    12. A plush produce set for pet parents who think it's adorable when their pup plays with her food.


    Promising review: "These are a little dog's delight! I bought these toys for my small dogs and they love them. My dogs are not seek and destroy types though. They are very good quality toys, have no odor at all, are larger than expected, and super cute. Some have squeakers and some rustle like paper inside. There were no tags to cut off. I would recommend them if your dog doesn't just destroy stuffed toys." β€”Clarissa

    Promising review: "My cat doesn't like toys with feathers. However this little singing hummingbird is a totally different story. She is 16 years old and loves it. It's always carried to her bed for nap time. It's a winner for her." β€”MeowMeowsMommy

    Price: $3.99

    16. A sturdy fetch wheel for very good dogs with a very bad habit of destroying every frisbee you throw them.


    Promising review: "I have an Australian cattle dog and he loves this toy so much. It's the best for fetch in an urban apartment because when you throw it it doesn't make tons of noise on the floor. He has been through three of these in two years. They're worth every penny. It's very durable β€” he is about sixty pounds and is very strong. I highly recommend this product for fetch and indoor play!" β€”Minando

    Promising review: "My two young cats seem to always quickly lose interest in the toys I buy them. However they can't seem to resist this toy whenever they walk by! It's so gratifying to hear them playing with it throughout the day. I will be buying additional pieces to change the shape of the track for more fun. This is top of my list of favorite purchases so far." β€”Walmart Customer
