It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a … squirrel? Hartz has created an adorable line of dog toys that may look like an ordinary plushy but really are superheroes in disguise! Using a hidden rubber-strap loop, you can sling a squirrel (or a chicken!) into an open area, sending Hartz’s Stunt Pilot toys soaring through the air for a fun game of fetch with your furry friend.

Not only are the toys soft for cuddling (and cheap at just $7!), but the flying decoys with red capes come with sound effects. As the toy takes off, motion-activated sounds give your pup something to follow as he runs after his new pal. Real squirrels will thank their lucky stars they’re not the ones being fetched and retrieved!
