Another toy bites the dust

As part of my ongoing research programme into indestructible dog toys, I recently heard about the Mega Tuffies Mega Ring. This toy thinks it's pretty tough! It boasts about its 7 rows of stitching and industrial grade nylon webbing, but is it tough enough to withstand a Wire Fox Terrier?



Erm, the short answer is no. Another toy ends up in the stuffie graveyard.

Hey Jackson, I get suck a kick out of your blog. You should hire yourself out for quality control. You could make a nice little fortune, and have loads of fun in the process.

Hey Jackson,
Thanks for posting this one. Mama's been wondering about those toys. They would probably hold up for Snickers, but maybe not me. Did it have a squeaker inside? If so, I probably would have at least ruined that in the first night, hehehee.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi, Jackson
I guess the word indestructible doesn't apply there!
Good job!
Have a good night

Faya said...

Kisses, Faya

Amber-Mae said...

I am in awe of you prowess. It almost makes me want to try out playing (destroying) a toy. A (non blogging) Airedale friend in the States is a BIG toy destroyer. He can even shred a black Kong. His ma has heard of a company that sells toys for zoo animals that are supposed to be super duper tough so she ios going to try those out!!

Toodle pip,

You are the master of destruction Jackson. Good work.

jaffeboy said...

Well done buddy. That's the way all doggie toy should end up to be!

I'm waiting for my new stuffie on Christmas & I swear I'm gonna shred it in record time!

Zorra said...

BOL, we managed to destroy that toy in a very short order ourselves. We, too, have sent many indestructable toys to their graves. Our mom just BOLS over the phrase "indestructable toys." We wonder who tests these things? Human babies?

Agatha and Archie said...

Good work!! HA!! Is there a toy in the WORLD that we can not conquer?? WE SAY NO as shown over and over by our superb product tester..YOU!!!! Love A+A

Gus said...

Hey Jackson...you and Teka would make an awesome quality control team. She is truly MURDER on stuffies, and she is tuff on rubbery toys too.....All you need is an agent!

Ferndoggle said...

And that's why Mom refuses to pay more than a few $$s for our toys. Only 2 have passed the destructo test...and they were gifts!

Jackson, you da man! I guess "mega" and "industrial" are just marketing words :-)

Merry Christmas

a toy has no purpose if it can't be destroyed. what is any dog supposed to do with a toy that can't be chewed into a million pieces?

woofers.

Lenny said...

Very impressive - way to go, Jackson! Some dog toy company should hire you to do market research and test all of their toys.

Your friend, Lenny

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

I like your consumer reports, they are very informative Jackson.

Thank you so much and Merry Christmas to you and your no longer Stuffies!


Long may you reign, Jackson The Destroyer.....has a kinda ring about it!

love and many destructive licks, Marvin xxxxxx

And pale wings fanned by silver flight
A frosty hill with tender glow
Of countless stars that shine on snow."
I wish you peaceful reflections during this frozen time!

Hey Jacksons,

Do you know our governator, Ahnolds? You and his movin' pictures persona have a lot in commons. Maybe you should runs for governor. Cooools!

HAPPYS HOLIDAYS!!

Arabella said...

Wow! You sure are rough on your toys. You mom will have to get you something really tough like triple stiched fire hose.

I'm glad you got your card in time for the holidays!

Stanley said...

Jackson Boy!

You really need to get a quality control gig. Seriously. Sophie or I could be your agent and work you out a sweet deal with all the major toy companies.

I think you could be the dog that throws the proverbial gauntlet down to these toy companies... just try to develop a toy that is Jackson-proof!

I like the sound of that.

You're my hero, man!

Goober love,
Stanley
