Last summer, we glanced at the Fisher-Price booth at BlogHer. We have no kids of Fisher-Price age but their toys always attract us. But wait! There was something new–something special. Fisher Price was introducing DOG TOYS! Not only dog toys, but dog toys that looked like the chatterphone, the rocking stack and the xylophone we had loved. The toys hadn’t been released yet but we filed it away in our head. A few months ago, we stopped in Petsmart and there the toys were–on the shelf for anyone to get one.
I bought the Chatterpup telebone–not for my mom’s shih tzu or any of the children’s dogs, but for the prairie dogs. They loved it. The rope! The nice chewy plastic. Of course, there’s nothing cuter than three prairie dogs playing with a toy that looks like the ones that our now teens played with when they were tiny.
When Fisher-Price contacted me about a review, I confessed I had already BOUGHT a Chatterpup phone and the prairie dogs loved it, but I would write a review. In exchange, we received a xylobone (heading to Hawaii for our oldest child’s dog who eats remote controls on a regular basis), a ruff-a-stack (for a dog that boy child in Florida has–shh don’t tell), and a new Chatterpup Telebone. Yay for toys for all the pups in my life–ok so, none for my mother’s dog but shhh don’t tell. I like the other dogs better.
In any case, these toys are made of peanut butter scented plastic and are downright adorable. If you are a “furbaby” type or just like Fisher-Price toys (like us)–you can’t go wrong with one of these in your dog’s stocking. They come in a large size and a small size and you can find them at your local Petsmart or order them from Petsmart online.
What is going under the tree for your pets? Which Fisher-Price toy do you love the best?
