Happy Pet Wiggly Giggly Jack
Advantages: Your dog may enjoy playing with it
Disadvantages: Heavy, can be easily chewed, dogs didnt really like the noise it made
My youngest dog Dax was a rescue and I am his 4th home. When I collected him I was given a large bag of toys that the previous owner had bought for Dax. In it was the Wiggly Giggly Jack which to be honest, I would probably not have bought myself.
The Wiggly Giggly Jack
This dog toy has a ball in the middle with four arms that comes out from it. Every time the toy is moved position it makes a strange noise which is very hard to explain. It's like those plastic sticks you sometimes get at fairs and when you move it, it makes sort of like a gurgling noise!
The toy is made from extremely hard plastic and looks like it is indestructible. The Wiggly Giggly Jack comes in three colours - orange, green and purple.
Obviously as I already said, this toy was given to me but I have had a look online and this toy will set you back £5.99 from most of the online shops.
To be honest, this toy stayed in their toy box for a good few months before they even bothered to look at it. Once they got it out, they were not entirely sure what they were meant to do with it. Eventually Dax picked it up and of course it made a noise. He dropped it straight away as I think it scared him. He nudged it across the room a few times and then hit it with his paws. Again it made a noise but it didn't seem to bother him so much this time.
Since then, they have occasionally got it out to play with but they just try and play fetch with it and are not particularly interested in moving it around the floor and trying to set the noise off (like they do with their other toys)
Their favourite thing to do with this toy was to chew it which I thought would be no problem because it looks fairly strong - I was wrong! Over the space of about a month, they managed to chew it to shreds and I had to throw it out! The other thing that annoyed me is that it can be dangerous to give your dogs a toy that can be chewed so easily as you don't really want them to swallow the pieces they chew off.
I wouldn't buy this toy again to replace the broken one. I didn't think that my dogs got much enjoyment from actually playing with it. They would literally only pick it up if it was the nearest toy to them and to start with Dax was very unsure of the noise it made.
I don't think my dogs really understood that to set the noise off, they needed to move the toy around on the floor. Instead they just wanted too play fetch with the toy which to be honest isn't really possible because the toy is quite big and heavy and you don't really want to be throwing it around the living room.
I was disappointed that the toy could be destroyed just by chewing it because it does state that this toy is meant to be strong which it obviously isn't!
I wouldn't recommend this toy to other dog owners. It is not cheap at £5.99 and in my opinion; it serves no real purpose as my dogs didn't really enjoy playing with it. To be honest, I think this toy would be more suited to a young child as they would have fun holding it and turning it over in their hands to set the noise off.
The biggest disappointment was that the toy can be destroyed. It does state that it is meant to be strong and durable but this certainly wasn't the case in my experience.
