Ah puppies. Who doesn’t just want to spoil their new friend? No matter the age of your pup it’s best to keep an eye out on their health & welfare (that includes the ever dreaded teething age). 

There are always options to consider when buying for puppies – this means no choking hazards, minimal chance of breakage and toys that are stimulating and can keep them busy too!

Say hello to the cute, corduroy hippo, isn’t she just the cutest? She’s a soft toy and works as a great comforter to new pups learning to sleep on their own. Made of certified organic fabric, non toxic materials and low eco compact dye, you just can’t get any safer than this!

She’s great for a cuddle and gentle play for those super young puppies whilst introducing them to a new home. Also a great introduction for puppies who have yet to enjoy play with rubber or latex toys.
