Tear Apart Toys by Miyow & Barkely

In the early days Soda liked to chew things. Actually strike that. Soda still likes to chew things. But in the early days, Soda liked to chew everything. I still remember vividly buying a new pair of summer wedges only for her to chew them the following day, only to buy a replacement pair… only to find those had been chewed later that week.

Nowadays Soda keeps her chewing to treats, bones and toys. Sounds perfect right? Wrong. Too often have I left a room only to walk back in and discover what only could be described as a stuffed toy massacre. Once she pulled all of the stuffing of a toy outside in the yard and I swear I thought it had snowed! The old toy would cut such a folorn figure, its white puffy innards strewn around him while Soda would stand proudly with her chest puffed out and her smiling face saying “Aren’t you proud mum? Look what I did! That pink little pig will not bother you one second longer.” Clean up would then begin and the little toy would either be sewn back together to face another day, or in the saddest cases it would be retired from the toybox forever.

After 9 years of this merry-go-round you would understand my abounding joy in the discovery of pull apart toys. With clever designs and the ingenious use of velcro these toys are MADE to be ripped apart. My two favourites are from Miyow & Barkley (don’t you love the name?):

The aptly named ‘Little Rippa’ is a chocolate and vanilla plush ball which can be ripped apart into 6 pieces and then put back together – no sewing required. Yay! Both Sodes and I love this one.

‘The Little Tearror’ is just as cute. Shaped like a bone, this plush toy has ends which tear away from the squeaky main column. Genius.
