Favorite Toys

Does everyone have a favorite toy that their Hav's cannot simply do without?? Radar loves his Rope Bone and doesn't seem to be able to be without it. I would say he loves that toy but the Loofa seems to be the toy of choice with Radar since it was the first thing we really gave him. He also likes the little peice of cloth with the scent of his littermates on it when we first got him. we relaly need to clean it though because it's getting smelly now. A Toy Poll would be funny. I think it may be longer than the Food Poll.

Great idea!
Oliver's favorite toy is the barbell. He loves it!!! He has loads of toys but that barbell he can't refuse. He plays catch with it. (alone and with us)
He makes it sqeak.He plays hide and seek.
He first got one as a puppy--we now buy an extra when we see them. (He seems to favor blue ones however )

Nico doesn't have one favorite - there are a number of toys he plays with regularly and really enjoys. He has a loofah bone that he's playing with now. He has a soft frisbee that he loves to fetch. He likes his Puppy Kong when there are treats in it! He has a small plush rabbit with a squeaker and a rope at the end that he could play with all day. He loves to play fetch with a big furry bone, a little fleece bone and a little squeaky soccer ball. And then there's the giggle carrot. . . Of course this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his toys - we got carried away and he has TONS of them - but these are the favorites.

The giggling veggies WERE the favorite until the

*****drumroll please****.....

Wolf Puppet

It is very similar to this one:

The one I have, I purchased at The Great Wolf Lodge Giftshop It originally belonged to my son, but Gucci staked her claim and that was it.

Thanks for posting this thread! I am about to go look for some more puppets. We have so much fun playing with them. Just make sure they are thick puppets so you don't get bit.

Without a doubt, Maddie loves Pipsqueaks, Pipsqueaks, Pipsqueaks!! She loves all of them, but particularly the octopus. The only other toy she loves as much is a large stuffed bunny handpuppet that makes a "boing, boing" sound when you move its mouth. Its a child's toy, but I picked it up at the grocery store for $2 after Easter on a clearance table. The toy drives her crazy! Any toy that makes an unusual sound is hands down her favorite!

Giggling veggies, the carrot first then the pepper. She also loves her Heava Beaver round rope throw from Pet Smart.

Kara any problems with the eyes on the wolf.

Hmm..None so far, it does have hard plastic eyes that I may have to remove now that you mention it. It could present a choking hazard. They are glued very securely, but still...??

However, she wants to play with it with a HAND inside of it! lol, she'll bring it up to me and look at me with *those eyes* , so it is usually a toy that always had "adult supervision"

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll probably take them off.

She already dismembered the carrot. Took the nose off the first day we had it.

All the giggling toys have lost their noses. Sewed one back on then said forget it.

Does she bite at it when you play with her? Smarty caught on to the mean dog game too well and now we really have to be careful with her sharp teeth not to encourage her.

Yes and no. She likes to tackle it, and does play-bite at the tongue and mouth, but I don't think she's any more aggresive than she is with the carrot.

She knows the command "easy"...which is what I say for her to calm down. If she doesn't calm down with "easy", I walk away. So far, no injuries with the puppet. *Knock on wood* Her objective is usually to "pin it down", which of course, is staged by me hehe.

Benji absolute favorite is his small squeaking ball. He also loves his stuffed toy- a green frog- Mr. Froggy which squeaks too. He didn't like any chewing ropes from the petstores. I made knots on a 1/4" wide cotton cord and it's a big hit with him.

Best,
Poornima

Best, Poornima
