    Promising review: "We rescued a sweet boy from a shelter this week — he doesn't seem to have ever been in a home or had any toy ever. As he's been acclimating to his new home, I wanted to give him something that was special and in reading all the reviews on this little duck and seeing so many adorable dogs cuddling with theirs, I knew this was going to be the first toy we gave him. When we gave this to him today and reinforced that this was his a few times he quickly started carrying it with him everywhere he went in the house. Cutest was when he carried it upstairs (which also are a new thing that scare him) to go to bed tonight then found him cuddling with it sleeping. Highly recommended this little duck as a sweet surprise for probably any dog." —runsonblackcoffee

Even though the toy is almost as big as she is, she easily carries it around, wrestles with it, and is able to extract the squirrels. Another good thing is that the toy is well made - no issues here with any part of this toy coming apart, even though my pup has teeth like needles and plays with it all time time." —Moonglow

    6. A Kong Extreme Dog Toy so strong, even the toughest of chewers won't be able to destroy it., Amazon

    I have an 80-pound golden retriever — and he can really tear into toys like it's nobody's business. However he (and thousands of dogs all over the country) can't destroy this Kong Extreme Dog Toy. This toy is so amazing that 4,978 Amazon customers have given it a five-star review!

    Promising review: "Well, my adolescent dog is finally old enough that he can destroy most dog toys out there. People rave about Kongs for good reason! He doesn't seem to be able to chew through these toys, thank goodness! We're a busy family, so I use these Kong Extremes to keep him busy and out of my hair. I mix approximately half a can of wet dog food with water to make a soupy concoction. Then I mix in some dry kibble and fill the kong with this moistened, extra-tasty dog food. Then I freeze it. A frozen filled Kong will keep my dog (approx 60 lbs) busy for at least an hour." —Cholla Cactus

    Promising review: "I bought this product for the first time a couple months ago in an effort to keep my two black bear hamsters from chewing on their cages. It cut down their chewing a lot and they love them. I am now a huge fan of these chews. I would recommend this to anyone with a hamster. It is great for healthy chewing and teeth filing." —Katkat242

    Get it from Petco for $3.59.

    9. An aerodynamic frisbee, perfect for taking a typical of game of fetch to ~new heights~.,

    This frisbee is like no other — it's lightweight, buoyant in water, easy to clean, and gentle on dogs' mouths. What more could you want in a toy?

    Promising review: "This is my dog's favorite thing EVER. He's a rowdy boxer/Lab boy who loves to tug, and these Frisbees hold up really well. He holds onto it with both his little paws so no one can take it away. I have to replace them every couple months after continuous play. Of all the toys he has, this is always number one. It's his most prized thing and he loves to show it off and dance around with it. Seeing him that happy is definitely worth it!" —Super Awesome

    Get it from Amazon for $9.60+ (available in small and medium)

    10. Or a treat-dispensing ball that'll have your furry pal begging you to play at all times (sorry).,

    Looking for a versatile toy sure to have your pup jumping for joy? This is it, my friends! This breathable rubber ball is ideal for playing fetch, tossing, and tugging — it's everything your dog wants in a toy!

    Promising review: "I was searching for a great toy for my pit bull (8 months olds) and decided on this toy. He is a chewer, and destroys anything he can rip apart. I went with the green x-large size ball, and he just loves it. It has some weight to it, and he still picks it up and runs around with it with ease. I try to only let him play with it while supervised, and so far it is still in one piece after a month now! When you throw it, it rolls, does not bounce." —DZ

    Get it from Amazon $4.95+ (available in five sizes and also in packs of two)

    11. A toy made of mixed rubber and nylon materials that just might convince you and your pup the Lochness Monster is real.


    Promising review: "My pit bull, Jill, loves this toy! The mixture of textures (hard nylon and rubber 'water') gives her plenty of mouth feel variety. She loves gnawing on it on the edge of the bed and watching it bounce when she drops it off. She is able to rip off the rubber part fairly quickly but doesn't eat any of the pieces. I'm ordering another one because she likes this toy so much!" —Winter Kucharski

    Get it from BarkShop for $14.

    12. A cat condo, so your ferocious feline can feel like they're exploring the great outdoors from the comfort of your living room.,

    Not only will this cat condo give your kitty a fun place to hide/climb/hang out in, but it will add some much-needed greenery to your home. Big win!

    Promising review: "At first, our cat wouldn't climb onto it, even with coaxing her with treats and catnip. We think it might have had a smell or something about it from the container. But now, it's her FAVORITE part of the house, she's on it all the time! It was pretty easy to assemble and is a really cool cat tree. We didn't want a carpet tree, and the extra foliage fits nicely in our house!" —The Queen of Anneland

    Get it from Amazon for $127.99+ (available in sizes S–L and with a square or round base)

    13. A hamster hideout you'll look at and say "wow, that's berry cute!" each time they crawl inside.


    Promising review: "I bought this in March and it is now July, my hamster Chip LOVES this thing. I originally got it for him because it looked cute but he really does like it. He is a pretty big Syrian and he still fits inside. No matter how many times I try to show him that he has like four other hides in his cage without a bottom so he can burrow, he goes straight to this and never comes out. I don’t know why he thinks it’s so comfortable?" —Chipster67

    Get it from Petco for $4.49.

    14. A handheld ball launcher, for when you and your doggo head to the park for some one-on-one playtime.,

    I do not have the best throwing arm — and my golden retriever, Luke, always looks at me like, "R U KIDDING?" when I throw him his favorite tennis ball. Luckily for me, the Chuckit! ball launcher exists to help me (and him) have a better game of fetch.

    Promising review: "Without these launchers I would need my arms amputated. They are incredibly useful. You don't have to touch slobbery balls or risk damaging your arm from throwing too much. The 25- or 26-inch lengths are the ones that most people probably want. You don't have to bend all the way over to reload. These make playing fetch so much easier and more enjoyable for both me and my fetching-obsessed golden retriever." —RG

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in sizes 14S-26L)

    15. A bobbling ball, ideal for exercising and feeding your dog at the same time.,

    This lil' contraption will not only keep your pup playing and running around, but it can fit an entire full meal inside of it! It wobbles around, but has an anti-slip bottom so it won't fall over. So fun!

    Promising review: "Was looking for something to keep our dog busy on his own when we aren't home. I am so impressed with this toy! When he was in the mood and hungry, he opened up and went right to work. The instructions that come with the toy are very helpful. The material of this toy doesn't sound annoying on our wood floor either. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!" —R. Jain

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98.

    16. An interactive cat toy that'll be simply purr-fect for entertaining your precious feline.,

    Put down the laser pointer and get your cat something you can play with together! This fun tower features multi-level tracks that will keep your kitty entertained for hours as they bat balls around. It's suitable for one or more cats and will help them have a more active lifestyle. AND think of all the great IG content you'll get!

    Promising review: "This is by far the best investment in a toy that I have ever made for my cat. He loves interacting with it and did not like other ball chasers in the past. Balls glide around smoothly. Cat's paws don't get stuck in the tracks. Balls are brightly colored and easy to see for my one-eyed little boy who has depth perception issues with his vision. I hear him playing with it at least a few times a day, and I tell you the god's honest truth, as I'm writing this review, he just went over and laid next to it and swatted a ball, just this minute!" —Fussy New Yorker

    Get it from Amazon for $9.76

    17. Plush dumpling-shaped toys that you and your pup will find un-bao-lieveably cute and fun to toss around the house.


    Promising review: "Our dog LOVES this toy!!! It's so soft and he loves to stick his head into the container to get the dumplings! It's so beyond cute — it's my favorite toy for him!" —Ana

    Get them from BarkShop for $12 (available in small or medium).

    Promising review: "My cats are completely in love with their new toys! There is a little something for each of my three cats to enjoy and play with. The mother cat goes crazy for the shiny tinsel balls. One of my brother cats loves the mice and the other has a blast chasing the balls." —Allison Watt

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in packs of 13 or 20)

    19. A well-made plush toy, so your pup always has someone to hug and snug with.,

    Made with a durable two-layer lining, these lil' guys are STRONG. Your pup can whip em' around, tug on em' and squeak away all day long with this knotted toy. I know what I'm getting my dog for his birthday!

    Promising review: "HuggleHounds are a must for all dog owners! I love every single one of their durable dog toys and my dog loves playing with them endlessly. I have purchased four or five of them now and every one is just as great as the one before! They are so durable and definitely are geared towards puppies who like to bite and chew. They have multiple squeakers in each one to keep your puppy entertained for hours. I have never had any issues with them coming apart and my puppy plays with them every day. I would highly recommend." —Mindy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes small and large and in 23 styles)

    20. A Wobble Wag Giggle ball that'll have you LOLing while your dog freaks out over this fun toy., Amazon

    All your dog has to do is nudge the ball with their nose to get it going. It shakes, wiggles, and makes sounds that will have your pup engaged immediately. They'll be able to knock it around with their paws thanks to the many clutch pockets. It's sure to be a winner in your home.

    Promising review: "I have a 7-month-old corgi puppy and this was his favorite toy out of all his toys he got for Christmas! He loves it so much that I have to put it up and away just so I can sleep. It's sturdy and not too noisy (I live in an apartment). His toy preference is for toys that make noise instead of plush toys without squeakers. It's lasted a whole week of play without any problems unlike another toy he already tore up, so it seems durable, at least for small to medium breeds." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $11.

    21. Or catnip disguised as blueberry pancakes, because why should you be the only one having a lit time at brunch?

    MiniTigerDesign / Etsy

    Gert it from MiniTigerDesign on Etsy for $10.11.

    22. A treat ball with adjustable difficulty levels, so your fur baby won't ever tire of playing with it.


    What dog or cat doesn't want a toy they can play with for hours upon and hours that also rewards them with treats? This simple ball will keep your pet happy all day long. Added bonus? It's super easy to clean!

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this toy. I have a 5-month-old, 30 lb Labradoodle and she enjoys playing games rather than sitting and chewing on something. I fill the toy with her dog food or small treats and she will play with it until there are no treats left. It is worth the price, buy it!" —AOlesky

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in 2, 3 or 4 inches in size)

    23. A Turbo Scratcher, which is a must-have if you've had to replace your kitchen chairs 10 times because your cat keeps SCRATCHING THEM UP., Amazon

    Promising review: "Can I give this 10 stars? My mom ordered this for my cat Felicia who can come and go as she pleases via a cat door. I originally thought there's no way it would hold her interest because she's use to chasing, catching, torturing, and halfway eating living creatures. Boy was I wrong! That dang ball is like the elusive prey she can't quite disable, she will play with it hardcore for 15 minutes straight then go catch a lizard for satisfaction and come back and try to kill the ball. She's absolutely hilarious with this toy!" —Riverlivin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two styles)

    24. A 12-pack of catnip-filled toys that'll make your cat want to play right ~meow~., Amazon

    Is there anything cats enjoy more than catnip and chasing mice? This toy combines both of those things, so they can play to their hearts' content.

    Promising review: "These were one of the first toys I picked up for my cat when I brought her home from the shelter ten and a half years ago. She used to go crazy for them and would destroy the mouse in a day or two tops. A huge favorite for her, and I had to give her a mouse one at a time to avoid them all being destroyed at once. Now that she is in her senior years she is not so hard on her toys. I purchased these for her for Christmas this year, and I gave her the whole pack at once. She still likes them and throws and chases them all over, but she no longer destroys them. I highly recommend these, especially for younger cats, but even older cats will enjoy!" —Kristin

    Get them from Amazon for $5.51+ (available in four styles)

    25. A rainbow cat charmer, great for entertaining both you and your kitty at the same time. Win-win!,

    Did anyone else have one of those ribbon dancer toys as a kid? This magical product reminds me of that in the best way. Think of all the fun you and your cat will have playing with this rainbow charmer!

    Promising review: "My cat typically doesn't take much interest in toys — she's very lazy and will at most roll on her back to play. But this toy changed the game altogether. She goes nuts for ribbon-type toys and will run up and down stairs and even jump to try to grab this twirling, dazzling toy. The handle is an acrylic-looking deal, the ribbon is polyester, it seems, and stretchy, and the tip is attached with some kind of rubber sleeving." —M.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49+ (also available as a pack of two)

    26. A UFO-shaped toy your dog can gnaw on while you continue to dive deeper into the Area 51 conspiracy theories.


    Promising review: "Our middle dachshund Dexter loved this toy so much when it came with the Bark Box that I ordered two more. What I like about the toy is that the squeaker is inside the large circle that makes the UFO. Thus, it takes him longer to tear it apart. It is a good size for his mouth. Granted, a dachshund will destroy any toy with a squeaker, but this one last longer than most." —Elaine Maylen

    Get it from BarkShop for $10.

    27. A durable set of rope toys that you and Fido will be able to play with time and time again without worrying about breakage.


    Right after he finishes dinner, my dog goes WILD. He gets a sudden burst of energy and wants to play immediately, usually urging one of my family members to indulge in a rope toy tug-of-war. He would looove this pack of four, that's for sure.

    Promising review: "These were great for my puppy. The sizes go up basically in thickness, and so the toy grows with her in that regard (while she doesn't outgrow the earlier sizes). The price is super affordable, and they are tough! My puppy is an avid chewer and these items have survived many tug-o-wars thus far." —Colleen Sinclair

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $9.87.

    28. A secret hideaway with a fun ladder made of natural materials anyone who owns a bird or hamster will want to invest in just to watch 'em play with in it.,

    Promising review: "This is such a fun find for my budgie. She loves to whistle or talk in it, I think she likes the echo. I catch her sleeping in there too, just adorable! She is an English budgie, so yours will fit in there too :) Advice: She wasn't sure at first but I made sure the ladder was secure enough to ensure her confidence, and also put some spray millet in there and it didn't take long before she liked it." —Candace

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99

    29. A BarkBox filled with '90s gems your pup can enjoy while you marathon through Saved By The Bell...again., Amazon

    I treated my dog to this set recently and he was SO excited to rifle through the toys and select his favorite as soon as the box was opened. It's so fun to see him playing with items that look like things I loved from my childhood!

    Promising review: "Our goldens loved the toys in this box. As you can see, we're still working on sharing...and these toys were just too good to try very hard, it seems! It was fun for us to open them and see how creative the '90s theme was, and we continue to admire them as they are strewn across our floor from constant playing with (ahem ...fighting over...)" —C.M.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.

    30. A fancy rope bridge that'll let your cat feel more like a lion while they stalk over every move you make. Fun!?

    CatastrophiCreations / Etsy

    Promising review: "Stunning! The bridge is unique, breathtaking, and brings excitement to my cat. The rope is durable, she can’t chew on it. Appreciated that the bridge came pre-assembled and saved a potential headache. The installation was simple and the quality is great." —Dylan

    Get it from CatastrophiCreations for $195+ (available in nine lengths and three colors).

    31. Catnip-filled fruit, because why wouldn't you want to watch your kitten hilariously go ~bananas~ over a toy?


    Not only is this just a funny toy for cat parents to enjoy, but it is a top-rated product on Amazon. With 4.5 stars and over 2,045 five-star reviews, this is a must-have toy for any cat owner.

    Promising review: "I decided to buy this for my cat after she stayed at our pet sitter's house and played all day with one of these bananas there. This is by far the greatest toy I have ever purchased for her. She just spent the last 2.5 hours playing with it with no breaks. Normally she sticks with a toy for about 10 minutes before returning to a nap." —Meg

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four styles and as a two-pack)

    32. A Starbarks plush toy that'll let your pup pretend they're as basic as you. Pupkin Spice Latte, anyone?,

    Promising review: "I got this toy 10 months ago for my dog and it is still going strong! She normally rips all her stuffed animals apart within an hour, but this toy has lasted her longer than any toy I've gotten for her. It looks adorable, she loves to cuddle it and play with the squeaker. So happy it's lasted so long!" —Sydney McGagin
