Yakety Smackety Dawg Review (Hallmark)

Yakety Smackety Dawg
What It Is

If you're looking for a unique, different, and funny Valentine's Day gift for a loved one, Yakety Smackety Dawg is a really cute option. This electronic and soft dog sings a parody of the song "Yakety Yak", originally from the 1950s. Press the dog's foot to see the dog open its mouth and start singing. At the end of the song, instead of saying "Don't talk back" like in the original, this dog says, "Kiss me back."

Is It Fun?

This is a really fun toy that you'll love watching sing over and over again. It makes a great alternative to giving chocolate or candy for Valentine's Day.

Who It’s For

Hallmark says this toy is for all ages, however, we think you should wait to let a child play with this alone until he or she is 2 or 3 years old. Also, because the original song is an older one, it's something that older people might be more familiar with.

What To Be Aware Of

This toy comes with three AA batteries for the in-store try-me features. It's recommended that you replace them before you play for best results.
