Puppies play with sonic toys: Toys can be dangerous for children
Posted On July 16, 2021
In a video posted on YouTube on Wednesday, three-month-old puppies and a three-year-old dog played with toys made by two toy companies that offer sounds ranging from whistles and laughter to barking and whirring.
In the video, which was uploaded on Wednesday and has been viewed more than 14 million times, the puppies and dog can be heard barking and whimpering, before the two toy makers announced that their new toys were designed to prevent people from having pets while playing in their homes.
“You could say this is a game-changer,” said John Gee, a former toy-maker who is now a senior policy analyst for the Humane Society of the United States.
“They have an idea and they want to see it implemented.”
Gee told Al Jazeera that he believes the new toys, called Sensory Play, are the first of their kind in the US.
“These toys are designed to protect the owner from the noise and to keep people safe,” Gee said.
“They are designed so that they don’t play together or come into contact with each other.”
The toy makers said the Sensory Toy, which they call the “Tango” and the “Wiggle,” can play with a range of different sounds.
“You can turn the volume up, turn the sound down, and even play the tone,” a video from the company’s website says.
“This can be a real deterrent.”‘
There is no harm in this’Gee believes the toys are a positive step for reducing the number of pets that end up in shelters.
“If you’re thinking that this is the end of the world and you’re just going to throw your dog out of your house and throw him in the woods, that is not going to be a good solution,” GEE said.
He also thinks the toys can be an important tool for animal welfare advocates who want to encourage owners to reduce the number and size of their pets.
“I think there is no question that having a lot of animals in a home is a terrible thing, but it’s not the end.
They are there to help you keep your house tidy,” Gue said.
Gee added that he believed Sensory toy manufacturers are well aware of their potential to create problems.
“The owners of these toys have been very well-aware of the potential of these products to cause harm to animals,” he said.
According to the Toy Manufacturers Association of the US, the Sensure Toy and the Sensive Toy, for example, are “designed to reduce noise and discomfort, reduce the potential for injury, and enhance the sense of play” by the user.
“Both Sensory Toys and Sensive Toys Sensory are not intended to replace the ability of owners to control their pets,” the Toy Association said.
In a statement to Al Jazeera, the Toy Manufacturing Association said:”Toy manufacturers have always been a pioneer in creating new and innovative products and technologies to enhance human-animal interactions, but the industry is evolving and innovating.
We believe this trend will continue and the products and products will continue to meet consumer demands.””
As the world of toys continues to expand, we expect to see more products in the future that will be designed to address the unique needs of people and pets.”
A spokesperson for Sensory told Al Arabiya English that the company “continues to work closely with the toy industry to ensure the safety of its customers, customers, and employees”.
“We are confident that our Sensory products are safe and compliant with all applicable safety and health standards,” the spokesperson said.
