The Ugglys Pet Shop Dirty Dog Wash Van Review

The children for some strange reason love the Ugglys range of toys. Me- I’m not so sure although I have to admit that they kind of grow on you.

The dogs are quite adorable under all that slime. 🙂

We were sent an opportunity to review  The Ugglys Pet Shop Dirty Dog Wash Van. While it didn’t really sound up my street, I knew the kids would love it. How right I was!

We received the Uggly’s Pet Shop Van and two packs of figures.


The van comes with an ugly St. Bernard which is actually quite sweet. It is a dirty van – in a nice kind of way – if there is one!

It makes the most gross sounds from barping to burping and all sorts of other sounds that I tell my children not to make!! 😉

There are also barking sounds and a loud horn that can get quite annoying if children keep pushing it back and forth – perfect for unwanted guests. I quite love it!


The van comes with a toilet, a squelchy bath and a ugly monitor. Put the dog on the toilet and well….there are obviously appropriate sounds to go along with it.

Put him in the bath and there is a squelching sort of gloopy sound.

And put him on the Ugly Meter and he will definitely get the pointer to the end of the scale.


It is a Character product so it is well made and of a good quality. The dogs are fun and can be used in other play settings too. Perfect for play on its own, imaginative play and chasing people away. It has some really ugly dogs and makes gross sounds.

But at the end of it all – the kids love it, their friends who come over want one and it is quite handy in some situations (with guests – as above?)

What’s not to like?


Priced at £19.99 it is good value for money especially when the kids enjoy playing with it.
