Mama Buzz: Crazy Critters and Bark-Off Reviews and Giveaway

I don't own a dog.  My friend Eva, whose office is next to mine at work, doesn't have children.  She at least acts like she enjoys stories about my kids and I enjoy her stories about her dog Izzy.  When complimentary review samples of Crazy Critters and Bark-Off were offered to MamaBuzz bloggers, I asked her if she wanted them.  She thought Izzy would enjoy the Crazy Critter, and while she didn't need the Bark-Off, she had a friend who was looking for some way to curb her dog's barking.  So, without further ado, let me introduce Izzy:

When I gave the Crazy Critter to Eva she exclaimed "Izzy's going to love it!" and then proceeded to tell me she gave it 15 minutes and than told me the order in which Izzy would dismantle the toy, starting with the squeakers in the head and tail. While she turned out to be right about the squeakers, the rest of the toy lasted until Izzy lost interest in it. I wonder if it will be in tatters next time it catches Izzy's eye?

The Bark-Off went to the home of Izzy's friend. Unfortunately the first unit I got was broken in transit, but when I reported it, the nice folks at TeleBrands, who had provided the complimentary review samples, sent me another one.  Unfortunately, the new one came while I was on vacation and has not made it to its new home yet.  I'll report on it later.

Here is a video:

You can purchase both the Bark-Off and Crazy Critter at Walgreens and other stores for about $10.00 or you can order on-line: and

  4. Izzy is adorable and a sweetheart. I know that my dog would lavish love on this toy since he adores toys and is a loveable type. He walks around the house with a toy in his mouth and by his side. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com
