If you've read my blog for any length of time, then I'm sure you know that I have an addiction to squeaky toys. I love squeaky toys. I live for squeaky toys. I obsess over squeaky toys. Squeaky toys are my favorite things in the entire world.
The only problem with my addiction (besides Mom tripping over my toys all the time, of course), is the fact that toys cost money. Mom says I'm going to have to get a job to fund my toy "problem."
Well after much thought, I've determined the perfect line of work for me. Restaurants and movies have people review them, right? So why not toys? That's right...I'm going to be a professional dog toy reviewer!
And so now for your reading pleasure, and so that I can practice my skills, here's my very first Dog Toy Review...
Toy Review: Giant Squirrel
Isn't that a huge squirrel toy? It's actually called "Kyjen Real Animal Long Body Squeaker Mat - Squirrel" and it's for sale over at DogToys.com. I think "Giant Squirrel" fits, though. It's HUGE!
This squirrel has TWELVE squeakers in the body and a loud grunter in the tail. (Mom says the grunter is REALLY loud.) If you know me, you know I'm all about "loud."
I pulled the giant squirrel out of the box and took off with it before Mom could even take the tags off. It was a huge hit, right from the start.
I love the squeakers, of course, but my favorite part about the Giant Squirrel is its fur. I love to pluck fur!
Mom says I've already plucked enough fur off of the squirrel to make an entire new toy. Ta dah!
Here's some of my plucking action via video. The video stops kinda abruptly 'cause Mom had to pull squirrel fur out of my mouth before I swallowed it.
With all of those squeakers and the grunter, too, it's also a great toy to squeak by rolling on it.
And it rates high for its "pillow" quality for napping...
So overall I have to say that the Giant Squirrel is off the charts when it comes to pluckability and squeaking. It's great for playing fetch with, too, even though it's a little big for me.
The downsides? Not many! I did manage to pluck hard enough to rip open the side of the squirrel. Mom says she can fix it, though. And I did break the grunter in the tail already. Mom says she will not fix that...without getting earplugs first, at least...
The Official Buttons Rating: Four Paws ('cause I only have four)
