Tissue Box Ball
Introducing a new, exciting game from the creative team that brought you Bowl Ball and Dog House Ball. It’s Tissue Box Ball!
Tissue box ball started with one of those battery operated dog toys that bounce and vibrate and bark at your dog. The protective bag over this crazy dog ball ripped, so I was looking for some alternative covering to protect my floor and Sadie from the hard plastic of the ball. I had just taken the last tissue from a box and randomly decided to drop the crazy ball into the tissue box. It fit perfectly and made the tissue box jump and dance across the floor in a very entertaining way. From that moment on, a tissue box became Sadie’s favorite playtime accessory.
Multiple times a day, Sadie will be playing with one of her squeaky balls and will drop it into one of the tissue boxes I leave on the floor for her. She then uses her paws to bat the tissue box around on the floor. She likes to make the box flip over and over until her ball drops out. Then she squeaks her ball again for a bit, before dropping it into a tissue box again. Occasionally the tissue box will get pushed into an inconvenient position, so Sadie picks it up with her mouth and moves the box to a better location before starting to bat it around again. She also enjoys having multiple boxes to choose from, which has led to there being eight to ten tissue boxes on my living room floor. But the tissue boxes on the floor are well worth it when I see Sadie’s smiling face as she runs from box to box deciding which one her ball should go into next.
