Bumble Ball I I
December 2, 2020
I have a very active 2 yr old pitbull. She absolutely loves this ball! She dances all around it and pounces on it. Loads of fun for her and for me just to watch her. Thank you. It is a good sturdy toy.
Merchant Response:We love hearing this!
Didn’t work from the start
January 21, 2021
My kids got this for our puppy for Christmas, and it wasnít operational from the start. The shaking mechanism inside was detached so it didnít wiggle, just vibrated around inside. I opened it up and put it into place, closed it and turned it on but it just came off again. Repeated and the same thing. Kids were disappointed as they were super excited. So I spent part of my Xmas trying to repair a not well built toy to try and salvage it. I emailed the company later that day, and here I am in the middle of January on hold on the phone for the second time and going to a voicemail and still havenít heard anything back. First time dealing with this company, so Iím not saying this is their norm, but itís my first and only experience. Not sure I shouldíve had high expectations of a low priced toy with moving parts, but didnít expect to have the immediate disappointment right out of the box.
- Looked like a lot of fun
- Didn?t work. Poor customer service.

The bumble balls were damaged and my pup was only able to play with it one day and I had to change the batteries. I notice after replacing the batteries and testing to make sure it was working that the little mechanism inside that helps the motor and makes the ball bounce that piece no longer stays in place so the ball no longer bounces. I call customer service and advised the young lady of this and she advised me that she would get a replacement sent out and I should receive an email regarding when the replacement will be here. I have yet to receive such email or a the replacement and I only asked for one to be replaced not both.

Toy not for medium and big dogs
October 3, 2020
We have a puppy of 5 months old and the toy he enjoyed it for 10 minutes. After that the toy was broken. A small pin inside was broken so the toy did not move that much anymore. Our dog could grab the toy easy in his mouth and he bit the rubber points off. The toy/ball went straight into the garbage can. Not a toy for labradors so it seems.
- It is a very good toy for small dogs
- Not strong enough for a puppy Labrador . Material was inside not good. Outside better but if the ball is not moving enough the dog can grab it and bite it.

not as sturdy as the older ones they break very easy they are not the same internal parts these are very cheaply made plastic too much we have been buying these for our grandson who is special needs this is the only thing he will play with for the last 11 years imagine the money we have spent on batteries bottom line the new parts and the internal making are not at all durable as the old ones were

Perfection! Loads of fun and laughter. Exactly as described, quality toy, great price and fast shipping. Highly recommend Healthy Pets and the Bumble Ball!

This is smaller than I realized and unfortunately my golden chewed the tip off within minutes of receiving it. Would recommend for less aggressive chewers.

This bumble ball is the best. It keeps the puppy entertained and keeps us laughing.
Merchant Response:LOL the bumble ball has a tendency to keep the whole family entertained.
- Awesome entertainment
- The switch is a little hard to pull out to turn off.

Cute but Obnoxious Toy
September 25, 2016
Our puppy was scared to death of it! She ran away until we turned it off!
- Very cute and fun for older dogs.

Although this ball works as described I found my grandchildren are more interested in it than the dogs are.

Wonderful toy for active dogs. We doggie sit for our "granddog". When he "Shelby" comes for a visit he loves to play with the Bumble Ball. He likes it so much that he is getting one for Christmas to take home. We have a video of him playing with it and I wish I could share that here it is so much fun to watch.

I have 3 dogs a Havenese, a Shih Tzu and a Cavashon. None of them are interested in this toy. I turn it on, set it in the middle of the floor, they look at it and then walk away. Unfortunately you can only return unopened items, since this comes attached to a card, it'd be pretty difficult to repackage. Also the batteries lasted a few minutes and had to be replaced.

Ok for light chewers
July 1, 2015
My 2 yr old Scottie loves it enough that even though I know it will probably only last a dozen or so play times, I ordered the 3 pack. DO NOT leave your dog alone to play with this toy.
- My dog gets so excited and enjoys this toy more than any of the others I have purchased for him. The action is good, although it could be bouncier.
- I ordered one of these and within the first play session it had pieces coming off. The problem is that the pieces that come out from the side are hollow plastic. If your dog is not afraid to pick the toy up then they have to use these. Being hollow they give in to the pressure and come out of the hole. Once those are all missing the ball does still work some but it is cheap plastic and again if the dog picks it up by the seam, pieces will break off.

My dog (American cocker) loves it. Carries it around, bouncing & bobbling his head. For small to medium, non-aggressive chewers, just like package says. Unless your keeping horses, retrievers and labs are not small to medium.
- Self-sufficient plaything once you've turned it on. Batteries seem to last a good amount of time.
- Changing the batteries- tiny, easy to lose screw (But not enough to kill the deal).

Have have Bought these Balls for a Long Time
June 22, 2014
My Comment is this the on and Off Pin to run this Ball needs to be of Stronger material , When pushed in to run it doesn't work at times and you have to play around with it to make it work. or at times it won't work at all.I bought 11 of these Balls last year for My Disabled son. and the pin button didn't work on Two of them right out of the Box.I don't mind buying these for him they kind of Keep him Calm and he Likes them. But to have a Product that keeps Braking down isn't right either. So if you could go back to whom makes this Product and let them know this it might be Helpful in the Rating of this Item. Thank You for Your Time.

My family used to have one of these that played the song ďwipeoutĒ. Does this version? Granted it was years ago so this may no longer be an option...

I've had this toy less than 24 hours & have already had to replace batteries which are also running out quickly. Also my Yorkie cannot pick this toy up. Do they come in a smaller size or in a rubber version instead of hard plastic? Ours hardly moves in hardwood floor.
Hello Debbie, this only comes in one size and they don't come in a rubber version.†
