Looking for a fun game for the kid who keeps asking for a pet? Nintendogs & Cats Golden Retriever for 3DS is a great gift idea. Your kiddo will get to have all the fun, including picking out their pet, naming their pet, petting their pet and all the responsibilities of walking, washing, feeding and bathing their pet.
Both my 6 year old and 4 year old have a fun time playing this game, I did make them pick out a name for their pet together and it took them for ever to agree on a name but eventually picked the name fluffy:) It is easy for them to navigate and since they both want us to get a dog they keep telling me that I should let them because they can take care of their dog in the game. Of course my daughter wants to have her dog be in competitions so she can earn money to buy things for her dog. My 21 month old really can not play it but she loves watching the other 2 play and knows how to pet the dog and gets all excited when she sees the kids playing it and then pets the dog too.
You can buy Nintendogs and Cats Golden Retriever for Nintendo 3DS on Amazon for around $30, way cheaper then getting a real pet and totally worth it for the fun my kids have playing it 🙂
