This week, we’re taking a look at one ofStory’s favorite toys—a ball! This is the Crackle Heads ball made by JWwhich is quickly becoming one of our favorite brands for outside-the-box toy ideas and thisone is no different! On the outside is a durable and quite thickrubber that’s certified non-toxic meaning it’s been tested and confirmed to not includelead, arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, mercury, or selenium.
On the inside is the same plastic most waterbottles are made of for that dog-satisfying crackle sound of which you’re probably alltoo familiar.
Enough! –Sigh- So, now that you know which toy we’retesting this week, let’s roll this baby on over to Story to see how it holds up aftera week’s heavy abuse.
Annnnnnnnd here it is! But before we get into the review, I justwanted to let you know that Hurricane Irma is looking like a direct hit for us so ifthere’s no content next week, it may be because we lost power or internet.

Any who, on with the review! Starting off with the toys strengths, theCrackle Heads ball is super tough.
Story has been straight up chewing this thingfor hours now and there’s hardly a dent in the rubber.
For some reason, when we toss the ball, ittends to want to bounce toward the left but it’s not really a bad thing.
The awkward bounce keeps Story on her toesand entertained.
Not much else to say.
It turned out exactly how advertised.
Good job! Now on to the weaknesses of the toy and ohmy god this thing is loud! It’s kind of hard to describe but let’sjust say it sounded like someone beating the crap out of a kickball with a cricket bat.
Even after I punctured the thing with an X-ACTOknife, it still was super loud until the plastic finally collapsed on itself at which pointit was just a crunchy sound as Story chewed it.
But other than that, there wasn’t much elsewrong with the toy.
And now it’s time for the final verdict! The JW Crackle Heads ball receives a 2 outof 5 bones.
Although it’s a solid toy that lived upto the adverts, it’s simply too loud to enjoy.
Had they made the inner plastic bit a littlesmaller so that it wasn’t squeezed against the rubber outside, it likely wouldn’t beas loud.
It also could do with a vanilla scent or alittle something extra to make it stand out from the plethora of other JW products outthere.
And that’s where we end this week’s episode.
