    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A plush buddy that'll be the best sleeping companion when your pup is ~pooped.~,

    Promising review: "This toy is pretty solidly constructed. The stuffing is really thick so that my pup has a lot of 'meat' to bite into. This one has two squeakers, one in the body and one in the poop head. Rex really enjoyed tearing off her bow and has been prancing her about the house as if he has a best new girlfriend!" —AMZN Customer

    Price: $8+ (available in seven styles)

    2. A dessert daybed filled with fruit toys for your sweettart kitten., Mallory Mower BuzzFeed

    This is the single greatest purchase I have ever made for my kittos. I'm pretty sure they would pick this pie over actual food. The bed itself is soft enough to snuggle in and sturdy enough to help them feel secure. I initially purchased it with nap time in mind, but this has become both of my cats' favorite toy. The fruit isn't attached to the bed, so they can chomp on them, roll them around, hide them, and play fetch. We play with this every single day, and there is always one cat sleeping in it at night. It's seriously sweet.

    Price: $29.99

    3. A collapsable cat tunnel you can easily store flat and whip out when your cat's teenage years start flaring up and they "need some space."

    Pet parent spoiler: all cat years are teenage years.

    Promising review: "Excellent quality. This came with a long tunnel and a shorter tunnel, each with a toy on the end. I have two cats, 14 years old. One of them loves to be buried under just about anything so I thought he would love this. The first night he sat inside the tunnel for at least an hour. They love these two tunnels, especially the attached toys." —KF

    Price: $14.99

    4. A snack puzzle board for your wascally wabbit.

    This toy is also great for guinea pigs and other small pets!

    Promising review: "Both my rabbits love this! It only takes them a minute or so to clear the board, but I can tell they get excited when they see me filling it up. We use dried papaya, raisins, and herb leaves from the garden as treats. They either dig the tops off or lift them with their mouths." —buggnlugzz

    Price: $14.99

    5. A soothing behavioral aid toy with a faux heartbeat that is sure to be your puppy's ~dream~ toy.

    Promising review: "I bought this before I even got my Italian greyhound puppy because of all the good reviews. She took to it right away and sleeps with it every day. The 'real heartbeat' sound is really 'real.' And that battery lasts forever! One time I washed it by mistake and it still worked! My pup chews and drags it all around. The Velcro on the belly is really sturdy because she hasn't been able to chew it open." —Jessica Lienhard

    Price: $29.99+ (available in six styles)

    6. A rubber football to be your doggo's new favorite toy, they just need to ~chew~ on the idea (well, the football) first.,

    Promising review: "Durable rubber doy toy that my dog loves. It squeaks when hit with a paw and takes crazy bounces when you throw it. Lots of fun." —Kimra

    Price: $5.99

    7. A versatile shreddable toy that'll be a ton of fun for all kinds of small critters. How do I know? A little bird told me.

    Promising review: "If you untie the string and take the shreddable 'donuts' off the kabob, you can add them as parts to other toys. I added kabob donuts to a Mac's Spinner Sticks Natural Bird Toy. It causes my budgie (parakeet) to split his time between shredding kabob donuts and chewing on the wooden parts from the other toy. The kabob parts now last longer for me, (when compared to just leaving them on the kabob), and my budgie is generally happier with toys that have a mix of parts." —Time to walk the dog, Dave

    Price: $10.03

    8. A flexible disc, so even your strongest-jawed dog can get a piece of the action without getting a piece of plastic in her mouth.,

    Promising review: "I felt bad for my dog when we would play Frisbee. He would come back all bloodied because he bit his tongue while retrieving the plastic dog Frisbee. That ended his favorite activity for the day. After doing some research I came across this. Murfee LOVES it. The rim is firm, (feels like rope), and the center is nylon material. It hovers in the air if the wind catches it, can be played with in the pool, and of course, can go to bed with your dog. They have held up with daily use for over a year." —Terri Huffstetler

    Price: $6.96

    9. A willow-branch ball your own Easter Bunny (or Easter Chinchilla) would love to find in its basket.

    Promising review: "I recently got this toy for my 7-month-old dwarf rabbit and she absolutely loves it! She enjoys tossing it around her cage and chewing on the wood. It's a fantastic toy and I would recommended it to any owner of a rabbit!" —Lynn Palazzolo

    Price: $3.29

    10. A lookout tower for shorty hamsters, gerbils, and mice who have ~high~ expectations when it comes to their habitats.,

    Promising review: "My daughter's hamster loves his lookout! It's made well, easy to add on, and is quite entertaining not only for the hamster but for us to watch him play and have a good time!" —Kimberly Vipperman

    Price: $6.85

    11. A plush log toy even your most shy and ~squirrely~ pupper is gonna adore.

    Promising review: "My lab fell in love with it! I got the 'Ginormous' one. It is tall and comes with six squeaking squirrels. He is having a blast and already has removed one squeaker, but the squirrel is still intact. The stitching is very good and durable. He is particularly interested in chewing the cardboard base, (cardboard between the fabrics for support). Finally a toy that challenges and excites him." —Capt. Ken Caine

    Price: $6.39+ (available in four sizes)

    12. A catnip sushi set that'll give your four-legged sous chef something to do while you try to make your own tuna salad sandwich.

    Promising review: "I figure if I'm going to have to step over a million cat toys for my four babies they might as well be awesome and these are just that! They are so cute! I totally love them. The cats love them too and I'm constantly finding them in my bed because they carry them around with them and they like to play in my blankets. They are so cute and fun and the cats love them!" —Danielle Thompson

    Price: $15.99+ (available in four sets)

    13. A coconut home — it's gonna be the getaway vacation spot of your little critter's dreams.,

    Promising review: "This is such a fun find for my English budgie. She loves to whistle or talk in it, I think she likes the echo. I catch her sleeping in there, too. She wasn't sure at first, but I made sure the ladder was secure enough to ensure her confidence, and also put some spray millet in there. It didn't take long before she liked it." —Candace

    Price: $8.30

    14. An automatic hunting toy you'll wanna ~pounce~ on yourself before they all sell out!

    Promising review: "We foster kittens a litter at a time and have a room just for them. This toy helps on so many levels. At a certain point, kittens become very excited to explore the world beyond the door. They miss us when we cannot spend hours sitting and playing with them. So to help ease the disappointment when we leave their room, we turn this bad boy on and they go nuts for it! The mouse is unpredictable, has four speeds, and goes forwards and backwards, stopping at one of the three mouse holes at random to flit in and out of it for several moments before changing directions or moving on around the track again. It runs for a good 10 minutes and by then we have gotten out and are settled elsewhere, then the kittens go about their normal playing when the toy turns off." —Jennifer

    Price: $27.95

    15. A rabbit rolling log to help even the grumpiest of rabbit roommates get ~alog.~,

    Promising review: "One of the few toys that my bunny actually showed an interest in. Honestly, it's the first toy that has gotten his attention so I give it five stars. (Trust me, I have literally bought every rabbit toy that was made.)" —FishResearcher

    Price: $10.08

    16. A pack of colorful springs that'll keep your cat from bouncing off the walls.,

    Promising review: "These are very lightweight, so they travel very far when batted. Their shape changes to keep cats engaged. And my dog seems to have no interest in them since there's no thick plastic to chew on." —AFDP

    Price: $4.45

    17. A durable hollow chew toy made to fill up with treats and handle some intense love from every kind of dog — it may be the only thing your pup licks more than your face.

    Promising review: "We have pit bull and this is the first toy that has EVER stood a chance! We still marvel a few times a week that it has lasted a month. Our girl will rip a brand new tennis ball to shred in 10 seconds flat. No object prevails once she has decided to destroy it! Except for this! This has lasted dozens of fetch sessions for us so far. The best thing about this toy is the bounce capability. This makes it easy for me to throw and our dog gets to run farther to fetch." —Nic261

    Price: $8.41 (available in six sizes)

    18. A set of six mini-sneakers your bird is gonna love with all their heart and ~sole.~,

    Promising review: "My African grey parrot loves her sneakers! I untie the laces and then retie two ends together and hang them over a perch or a cage bar. She patiently will link by link pull up her sneaker and take great pleasure in completely destroying them." —Cher M

    Price: $10.99

    19. A tough ball that'll bring true joy to every good boy.

    Promising review: "My German shepherd plays fetch constantly and mouths the ball all the way back. She also sleeps with her ball. She is never without one. These are affordable, they last for quite a while, and I don't have to worry about them damaging her teeth." —WndyNewton

    Price: $11.36 (available in three sizes).

    20. A collapsible three-way tunnel that's a great escape for cats, puppies, and rabbits — no matter where playtime takes them.

    Promising review: "I got this for my lionhead rabbit since he's very curious and loves to play. I barely had this on the ground before he was running around in it and poking his head through the hole in the center! He will move it around as he likes it, so even though I will put it one way, he will push it with his nose until it's where he likes it. I've already taught him that when I ring the bell that it's treat time, so he'll come to that end and eat his treats out of my hand." —Dear Abby

    Price: $19.97 (available in 22 colors)

    21. A peek-a-prize box that'll stimulate your kitto's hunting instincts and encourage them to think outside (well actually, inside) the box.

    Promising review: "This is a huge favorite and has held my kitten's interest; I keep this out all the time and he loves the little striped balls that came with it. He learned to get the little balls out and then quickly discovered how to drop them back in to start the game over again. To keep it interesting, I hide new things in it like catnip mice, mylar 'tinsel' balls, and edible treats like his favorite, dehydrated mice." —Desert Gypsy

    Price: $22.39

    22. A pretty caterpillar your fashion-savvy pups can wear like the feather boa they destroyed from last year's Halloween costume.,

    Promising review: "This is our pups' favorite toy. They've had it more than six months and it's still intact and squeaking!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $22.08

    23. A treat-dispensing ball to give your hungry pup yet another reason to love playing ball.

    Promising review: "Wow. This is the best treat dispenser I've bought my dog. He absolutely loves it! It takes seconds to fill up with treats and my dog is busy for at least an hour. He actually gets quite the workout too because he's pushing this thing all around the house. If you have hardwood floors like me, it will be on the loud side. But one reviewer suggested covering it with a sock. Genius. I had doubts that a plastic ball could survive weeks of use without cracking, but it's been over a year and this sucker is still going strong. It's indestructible — and easy to clean! It's just been a ball of fun for my dog. Don't know what I'd do without it, so I'm buying another one." —logicwand

    Price: $9.70+ (available in four sizes)

    24. A fishing kit your own catfish is gonna adore.,

    Promising review: "Both my kittens enjoy the toy attached to a stick and ring. They liked chasing after the loose toys. It's been a couple months and they (amazingly enough) haven't gotten sick of these toys yet." —Julia

    Price: $12.95

    25. A tug-of-war toy so soft on your dog's chompers you won't have to worry about your K-9 losing a canine while ruff-housing.

    Promising review: "My dogs LOVE to play tug, but one of my girls has not-so-great teeth, so ropes basically end up pulling her little front teeth out and make her bleed. This toy, however, doesn't do that. She can tug and tug and tug and no issues! They get it all stretched out in a line, and then it just bounces right back! When things start to get nuts, I can walk up and just pull this out of all three of their mouths. Whatever it's made out of makes it easier because they don't get their teeth actually embedded in the toy, like they would a rope." —Alicia L. Silva

    Price: $17.95 (available in three colors)

    26. A mirror that'll thrill your vain-AF parakeet.

    Promising review: "Not only does the bird love it, but he sleeps on top of the mirror. Go figure. The bird liked the price, too. He called it 'cheep.'" —George

    Price: $7.04

    27. A French fry plush toy for the fast foodie in your life.

    Promising review: "This is the second toy from this maker I have bought and I LOVE them. More importantly, so does Lola! They last forever and she gets so excited. The best part is that she hasn't been able to tear it apart yet. I decided I was going to buy her a new one each month until she has them all :)" —Reynold Wang

    Price: $6.40+ (available in nine styles)

    28. And a savory snack puzzle, because finding a product this great will be a genuine treat for both you and your pet.,

    Promising review: "My way too smart cattle dog puppy finally can't figure out a puzzle game in minutes. The first day she was only able to open the parts that slide and after a few days she was able to figure out the game. The good thing is that you can use the little tower things and make the game different each time. This is definitely the best puzzle we have bought her. She gets really tired after playing with it. Every day we use it, she is excited to play with it. With other puzzles that are easy, she just gets bored after she figures them out." —Laura

    Price: $9.76
