The Roll-it - a review

When I was in Calgary last month, at Winners I found this toy for Phod. We didn't get to start playing with it until recently because it was too rainy and then he had hurt his leg.


Here is Phod playing with it:

He loves it and now if he sees us taking it out, he knows this means we are going to the beach!

Pros:
  • It was inexpensive (I think I paid $5 for it)
  • It floats, which makes it a great water toy.
  • Phod loved the squeaker.
  • It is small and light and easy to carry.
  • We have only used it a few times, but his strong jaws have not chewed through or damaged the rubber.
  • The bright orange colour is easy to see in the lake (it can be hard to see sticks). I don't know if this makes a difference for him, but it does for the humans! 

Cons:
  • The squeaker, which he loved has died already.
  • It skips when you throw it, so you have to be careful you don't throw it too far.

Overall, we would give this toy 3.5/4 paws.

Asides: 2 very long crazy days at work until vacation! I had a 12 hour day yesterday and will have the same today. Can't wait to catch up with everyone! Also, we are 8 posts from 1000 . . . . stay tuned!
