From the website: "Joss loves to take her pup, Murph, with her to Dog Beach. This plush bulldog has brown-and-white fur, sweet brown eyes, and her own removable life jacket to keep her safe in the waves."
Although I wish that Murph was a little bit cheaper, I think she is adorable! She is a plush dog like most of the GOTY pets (such as Nicki's dog, Sprocket).
Side view of Murph with her life vest on (and the rediculously long tag).
The vest is removable and velcros at the bottom.
Murph has a purple ribbon collar attached to her. Unlike Sprocket, there is no tag attached to the collar.
Murph arrives with her pink tongue sticking out. A nice feature about her mouth is that you can actually fold the tongue up to hide it if you want to.
Murph is so cute and a great addition to Joss's collection! She's soft and cuddly and has a sweet little face.
Felicityfan85 already wrote a great review of Murph so I haven’t felt the need to add anything, but I did get her out today so I’ll a few more photos.
I agree that she’s a really cute addition to Joss’s collection (if perhaps a little overpriced). I love the wrinkles on her back, and how her tongue can either fold up or hang out.
Cutie patootie wrinkles:
Such an adorable face! The inside of her ears sometimes look like they have a hint of lavender, but I think it’s just how the brown comes through the thin white fabric there.
It can be hard to see Murph’s mouth under those jowls! Her tongue is tucked in here. I like the little black “whisker” dots!
The life vest is well made. It’s got the dark lavender/grey straps, handle, and lining, and a bright orange background for Joss’s ocean logo. Here are some shots of its outside and interior, and of Murph wearing it:
And Joss and Murph together ❤️:
I guess if I had to give this set a grade, it would probably be a B. I like Murph and I think that she and her life vest are cute and well made. The target age might like playing with Murph and having her ride the surfboard. I read the books a long time ago and remember wishing there were a skateboard for Murph, and maybe something else like a leash or food bowls for her would also add to the play value. But still, a very cute set as is.
