Scruff-A-Luvs Family – Rescue Pet Soft Toy Review

*Ad-gifted – We received the Scruff-A-Luvs Family in exchange for this post. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

When I first saw a Scuff-a-Luv I thought they were adorable little things. So we couldn’t wait to explore one of the Scruff-a-luvs family we got sent. Would we rescue a dog or cat family, with twins or rare triplets? All will be revealed!

Firstly here is a little about the Scruff-a-luvs family surprise rescue pet soft toy:

What Is a Scruff-a-Luvs?

How would I describe a Scruff-a-Luvs? Well, it’s a ball of matted fur, with a little pair of beady eyes showing. To reveal your furry friend you need to give them a wash, towel dry and a blow-dry. Then a good brush.

How To Care For Your Scruff-a-Luvs

Your Scruff-a-Luvs will come to you in a big ball of matted fur. You will need to wash it in lukewarm water, I suggest the sink or a washing up bowl. We washed ours in some of the girl’s gentle bubble bath, then rinsed thoroughly after.

Towel drying is next up to dry off any excess water, then blow dry on a low heat setting. It took us around 30 minutes to wash a dry, although I would say in total it’s about 24 hours for the Scruff-a-luvs to be completely bone dry.

A brush is supplied to help you groom your pet. We used one of my wide bristle brushes as well.

What We Think

Aww, it was a huge amount of fun unzipping the box to see what was hidden inside. The box design is fun, it can also be used as a pet bed for your family. Straight away inside you come across your Scruff-a-Luvs which has her babies tucked away inside her matted fur that you can’t see.

Then you have the 10 surprises to open. In ours, I was a little disappointed with the packaging as it wasn’t quite aligned so some of the surprises escaped. We had no surprise behind door number 5 as the surprise was underneath the Scruff-a-Luvs. So I would say that the packaging could be better. My daughter thought she was robbed of a surprise!

One of our favourite surprises was the birth certificate. You can add the name you wish and if you peel back the tab you can see when your’s was born. A cute touch.

However, the whole concept of the Scruff-a-Luvs family is cute. The excitement of who is hiding with mummy scruff is brilliant for kids. They have to work cleaning the scruff up to earn the surprise of what babies they have. We received twin boy kittens, as mummy is a cat once we cleaned her up! Mummy Scruff-a-Luv sparkles when she’s groomed once she was fully cleaned up.

The instructions were brilliant. Easy to follow and put into simple steps.

The Scruff-a-Luvs family makes a wonderful gift for children, with hours of fun and I would be recommending this to everyone for Christmas. It’s fun finding out if you have girl or boy twins or one of each! Of course, finding triplets is rare. Just rub the hearts on their tummy’s to reveal.

Did you know that for every Scruff-a-Luvs family adopted, Scruff-a-Luvs will donate part of the proceeds to the RSPCA to help real animals find their fur-ever homes. What a lovely thing to do.
