Attention all puppy parents: the classic toys from Fisher-Price you played with as a child, like the Rock-A-Stack and the Xylophone Pull Toy, have inspired a new line of playful products designed to enrich your puppy’s playtime.
Available exclusively at PetSmart, these toys are the first foray into the pet space for Fisher-Price. The iconic manufacturer of colorful toys has been helping children learn for over 90 years.
“This exciting partnership provides a nostalgic and fun way for pet parents to engage with their pets through toys reminiscent of the ones they grew up playing with and loving.” said Kristin Shane, SVP and Chief Merchandising Officer at PetSmart.
The line consists of nine unique toys. From teething to self-soothing, each toy is designed to engage a puppy through play expending their physical energy while stimulating their mental development. Here are some of the highlights:
Fisher-Price Pets Sound-Bites Plush Dog Toy
The Fisher-Price Pets Sound-Bites Plush Dog Toy is the pup-ified version of the Xylophone Pull Toy. In place of musical tones, this plush puppy toy produces sounds of everyday objects, like a doorbell ringing and alarm beeping, to familiarize the adolescent pup. Exposure to commonly encountered sounds during this key developmental phase has been shown to reduce anxiety levels in dogs as they grow. The bone-shaped toy is made with soft material and features a rugged rope at the end for pulling playtime with their favorite human (you!).

This developmental toy is a plush version of the Pull Along Rocket toy for toddlers. With a plushy rocket-shaped center and knotted ropes protruding from two ends, your youngster will enjoy sinking their growing teeth into each textured surface.
