The Happy Cactus and Platypus tender-tuffs were

designed by students from local Sarasota-based

Ringling College of Art & Design as part of a scholarship

competition hosted by dog toy manufacturer, 

SmartPetLove.

 

The top students were awarded a scholarship for their

design and were able to get real world experience

seeing their work go from concept to creation. 

Tu Cam Malaspina designed the tender-tuffs Platypus,

a 24-inch multi-function toy that can be stretched,

tossed, and shook to maximize play. It has a squeaker

located in its tail and one in its head.

 

Bea Patarata designed the tender-tuffs Cactus, a 10-inch toy with a squeaker and enticing shape

to keep dogs engaged and having fun.

Future production plans may include DeAnna Boyer’s concept for a line of toys called Cozi Cosmonauts, designed to embrace the bravery and companionship of our furry pets. 

 

We're also donating $5 from each sale of both the tender-tuffs Cactus and Platypus to Ringling College of Art & Design during October 2020. 

 

We’re excited for the opportunity to support local students!
