TOY REVIEW: The Monster Mouth

Since I've already confessed to having more toys than the average three year old, I guess it's OK to dedicate this post to the latest and greatest best toy ever*.

It's called The Monster Mouth and the thing I like most about it is, well, its monstrous mouth. My human stuffs it full of yummy stuff to eat and even though it takes awhile to get all the food out, I have a feeling that's the point. Otherwise it'd just be a food bowl and there's nothing really all that fun about a food bowl.

The Monster Mouth comes in one color (green) and two sizes, big and bigger. I'm a big fan of the bigger mouth, but see that look brother Dutch is giving me? That's his way of saying the bigger mouth is supposed to belong to him. I always get stuck with the small stuff but my human says the smaller of these two mouths is still "plenty big".

The thing that makes The Mouth better than other stuffable toys we have is its easy to hold, no-escape shape. The Kongs we have are cool, but they always run away and get stuck under the couch. I used to be able to retrieve them myself, but the last time I tried that I got stuck and my human had to lift up the couch to get me out. So now we just bark when stuff gets couch-bound and I don't think my human likes that a whole lot. Which makes her a big fan of The Mouths too.

(*Note: I mean the best indoor toy ever. The Chuck-it-Stick on a rope thing still rules the outdoors.)

-- Summary --

Entertainment value: 4 out of 4 paws
Tastiness: varies (depends on what your human fills it with)
Duration of play: approx 30 mins (per filling)
Durability: seems pretty indestructible
Value? (my human made me put this): Might seem a bit pricey for a toy that doesn't really do anything, but it's a really good investment. It can be filled with just about anything your human has lying around the kitchen. The Monster Mouth is also green. Not just green-colored, but green like eco-friendly. It can be filled, consumed, and washed a million times over.

I love the look on Dutch's face! My big brothers give me that look all the time.

Rosie,

Do your big brother's let you win all the time too??

Brother Dutch could squash me like a bug but he never does. I don't know why. I usually just get "the look".
