We discovered the world of Scruff-a-Luvs on Little E’s third birthday. I spotted the range when we were looking around our local toy store for her gifts. The first thing that caught my attention was the surprise element. She would either discover a cat, dog, or bunny in the matted scruffy ball of fur. She loves cats so I knew the toy would be a hit if she discovered a cat. But what really caught my attention is the fact that a percentage of each Scruff-a-Luv sold goes to the RSPCA. This partnership has raised £110,000 so far!

What Are Scruff-a-Luvs?
Scruff-a-Luv’s are animals that you can rescue from the Rescue Centre. They arrive in their carry case as a matted scruffy ball of fur. You then transform them from scruffy to fluffy. With lots of love and care. Washing, drying, and grooming them will reveal which Scruff-a-Luv you have rescued. The more you dry and brush your Scruff-a-Luv, the fluffier they become. They can become your Furry Friend Forever.
The New Collection
This spring there are some new furry friends in the rescue centre. These include limited-edition Scruff-a-Luvs Spring Babies and Scruff-a-Luvs Jungle and a new series of Scruff-a-Luvs Friends. Little E was sent a lovely bundle of the new spring collection to review.
Scruff-a-Luvs Friends Ombre
The new Friends series have beautiful rainbow ombre fur and come with a special hair clip which you can use to help style their fur. In this series, you can discover either a dog, cat, or a rare pony inside the matted scruffy ball of fur.
Little E had lots of fun washing the matted scruffy ball of fur. She couldn’t wait to discover which pet she would find inside.
She is one very lucky little girl as she rescued the pet she wanted, the rare pony!
The below video shows us unboxing, washing, drying, and grooming Little E’s pony.
Limited Edition Scruff-a-Luvs Jungle
The new limited edition jungle series come wrapped in vine leaves. In this series, you can discover either a monkey, a lion, or a parrot inside the matted scruffy ball of fur. Each pet comes with patterned ears, or wings if you rescue the parrot. They also come with a special hair clip.
Little E hoped that she would rescue a parrot. She is very lucky as she did find a parrot inside the matted scruffy ball of fur.
The below video shows us unboxing, washing, drying, and grooming Little E’s parrot.
These mini surprise pets come in their very own pet carrier and each one comes with their own comb. No water is required to rescue these mini pets. You just need to rub and comb their fur.
In the babies’ collection, there are 21 surprise pets to collect. This includes 9 new species and 3 ultra-rare characters.
As always Little E hoped she would rescue a cat from the babies’ collection. She wasn’t lucky with her request with this surprise range but she did discover the Bear from Rainbow Meadows and the ultra-rare Panda from Starlight Secret Gardens.
The below video shows us unboxing the Scruff-a-Luvs Babies.
Limited Edition Scruff-a-Luvs Spring Babies
As well as the Babies you can now collect Limited Edition Scruff-a-Luvs Spring Babies. Hidden inside the pet carries you will either discover a lamb, a duckling, or a bunny. Little E was sent two of the Limited Edition Babies to open, she found two lambs inside. She calls them her twins.

How Did We Make Our Scruff-a-Luvs So Fluffy?
When we purchased the Scruff-a-Luv for Little E’s first birthday our rescued pet didn’t come out as fluffy as we were expecting him too. During a toy fair visit last year I stopped at the Scruff-a-Luvs stand and found out a good tip. I was told to use a bigger hairbrush first and then the included brush or comb to really fluff up your rescued pet. This really did help and we love how fluffy our pets are now.
What Does Little E Love About This Range?
Little E loves the whole rescuing process of the pets. She loves washing them and seeing the balls of matted fur turn into an animal.
The babies were something new for her to discover. Little E has always loved the smaller surprise toys and these are just that. She loves that she can clip the animals onto her book bag. She also loves that they come in their own little pet carrier.
What Do I Love About This Range?
For me the best thing about the Scruff-a-Luvs is they partner with the RSPCA to help real rescue animals find new homes. The way you wash and groom the rescued pets must recreate how the RSPCA finds some of the animals.
I love how the collection has expanded over the years to include different animals to rescue and reveal. I also wasn’t expecting the parrot in the Jungle collection to be as big as it was.
The babies are also a great addition. They have a great size of pets to collect. I think they will make perfect birthday gifts for Little E’s school friends
