Martha Stewart's New Pet Products: Toy Review And Giveaway

We're proud to bring you this review and giveaway of three of Martha Stewart's pet toys from her new line of pet products just introduced this year, and sold exclusively at PetSmart. You know, Parental Unit is a longtime fan of Ms. Stewart, but I hadn't heard of her before receiving and playing with these three new toys. Now I'm on board as a fan! Hey, I wonder if she does anything else besides make pet toys? I do know that two of her dogs, Fransesca and Sharkey, have their own blog, which I've found to be a fun and informative read.

Anyway, Parental Unit was pleased to receive on my behalf, a trio of pet toys for review. Each of the toys below is made of 100% polyester and are made extra strong for aggressive chewers-nice touch, Martha! Just to be clear, neither Parental Unit nor I received any compensation for writing this review, other than these three toys.

First up is the "Flying Woodland Squirrel" Yes, squirrel- my favorite thing to chase (real or stuffed)! This  squirrel is ideal for playing fetch because it makes a crazy, squirrel-ly sound when it's thrown that makes you want to nab it quick. And the long, stretchy neck allows for some tug-o-war before tossing. Mine is named "Dash", and I'm more than happy to dash after it when tossed!

 These are the "Flat Fur Creatures" that make a nice, satisfying crunchy sound when chewed, but are stuffing free for no mess playing. Their flat shape also makes them easy to grab and carry at a moments notice, like when you're trying to entice your Parental Unit to play with you when she's working. I received "Skully the Skunk"

And here's another squirrel with two acorns tucked in its tummy-this one's called the "Intelligent Dog Toy" because it takes some smarts to pull those acorns out and realize that they are separate toys with their own squeaker. The squirrel also makes that fun crunching sound. For some reason, this poor squirrel has no name-how about we call him "Sparky the Squirrel"? Note from the photo below that there's another, similar concept, intelligence-building toy shown on the right that is not part of this giveaway.

Here are a few (hundred) photos of me enjoying these toys, purposefully in no particular order-more fun that way!

How much of Sparky can I get in my mouth at once?
 Here I am studying Sparky's squeaking acorn: We advise supervision while playing with this toy (and all toys for that matter) because of the size of the two acorns. According to information provided by PetSmart, all of these toys were rigorously tested for any potential problems, including choking hazards, and all three toys passed with flying colors. As always, we believe that the most important preventative measure a pet owner can take is to know their dog. For example, Parental Unit knows that I grab and play, but don't rip or swallow!

Dash, is that you?

No acorns in your stomach, are there?

We hope you enjoyed this "slideshow" of me playing with my new toys... Without reservation, we give all three of them an enthusiastic, "Two Thumbs" and "Four Paws Up"! 
And now we're ready for the big giveaway. One lucky winner will win all three of these fun toys, courtesy of PetSmart!

Hello, I hope you are safe and healthy during these challenging times. I have been in the pet toy business for over 20 years. Last week we launched what we truly believe is the best fetch and retrieve throw toy ever invented. Please take a look-


I would like to send you a dozen of these to give out to your 4 legged friends. I will guarantee you the FLINGERZ will bring endless "Tail Waggin fun" to your pets! Where could I send these?

Thanks for your time
