Well my Meatball destroys ALL my girls toys!!! I mean all of them! I'm even on my fourth crate because he eats that too! I have tried everything but so far he has destroyed toys, shoes, headbands(he actually goes to my daughters bedrooms looking for them), hangers(his personal favorite), boxes, and don't even think of having a pencil anywhere he can get to it. He has climbed tables and chairs for a pencil.
