Wobble Wag Giggle Reviews: Do Dogs Love It?
Review of the Wobble Wag Giggle, a toy ball for dogs which produces sounds when set in motion. It is said to be designed to hold the attention of dogs better than standard toys.
Wobble Wag Giggle Ball
Wobble Wag Giggle Ball is an As Seen on TV pet toy marketed on television. The ball is constructed of sturdy vinyl, and is covered with six “clutch pockets” which allow canines of various sizes to pick up and carry it. When nudged, rolled, or shaken, the ball emanates sounds which supposedly emulate human laughter (hence the word “giggle” in the name). These sounds, along with the ball’s color and movement design, are supposed to hold the instinctual attention of dogs.

Wobble Wag Giggle Ball Review
Overall, user reviews of the Wobble Wag Giggle Ball are somewhat mixed. Potential shoppers may want to browse additional reviews of this product on Amazon and the HSN website to decide if the toy is right for their pet. With over 700 customer reviews at Amazon, it has a 3.5 star rating as of January 2016.
Those who give it positive ratings state that the Wobble Wag Giggle Ball works as advertised, and that the toy continues to be a source of entertainment for their pet (as well as a source of amusement to some observing human bystanders). On the other hand, those giving it a thumbs down – an ample number of customers – typically offer two primary complaints:
- Some claim that their dogs were able to destroy or tear holes in the Wobble Wag Giggle Ball.
- Some claim that their dogs were frightened by, or indifferent to, the Wobble Wag Giggle Ball.
A small number of pet owners have reported that smaller dogs had difficulty grasping and carrying the toy.
Another point of contention from some consumers is the ordering process on the website, and the fact that you can’t opt out of the “Double Offer” – meaning you must pay a total of $11.90 in non-refundable shipping. This problem can be avoided by simply purchasing the product at a local retailer.
Wobble Wag Giggle Ball is a dog toy that creates sounds that resemble giggling when it is played with. Online reviews of the ball seem to be considerably varied. It may be best suited for nondestructive dogs that enjoy toys which produce noise. We recommend purchasing locally to avoid shipping charges and delays, and to give you a chance to evaluate the product more closely before making your final purchase decision.
