Not what I was expecting
on October 17, 2015
I haven't owned this long and my dogs haven't played with it much, but I wanted to post my review of first impressions since I was surprised at what this ball really is and would have liked a better description prior to purchasing. This ball is composed of a thin fleece fabric covering a thick hollow rubber squeaky ball. I thought it was just a plush stuffed ball with a squeaky inside, which I knew my dogs would love. Most plush ball toys don't last that long, so when I discovered this Mighty Ball I thought I hit the jackpot. It's heavier than I thought it would be, especially for the size, so don't go hog wild throwing this thing around inside.
I wasn't sure on the measurements when I ordered, but I figured a medium sounded like a decent size. In real life, the medium size Mighty Ball is 4" in diameter. I was hoping for more a 5" or 6" diameter being a medium, since my original impression was that this would be a soft squishy lightweight plush ball.
One of my dogs quickly started trying to tear the fabric off the ball, so I had to take it away for a while and replace with a more durable toy as I could imagine a minute later I'd have a shredded orange mess. I'm sure one day that mess will happen, but for now they've got so many other toys they prefer that it seems this ball will be safe for a while longer. I don't consider this a durable dog toy.
The squeak this produces is pretty loud, and it squeeks both when it's squeezed and then when it fills itself back up with air, so you can get a lot of noise out of it. You can squeeze it really tight and then throw it so that when it lands it's still doing it's inhale squeak, making it seem sorta alive.
