Looking for a tougher toy to stand the test of time?

Let us introduce you RhinoPlay, the newest line from goDog.
Just like our beloved dogs, not all toys are created equal. Some are what I refer to as a "one and done" playtime, while others, like goDog's plush toys with Chew Guard Technology, last for years. Penny is literally playing with toys that are at least three times as old as she is!
When we were asked to try the new RhinoPlay toys, I immediately said yes. After all, the line's tag line is "deceptively light, incredibly strong." We had to check these toys out!
RhinoPlay toys are made from a unique material called PopFoam NT, which produces toys that are incredibly strong, yet exceptionally lightweight. The special foam was developed by goDog's parent company, Worldwise, in conjunction with the One World Play Project.
The result of the collaboration is a tough molded foam that is environmentally friendly and non-toxic, making it safe for your pets and their little human friends. You won't have to worry if your kid puts the dog's toy in their mouth while playing.
The line currently features four different toys, and each is available in two sizes - Regular and Jr.
- Vexo is a stick-shaped toy with a concave design that makes it easy for dogs to pick up
- Beastis a puncture-proof ball that promises to never go flat thanks to a self-inflating valve
- Cirqis a fun round toy with a square center with a channel around the underside that allows dogs to carry it, and it can be stuffed with treats
- Flipis an egg-shaped (or chip, as goDog describes it) toy that always lands with one side up so it's easy for dogs to pick up and carry
All four of the toys have been designed to float, making them great for playing fetch just about anywhere - at home, at the park, in the pool, and especially on the beach. Don't worry about getting them sandy, just rinse the toys off and let them air dry.
The bright colors make the toys easy to spot for both you and your dog. You'll be less likely to lose a toy at the park, out on a hike, or even in the snow.
And yes, they truly are extremely lightweight! Almost like Styrofoam or a pool noodle.
The Lapdogs haven't quite caught on to the RhinoPlay fun just yet, but I'm pretty confident that if you have a dog who loves to retrieve, especially in water, they'll really enjoy the line.
I'm hoping Penny will befriend the Beast sooner than later. With all of the tennis balls she popped, having her fall in love with a puncture-proof ball would be wonderful!
So, how about your dogs? Are you ready to add to their summer fun with a couple of RhinoPlay toys?
