy loves Star Wars anything, and is also asking for a Magic kit…amongst a billion other things!

  25. says

    Just about every TV commercial that comes on (for kids) is added to my Granddaughters list. LOL
    My son would love an IPad but that’s not happening. My daughter likes cake pans. My husband has narrowed his list down to everything from page 72-197 in the Cabelas catalog. Geez.

  26. Martha Boismier says

    I’m 54 years old and I would love to get this puppy for myself! So pretty and soft to snuggle up too.thank you for the chance to win this.

  27. says

    My kids don’t really have a wish list…they know we will not have any money to celebrate this year and have adapted quite well to the situation…but finances are tight and unless I win a few things or find a few to review…we’re not going to be able to celebrate…:( …heavensent1@yahoo dotcom

  28. Niecey Docherty says

    My son wants anything robot, my 4 year old daughter wants strawberry shortcake, the older girls have circled lots of things in catalogs.

  29. Bonnie says

    My 3 year old daughter really wants this pup! She also wants the rock and roll Mickey, which I imagine is really popular with lots of kids, this year!

  30. Amber says

    My kids both have a pretty interesting list this year, my 6 year old’s being a little comical. We have a 4 month old puppy she is not quite used to yet, and when we saw this in the store she told me that it would be more behaved then ours, and we should buy it…..

  31. says

    My youngest is 1 and anytime she sees a baby doll or a animal she squeals and gets so excited! So we’ll get her a doll for Christmas and she would love this puppy too!

  32. Melanie says

    American girl doll stuff (daddy is making some), Baby doll accessories, Clothes,books, games. A real dog. (Not gonna happen) This one would be an awesome alternative. 😉

  33. Sally Garrick says

    My Daughter would love Cookie. This is definitely one of the big things she had on her list along with some Barbies and Polly Pockets. I hope I win this for her.

  34. Rachel H says

    My daughter would LOVE this! Its been noted that she already wants this. She also can’t wait to tell Santa that she’d want a Doodle Bear, the whole gamut of Princess costume attire, and a castle.

  35. Susan says

    My daughter loves the Furreal friends line of toys. When we went to the store to make up her wish list she saw Cookie and fell in love. Cookie the playful pup is all she talks about. We are not allowed to have a dog in our apartment and she wants one soo bad. This dog seems so life like and I thnk would make her a very happy girl this Christmas.

  36. Lantana H. says

    My 5 year old found out what an Ipad was and he really wants one. I’m not giving a 5 year old an Ipad, but he may get a Leap Pad :)

  37. Linda Kish says

    My great nieces want anything makeup and my great nephew wants a race car. I have no idea for the little ones yet. But I am sure one of my DIL’s nieces or nephews would love this

    lkish77123 at gmail dot com

  38. Jodi says

    This is the one toy my daughter has been consistent in asking for. I tried to nab it today (Black Friday) but they’re either already scooped up (like at Toys R Us where they were only $29.99 today) or the deal just isn’t good enough to constitute purchasing it (yes, I am THAT frugal..haha). I would be ecstatic if I could win this for her :)

  39. Katya says

    My 5 year old wants this puppy, a purple beary sweet doll, barbies, and a keyboard so she can start piano lessons. My 3 year old wants Thomas trains, crayola set, tonka plane/truck and transformers rescue bot. Thank you!

  40. says

    After just having a baby, we can’t afford much this season and my children know to only request one main gift and be pleasantly surprised with what God blesses us with this Christmas. I’m actually having fun trying to enter these giveaways and see where God blesses. My daughter is heart set on a Disney Princess Rapunzel baby doll. My son would like the game Wipe Out 2 or Disney Universe for the Wii. The baby doesn’t know the difference, but he is partial to Mickey Mouse stuff too.

  41. says

    My Amelia filled her list with stuffed animals. She especially wants a stuffed animal hummingbird and a butterfly. But she’d really love this dog!

  42. Christine says

    My daughter wants this very puppy! It’s beyond my wallet’s capability to get it for her, so *fingers crossed*. Thanks!

  43. Lisa Coan says

    Since our 16 y/o English Springer Spaniel (Abby) passed away in May, my son would love to get another dog but we just don’t have the money right now to care for a dog. This would be an awesome alternative. He would also love to have some musical equipment.

  44. Kelly D says

    My daughter wants Hello Kitty Clothing and Jewelry, and she has been asking for a dog like this since another child brought one for show and tell at preschool.

  45. Lisa Neutel says

    My daughter has been asking for this cookie dog for 2 years now, it would be awesome if i could win it for her!!!

  46. says

    My 7yr old has been asking for a pillow pet for years, he’ll be thrilled that “santa” got him one this year! The other kids pretty much want everything they see in stores or on commercials lol.

  47. says

    My daughter wants a furreal friend, and my son wants monster trucks =)
    If she gets this she is going to be so happy. I’ve already went to wal-mart. Thinking about getting her a fur-real kitty too. =)

  48. Loubna Khoury says

    I have a son who will be 2 years old December 9th. He is in love with puppies and always squeals with excitement when he sees one. He pretends to be a puppy all the time. Unfortunately, things are really bad financially this year and Im hoping to win this puppy for him since we cannot afford it and cant get a real puppy either.

  49. Jennifer THomas says

    This is on my 7yr olds list..but we are unable to do it this year.. Hubby is in school FT and was laid off 2 mths ago.. SO .. hoping to win to make my daughter smile!! 😉

  50. Michelle Beeler says

    A friend of mine at work has a 4 yr old little girl and all she has asked for is fur real friends cookie my playful puppy! She is a single mom and is having a really hard time. I’m trying to see what I can do to get one for her. My lil boy who is 5 has been asking for a drum set!

  51. Montse Greenawalt says

    Books, books, and more books! These are the first things are on the list. Then, gadgets like electronics for the boys and my girly wants a puppy, that’s the reason Cookie, even not a real puppy would do just perfect.

  52. Charity says

    THIS DOG is one of the things on my daughter’s list. Unfortunately, I’m not wiling to throw down $60 for it…but if I won it, that would be FABULOUS!

  53. Robyn L says

    the list includes iPad, electronic games, Wii games, stuffed animals and a fire engine

    Cookie is such a cutie patooty


  54. patricia white says

    I looked at this several times, she wants anything barbie and she loves makeup and clothes….anad she is only 4….yikes

  55. Sharon says

    I have a toddler, so I made her list! But there are lot of toys on her list that include the alphabet, toy food items, a toy dog, Tommy Tippee cups, plastic dinnerware etc.

  56. Rebecca C. says

    My daughter’s list: Barbies, arts & crafts supplies, DVDs, gift cards, books, and (believe it or not!) world peace.

  57. says

    There are some really strange things on my kids’ lists. Like, a gorilla suit for my prankster son! I’m scared to get that for him – he might just land someone in the hospital with a heart attack, knowing him!

    My girl would love a puppy – she’s always asking for one like Grandma’s doggie but our diva kitty would seriously object to a live real one. So this could fit the bill….

  58. Megan Weber says

    My daughter has seen this dog and has wanted to take it home every time! She also wants the Rapunzel doll from Tangled!

  59. April Clark Trent says

    A puppy, a wii, several different barbies and barbie items, games for her ds, and playful pup cookie is on her list as well!

  60. Amanda F. says

    My 5 year old daughter has a love/obsession for any and all things animals, and she always includes them on her Christmas and Birthday lists. I just recently stumbled upon FurReal, so cute and perfect for her.

  61. Krystal says

    My daughter really does want a puppy this year for Christmas. Unfortunately for her, she is not getting one. She loves Fur Real pets and stuffed animals though, so that is what is on her list as a backup. She would adore this puppy!!

  62. Hema says

    My almost 6 yr old has asked for Lalaloopsy and has settled for a fur real puppy instead of the real thing lol (her best friend recently got a puppy). I’ve already got her the laloopsy and am keeping my fingers crossed for the puppy! She would be thrilled!

  63. Jill Myrick says

    My son is asking for a scooter this year and my daughter loves any type of doll or stuffed animal. I am sure that she would love the FurReal Pup as the more realistic the better for her.


  64. Alicia Anderson says

    OMG, The family that I’m sponsoring for Xmas has a little 6 year old and her wish toy is a Fur Real friend puppy. It’s tooo expensive for me to purchase but you bet I’m going to try and win this giveaway for her.

  65. Meagn Parsons says

    I love how the dog interacts with the child. My daughter would have hours of enjoyment with cookie! My daughter wants the fur real kitty, monster hight dolls, clothing for her dolls, lipgloss and fingernail polish. My son wants thomas the train stuff, hotwheels, tonka trucks, ect.

  66. Lisa Garner says

    My youngest daughter wants a new doll, my middle son wants a PSP, my oldest son wants a bike and my teenage daughter wants clothes and headphone.

  67. says
