About Boofle: Boofle’s Story Grandad’s woolly cardy has seen better days, it was still soft and cosy, but a little bit frayed. There were holes in the elbows and just one button remained, but from this, Nanny was sure something else could be made. So she started to sew on that cold winter’s night, and Boofle was born, much to the children’s delight. Boofle was all that a snugglesome pup should be, loveable and cuddly and a best friend to you and me. Boofle is there whatever the celebration, with lots of lovely Greeting Cards and gorgeous Gift Dressings to choose from, along with Gift and Plush collections you are sure to find the perfect Boofle card and gift for all occasions!
Review: I have to be cruel to be kind here. Boofle’s Home is an interactive VR experience of a branded toy called ‘Boofle’ and its failing YouTube channel. Its aimed at the little ones and this cute little adventure is just about as child-friendly as they come. There are butterfly chasing and a lot of Boffle talking and dare I say it looks pretty good! My biggest problem is that ‘Boofle’ is aimed at very young kids, maybe no older than 5 or 6 and VR is not made for little ones of that age. In fact, many VR headsets won’t have the IPD for a child so small meaning they can’t even use a VR headset at that age! Well, at least it is free so you can check it out, but personally, I just feel it is nice, but kind of pointless.
