Default Orbee-Tuff Orbo?

I am thinking of getting my dogs this for Christmas. Does anyone here have one? I am curious if the treat hole is smaller than the Kong treat hole. Kong is waaaaay too big to put kibble in it IMO
I am hoping I can put kibble in the Orbo!

Izzy has one and I used to put kibble in it for her. It works fine even on the medium size if you use something similar in size to evo small bites. If you get the bigger one kibble will be easy to get out of the bigger hole. It's definitely smaller than the kong holes I've seen though.

The hole is somewhat smaller, but not hugely when compared to a similar size of kong. Be aware that some dogs (ahem Kes ahem) like to pull off the little land masses on the orbo or orbee ball.

TBH, while I LOVE Planet Dog toys (Sierra has an Orbee, a Strawberry, an Artichoke, an Orbee Bone, and... I'm sure there's something else) I don't love the Orbo.

The treat spot is too small in my opinion, and there are other treat holding toys that I'm more fond of.

I would like to put TOTW kibble in it. it is very small! (has anyone else noticed how tiny it has gotten?)
I will have the kongs for frozen canned food, and PB, etc

would you recommend the orbo if i just wanted it for small kibbles?
Thank you all! big helps
