“Our dogs aren’t just pets—they’re our fur kids, and we want them to thrive emotionally, mentally, and physically,” said Glen S. Axelrod, President and CEO of Nylabone Products. “Just as playtime benefits children, it has the power to do the same for our fur kids. These toys were designed to unlock the imaginations in dogs and their pet parents so they can introduce fresh and exciting energy to their typical playtime routines.”
The Creative Play Toy line includes curiosity-sparking shapes that are quirky, approachable, and intentionally abstract—inviting dogs and their pet parents to discover different play patterns and activities every day. The toys are made of Nylabone’s new innovative material that offers varying characteristics, from lightweight and squishy to bouncy and buoyant. They’re crafted from a modern-retro color palette, and each has an ownable, easy-to-remember name that captures the individual creation’s personality: Rexii, Eggi, C-Shuu, Stik-GO, Tuug, and Springa.
Nylabone’s Creative Play toy line will launch with six shapes in a variety of sizes including extra-small, small, medium, large, and extra-large. Joining Nylabone’s Power Play Toys, the new Creative Play collection further expands the brand’s dog play toy offering and is slated to launch October 2022.
Along with the line, Nylabone will launch Imagination Nation™, an online destination where Nylabone’s Creative Play coaches offer inspiration for unique, easy-to-follow play ideas, tips, and more. Pet parents will have the opportunity to learn, virtually connect, and share their own creative play experiences.
