The best pet chew toys must appeal to both dogs AND their owners, and Bestever Japan appears to hit the bullseye on both marks with these 10 curiously cute creations.
10) Do Want
Smiling broccoli chew toy, I chews you! Indeed, this two-tone green grinning broccoli floret toy is the polar opposite of the classic DO NOT WANT meme featuring a peeved pooch giving the evil eye to a proffered late of the “vile weed”.
9) Duckbill Season
Hunting dogs in Australia must get very, very confused at times. The only marsupials American dog-owners have to deal with are possums, however, so this chewable representation of one of Australia's – if not the world's – weirdest critters is sure to please. Bonus: the platypus chew toy doesn't have venomous spurs on its hind legs like real live male platipuses (platipi?) do.
8) Talons Show
Hmm, Bestever's site didn't show any images of dogs gnawing away on this gnarly chicken foot chew toy, wonder why? That said, this funky faux fowl foot would make an ideal foil for a dog-park game of fetch, freaking out other dog-owners who make do with, say, actual sticks.
7) Tempura Tantrum
Your dog is sure to run a tempura-ture when they get a load of this fluffy tempura shrimp chew toy. Who says fried foods aren't good for you? This one actually encourages exercise.
6) Corn Dog
Where is your cob now? Aw shucks, this cute corn-on-the-cob chew toy will give your pup hours of stimulating exercise and you won't have to floss its teeth for clingy kernels afterwards.
Stupid Flanders, all squid smile, even when they're being chomped on by playful canines! And oh yeah, those canine canines are gonna leave a mark... NOT. That's the cool thing about squid chew toys: they can take a lickin' (or worse) and come out smiling.
4) Donkey Outie
We don't want to be mulish nor make an a$$ of ourselves but there's something about a grinning donkey being chewed up & chomped on by a playful pup. We THINK that's a grin though from the looks of it, this is one donkey that won't be plowing any fertile fields, if you know what we mean, anytime soon.
3) Dog & Cattle
Don't have a cow, man... wait, scratch that and chew it too! Pups of all sizes will feel like Dogzilla once they put the bite on this non-toxic latex rubber Holstein chew toy. Buy one and before long they'll be wanting an udder.
2) Me So Thorny
Fair is fair so why not give your dog a chew toy that can bite back? Just kidding – this soft green cactus chew toy neither has pricks nor will it make you be seen as one.
1) That'sa Moray
You'd be eel-advised NOT to get this wiggling wriggling sea creature chew toy for your favorite pet. Though it's neither eel-lectric not eel-lastic, this eel-longated chew toy is sure to leave any dog feeling... eel-lated.
