Like the prices on these ABO sets. The STP sale prices get you 3 nice toys for the price of 1 nice toy at the local pet stores. No, they won't last forever, yes they will outlast many/most store bought toys. They have nice texture mixes to the materials to provide a little variety. The crinkly dolphin for our 2 great dane puppies (now 6 months) seems to be the most durable and popular. The dumbbell wears very well also but isn't as popular for our guys thus far. The mit is also favorite but eventually starts to lose burlap as teeth catch pretty easily. The newer mits are larger than our last order and they have sealed off the bottle opening so the bottle won't come out-definitely an improvement over the smaller one that had a "replaceable" mini bottle (the bottles just came out too easily). I'd recommend cutting off the hang ties on the toys unless you want to find your dog chewing on some mysterious thing you have to dig out of the recesses of his/her mouth later.

Yes, the toys eventually fall apart. However, all all three are the "go to" toys given to our pup to destroy instead of a real shoe or sock. She will now go get them out of her crate to shake or create the crinkle sound. The most important factor-she likes them!

After one week our 84lb retriever split the cotton looking rope dumbell into two rope balls; he ripped a corner off the jute shoe shaped toy (it got wet, our fault) but he really likes the wool dolphin with the plastic crackling noise. He sleeps with the dolphin. For the price, they're fine. Wait for a coupon if yer not sure. You can still play with the rope balls.
