Durability Rating: (2/5)
Earlier this week, we reviewed the Mighty Ball also by VIP Products, which is a big hit here at our house. This toy, the Mighty Lenny Leopard Safari Dog Toy, unfortunately, has not been so lucky. Even though VIP Products rates this toy as a 9 on their Dura-Scale, it didn’t last more than a day here. Before we knew it, there was stuffing everywhere, and what a lot of stuffing there was!
This is the second disappointment in the Safari series. We also tried the Polar Bear stuffie back in November, and were equally disappointed. That toy got returned to the store the next day, but this toy, we kept since it was part of the Dog Toy Tester program.
Actually, now that the stuffing is removed, the rest of the toy is still recognizable, but we really don’t recommend this toy if your dogs like to play rough. At around $20, they are just too expensive to last only a day or so, so I’d recommend going with one of the Tuffy series instead, which have held up really well. They aren’t quite as cuddly, but at least they last! If you really want this toy though, here it is: VIP Products Mighty Lenny Leopard Safari Dog Toy.
