Promising review: "Our puppy lives to destroy. Every toy we have gotten her lays shredded in indistinguishable ruins with the exception of this one little Squirrel House. We made bets on how long it would last – 15 seconds being the favorite choice. She doesn't waste time searching out the squirrels in the house. No, she just shakes the house with her head vigorously and the squirrels go flying. This is her favorite toy. She carries the squirrels around like they're her babies. Her favorite pull toy is the squirrel house and it's held up better than any toy actually made to be a pulI toy. I really, really don't get it – but this is the Samsonite of all dog toys." – In the Boonies

towered trackball toy to activate a cat's natural hunting instincts, which means they'll stop pouncing on random items around the house and focus on playing with this toy instead.
Promising review: "This item came exactly as described and on time. My first thought when I opened it was it looks kind of a like a baby toy. It is absolutely adorable and it has been the favorite toy since we got it. I have three cats, aged 5, 1, and 5 months. My oldest cat is not too playful usually, so I didn't think she would enjoy it. The first one to check it out was the youngest, who immediately began having the time of his life. He played with this toy for at least an hour straight! I noticed while he was playing with it, the oldest cat was watching very intently. Sure enough, as soon as the kitten walked away she was all over it. All of my cats love this, which I can't say about any of their other toys." – jjblh

A set of
squeaky plush toys that come in cute woodland animal designs and have three squeakers in each toy. It doesn't contain any stuffing, so if your dog gets a bit rough with it, you don't have to worry about fluff exploding all over your house.
Promising review: "My dog is only an aggressive chewer when it comes to treats. With her toys, she tends to be more of a medium chewer. This is my second purchase of these. The original purchase lasted my dog about six months. These are her favorite toys and she plays with them nearly every day. She eventually tries to get the squeakers out when she's in a chewing mood. I love that these toys have three squeakers in each of them as that gives her more use out of each toy. These seem durable enough... I don't have anything else to compare them to." – Constance Owens
classic Kong toy with a hollow center you can stuff with peanut butter or their favorite treat. Give this to them and sit back and relax while they spend hours getting every last morsel of food out of it.
Promising review: "Watch out rope toy, the Kong has become my dog's new favorite toy! Even when there's nothing inside of it, my dog loves playing with it! When I leave the house, I put some of the Kong peanut butter spread in there with a hard treat and it keeps him entertained and active while I'm away. Makes you feel a lot less guilty for leaving your dog alone." – Amazon Customer

ball launcher to take your game of fetch to the next level. And thanks to the handle, you'll never have to pick up a slobbery ball again!
Promising review: "My Jack Russell puppy's new favorite toy! He loves this! We use it at home and at the dog park. It is great for getting some of that puppy energy out. I purchased the hard rubber balls by Chuckit to go with it instead of the ball it comes with since he tries to pull all the fuzz off and I don't want him to swallow that. The hard rubber balls are also easy to clean when he tries to bury his treasure in the dirt – just rinse off under the hose or in sink and it is all clean! Great toy!" – K. Kelly
Price: $7.95 (originally $12.99)
Promising review: "My kitten loves this bed. Along with looking cute, it is incredibly soft. The fruit give extra support for her to lie on, and she loves to play with the fruit. The lemon and kiwi are her favorite to play with. It doubles as a bed and some toys. She took to this bed immediately, and she often won't leave it. It's also pretty flexible, so I can put it in her carrier for vet visits so she'll feel comfortable. At first I considered sewing in the fruit, but after seeing how much she enjoyed playing with them, I can't bring myself to do it. Everyone I show this bed to thinks it's the cutest thing ever, and I'm so glad to have found this." – Casandra B
Price: $27.99+ (available in two sizes)
willow-branch ball for your bunny to chew, nudge, and play with so they can keep themselves occupied while they're in their cage. It's made out of all natural materials, so you can rest assure they'll be safe as they nibble on it.
Promising review: "Bella, my rabbit, absolutely loves this toy. It is her favorite that I have ever given her. After she chews on it for a bit I will sneak in a yogurt treat or some dried papaya. It makes an excellent toy and is really stimulating because she has to work hard to get the treat out. She can be occupied with this for a while and is the perfect throw toy as well. I have had her for five years now and have purchased this numerous times. I 100% recommend this as such a basic and amazing toy/ treat!" – Dani_Bella
durable chew toy that will stand up to even the toughest of chompers. The toy also has multiple textures that massages your dog's gums as they play.
Promising review: "I don’t often write reviews but this is my absolute favorite toy for my dog (also his favorite toy, and he is a 90-lb rott mix, so definitely a ridiculously heavy chewer). He would chew on this for hours almost every day and it really held up. When I really need him to be preoccupied like when I need to leave him in his kennel, I’ll put some peanut butter or baby food in it, and sometimes freeze it so it’ll last extra long. Even when it started to rip recently, he couldn’t really chew the pieces off so he wasn’t able to actually eat the toy. Overall, this toy, for price and durability, is the best I’ve found in the two years of searching and countless toys he has eaten." – ross63
Price: $6.39 (available in two colors)
fish-shaped toy to keep your cat entertained for hours as it flips and flops around. It has a pouch to place catnip in so your cat will be attracted to this toy the second the box opens.
Promising review: "My cat Shadow almost grabbed this out of my hands. He loves his toys and this one has become a firm favorite. I thought it might frighten him at first because it does make quite a bit of noise. But, he was kicking it and pouncing on it as if it was alive. Don’t think the catnip enticed him really because he was so interested in the fact that it was moving, but what do I know, I am not a cat! Anyway, he played with it until the battery ran out and fishy needed to be juiced up. I also put this underneath his blankie and in the cat tunnel and it drives him crazy. He highly recommends it." – Shada Pup
Price: $11.99+ (available in four designs)
interactive toy that'll keep small pets like rabbits and chinchillas occupied while they search for treats hidden in the toy.
Promising review: "It is so much fun watching my rabbit figure out all the steps. Though when she first got it, she would get so frustrated! But now she hops right over when she sees it. One of her favorite toys." – Amazon Customer
Price: $20.43 (originally $26.99)
flexible dog flying disc your pup will pawsitively flip for as you toss it for them on trips to the park. It's also waterproof, so it's a great pool or beach toy.
Promising review: " To say that this is my dog's favorite toy would be some kind of understatement. Her attitude is some kind of hot throbbing passion. She can't stop barking when she even sees it. She repeatedly chases it, plunging through snow 3 ft. deep down the 100 ft. length of our driveway until I can't do it any more. Today she ran into the room because she heard it fall out of the cupboard onto the floor." – Lester H. Hunt
Price: $7.95 (available in four colors)
shreddable bird toy made out of soft pithy wood that your bird will squawking mad over. Watch in amazement as they occupy themselves with ripping this toy apart.
Promising review: "I get these for my two parakeets. This is hands-down their favorite chew toy. I have other toys that sit in there for days and they won’t touch it. Put one of these in there and they attack it. I have some last a week but more often they will strip it clean in two to four days." – Chris
Price: $8+ (available in three sizes)
behavioral aid toy with a heat pack and a "heartbeat" inside, which soothes puppies and helps them transition to their new home.
Promising review: "I am convinced that this adorable toy helped my puppy sleep through the night from her very first night home! Additionally, it makes her crate feel like a home, where she feels so cozy and it has really helped her love her crate and look forward to sleeping in it. AND, it’s her favorite toy! When she’s awake and alert, she loves pulling out her little snuggle puppy and carrying it around the house. This little snuggle puppy has made my transition – and that of my puppy – so wonderful in ways I did not even expect!! Highly recommend this as one of the best things you can do for your puppy." – Smart Researcher
Price: $39.95 (available in five colors)
collapsable cat tunnel that your feline friend will spend hours and hours running through. Even the laziest of cats will abandon their nap to sprint through these.
Promising review: "I purchased these tunnels for the Hill Country Humane Society where I volunteer. Dozens of kitties and adult cats are housed here for adoption. We keep the felines entertained with many little toys but the cat tunnels seem to be their favorite form of amusement and exercise. They love chasing each other through the tunnels and out the peep holes. They are a delight to watch. These tunnels are very colorful and sturdy and get a daily workout from a variety of feline breeds. I highly recommend these for anyone who loves their cats." – Dee
Price: $14.99 for two tunnels
cat scratcher pad with a ball and a mouse swatter, making it perfect for multi-cat households because it provides three fun-filled activities in just one toy!
Promising review: "This is now my cat’s favorite toy and my visiting grandchildren loved it too!! The cat will sit on the scratch pad to claim it, and he plays with it all the time and pretty much ignores his other toys." – ML Willis
Price: $22.98 (available in two colors)
tug-of-war toy that is flexible and durable, even as your dog digs their chompers into it and pulls as hard as they can!
Promising review: "LOVE this toy. Our puppy loooooooves to play tug so I was looking for something that had 'reach.' This has been awesome. She loves to play tug with it and she's always careful to grab wherever we're not holding it (if we're holding it on both ends she'll go for the middle). Can even play standing up. She's 12.5 lbs and she hasn't destroyed it yet after a couple of weeks. Her current favorite toy. Highly recommended." – Debbie Wilreker Price: $13.95+ (available in two sizes and three colors)
dog treat dispensing toy to mentally stimulate any dog who loves both playtime and treats. Even the most rambunctious dogs will slow down to try and get a treat out of this.
Promising review: "This treat ball has became one of my favorite dog toys as of yet. It is very effective at keeping your dog entertained and distracted from other possible material victims that may be destroyed by the vigor of a young dog. It is easy to use with a simple design, making for a straightforward filling, assembling, and cleaning process. With removable pieces (the yellow and blue), you can add or take away difficulty depending on your dog's particular skill level and the length of time you hope to entertain. Overall, this ball has became an important object in our house." – Christina
Price: $9.95+ (available in two sizes)
cat teaser toy for your cat to be endlessly entertained by, as you dangle the feather in front of them with a wand. They'll feel so accomplished once they finally snatch the colorful feather.
Promising review: "Very sturdy like a fishing pole with a comfortable foam handle. Heavy duty cord to hold each interchangeable feather attachment. Comes with a bag of several extra feather toys to replace as your cat wears each piece out. Easy to attach new toys with a 'fishing leader'-type safety clasp with NO SHARP EDGES. Great quality, terrific way to exercise your indoor cat, very durable, excellent value! This is both of my cats' absolute favorite toy!" – Honestly...
super tough bone great for larger breeds, because it can withstand intense chewing. The bone comes in a bacon or steak flavor, so your dog won't be able to resist the meaty goodness this toy offers.
Promising review: "This bone is one of the best bones I’ve bought for my 60-lb. Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd mix. She’s an aggressive chewer, any pork retriever rolls are gone in about half an hour. This is one of her favorite toys! She loves bringing it to me to share and then goes back to her chewing. You can’t beat the price on top of it being so durable." – Eleshia L.
Price: $7.70+ (available in four sizes and two flavors)
automatic laser toy so you don't have to operate a handheld laser for hours on end to keep your cat occupied. With this, just turn it on and try not to laugh at how much they lose it over a simple red light.
Promising review: "My cat's new favorite toy!😻 My cat is absolutely OBSESSED with this toy. BEST toy I've gotten her so far. It's a pretty simple object and it has an adjustable head so you can aim it more on the floor from countertops or chairs. I've never seen my cat so worn out after playing with this. We've tried everything to get her to play and after noticing how much she liked playing with the light that bounces off my phone I decided to get her a laser pointer. I bought a handheld one and she loves it but I feel bad when I can't play for as long as she wants because I'm doing something else so this is awesome. You can either pick it up and use it as a laser pointer or you can plug it in and just let her play! Thanks so much for the awesome fun you provide for my family." – Elliot daffodil
Promising review: "This is one of my dog's favorite toys. He will just sit with it and chew on it, or even run around with it in his mouth. It holds up nicely. My dog is a pretty normal chewer however, but the bone is so sturdy I'm sure it would last for a heavy chewer for some good time. Given the dog doesn't break off pieces of it of course." – Madi
Price: $11.19 (originally $14.99)
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.
Price: $22.99 for a two pack
"hot pursuit" toy that has a concealed wand and a visible toy at the end, which your kitty will chase and chase and chase as it moves in a circular motion on the ground.
Promising review: "I have two cats and they both love this! They will watch and play with this even when it's off! It's not too loud and works on both hardwood and carpet. It has two speeds to switch things up. This is by far their favorite toy! I love to see them playing together. They usually are not super fond of one another." – lb
Price: $11.26 (originally $27.99)
And finally, a
rope toy for the pups who don't care about fancy stuff and just want to gnaw on some good old-fashioned rope.
Promising review: "My German Shepherd puppy loves this rope! It is his favorite toy. At 9 months old and 70 pounds he needs a constant supply of substantial things to chew on. This provides him hours of entertainment and I don't worry about his teeth as with some of his other power chewer toys that feel as hard as concrete. Playing tug-o-war is great family fun and it is hilarious to watch him carry this thing all over the house :) The 36" size is perfect for a large dog in my opinion. I am VERY happy with this purchase." – TLK
Price: $2.09+ (available in seven sizes and in three, four, or five knot styles)
