Dancing Party Animals

Dancing Party AnimalsDancing Party Animals are cute dancing animals (with a speaker) that connect to your favorite music playing device! Plug in your music, and watch them start to move and groove. They will dance until the music stops.

They have a lot of fun animals to choose from. We were sent a dancing cat and a dancing dog. One alone is a lot of fun, but watching them dance together was even more fun! We used a splitter to hook them both up to the same iPod! It was fun when they would do the same move at the same time. I tried to catch it on video:

They come with the audio cable so you can get started right away! They don’t come with batteries, but only take 3 AA. You can also use a power adapter (not included) if you don’t want to use batteries.

The sound isn’t bad for a little speaker. Of course the real fun is watching them boogie to the beat. And if you just want to listen to music through the speaker, you can do that too! Just turn the dance function off.

They would make a fun gift for a young animal lover!

Simplify your cleaning routine with Neato Robot Vacuums #NeatoBestPetVacuum

logoNeato Disclosure

Everyone who loves a pet knows that they aren’t always tidy. Let’s face it, pet hair and other pet messes means more cleaning. Of course we wouldn’t trade our pets for anything in the world, which is why I am excited to share the Neato Robot Vacuum with you today! This little robot is going to help you simplify your cleaning routine!

neatodog

This is my dream robot vacuum. Not only does is it the best for pets, it has so many other features, I can’t wait to try it for myself some day (just read the rave review Daily Tekk gave it)! The Neato Robot Vacuum is utilizing some neat technology! Neato Botvision navigation allows the vacuum to navigate around objects, into tight corners, under beds, across different surfaces (carpet to hardwood) with powerful suction and brushes. Fun fact; this laser guided navigation is the same technology used in Google’s driver-less car!

The schedule feature sounds amazing. Can you imagine? Just pick the days and times when you want your Neato to vacuum for you, and let it do the rest? You can vacuum in your sleep even! It even returns itself to it’s base to recharge. Add in the larger dust bin, bigger brush, and super suction, and this is one super robot vacuum. And it’s a REAL vacuum too, not just a sweeper like competitors. Check out the fun video below to see it in action and learn more about it:

Pets spend most of their lives on the floor, or on the ground outside. Keeping your carpet clean isn’t just for looks, it’s also for health, both for your pet and for the people in your house. Neato Robot vacuums can pick up dust and dirt particles as small as .03 microns! That is some deep cleaning friends! Think of how much better you will feel when you get down on the carpet to play with your furry friend knowing that the carpet is nice and clean. This feature really appeals to me for our household!

carpetplay

I’m also in love with the fact that it can easily go from hard to soft surfaces. We have both in our home, so this is a great feature. But most of all, haven’t we all wanted a self cleaning house? The Neato Robot vacuums bring us one step closer to that dream! The fact that they are also the best for pets is the cherry on top!

carpetcuteStay tuned, I’m going to be sharing how YOU can win this awesome vacuum for yourself very soon! Wouldn’t that be a fun win?

Etched In My Heart

Etched In My Heart offers pet lovers a wide variety of personalized gifts. They were nice enough to send us personalized frames for our dog and bird. Not only are they unique, but the frames are high quality too. We were also impressed at how quickly they arrived, and the packaging.

Etched In My Heart

Another thing we love about Etched In My Heart is that they donate part of their proceeds to The PetSave Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Bona Tucker in June 2000 as a rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption resource for domestic rabbits, cats and dogs. You can learn more (and see some adorable photos of the rescue at work) by clicking here.

Etched In My Heart was founded by Bob Tucker in 2007 based upon the need to provide pet lovers a custom gift or personalized frame that have beautiful designs specific to dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and birds. We loved that they included animals beyond just dogs and cats. As a bird owner we are always excited to find gifts that celebrate birds.

They offer a wide variety of pet lovers gifts and pet memorial gifts that you, many of which are one-of-a-kind designs that you will find nowhere else. Be sure to have a look around their website!

Dogs love getting mail too! #BarkBoxGifts!

BarkBox Logo

BarkBoxForMe

Baby is a very picky girl, so sometimes finding a treat that she will love is hard. Enter the BarkBox! Each month you can surprise your furry friend with new treats and toys from this awesome subscription box for dogs! Baby’s BarkBox arrived on her birthday, and somehow she knew right away that the package was for her!

Action shot!
Action shot!

We loved what came in our first BarkBox. The toy was a huge success, Baby was running around with it all day long, and she even tasted some of the treats (this friends, is saying a lot). Besides being filled with great items, we felt great about this dog box because the company donates 10% of proceeds on each box to animal welfare organizations!

BarkBoxDivingIn

Every month, Scout, the head dog at BarkBox, picks out four to six treats, toys and hygiene products to send to your dog. All their products are sourced in the United States, Canada, South America and New Zealand. They never send products that they don’t feel comfortable giving their own dogs. They don’t send rawhide or anything that’s been processed with formaldehyde. They are trying to get products with minimal processing and are moving towards limited and single ingredient treats. We love that!

BarkBox Box

We also love that BarkBox customizes the boxes to fit different sized dogs. We got the small dog box, and it was a great fit for our girl. What was in our box:

  • Pet Lifestyle And You (P.L.A.Y) We were thrilled to find an item from P.L.A.Y in our BarkBox! The P.L.A.Y zucchini toy was a big hit!
  • N-Bone Always nice when something can clean and freshen dog breath! The all-natural Pearly Whites chew bone is wheat-, corn- and soy-free.
  • Bocce’s Bakery Baby wasn’t sure what to make of the Truffle Mac & Cheese delights! The truffle was a very new flavor for her, and this was a new item that BarkBox introduced to us.
  • Happy Howie’s Happy Howie’s treats are all-natural, and convenient. Break them into tiny-sized training portions for a real treat.
  • Etta Says The 7-inch Crunchy Deer Chew is a natural way to keep your pup busy. Great for dogs with allergies.

BarkBox Sizes include:

  • Small & Cute (0-20 lbs)
  • Just Right (20-50 lbs)
  • Big & Bold (50+ lbs)

They also offer a range of plan lengths:

  • 1 month – $29
  • 3 months – $72 ($24 per month – save over 17%)
  • 6 months – $114 ($19 per month – save over 34%)
