In fact, it's long been a hit with all of them. I can certainly attest to that after collecting dozens of LITTLEST PET SHOP dolls accidentally left behind on my deck and in the sandbox many a time.
The toys are so popular that there's even a bit of a cult following on YouTube. Here is a really cute one I found, complete with music from ABBA:
And even a LITTLEST PET SHOP wedding:

Natalie recently had the privilege of reviewing several products from the LITTLEST PET SHOP line and they were all a big hit with her:
The best part about this pen is that it's several toys in one. Not only can your child write with it, but there is also a removable TEENIEST TINIEST PET on top as well as a digital, on-screen pet that your child can "brush," "feed" and play games with. The pen comes with sticker sheets and paper for your child to write on as an added bonus. Natalie has always been into stationery for some reason so she loves writing with the pen as much as she loves playing with the pets.
How adorable are these pets? Natalie's are always wet as she constantly plays with them in the bathtub. The wave accessory comes with the two pets.
So cute! Natalie is a huge dog lover so these are two of her favorite pets. Notice the two girly skirts that come with the dogs. A perfect touch!
Now this one really wowed Natalie. She feels so grown up with her own PDA. And what I love most about it is that it actually made her excited about math. "Mom!" she said to me. "I can practice my multiplication tables on this!" Doesn't get much better than that.
There are so many more fabulous features to this planner that I'm going to list the description from the site:
"Use the touch screen and stylus pen to care for your new digital pet, feeding, washing and even brushing him! Spend the day doing some virtual shopping together and pick out hats, hair accessories and shoes so you can dress your four-legged friend! Play games and plan all kinds of pet-lovin’ activities! Snap a picture at your pet’s photo shoot!
Think he might be hungry? Choose some food to feed him! And with all the fun you’re sure to have, you’ll need to keep track of your plans. You can also use your digital planner as an address book, a calendar for storing special dates or as a calculator! Take your planner with you when you’re on the go. With more than twenty-five on-screen games and activities, your calendar is sure to be chock full – of fun!"
Can you believe they can pack that much fun into one little toy? I actually have to pull Natalie away from it at times because she's on it SO much.
Here's another toy that has more to it than meets the eye. In addition to the adorable, plush pet, there is a code hidden under its color that lets your child access the virtual world of VIP pets on the LITTLEST PET SHOP web site.
There, your child will find games, activities and fun surprises.
