Dog Toys Inspired By VW Parts
Even dogs like real Volkswagen Parts!
Let us tell you the fact about the dog toys that very few people know about. Do you have a dog? If so, the chances are that your dog has played with a Volkswagen-inspired dog toy.
Do you know?? The VW Bus suspension part inspires the design of the Kong (world-famous Dog toy)!!
That’s right…The Kong – a trendy dog toy, was inspired by a Volkswagen part. The creator and Kong Company founder, Joe Markham, created the Kong in the 1970s when he realized that his dog was ruining its teeth by chewing on rocks. Of course, being a pet owner, it was tough for Joe to see this.
The solution? He found that his dog enjoyed chewing on a hard rubber Volkswagen Bus suspension device. After 6 years of experimenting with different compounds that could create a chew toy of similar shape, size, and durability to the VW Bus suspension device, Markham had a win. The Kong has sold worldwide since the 1980s, and Doglopedia(2005) described the Kong as possibly the best-known dog toy in the world!
