Not much of an introduction is needed for this post, which is a combination of a photo diary entry and a short dog toy review. Easter may be gone, but George has got something to remind him of the holidays, if not forever, then at least for the next couple of months.
So let me introduce today’s ‘subject’: this is Rainbow, George’s new bunny toy that he received as a present this Easter.
Rainbow is a beautiful, colourful bunny with a little noise-making mechanism inside. To George’s delight, it squeaks whenever he bites its bottom. George can be very funny with toys and new additions to his collection often spend weeks or months in his toy box before he actually starts to play with them. Not the Easter bunny. He took to it instantly and has not looked at any of his other toys for the past 3 days. He even takes it to bed with him which, coming from him, is a sign of true love.
What I really like about Rainbow is that it’s made of latex as opposed to normal rubber. Latex is supposed to be more durable and completely digestible should the dog decide to shred it to pieces and then eat it. It is definitely softer and more flexible than other rubber toys George has had over the past two years, and has successfully resisted the rough and tumble treatment it’s received so far. So, overall, we’re all really thrilled with our little bunny.
If you ever have to choose between a rubber and a latex toy, don’t hesitate, go for the latter. It may be a bit more expensive, but it’ll be a better quality, safer product for your fur baby. And it might last you longer which, eventually, will save you money.
