Flappy Toy Fun

Whoopee! New toys for us woofies. Jan hasn't bought us any new toys in ages, so we jumped at the chance to test some Flappy Toys. All we have to do is have fun playing with them and blog about our experience. This should be interesting and Jan can't complain about it costing her an arm and a leg or a gallon of blood.

Guess even the ktities are feeling deprived on our no-frills budget. Notice Cyndi is the the first one to check out our new toys.

Cyndi: I'm just checking out the box. The box is mine!

Buddy: Sniff, sniff. This passes the sniff test.

We received one Tuffy Flappy (green) and one Fleecie Flappy (orange).

Sam: Okay, let's trade. (Notice Cyndi watching from the safety of a scratching post.)

Sam: Wait a minute. Buddy always gets the best of everything. Maybe I should trade him back again. Just in case.

Sam: As you can see, Buddy wouldn't trade again.

Buddy: Ha, ha, ha, ha! I fooled Sam into thinking I have the better toy.

Sam: Okay, Buddy finally traded again. He looks happy with this one. So, what's wrong with the green one?

Sam: I got the Fleecie back!

Buddy: Give me that back! It's mine! You traded the Tuffy for it.

Merci: Those two are too big for me to play tug with any more, so Jan brought me outside so I can have a turn. Whoo hoo, I can play rough with it. Shake, whap. Oh, sorry, Jan.

Merci: Take this. And that.

Merci: Ooops. Dropped it. Oh, come on, Jan. Take a hint! Play tug with me. I could beat you!

As you can see, we've been having a lot of fun with our new Flappy Toys. We woofies love to play tug and we love to chew. Jan is happiest when we're not chewing on the furniture or destroying toys. We've had them for nearly a month now and they're -- believe it or not -- still in one piece.

There are 5 types of Flappy Toys: Tuffy, Fleecie, Fluffy, Flossy and Floatie. Jan says she likes that they are all machine washable, except for the Floatie. We don't understand what her problem is. We think toys taste better when they're wet with saliva, covered in fur and you can't tell what color they used to be.

You can read about them on the Flappy Dog Toys site.

PS: There is a contest going on through the month of May, where you might be the daily winner of a Flappy Toy. We just tried half a dozen times and even though we typed in the correct code(s) to validate our submission and prove we're not a robot, it kept telling us the code was wrong. Maybe it only works with Internet Explorer. There are still a couple of days left in May, so try it, woofies. You might win yourself a Flappy Toy.

  8. Nice toys. The woofies enjoyed them. Cyndi didn't want to join them?

  9. Wow, they stood up to the whole Funny Farm test! We think it's a little bit funny that the floatie can't be washed since it sounds like it's for water!

  11. That looks like it was fun! Hey, I went to that Flappy site and my submission went through. Did you use all caps? You're supposed to..maybe that was it? I'm using Firefox so it wasn't a browser thing.

    Thanks for missin' me..yeah, mean people can sure getcha down..I haven't a clue why they'd say such things, but it's not worth it to dwell on it.

  12. Oh what fun! I bet Diamond would love those!

  13. Woo don't get many toys bekhause woo live with some real live furry feline ones!

  14. Hello there lucky doggies. What great looking flappy toyes you got. We think its funny how all dogs have to wrestle each other for the ONE particular toy when they have so many others strewn about.

  20. Whenever Copper goes to get his haircut, The Missus lets him pick put a new toy at Petco. You'd think we had three infants around here with all the toys in the house.

  21. Thanks for you nice comments on the Blogoversary!

  23. The Flappy toys look fun. It's grea that they came in a box for the kitties too, everyone wins.

  24. You guys are so funny! That was almost like a show to watch, hahahahahahahaha! We haven't had new toys in ages - so a few days ago I got myself my own toy. And the maid got REALLY mad for some reason. Doesn't she understand that hummingbirds are GREAT toys....?
