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!

Beneful Unleashed the 2014 Dream Dog Park!

Christmas came early for the dog-loving community of Prescott, Arizona, today as Beneful® unleashed the $500,000 Dream Dog Park renovation of Willow Creek Dog Park. The fire-station themed renovation marks the fourth half million dollar dog park transformation by the dog food brand.

Inspired by local resident and Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest Grand Prize Winner Linda Nichols’ contest entry, the $500,000 renovation of Willow Creek Dog Park transformed the park into a fire station-themed paradise complete with a red fire truck play area, fire hose shaped tunnels and a covered firehouse lounge area with tables for dog owners to enjoy.

“We know some of the best moments are those spent with our four-legged friends, and the importance of sharing a healthy and happy life together,” said Brent Gleckler, Beneful brand director. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the passion shown by dog owners across the country in the Dream Dog Park Contest, and we’re thrilled to unveil our fourth Dream Dog Park in Prescott.”

The Beneful Dream Team, consisting of Jason Cameron, licensed contractor and host of three popular TV shows –“Desperate Landscapes,” “Man Caves” and “Sledgehammer” – and national pet expert Arden Moore, brought the park to life; with Cameron managing the renovation and Moore overseeing the project from a dog’s point of view, ensuring all elements are stimulating and safe for all four legged buddies.

At the special unveiling event, Cameron and Moore joined Grand Prize Winner, Linda Nichols, her dog Callie, Beneful brand representatives, Prescott City Officials, and hundreds of two- and four-legged guests to celebrate the first day of play in the newly transformed one-of-a-kind park.

“The City of Prescott has always been a dog-loving town, and the transformation of Willow Creek Dog Park is a dream come true,” says City of Prescott Mayor Marlin Kuykendall. “We are so grateful to Beneful for bringing this awe-inspiring renovation to our community, and to Linda Nichols for sharing her passion for her best buddy and our city in her contest entry.”

Nichols was among more than one thousand dog owners who entered the 2013 Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest, and she was one of fourteen finalists to advance to the final round. The finalist entries were then judged by the Beneful Dream Team and those scores, along with public voting, determined the Grand Prize Winner.
