Roxie’s Reviews: Harry Barker hemp bone
A classic or cliche dog toy shape? I’ll let you decide.
Chew factor: 5/10 Chewing isn’t the highlight of this toy…
Fun factor: 5/10 This is fine for sleeping with or for fetch. It’s not very good for tug-of-war though, as it’s difficult for humanses to hold on to.
Squeakiness: 8/10 It has 2 squeakers in it for double the fun!
Durability: 4/10 Erin rotates my toys so I don’t get bored. When Erin rotated this in for a second round, I managed to rip it open, off the seam! I’m quite proud of that part, to be honest.
Coloring: 5/10 The pastel blue is ok for babies and boy dogs, I guess?
Roxie’s Reviews: Lollycadoodle felted mouse
This toy was a surprise crowd-pleaser. Erin did not expect this to be something a dog would enjoy -it looks like a cat toy, feels like a cat toy, and is a mouse [aka a cat toy]. On the contrary, it is a dog toy [no catnip present] and it is quite fun!
Chew factor: 4/10 This toy is fine for chewing, but not the most interesting one around. The felted material has a surprisingly springy texture.
Fun factor: 5/10 This is a nice tug toy, due to the long tail for the humanses to hold on to. It’s ok for fetch, but not my favorite -no bounce to speak of.
Squeakiness: 0/10 No squeaker, no crinkle… nothing.
Durability: 7/10 A month later and it’s not misshapen. No holes yet either. Give me time though -I aim to misbehave. This sucker doesn’t stand much chance long-term.
Coloring: 5/10 It’s a mouse…
Roxie’s Reviews: Pet Qwerks Newspaper
This toy is really satisfying and will grow on you. The more you learn to love it, the more your humans will hate it. That’s right - this thing squeaks AND crinkles! Give your humans many a sleepless night, as they think you are rooting through things you shouldn’t be.
Chew factor: 6/10 This toy is satisfying to chew on but that’s not what it is designed for. It’s squishy and noisy, but not all that sturdy.
Fun factor: 6/10 Not the most exciting toy in my arsenal, but it does double duty for tug or for fetch. Not all that convenient for either. The important thing to note is that it is super comphy. I had it in my bed for several days and would lay on it.
Squeakiness: 8/10 It has a pretty generic squeaker that will probably break quickly. It does however, have a crinkly material inside that hasn’t seemed to quit yet!
Durability: 4/10 The canvas is easily torn, even off a seam. Very satisfying to destroy though!
Coloring: 5/10 While accurate, black and white is old news to me.
Roxie’s Reviews: Aussienaturals Candy Ball
This has become my favorite tug-toy. (I still love my octopus from the first barkbox, but it’s starting to look a little busted, so Erin doesn’t bring it out that often.) You know it’s a good toy when I’m tuckered out at the end of a play session.
Chew factor: 7/10 I like to carry this one around, but it isn’t as good for flossing as the octopus from last time. The center of the ball though is very interesting and I do like to give it a good nom from time to time.
Fun factor: 7/10 This is a nice toy for tug-of-war. If I were a better sport, I’d take the other handle, but I like to grab up on the ball, as close to my humanses’ hands, just to be sneaky! ;)
Squeakiness: 0/10 There is no squeaker. Wah wah wah wahhhhh :(
Durability: 8/10? I’ll let you know. I just got it and it seems pretty sturdy.
Coloring: 7/10 The blue color won’t be emasculating to the men in your lives. Pretty generic, neutral coloring!
Roxie destroyed her favorite toy! RIP Lambykins…
I REGRET IT ALREADY! ;_____; huu huuu huu!
Very displeased that the humanses put Lambykins away, in favor of the rabbit replacement. Expressing my displeasure accordingly. Nye heh heh heh hehhhh!
Roxie’s Reviews: Good Karma Rope Toy
Alright, don’t let these photos fool you. This toy is amazing, it just can’t compete with beef-sticks… It has become one of my favorites and I have been picking it over the Wee-Nut. (Right now, out in rotation are the Wee-Nut, Good Karma, and Lambykins.)
Chew factor: 9/10 This toy is great for chewing, and it is probably good for your gums and teeth. Get those pearly whites squeaky clean! I really like chewing on this because the center offers some nice resistance.
Fun factor: 7/10 This is a nice toy for fetch & tug-of-war. Tug-of-war can be tricky for your humans though -it’s hard for them to grip the tiny tentacles.
Squeakiness: 0/10 There is no squeaker. If Good Karma makes a squeaky toy, Erin better buy it for me.
Durability: 5/10 A month after first getting this toy, the tentacles began to fray and unravel. It’s head was smushed out of shape from frequent nommings. It’s hanging in there, but it probably doesn’t have long to live.
Coloring: 8/10 The burnt orange makes it easy for your humans to find, but you’ll never have to worry about a dear walking off with it. Whew. I don’t know about you, but I’m not about to track down Bambi.
Worry not, dear followers… I have killed the squirrel menace! He won’t be bothering anyone ever again.
“Reunited and it feels so good!”
Just thought I should update you: Lambykins is still my favorite and filthier than ever!! :D
