    Promising review: "Daisy loves it. I love that it’s a natural wood color and not bright plastic which clashed with my decor. It was easy to put together as well." —Amy Furlong

    2. A pack of pet-safe tennis balls in a bright purple hue so you can kick basic tennis balls to the curb for something more your vibe.

    Wild One

    Promising review: "These are very nice balls. My dogs love balls, I on the other hand am not a big fan of most. These do not squeak, which I LOVE. I also love that they are made in the USA and are made of dog friendly materials. I don't think my dogs care what color they are, but not jarring to my human eye. When new balls are needed I will return and buy these." —Laurel T.

    Promising review: "I finally caved and bought this set. It's super cute and I'm surprised by how much my two cats like these toys. They like to bat around the olives and figs, and then bunny-kick the wine bottles. So far everything has held up well and the toys seem very well-made!" —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. A plush cactus toy that's the least bit prickly. It's so cute they'll be ~stuck~ on it for hours.

    In the before and after above, it took three puppies with razor-sharp teeth two months to even start tearing through the first plush layer.

    Promising review: "Bought one for my mom’s 'super chewer' and one for our corgi. They have become the favored toys for both dogs! While the super chewer is working on destroying his, it’s been two to three weeks and the outer cover is still intact. Meanwhile, the corgi loves fetching his." —Meghan S.

    Promising review: "This item arrived very quickly. It is the second ZippyPaws toy I have ordered. The reason I ordered a second is because the quality of the first one (different style) was so excellent. We have a young, small dog, who had chewed through almost all of his regular squeak toys. These are still holding up without the squeakers breaking or holes being chewed through. Excellent product. My daughter ordered a different style for her pup!" —pmh51

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    Promising review: "Our male adult cat loves it. He kept scratching couches and bed frames so this has helped. We got the medium size and it was perfect, the bigger size may good good for a very large cat. The little ball is entertaining. The cactus is only stiff in the middle/bases, the little arms aren't stiff, they are soft and floppy but the cat seems to like biting and flopping them around anyways." —Abigail

    Reviewer's dog chewing on the toy

    Promising review: "I got this a few months ago and I was just about as excited as my dog was. My dog likes to chew through her toys within 24 hours and pull out the squeaky things. This is the first stuffed one she hasn't ripped apart. It's now her favorite toy and it's the first thing she grabs when we say 'go get your toy.' Like owner, like dog. The squeaker is broken now...but everything else is nicely intact and I even ran it through the washing machine. It's a must-buy for kicks but also good playtime." –Melanie H.

She carries the squirrels around with her (very cute). All the pieces have held together really well and all the squeakers still work." —Kylie

    It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple of times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

Normally she sticks with a toy for about 10 minutes before returning to a nap." —Meg

They're super cute – a great size for her to roll around and play with. With these being so plushy and soft I only worry about how quickly she’ll be able to pull them apart in the long run, but I suppose that’s why they come six to a pack.
