Because you’re not getting them an actual dog for Christmas, but you can totally compromise by adding Scruff-a-Luvs under the tree this holiday season. These new electronic Scruff-a-Luvs “Real Rescue” pets are totally going to be one of the top ranked toys for this Christmas.
We’ve seen a ton of toys cross our desks this year. And, trust us, the promotions started early (hello 4th of July!). We have to admit we’re kind of digging these cute little balls of matted fur, more commonly known as Scruff a Luvs. If you don’t know what they are, well, your kids surely do and most likely they’re already in process of adding it to their “Letter of Demands” for Santa as we speak. These brand new interactive electronic pets will most likely sell out as we get closer to the holidays. Here’s the deal with these colorful cuties.
What Actually Are Scruff-a-Luvs Real Rescue?!
What might look like just a colorful ball of fur is, well, sort of correct. They’re mystery pets that your kids won’t know exactly what they are until they open them up and take care of them. There are currently two different ones you can get. There’s a cute little puppy and a precious little kitten. Collect them all if you can (insert eye-roll here)! Even better, with these new electronic interactive fur balls:
- They come equipped with more than 35 different lifelike motions, sounds, and interactions.
- When you take them out of the box they’ll be a matted ball of fur and will actually shake and whimper until you pick them up and start taking care of them.
- Real Rescue pets will also bark or meow, need to be fed, will hiccup, burp, and more. The best part? No poop.
When is the Official Release Date?
You’ll have to wait a bit longer, but they’ll officially be released on October 1, 2019. That’s just in time for the upcoming holidays so be sure to grab them while you can because, if not, you’re likely to have to buy them off of eBay for 10x the amount!
Can you Pre Order Them?
Right now they’re not up for pre-order, but typically this will happen one to two months prior to the release date so we’re guessing (at this point) you’ll be able to pre order them by August 1, 2019. Check back here because we’ll update it once we know more!
What’s the Price Going to Be?
These are a bit more than previous versions, but mainly because they’re totally interactive. The suggested retail price is $39.99.

How Do You Take Care of Them?
Taking care of them is actually pretty easy and part of how you figure out which one you got (unless you want to keep it a fur ball with eyes, well, we’re not judging).
- First you bathe them by placing them in water (try the tub, the sink, or even a large bowl). Don’t worry they know how to hold their breath!
- Next, take them out of the water, squeeze them out, towel dry them, and then use a blow dryer to make them pretty much come to life. We recommend also brushing them slowly while they’re being blow-dried.
- Now they’re ready to be fully brushed! We recommend using a large hair brush so that it really gets in there!
- Finally, add their collar, their special hair clip and you’re good to go!
