Hanukkah is here and while lighting the menorah, giving gifts, and eating latkes and sufganiyot are common traditions, make sure you don’t forget your pup this holiday, Luckily, Target has a bunch of Hanukkah toys so your dog can get a present on each of the eight nights.
The first toy is an incredibly cute penguin that says “Toy Vey” on it. Does it get more adorable than that? I think not. The sweater is blue with light blue ruffles and it’s also wearing a matching hat. It’s packed with fluff and crinkle material and includes a squeaker. It’s only $6.99 on Target’s website.
The next toy is, of course, a dreidel. Target actually has a few dreidel-shaped toys for dogs. There is a brown one with stuffing and a squeaker for $14.99 and a tug-of-war blue dreidel toy for only $3.50.
Everyone’s favorite discount store also has a menorah sugar cookie toy. Sadly, it’s not edible (sorry doggos), but it is plush, includes a squeaker, and is quite large. This might not be the toy for a smaller dog as they may not be able to get their little mouths around it.
There are lots of Hanukkah dog toys available at Target
There is also a polar bear toy with a blue “Happy Hanukkah” dreidel and a blue yarmulke for $17.99 and a blue and white Star of David rope toy for $14.99.
More interested in getting a whole set of toys? Target has that as well. The Hanukkah dog toy gift set is like a Hanukkah advent calendar with a toy for each night. The toys include a blue and yellow rope toy, two dreidel toys, two blue tennis balls, an apartment building toy with menorahs in the windows, a “Love and Light” blue bone-shaped toy, and a little Hanukkah gelt toy. The whole set is only $14.
If you want to stick with toys that are the least religious (I don’t know how most rabbis would feel about some of these toys), I would go with the gift set or the cute AF penguin. They are more fun and don’t exactly include the most important symbols of the holiday. The bear with the yarmulke…something just doesn’t feel right about that.
And seeing a dog chewing on a Star of David doesn’t exactly scream Happy Hanukkah. Especially in the year 2022.
