This ball is will make you smile, our dog can destroy an anvil but not this ball. Love the way it flashes and it is made of very durable material.
When I ordered the product, I was told it was being held to complete a back order of another I item I ordered. It has been over one month and I haven't received it yet.
X Tire Blinky Ball was too big
Our 60 lb dog found this too big after trying a few times to fetch , he gave up. His German shepherd mix friends gave up on it too. I think this needs to be down sized or only marketed to the giant breeds.

Initially ball seemed to work, dogs were interested in it, then it stopped blinking all together in same day. 2 days later, found ball blinking non-stop on counter. Never stopped blinking on it's own. Had to pull batteries out of it, which is too much of a process to do on a regular basis.
Loved the Blinky
Our Bassett puppy just loves the toy. She pushes and chases it all over the floor. Great product and toy. Will be purchasing again once she wears this one out

Our puppy LOVES this ball. Most toys come with sound to excite the dog, but our puppy is deaf so we knew something with lights would be of interest to her. Believe it ornot she has been unable to crack the plastic to this day and continues to LOVE playing with it !
Our cattle dog wasn't as interested in this toy as she was in the talking ball. Also, after only a few plays, ball wouldn't quit blinking in spite of taking apart and repositioning the batteries which are tiny.
Not a good dog toy
from Denver, CO10/22/2012
Maybe a cat would like this, but it is made of hard plastic, so there is no bouncing of this ball, and my dog didn't really like it in his mouth. Plus after the 2nd or 3rd time flashing, the ball stayed flashing for several days. Obviously a defect. I'm not sure why this product is even being sold as a pet product. I guess I thought it would be more rubbery, like some of the other flashing balls I've seen.
Very unlucky with both purchases
Flashing ball batteries lasted 1 day along with the babble ball. Really not a good buy. Sorry.
This Blinking light toy is fasinating!
Our bulldog puppy loved this Christmas gift!
It's light weight and the red ball inside blinks its light every time it is moved, encouraging the puppy to interact with it. I love that it entertains him for so long!
Con:? Our 5 month old bulldog is a chewer, on his second set of teeth? The black rubber tire (which is not rubber, but plastic) around the ball was too much for the dog to resist, and he has started chewing it. Now I have to supervise his playing with it. Still, it was a good investment, and we enjoy watching him play with it.

Brody is a 2 year old boxer, he really tries hard to annihilate his toys. He worked on this ball for about an hour, the ball won!!! This is a great toy, it's tough and lots of fun.
Ball didn't impress
from Bristol, RI10/22/2012
My dog just didn't like this ball. It was a very hard plastic so he couldn't really get it in his mouth plus he wasn't impressed with the blinking lights! It's also not very big. It could be just my dog, however, and if your dog is intrigued by flashing lights, he might like it.
Broke very quickly!
The ball stopped flashing lights within 12 hours and was not broken on the outside.

My dog loves to play with this. I think it is the flashing lights that draw him. But what ever it is he chases it up and down the hall and has a breat time.

My border collie loves balls and he also loves to chase lights (flashlights, lasers, etc) so I thought this would be a perfect combo, but he didn't seem to care about it. It sits on my desk and lights up every time I move something.
