THE BEST Dogs

Squeakee Balloon Dog Robot

Moose Toys turned up at the 2020 New York Toy Fair with Squeakee, a robotic dog that looks just like a shiny balloon animal.

While it’s certainly not as sophisticated as Sony’s Aibo, this toy is sure to be a big hit with its quirky character – and its $60 price tag.

Dogs love tennis balls.
