So I was contacted by Allison Macalik and asked if I would be willing to review some of the new dog toys being introduced by PetSmart. And I said sure!
I was sent a selection of toys from their new Toys R Us Pets Collection.
The toys I was sent were cute, but not the kind of toys Jen would typically choose for me.
I destroyed the Vinyl Tire and Rope Animal right away. SCORE! The Pets Patterned Body Canvas Caterpillar was not far behind.
When I posted the news on Twitter, I was sent a different toy- the Double Loop Tennis Ball/ Tug Rope Toy.
So, did I like the toys? Well, to be honest, yes.
The Pets Dumbell Treat was a favorite, especially when Jen put kibble inside.
But the cloth squeaky toys? I loved them, but Jen would never buy those for me. In addition to being impractical (as in quickly destroyed), they are unsafe. I almost ate one of the squeakers. If you DO let your dogs play with toys like these, they should always be supervised.
Surprisingly, this was my favorite.
This is the Wacky Water Bottle Cruncher. And this pic was taken last night, two weeks after I got the toy. Notice that I haven’t torn the ears off or the eyeballs. Here’s a video of me playing with the bottle cover toy.
The plastic bottle inside can be replaced (I’ve already replaced once), and the cover can be washed. As you can see, this toy is ready for that.
The ball/rope toy is durable, and I enjoy playing catch with it. Jen tried to video me, but that didn’t work too good. Kinda hard for humans to video and play at the same time.
So the toys are going to be in PetSmart soon. Check them out!
