Great bounce, chewable & bite-able, The beasts like the minty flavor. They love to fetch them and played with them on their own. Emrys especially acted as if the Orbee Ball were tempting her and teasing her to bite it. See Orbee Toy Test Photos.

Beast Review:
reviewed
December, 2003

Great bounce, chewable & bite-able, the small is the same size as a raquetball but easier to pick up with their mouths. The medium is too big to fit in their mouths but great for chewing. It is a bit heavier than the small but Emrys carries it around in her mouth with no problem. Another plus is the Orbee material doesn't pick up much floor-lint unlike the raquetballs.

The Beasts have not been able to put a dent in the balls. I cut off the bungee cords after 5 minutes - they are made of thread covered rubber and began to get torn up right away. Extra points to Planet Dog for letting buyers know in the catalog that the bungees are not dog-proof. The Beasts really enjoyed tugging & chewing on them & were disappointed when the cords disappeared - but Bostons will be Bostons and they had to go.

Lifespan:

Still counting from December 21st 2003

Cost vs. Durability:

If they last as long as I think they are going to last these balls will be well worth the purchase price. They cost as much as a premium plush squeeky toy and we all know how quickly those cute-fuzzies are demolished!

Safety:

Safe if used without the bungee. If you get the bungee for fun - just supervise all play with the Orbee.

Boston Proof?

We'll see...it looks promising!
