In a previous Wordless Wednesday we gave you a little preview of Luke with the new Kong Jumbler toy. Everyone could guess from the photos that it was a hit with Luke!
The Kong Jumbler is a new interactive toy from Kong. It comes in two shapes: ball and football, and two sizes, M/L and L/XL. We got the M/L ball, which turned out to be the perfect size for Luke and the girls.
It has two handles for easy grabbing and interactive play, and it has a Kong tennis ball that rolls around inside. It squeaks too! Luke loved it the minute I handed it to him, but we had to put it to a further test and take it outside and see what kind of fun we could have with it. I think these photos will speak for themselves:
Now, what about the girls? Did they get a chance to play? They weren’t quite as interested in it. That’s nothing against the toy….you have to understand that both of these girls are going on 10 years old and they’re pretty set in their ways. They have certain toys that they like to play fetch with and they like to stick with those. However, when we’re outside playing fetch, we often have more than one toy in play so everyone gets more of a chance. The girls did show some interest though:
Luke kind of hogged it anyway!
I think Sheba really just wanted to take it under the deck and chew on it. That was the only con we found to this toy: it doesn’t stand up to rough chewing. It does say right on the label “Designed for light/moderate chewing.” Unfortunately, in this household we have mostly heavy chewers. Sheba always has been and Luke seems to be learning that from her. So this toy has to be in supervised play only, for us anyway. Luke did start to put some small holes in it when he was left for only a few minutes. That’s fine, we’re used to that around here, we have plenty of toys like that.
This is going to be fun to play with outside especially, and I have a feeling it will float in the pool too. We were going to put that to the test, but we’ve gotten rained out lately. This is a great interactive toy and we look forward to lots more fun with it….Luke gives it four paws up for sure!
