Best DIY or budget toys

So, Lilo destroys EVERY SINGLE TOY that I buy him.
I thought about buying him a Kong toy, but here in Brazil they are VERY EXPENSIVE, comparing the minimum wage and currency diferences it would be as if it was $500 in the US (A LOT OF MONEY FOR A TOY). Brazil also has a lot of problems with importing things, so buying on ebay or somewhere like that wouldn't be very viable, unless it was a really cheap toy.
Do you guys have any idea of a DIY toy or a cheap toy that can survive a young golden?

Tennis balls are a favourite with most retrievers, though some enthusiastic chewers may need supervision. They should not be too expensive in Brazil.

Some very interesting ideas there.
I think that I have an old pair of jeans here, I'll try the jeans knot one.
Thanks

Ooh, Pilgrim and Lily used to have hours of fun with old jeans with knots! They made good chew toys and wonderful tug toys that lasted for ages.

We don't use tennis balls. They are notorious for wearing down a dog's teeth. Our dogs love Nylabones and Kongs. They are the only things that really last with our Goldens.

Kaizer likes Nylabones. Not sure how expensive they'd be in Brazil though

They're a bit expensive but not CRAZY expensive. How long do they last?

Most of Kaizer's have been intact thus far, which is pretty good considering his track record with chew toys.
