There's something about squeaky toys that dogs just can't get enough of. Maybe it's a deep down carnal desire of wanting to hear their prey scream, or maybe to their ears the high-pitched squeal is like a siren's song. But what's for certain is that it can often be incredibly annoying to humans, so to solve that problem the geniuses at Kong added a mute button to their toys.

Just like with your TV, when the sound of your pup gnawing away on one of these colorful toys with their fuzzy tennis ball-like exterior gets too annoying, you can flip a switch which silents the squeaker. It's basically just creating an alternate hole for the air to escape, but that doesn't make it any less brilliant. And while Kong could probably demand hundreds of dollars for such innovation, thankfully the company's hawking them for just $13 to $15.

This is stupid. The point of a squeaky toy is that it squeaks, thus giving the pooch that satisfaction of killing some small animal without actually doing it. If you want a quiet pet toy, get something else.
