Durability Rating: (5/5)
Another awesome toy from our friends at VIP Products. The Mighty Ball has been in the toy bucket for several months now and it’s held up remarkably well over the duration. No signs of wear on it, and it gets a lot of play.
The Mighty Ball is a fleece covered rubbery ball that squeaks, about 6″ in diameter. The ball is just the right size — large enough so that it doesn’t get lost under furniture, works well as a kick ball, but small enough to pick up and carry around. It’s also very flexible and soft on the mouth. Moxie likes to catch it with her paws and mouth while showing off her amazing talent for mid-air acrobatics. Cassie likes to catch it and then make it squeak and squeak and squeak till it drives us crazy and we toss it again, hoping Moxie will get it for a while. The toy’s round shape doesn’t make it a good tug or chew toy, which might account for its long wear.
The fleece does get a bit wet from all the mouthing, but not as much as a tennis ball or plain rubber ball. We’ve used this toy strictly as an indoor toy to keep it clean. The company states the toy does float if you want it for a pool toy. We’ll keep it inside though, since it’s soft and great for indoor play without worrying too much about knocking things about.
VIP Products rates this toy as a 10 on their “Durablity Scale” and we agree. It’s definitely a toy we’d recommend. The combination of ball, stuffy and squeaky toy brings a lot of options for many hours of creative play without any mess.
Honest, folks, I don’t work for this company! They have no idea I even exist, except for the fact that I’ve been in their Dog Toy Tester program, which anybody can join, and get products shipped once a month for 50% off. A great deal on some terrific dog toys.
