Toys: Peanuts' New Rag

Meet Moppy! Costing less than a dollar with priceless allure to Peanuts...
Brought to you by our local grocery shop. I'm fund of making toys for peanuts. One of the first thing we played together was an old shoelace. And it never loses its appeal to her. 
  
The Story of our first toy ( which isn't Moppy)

To make playtime more fun, at one end of the shoelace, I tied a plastic cup that makes sounds when being pulled. She grew obsessed with that plastic cup the moment she had her sights on it (which isn't exactly something good), so I incorporated it in our playtime rather than having her chase it endlessly.

Peanuts Mural. Here she is looking up momentarily to have her picture taken. It looked a whole lot worst when I took it.

  1. You can spend thousands on fancy toys, but in the end all they want is a bit of string with a knot in the end ... oh and a box to hide in! lolol

    1. True true true. And we even forget the paper. OH MY GOSH, THE PAPER!!!

      All they want is to tear it apart and chew it all up.

  2. Wow... that toy looks extremely chewable. I'm already imagining playing with it in my head. ^^ Have fun with that toy, Peanuts!

    1. It looks pretty because of the colors. And she just loves it when I hang it up and she goes tugging it over and over again even when I'm gone.

      I keep the toy a little later so that she gets to miss it.

  3. My dogs love mineral water bottles but it makes too much noise and Wawa thinks plastic is edible. Thank you for visiting my blog and yes, we're all Chinese! Haopee sounds Chinese...? That is a lovely mural and Peanuts is very cute...^_^

  4. Yes we can find toys to play with everywhere - squashed plastic plant pots, old socks, cardboard tubes - all free fun. But we won't say no if our humans want to buy us toys too :-) love from Magic xx

    1. Have you ever experienced not wanting to play with any of them. My older dogs don't like playing with toys. They only like lazing off.

    1. Oh dear. Not the cords! When Peanuts does that I always say "PSST! NO" or "Peanuts, no!" and she stops.

      Hi, you two. Your Terminator Set Adventure was funny.

    1. Those plastic bottles can be an object of obsession. They make great noise makers.

      Haha, I bet those feather dusters look like chicken to you guys.

    1. She loves it. And it keeps her from biting something else... like her most recent favorite chew toy... COAL- not my dog coal but CHARCOAL.

    1. I know what you mean. That's why I told my self I got to have one... It's supposed to be a replacement for your mop. Good thing the stitch work on it was pretty good. Not bad for a a dollar, right?

    1. That's awesome, you three. First of all, I'm glad your mom got a hang to get that followers thing. I didn't know how to use feed burner anyway. And I don't use Google Reader either.

      Thanks for the Award! I'll get to it right away.

  14. What a great, colourful, new toy Peanuts has got!! (See, who says us Dogs are colour blind - Tee Hee!!)

    I get lots of homemade toys too, like the roll from the paper towel that I can shred, then Mum tidies up, used plastic drink bottles I can unscrew the top off - and also soft toys the kids are done with!! As you guessed, I've now got quite a stash of very inexpensive, cool toys!!

    Have fun guys,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
