Advantages: Tough and durable, lots of fun.
Disadvantages: Quite heavy.
The Kong series are fantastic - with the same basic idea every time. The toy is kind of pine-cone shaped, with smooth, undulating sides that make it easy to grip. It's made of a soft rubber that can be chewed, but is strong enough to withstand even the most persistant teeth without coming apart into pieces. When thrown, it reacts like a rugby ball, bouncing around unpredictably and giving the dog a real run-around when chasing it.
This version is essentially the same as big (red) Kong; the only real differences are that it's slightly smaller, a different colour and made from a slightly softer rubber - which is supposed to be beneficial for puppies' development. There's not much of a difference, and this is more or less the same product, although you can feel that this is a softer, more pliable material - though it's still tough enough for little, bitey, inquisitive chomping.
What's nice about the Kong as well is that there's a hole that runs through the middle which can be used to house little treats. Dogs can really enjoy chasing down the Kong, and they like digging out the treats as well. After years of use, ours was a little scarred and pock-marked, but was basically still fine and undamaged. Plus, it's easy to clean.
One thing I would say is that it's a relatively heavy product, so I wouldn't throw it, as it could hurt your dog - if you roll it, though, it's fine. All in all, I love this toy, and so did my dog!
