This is one of Bogie Carter's favorite toys. A christmas gift from our neighbor that she made from the scraps from the popular hand tied fleece blankets. She just took long strips, plaited them into a long rope, and tied knots on each end. We play tug-a-war; tie it in a big knot for throwing and Bogie tries to untie it by shaking it to death; or long like it is and he loves to lead you around the house with it. Easy to wash when dirty, and a great home made toy.
