Starting this month, AbsolutelyNew, Inc., a next generation consumer products company that develops the best ideas from independent inventors, is introducing four new pet toys into PetSmart stores. All four are designed to keep our feline and canine friends physically and mentally engaged, using interactive elements and natural encouragement. Two of the toys are for dogs and two are for cats. Below are descriptions of each.
• Treat Launcher™ is a fun and stylish dog toy that propels kibble treats (small or large) into the air for your pooch to chase. It features a comfortable ergonomic handle, a transparent treat cover so you can see how many treats are remaining and a loop so you can affix a wrist strap or carabiner. In addition, it does not require batteries and is dishwasher safe.
MSRP is $19.99.
• Squeeze Bones™ is a sophisticated and durable treat-dispensing toy that will stimulate your dog’s mind and mouth. When dogs bite on the pliable tubular portion, they expel treats to the rubbery spherical portion, where they are subsequently dispensed during play for the dog to consume. It features a transparent tubular section so treats are visible; natural rubber
and heavy-duty PVC; dental grooves for oral hygiene; and a paste-treat chamber. Available in three different sizes (mini, midi, and max) and three color combinations. MSRP is $12.99-$17.99 (based on size).
• Catnip Tip ‘n Twirl™ is a wobbling cat toy that holds either live or dry catnip, and dangles tantalizing feathers from a flexible line connected to the top. It features a weighted base that keeps the toy upright during play; spiral open-air vanes that allow a live plant to grow through it; and a special ring that keeps soil inside of the container, even when tipped.
MSRP is $19.99.
• Roll Play™ is a multi-function treat-dispensing catnip toy. It features a sisalwrapped exterior, which cats like to claw; a plume of feathers, which provides visual simulation; a compartment that holds dried catnip and treats; and an opening that dispenses the treats as the cat plays with the toy. The product is available in two shapes (round and cone) and three colors (red, blue and green).
MSRP is $12.99.
