Do You Perform Toy Surgery?

Our tough chompers can annihilate toys in no time, so I bet there's quite the market out there for replacement squeakers ($2 for four). North works so fast at killing, I'd need an assembly line to keep all his stuffies filled and sewn shut! Have you ever performed toy surgery to refill with something like this?

I do not know how many faces I had to sew back together or butts.

I buy these to make my own toys with. Old leans are the best!!

Yep! I just gave a new "scalp" to one of Logan's fleecy toys and sewed up a few seams on some others. He's kind of rough on his toys - shaking them around and whatnot - but likes the stuffed ones so much that I don't mind doing surgery now and then. I was just thinking yesterday "I wonder if I can just buy squeakers" and now I know I can!!

I just keep restuffing toys with bits of other dead toys until there's not enough left to restuff and then I throw them away.

Nope. It would all be in vain. Right after I 'd have sewn it, Chico would rip it apart it two seconds. Vicious little thing.

I actually remove the squeaker from Thor's toys... then stitch them back up!

We've never done surgery--Chester destroys so many animals (he's a big fan of the ones that make noise) that we just go to Goodwill and buy the bulk bags of stuffed toys for him!

Our cats sometimes "kill" their mice. The stuffing goes everywhere and I chuck them in the bin. Cat toys are inexpensive to replace.

LOL no I do not, but it isn't a bad idea. I only buy toys without the fluff inside (but yes to a squeaker). Otherwise she eats the fluff!

ha I'm glad I'm not the only one who calls it surgery. I don't usually replace squeakers, but I sew up seams all the time so he can pull out the fluff. THat's all he seems to care about!
