Broken squeakers

What to do with toys that have broken squeakers? The benefit of owning Golly Gear is that we have ready access to all sorts of great stuff. And the benefit of having dogs is that we have ready recipients for items no longer "sellable." We recently had to stop carrying some latex crabs. Cute as anything, but they didn't squeak like they were supposed to. We still had a couple in stock when we discovered this, so brought them home for the kids. Dax loves them! They've become her favorite toys. They have nice claws, and nice wide bodies. Dax steps on the body with her front paws and tugs on the claws or the eyes for all she's worth. She doesn't care one little bit that the crab isn't squeaking!

We usually end up with the toys and no squeakers. Not sure where those things end up...

I have a bag of squeakers I bought to replace worn out ones and to add to toys I make! But you're right, if they love the toy, they don't care if it squeaks!

I'm sending my Christmas wishes early this year as I will be away from blogland for a few weeks!

Have a wonderful holiday and best wishes for 2008!

bah, in our house the idea is to kill the squeaker.. I think if we put more in, it would make our kids very upset.. things that are dead are supposed to STAY dead.

Quiet toys are good toys!

Love those quiet toys! Dax doesn't care about the noise - she just wants to shred the thing! Roc loves to squeak! Ceilidh just loves her latex soccer ball - squeaky or not!

Rescue groups will happily take those un used but slightly faulty toys...
