McKenna's Dog Item# W0744 Price: $24 Grade - D
I examined McKenna's puppy, Cooper, pretty thoroughly at the Dallas store yesterday, as I usually like the dogs and had toyed with the idea of getting him.
I thought he was really cute in the website photos, but supposedly, he's poseable and I ended up feeling pretty disappointed with him, especially for the price. The top of his body is plush, like Sprocket or Kanani's dog. I was expecting him to be like Talto, with wires to help him hold poses, but he doesn't have that. This dog's legs are filled with some sort of plastic beading material (think beanbag, but not as big as beans) that really don't do much but flop around.
None of the dogs I handled wanted to stand up at all (I checked out all of the display dogs, as well as one in a box in case it was a malady that was limited to the display doggies); The front legs would stay straight, but the back legs kept folding under. That caused the dog to keep flopping down into a seated position and I couldn't get one of them to stand up for more than a few seconds.
As I said, I was pretty disappointed and did not purchase him.
Images: They're from the display and are kind of bad, but you get an idea of what I'm referring to:
His leash is the same as Sprocket's, only a different color, and it isn't removable.
