Before there were dogs, there were toddlers, and those toddlers apparently liked dog toys. These were obviously created as learning tools as well for entertainment. With eyes that closed when they were knocked down and a high-pitched noise emitted when they were crushed, it was baby’s first tactile experience with getting tangible results from applying physical abuse. I’m sure plenty of kids are the better for it. My favorite is the elephant because, well, that’s not really what an elephant looks like, is it? The lamb is a close second though, with her eyebrows, crows feet, and her ears laid back like she’s ready to attack. These were all manufactured by the Arrow Rubber Company between 1960 and 1969. They stand about 10-12 inches high and are about a foot long at most.
