Spike Gives It Four Paws Up!

I was at a rather high-end toy store not too long ago, and I was looking for a ball for my daughter.  I had made some out of wadded-up aluminum foil, which she loved, so I was looking for something a bit less homemade.  Not that there’s anything wrong with homemade, but I just wanted a ball that was actually a ball. So shoot me.

Anyhoo, I happened upon something called a Wiggly Giggly ball at this store.  When you roll the ball, it has squeakers inside of it that move as it rolls, thus creating very amusing “squirk” and “squork” sounds.  I thought my daughter would enjoy the added bonus of the squeaks, so I went ahead and bought it.

Well, we all liked it so much, I was about to do a specific post on it, recommending it for one and all.

Little did I know, this toy was REALLY for one and all.

You see, as the great Google showed me, the Wiggly Giggly ball is primarily a dog toy.

On Amazon, the reviews mostly say stuff like, “Choppers really gets a kick out of the squeaks!” and “Buster can hardly stop rolling this ball around the yard!”

Even all the YouTube videos are ones with dogs:

So great, Mother of the Year over here bought her daughter a product intended for dogs. Granted, mine does not have little dog paws all over it, which would have been a dead giveaway, but how was I to know?  I figured the rich people who normally populate that type of store would be averse to purchasing a dog toy for their precious offspring.

Next time I’m looking for a new toy for my daughter, I’ll skip the pricey toy store and hit Petco instead.
