Looking for an nearly indestructable dog toy? @Crinkits might be your answer!

Water and soda bottles have been favorite toys for the pups here in the lost world for years. It’s gotten to be a habit of mine, before tossing a plastic bottle in the recyling bin, I toss them to the furkids for a playtime work out. They love them and will play with a bottle for hours before I take it away and toss it.

I’ve actually never come across a dog that didn’t love that crunch crinkle crunch sound they make when gnawing on a bottle. Even our senior Fleego, who is nearly deaf, gets distinct pleasure from it. The only drawback is when they all get going at the same time…it’s a symphony of crunch crinkle crunch that can be a bit annoying when one’s two legged family is trying to talk or watch something on the tube!

We were recently sent a variety of a great new toy called Crinkits by Zigoo Pets to try and then tell you about. Crinkets came about while designer Zach Day was looking for a way to make his dog’s favorite toy, you guessed it – a water bottle, more durable. After several After several prototypes were tested, the final result was a rubber-like toy that provides a protective barrier around an empty water bottle, made from an innovative material. Crinkits are made of ZIGLFEX, which is 100% non-toxic, natural,recyclable and smells great! ZIGFLEX is FDA approved, highly durable, contains NO BPA’s or Phthalates, and floats! That’s right… Crinkits can double as a water toy! The special material also easily rinses clean, so after a long day at the beach, you can bring Crinkits home, rinse it off and not worry about getting sand all over the house! Crinkits are also made in the USA! I like that!

The only drawback to Crinkits, for me, was stuffing the empty water bottle inside of them. The directions suggest using a bit of soapy water to facilitate it and then rinsing the toy well afterward. They also suggest using a smaller water bottle (8 or 12 ounce) and that’s what did the trick for me. You can also stuff a Crinkits with your furkid’s favorite treats for a new kind of adventure.

I have to mention how durable this toy is. Two of my pups are pit bulls and what I like to call ‘super chewers’. Briefly, this means they can chew through a solid wood door in 47.5 seconds, destroy an entire couch in 22 seconds, and eat a pair of fake Louboutins without having to take a breath. These two have yet to make even a mark on their Crinkits! Have I said that I LOVE this toy?

Crinkits are available in several bright fun colors and in sizes to make all of your furkids happy. They can be purchased online at the Zigoo Pets website and retailers like or you can check the handy dandy product locator to find a retailer near you. Zigoo would also love to connect with you on Facebook and Twitter, too!

    This is one that I have not seen yet. I will have look for it at our local Pet Smart. That’s where we like to go.
