Product Review: Kong Squeezz Jels

Kong Squeezz Jels are squeaky, bouncy toys shaped like animals. They are durable, colorful, and bounce unpredictably. They are available in medium and large sizes.

Brisbane loves squeaky toys, especially annoying ones. He prefers to ignore them until someone is making an important phone call and then squeak wildly at the worst possible moment. His squeaky of choice is the Cuz ball, but the Kong Squeezz Jel seemed like it would fill the same role.

I was surprised to find that Briz didn't really like the Squeezz Jels toy. He'll humor me if I toss it to him, but won't pick it up and play of his own volition. It's not just Briz either, none of my foster dogs have found this toy appealing either.

These toys are supposed to be translucent and look almost like candy, but ours is really cloudy. I suspect this happens to Squeezz Jels as they age. We tend to keep dog toys around for a long time, so I really prefer ones that age well.

Pros: Durable and annoyingly squeaky.

Cons: Translucent material grows cloudy with age. None of my dogs like it.

Bottom Line: I think these toys might be made to appeal to people more than dogs.
