Jabba the Hutt Dog Toy from Petco

How cute is this? Petco recently announced a surprisingly large line of Star Wars-themed pet toys and costumes, and this is one of them, but strangely it has disappeared from their website. [Edit: Now it’s back.] I was pleased to see that they had included Jabba, since these kinds of products often just feature the most popular characters like Darth Vader or Yoda and leave it at that. This is a dog toy, although I wouldn’t blame you if you couldn’t tell right away. It looks more like an oven mitt or something, and I think it could also work as a child’s toy. I guess safety standards are different for dog toys and kids’ toys, so you do have to be careful, but this particular one seems safe enough. It’s certainly soft. It’s made of a soft plush material and includes a truly prodigious number of squeakers — 18 in all, although one of mine doesn’t work. Most of them are sectioned off in his stomach area, but there are also two (one large and one small) in his head. Here’s a video to give you an idea.

I also couldn’t help picking up the cat toys they had in the shapes of Chewbacca, Yoda, Darth Vader and a stormtrooper. They’re very similar to the felt mice made by The House of Mouse on Etsy (where I got my Jabba the Hutt mouse), but sloppier in their construction. Still, they’re only $5 for a pair. I have my doubts about how long these would last in the paws (or jaws) of a determined cat, but they’re certainly cute. Did I mention that we have no pets? 😉
