Great for little nippers and adults alike, stuffed dog toys come in a range of dog breeds. From dog breeds such as Miniature Schnauzers, Border Collies, a King Charles Spaniel, or even a Pug, the options on simply endless. To help playtime, some dog toys come with their own accessories such as a coat, ball or treat to really help your children to understand the concepts of dog ownership through play.

Some dog toys are more realistic than others with a range of colours from the obvious browns, greys and blacks to the slightly wackier pinks and purples. There are also other animal toys sold on eBay to allow you or your children to collect them all, from cats, fish, penguins and even unicorns. Whatever you opt for, they all are pretty huggable and make for a great choice of kid's toy.

From miniature to life-size plush dog toys

Look out for the size of the dog toy you're about to buy, from miniature puppy's to life-size dog toys, all offer great fun. You can also buy from some of the leading toy brands such as Ty, Bocchetta, Keel Toys, Beanie Babies or Hasbro, or opted for a dog teddy bear that is unbranded.
