Doggie, Doggie, Climb Up The Stairs



This is one of the toy which I have been looking around for so long but couldn’t seems to get one. I am thinking maybe Angel might like it but I couldn’t find the penguins ones which I was looking for until I saw this doggie version which is even better (coz Angel loves puppies) at a toy shop and it was the last unit hiding at the back of the store! So despite they were selling it quite pricey, I happily grab it without any hesitation as I really liked it plus I might as well get it before I totally forgot all about it or Angel has outgrown the stage of playing with this kind of toy :).

Does she like it? Actually she was horrifed to see the puppies moving up the stairs at the very beginning and insisted that her grandma stay there and play it ‘for’ her. But after a few days of ‘warming up’ with grandma (yes, again …… poor grandma), she is more ok with it and dare to touch the doggie and make them slide down the track when I did not turn on the batteries power for her.

I have came across sometimes back in a blog that a mommy is also looking for a wooden piano (those traditional type) which we use to play way back then and she is willing to pay a high price in order to get a similar aged piano for her little kid too, maybe due to some sentimental value or sweet memories she has …… actually if possible, I would love to get one of the sports car racing track for Angel too as that’s one of my favourite toy way back then so that ‘WE’ (me and Angel) could play together …… actually did you have any sentimental toys which you used to love and would like your little ones have the same thing as well?

They did have this kind of toy nowadays? That's my childhood favourite toy.. That time it was still the penguins.. Now they have puppies as well? You bought it at KL? Was it from Toys R Us? I can't imagine they still have this kind of toy. I really enjoyed playing this last time...

Angel needs time to warm-up with the toy that's why. Will she grab the puppies and throw them away? I think Ashton will do that.... and dismantle the whole 'stairs'....

Sorry for asking so many questions.. I'm so excited...

MommyAngel said...

Mery, thanks .... I am glad that she seems to enjoy playing with it now :)

Esmeralda, ya ..... That’s why it took me so long to find one these days and the quality also not bad leh. You like to play with it too?? Oh my .... Me too!! Ya, last time it’s only penguins but I can find the penguin no more .....

- oh no, I didn’t bought it from Toy R Us, I got it from a small shop here in Klang selling chap-pah-lang toys and kids bike, cars, etc, didn’t even notice the shop name coz we were walking pass by this shop after having our lunch then I went in to look for the bike then saw this pack of toy, box was torn and dirty lying at the back of the shelf .... Hahahaha.

- luckily until now she still hasn’t throwing the doggies around as yet la coz I always keep an eye on her afraid that the doggie’s wheel will came off or anything coz the doggie’s size is very small and they can get into a kids mouth pretty easily I think .....

MommyAngel said...

Esmeralda, I will keep an eye for you for this toy too la, will tell you if I ever spotted another one ok?

Mummy Gwen said...

I think I saw the penguins one at Sunway Pyramid. One of those small stall. But that time I saw one of the penguins is a bit cacat..haha..always stuck at the bottom of the staircase..hehe. Gwen was attracted to one jumping ball toy..hehe. I think next time I'll get for her. :P

LittleLamb said...

Wonderful Life said...

I also looking for this kind of toy too with penguins like shown in one of the baby einstein shows.

Looking back, I have the little wooden piano. Also, I like those fishing toy... whereby the little fishes pop up and opens it's mouth and we use the bait for the fishes to bite it. :)

Esmeralda said...

Yes I love this kind of toy so much... Now with the puppies more cuter!

Haha.. if I were you when I saw the box torn and so dirty, I would ask them for much more discounts.. hehehe...

Thanks a lot for your help in finding them ya...

Mummy In Vain said...

actually i can say i dun have any sentimental toys which i want to share with my kids. but, i do have some interest which unachievable and hope that my kids can pour their interest in it..... :)

Ping said...

New toy again! Of course Angel is super enjoy with this new toy!

Well for my daughter i would like to get her a wood piano which i can't it till now. But hope i able to find it one day and my girl sure love it ;p

MommyAngel said...

Mummy Gwen, Gwen is interested in a jumping ball toy? What’s that? If you got it then post up and show us ya :) Sounds fun coz my Angel loves balls a lot!!!

Rachel, the sport car racing track is just those normal ones where you build the tract yourself and then put the car on it and use your remote to control the speed of the car. I think now they have come out a lot of version which is much more interesting and more function too.

Doreen, Baby Einstein show this toy too?? Oh … I never own a little wooden piano coz I have those adults one instead at the age of 4 so no fun at all!!! Oh …. I know those fishing toy, but I hardly find a good one coz those cheap one won’t last long for little Angel. I love to play those during my childhood days too :)

Esmeralda, I did asked for discount but the lady boss seems don’t really want to sell her stuffs or something like that, no wonder no business la, hahahaha.

Merryn, Hungry hungry hippo??? I never know how hippo looks like until I was very ‘old’, hahaha ….. is the toy fun to play with? I think if you look harder (in those old toy shop), you would be able to find it.

PeiWun, hahahahaha …… but this doggie thing more for girls hor, don’t you think so?

Irene, oh … good luck then!! I have been searching for so long for this too :)

Jess, yup …. China has monopolized the toy market I think but their quality …. Sigh!!! Oh, Jonker street Melaka ah? Thanks for the info dear!!

Mummy In Vain, oh … unachievable interest? What interest? Drawings? Piano lessons? I think it’s good and hope your kids will share the same interest that you once have and still have ya :) I hope my Angel will love to play piano as well when she is much older :)

YenPing, Oh ….. line Jess said, can find it in Jonker Street Melaka. If you are going there then you can go and have a look. Who knows you might find 1 there, good luck!!

the little prince said...

Nice new toy!!

Which part of Klang huh? I am staying at Klang but not really familiar but can ask my in-law looking for it!! :-)

MommyAngel said...

Yugene, I also don't know how to say, you know there are a lot of old shop opposite the Parkson in Klang??? There is 1 toy shop there at the back of the lane near the kopitiam (not directly facing the road one ..... I seldom go there too but that day just walk pass by but mind you, it's the final unit already leh coz I dig it out from the back of the pile of toy and the tau keh also told me I am lucky to find that, hahahaha .....

This is one of my favourite toys too. Actually my sister was the one who got the gift. Hers one is the penguin. I wonder where is it now? Hehe. I love the toy alot.
My nephew also has a similar toy, but with sound when is on. How about Angel's one?
- So when Angel play it, you did not on the batt for her? Good la, save the batt mah. hehe.
- Sport car racing track? How is it looked like? Woww..last time you love to play with cars ya?
- When I was small, I seldom play with toys. So I think I dont have any sentimental toys.

the little prince said...

Alamak, you sapu the last unit!! :-)

Is ok, will try to look again!!

MommyAngel said...

HN, oh … you found your wooden toy dog? Lucky you!!! So I hope Sethy will enjoy his new toy, does he like it?

JT, oh …. When I turn on it really have a very noisy music and sound and can’t control the volume as well, maybe I really need to stick a tape on the speaker as to lower down the voice a bit :)
- I tried not to on the toy for her coz it’s noisy, hehehe …..
- How to describe ah the racing tract, you have to build the track into your own design then remote control the car on the tract ….. I will show you when I found the toy ya :) Yes, I love remote control cars a lot when I was younger and still is, hehehe
- You said you seldom play with toys then what you do? Reading books / catching fish / watching TV?

Yugene, hope you will find your toy soon ya. Good luck!

Kristie said...

i like these simple toys too... i also love the fishing toy where the fishes will open and close the mouths and u have to fish them using a rod :)

Julie said...

Those days it was penguin. I wanted to buy this for Jonathan too but his Daddy rejected. But I guess Jonathan will pick up the penguin and will not let it climb the stairs. Haha...

MommyAngel said...

Kristie, oh ... I love ths fishing game too!! I also bought one for Angel but still keep in the cupboard. I will let her play with that once she gets tired of this doggie toy first :) That one is really a hit when I was still a kid .... oh ... I miss that moment so much!!!

Julie, why daddy rejects? I think it's fun!! I was searching high and low for that. Daddy rejects because it's more a girl's toy???

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

The one that you bought also got loud noise when being on ya? Luckily Angel did not asked you to on it, or else really noisy leh.
- I also did the same thing to some of Sarah's toy that has loud volume. I used the celophone tape and tape it and it worked!
- I think I got what you desribed about your fav toys, but I have seen it here. Hope you can find it some day.
- Oo..you like remote control cars alot ya? So did you collect any of them?
- When I was a kid, normally we just play masak masak but not with the artificial kitchen set. We used those utensils that used in the kitchen to cook under FIRE. Can you imagine the fun of it, and also the danger :-)

Serene said...

I do not have any sentimental toys. But hubby yes, he also tends to buy the racing car for Xixi, so they can play together.. heheh =) I also play penguin "climbing staircase" during at my childhood days, but seems difficult to find it nowadays.

MommyAngel said...

JT, I don’t collect those remote control cars but I love to play with them :) Wah … you parents actually allow you to play with the real utensils and put them onto the stove as well ah? Hahahaha …. That must be fun!! Although a bit dangerous la but look at you, you are still in 1 piece :)

Serene, hahaha …. Your hubby is such a nice daddy, I do think that racing cars are fun to play with leh!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Oo..you like to play with remote ctrl cars, I thought you like to collect them. I did told my husband that you like to play with cars, then you know what he said :" all her hobbies are very "boyish" hor. Like fishing lah and now playing with cars", hehe.
- Yea, I also wondering now why did my mom letting me to play with REAL masak-masak. Actually we did not cook on the stove but we just built our own "stove" by using brick and rock. Then light up the fire underneath. Hehe.

MommyAngel said...

JT, nowadays I seldom collect things already because it can be so addicting :) Ya, I can be quite boyish actually but I love Hello Kitty very much! (Except hello kitty soft toy la :D)

But I think last time we are more ‘free’ to do whatever we wanted to do as a kid la, hahahaha …. Miss those time actually

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

You like Hello Kitty? Hmm...this is another cartoon that I dislike.

MommyAngel said...

JT, really ah? Hahahaha ... actually I hate Hello Kitty as well before this but since I start fall in love with Bento, I think Hello Kitty is the cutest animal on earth coz other then that, it's winnie the pooh which Angel doesn't really fancy at this moment. Kitty is more girly :)
