ChuckIt LIGHTPLAY Line Dog Toy Review

Disclosure: I received this products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


With winter nearly here, it has been getting dark earlier and earlier. While this may not seem like a huge deal to some, it is to our poor Reya. The days of running up and down our hill and spending an hour or more playing outside when we finish work are coming to an end. Now, she is lucky if she can play outdoors for more than a half hour between it the cold and dark. One of the biggest issues we have is that many of our outdoor toys aren’t very nighttime friendly. Since we love to see our Reya happy, we have been looking into more doors that can be played both indoors and out. Recently, we found the perfect solution – ChuckIt’s new LIGHTPLAY line of dog toys.

ChuckIt LIGHTPLAY Line: What is It?

Looking for some awesome toys to allow you to play up to 30 minutes outside after dark with your favorite dog? If so, we think you will love the new ChuckIt LIGHTPLAY line. These toys are designed for extended outdoor fetch and playtime anytime during the day or night, no matter what season! With the highly-visible fabric with glow in the dark 3D fabric and ChuckIt’s trusted Max Glow rubber, you can enjoy some glow in the dark fun indoors or outdoors. All you have to do is expose the toys to 5 to 10 minutes of bright light, to have up to 30 minutes of glow in the dark fun. Currently, this line includes flyers, launchers, kickballs, shake and tug toys, and more. To see how these toys work in action, check out the Petmate video below!

ChuckIt LIGHTPLAY Line: Overall

I will freely admit, these toys absolutely rock. Not only are they fun for glow in the dark play, but daytime outdoor play too! Since Reya is still working on proper off-leash behavior, we decided to have the video of her playing outside rather than in a closed up room playing with the toys. As you can see, they have Reya’s seal of approval! She absolutely LOVES playing with the launcher outside and her kickball and glow in the dark ball indoors in our kitchen. With winter nearly here, these toys are perfect for playing out in the snow or just letting out some excess energy outdoors. Based on our own experience, we are happy to give ChuckIt’s LIGHTPLAY line an A+ rating and highly recommend it to all of our readers who are dog owners.

ChuckIt LIGHTPLAY Line: Where to Purchase

    I love this! We do have a ball from another company but it only holds light for a few minutes. I love that there is a variety of toys but also that the toys hold light for up to 30 minutes!! We have a very active dog that would love, Love, LOVE this! Great holiday gift idea too.

    These are the perfect toys for a giveaway! My German Shepherd Diesel loves chasing balls especially! He will bring the ball back and drop it right at my feet and wait till I throw it again!

    these would be so super cool to have fun for the entire family

    I like these! I think they would be handy to take camping, so we wouldn’t lose our dog toys in the dark. My dog would also enjoy them in our yard at night.

    This is a really cool dog toy. My mastiff would probably chew it apart pretty quick but it would be great to have at night!

    I have five rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds and all but my senior girl, Suki, love playing with toys. They’d just love this – especially my deaf girl, Ran, who really loves toys that glow or light up.

    WOW! 30 minutes is a long time for them to retain their glow. I also didn’t know that ChuckIt had a kick and fetch ball. I’ll have to start checking my Petsmart for it. My dog LOVES to play fetch with a soccer ball but they don’t last very long!

    That’s pretty cool. Dogs need regular exercise. They get bored just like we do. Now, they can stay out a bit longer even though it gets dark earlier.

    I would love to win this for my 3 Chihuahua’s. They are very good at ripping apart there toys within an hour so it would be nice to have something more sturdy like the toys above (:

    We just brought home a dog from the shelter and she already destroyed one of our toys. We won’t be able to do rope toys, that’s for sure. These look like they’d be able to endure her playing and chewing.

    These are the coolest toys for dogs! Can’t wait to get my puppy one or two for Christmas. When summer comes we will have even more fun here in Colorado.

    I love the chuckit toys as do my dogs. I can’t wait to try these out. Especially this time of year when it’s dark out when I get home from work.

    Our Golden Retriever will love to be able to play at night with these. Such a great idea. She will go longer than 30 minutes!

    My puppies love chasing things around that light up. We got to play briefly with a friends chuck it and they loved chasing it at dusk. The toy held up good to the 3 fighting for control of it.

    My son’s boxer is very active and can use new toys for outdoor fetch! This boxer loves to play and run as fast as he can and these toys would be perfect for him!

    We just started using these for our dog since it gets dark around 6pm and he desperately needs his playtime! I am going to have to try that frisbee shown which looks kind of like helicopter blades. Glad your dog Reya enjoys them so much!
