Review: Kong Jumbler

The Kong Jumbler.
The Kong Jumbler is an interesting looking toy and very multi-functional :). It squeaks, it has a tennis ball (although it's inside it and not accessible), and it has two handles for easier gripping/tugging/carrying. We got the L/XL size and it was perfect for our gang of hooligans :).

First up was Rookie, that boy loves a good toy. I was interested to see what he would do with it though. His first love is tugging - would he grab a handle and want to tug? However, he didn't want anything to do with it. I couldn't understand it at first because he LOVES toys. But apparently Stacks loves this toy to the point of obsession and his tantrum on the other side of the babygate made Rookie put on the brakes. 

Stacks and the Jumbler
Stacks was enthralled with this wonderful toy :).
So I let Stacks have the toy :). He was ecstatic to say the least, lol. His favorite part was the size and the squeaker. The Jumbler is the perfect size for him to roll around the room with his egghead :), and the squeaker kept enticing him to 'bite and kill.' It was quite hilarious to watch him!

This toy is meant to be interactive - to be played with by a dog AND it's owner. Stacks was having none of that. He was pretty sure this was his personal toy and if he let me get too close I would take it away. I kept trying to tell him the toy had two handles for a reason - one for me and one for him. But I guess he didn't believe me :). Luckily, this toy is quite durable because he was chewing for a kill bite!

This toy is meant for supervised use and, regardless what Stacks thinks, it's not meant to be a true chew toy like other KONG toys. I will have to get this back out for Stacks and work on the interactive part :). He just loved it so much he didn't want to share! Once Stacks is back in his own home, I will have to reintroduce the toy to Rookie to get his opinion :).

I really liked this toy and it looks like it will be in our play rotation for awhile!

Rookie feels like he got screwed :).

  1. I'm curious how our dogs would do; when it comes to a new toy, our crew isn't into sharing either so I'd get 2 or 3. Thanks for the review. I'll check it out the next time I'm at the store.

    1. I've been really impressed with how well this toy has stood up to our 'abuse' :).
