First on the list are Egg Babies Replacement Eggs, by Kyjen; they make the list every year. Second is the Oy Vey! Gefilte Fish by Multipet. This talking fish is fun for people as well as their dogs. Third are the IQube Replacement Balls, by Kyjen. These dog balls are fun with or without the IQube dog puzzle. Babble Balls come in three sizes and three different sounds; however, the small Talking Babble Ball, by Pet Qwerks, is fourth on the 2009 list. Tyler Gobbling Turkey, by Multipet, is a fun voice chip dog toy, and it is fifth on the list. Sixth is the 14-inch Push-n-Play Jolly Ball, by Jolly Pet. This is the largest-size durable dog ball on the market; plus, all Jolly Ball dog toys are made in the USA! Sweet singing Awreatha the Christmas Wreath, by Multipet, is seventh on the list; it plays a music-box version of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Eighth is the perfect Hanukkah dog gift, a singing Hanukkah Dreidel, by Multipet. The Hide a Squirrel Plush Dog Puzzle, by Kyjen, always makes the list, and it is number nine for 2009. Dogs who love noisy dog toys love the Deedle Dudes Cow by Multipet; that is why it is number ten this year.
“It is hard to stop with the Top Ten Dog toys, because there are so many quality, fun toys for dogs,” according to Blakeslee. So, number eleven is REPLACEMENT Squirrels by Kyjen. The BARKING Shaggy Christmas Dogs, also by Kyjen, bark Christmas carols and are twelfth on the list. Numbers 13 and 14 are both by Party Pets; the Ball Jack and the Bungee Octopus are classic bright-colored dog toys. Fifteenth on the list is Trap Mouse by Ty Bow-Wow Beanie Babies. Bow Wow Beanies are one of the best dog toy values – they are made from quality plush and not only have a squeaker, they have crinkle paper, too! Another Multipet Look Who’s Talking made the list, at number 16: the crowing Rooster, which makes a realistic crowing sound. A new plush dog puzzle, the Magic Hat with Rabbits, by Kyjen, is seventeenth on the list. All Nina Ottosson Zoo Active dog problem-solving puzzles are very popular; however, the Dog Tornado is number eighteenth on the list. One of the Dr. Noys’ Toys always makes this list. This year the Extra Small Duckie Duck is number 19th. Dr. Noys’ Toys have little or no stuffing, and they have replacement squeakers, too! Last is the Sheep Bottle Buddies. Water bottle cover dog toys are so popular because they never stop their crinkly sound.
While this is the Top Twenty Selling dog toy list, Blakeslee said that in 2009 several dog toy manufacturers had trouble having enough supply to fill BestFriends General Store’s orders. “If we had been able to get the dog toys that our customers wanted this list would probably look very different.”
